Tryout Registration

All players must register, including returning Waxers players.

Please complete tryout registration no later than 48 hours before the first tryout for each team for which you are trying out.

Registrations are tied to a particular team. You do not need to register for your second or third tryout for a particular team.

If you are trying out for one team and get cut, you must register again for the second team's first tryout.


Tryout Paperwork

Players without the proper paperwork required to try out with the Markham Waxers will not be allowed on the ice during tryouts. NO EXCEPTIONS.

It is the responsibility of the player to obtain the proper paperwork from the association with which they played during the 2021-2022 season.


Tryout Fees

Tryout fee $26 for 90-minute tryout and $21 for 60-minute tryout.

Payment by credit/debit card only.


PTS Processing

LOR PTS processing will begin when the forms become available.

How to request a PTS form.


As per OHF Regulation E49 (“A player who resides in an OMHA LOR Centre/AAA Zone from U10 to U13 requires a release from his Centre of residence at AAA to tryout at AAA, at AA to tryout at AA, and at A to tryout at A with other teams in the LOR.”) and E54 (“From U10 to U13, teams must conduct tryouts and offer player registrations within the following timelines”) the following procedures with respect to player releases will be followed by all OMHA-LOR centres / AAA Zones:

  1. No player releases will be issued prior to tryouts.

  2. Player releases for U10 to U13 are at the discretion of the association in conjunction with the head coach.

  3. Player releases, for each category of AAA/AA/A as needed, can be requested if you attend a tryout and are not invited back to the next tryout for that category.

This procedure is in accordance with the LOR Regulation and there will be NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please refer to the OHF website if you have any questions.
