OHF Update on Initiation Program Implementation TORONTO, ON

The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF), in conjunction with Hockey Canada and its Minor Members, announced two solutions, Friday afternoon, to address issues faced by some minor hockey associations/clubs in the implementation of the Initiation Program in the OHF. Link to full news release.

 2011-born players who are on Select/Minor Development (Select) rosters of 2010-born Teams (as of September 23, 2017), are permitted to complete the season with that team. The team will not be required to participate in cross-ice hockey for the 2017-18 season.
   o In addition, OHF Members have the ability, upon request, to provide written approval from the Member to a Team to participate for this season only as a seven-year-old program, in those instances where players six-and-under are required to form a Team predominantly made up of seven-year-old players. The key criteria being that without the six-year-old players, those seven-year-old players would have no opportunity to play the game of hockey in their community.

 The Hockey Canada Board of Directors approved a request from the OHF, to delay the implementation of the Hockey Canada Initiation Program in the OHF (cross-ice hockey for game play) for Select hockey for 2011-birth year players for the 2017-18 season only.
   o Subject to above, Players who are non-residents of the GTHL are not permitted to roster with a Select team as a regular or affiliate player, if not on an approved roster by September 23, 2017.
