Oshawa MHA Registration

Oshawa MHA requires that all interested participants register online by clicking U10+ Registration or U8/9 Registration .  Oshawa MHA uses the Tryout Player List to select/release players from teams.  This means that you will receive a Unique Code at your first Tryout with team that will be used to identify you on the Tryout Player List webpage for that team. A list of frequently asked questions is also on this page.

In order for the Tryout process to run successfully, it is highly recommended that ALL players  register by April 20, 2024. The registration will continue to be open after this.  If you cannot register online please contact:  Tryout Coordinator @ [email protected].

2024-25 Try-Out Policy

One of the primary objectives of Oshawa Minor Hockey (Oshawa MHA) 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 MHA to meet level of play requirements in accordance with the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) guidelines. These guidelines include that a AA 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 MHA must enter (i)  a “AA” team to enter a “A” 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 Oshawa Minor Hockey Board. Check with the relevant coach if you are not sure about what is acceptable.

Frequently Asked Questions.

I noticed an error on my Registration Form that I submitted, how do I correct it?

  • Forward your email you received with form submission data to the [email protected] email address with the changes you require.  It is preferred you do not submit another Tryout Registration Form, however, if you do the Tryout Admin will delete your original.

It has been 1 day since I submitted the form and I have not received my system generated confirmation email.

  • Check your junk mail first, and if not present then please submit another Tryout Registration Form as the email confirmation replies should be processed with 1-2 hours maximum.

I have forgotten my Code.

  • Double check with your child, if you still can’t find the Code then you must send an email to  [email protected] with your Players Name and team trying out for.  The Admin will search for your code and provide to you.

I have decided that I don’t want to start at the Level (i.e. AA) I submitted on the Registration Tryout Form.

It is not the last night of Tryouts and my Code shows on the site as Released, however, the same code is not on the team one level below.

  • As mentioned, when you are Released you will automatically be placed on the Level below, however, you will get a new Code generated.  The Head Coach of the new Level will be in contact with you as their first tryout night approaches.  Please be patient and trust that you are on that list. Do not submit a new Tryout Registration form.

I made the team, however, I can’t make the Parent Meeting night to provide cheques.

  • Please contact the Head Coach immediately and arrange to drop off as soon as possible.  The Head Coach must provide this information to the Oshawa MHA Registrar.

I was released from the Team but would like to speak to the Coach.

  • Please wait until the level of tryouts is complete as it is a stressful and emotional time for everyone involved.  If you have an immediate concern and can’t wait please contact [email protected].
