Vaccination Policy Update
The BMHA has been busy preparing for the upcoming season and part of this process has been to get some clarity as it pertains to the Vaccination policies. We will briefly outline the information we have been given but ask that you visit the sites of those mentioned within.

Recently, the OMHA, our governing body, announced that all participants and members of an organization including Players, Coaches, Trainers, Referees, Time Keepers, and Directors must be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.  At this time we are working with our Executive under the guidance of the OMHA on how to best to carry out the collection of this information.

OMHA Vaccine Mandate

All participants taking part in BMHA programming at National Training Rinks, or any other facility in which we are an ice user must follow the protocols of those facilities, please visit NTR’s website for their policies.
