Hockey has always been dependent on our volunteers to deliver our programs.
This year, more than ever, we have many more new volunteers stepping up. As many of you may have noticed, we have
started to cancel games for the second week in a row. This is due to a late
decision made by the OHF and OMHA. We have been mandated that our rosters must
be approved prior to any game being played. In a normal year, we have until December 1 to
submit finalized rosters.
A roster requires all bench staff to have approved certifications as well as the list of players. Due to the high number of teams we have this year, we have a number of new bench staff that are diligently working on getting their credentials approved as well as returning bench staff getting recertified. Once their rosters are submitted to the office, we then have to submit to the OMHA for approval.
At this time, our volunteers, our office and the OMHA are doing everything in our power to get our rosters completed and approved. It is our hope that games will resume early November.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
