2013-2014 Try-Out Policy
One of the primary objectives of Oshawa Minor Hockey is to encourage players to compete at the appropriate level of competition to maximize their development both as players and individuals. Meeting this objective will enable the association and its members to put forth competitive teams for all levels of play.
In addition, it is the responsibility of Oshawa Minor Hockey to meet level of play requirements in accordance with the OMHA guidelines. These guidelines include that a AAA Association can not enter a team in a lower level of play if there is no team entered in the immediate level above. For example, Oshawa Minor Hockey must enter (i) a “AAA” team to enter a “AA” team. Players must attend all of the tryout sessions for the team they wish to play for. Absences for extenuating circumstances (i.e. illness, injury, etc.) can be permitted at the discretion of the coach. Check with the relevant coach if you are not sure about what is acceptable.
All players are required to attend, within their appropriate age category, one level of play higher than the level of play in their just completed season. For example, returning players at the “A” level for the just ended season MUST attend at least the “AA” tryouts for the upcoming season.
Any coach/staff who has been awarded a team, who also has a child at the same age group, MUST take his/her child to the tryouts for the immediate level above where the child played the previous season. If the coach from the team at the level immediately above where the child played last season would like to keep that child, the parent/coach of the child then has three options:
- Allow his/her child to play at the level above, and continue to coach the level below,
- Allow his/her child to play at the level above, but not coach the level below. Oshawa Minor Hockey will find a replacement coach for the team he was to coach,
- Allow his/her child to play at the level at which he played the previous season. In this situation, the parent will NOT be permitted to be part of the coaching staff. This rule will also apply to any and all potential staff/volunteer positions associated with the team which may be added after the tryout process.
- Player not attending appropriate tryouts or declining to play at the higher level will not be eligible (1)to AP, (2) to receive awards (3) become a Captain or Assistant.
If it is your intent not to tryout at one level above your recently completed season you must indicate your reason for your decision on your registration form in the comment area. You will be contacted by Oshawa Minor Hockey prior to the start of tryouts to further discuss your reason for not attending tryouts at the one level above your recently completed season. For players that choose not to attend the tryout level above and do not indicate their reason for not attending the level above on their registration form that player will not be permitted to attend the tryouts in the registered level of play until a meeting between you and Oshawa Minor.
Please be assured that your comments will help us determine how to improve our system and will only be shared with the relevant Oshawa Minor Executives and coach.
Due to time restrictions there will be no individual parent meetings held during tryouts.
As always, please consult the convener for the appropriate division or the Rep Team Chair for any clarification of this policy.
