No Team Selection or Player Commitment at Any Level Prior to the Reinstatement of All Hockey Canada Sanctioned Activities

In reference to the communication issued on March 16, 2020 regarding the cancellation of Spring Tryouts in response to Coronavirus (Covid-19), no team selection or player commitment at any level may be issued until hockey operations have resumed following the Hockey Canada Board of Directors’ future decision when to reinstate all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities.

This information is regarding OHF Playing Regulation G2, which outlines that teams may conduct tryouts or related on or off-ice activities following the completion of the OHF Championships. However, since all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities are currently cancelled these dates do not apply. The Ontario Hockey Federation will be releasing a coordinated tryout schedule following Hockey Canada’s future decision when to reinstate sanctioned activities. The tryout schedule will guide Minor Hockey Associations, Female Hockey Associations, teams and clubs through Team Selection and Player Commitment requirements.

If such activities are conducted prior to the reinstatement of all Hockey Canada-sanctioned activities, tampering charges will be laid in accordance with OHF Playing Regulations G6-G9 and OHF Regulation 7.3.2.

The OHF is working collaboratively with Hockey Canada to ensure that any decisions of Hockey Canada, released after this memo that vary from this memo will be considered to ensure that our teams and associations are not disadvantaged in relation to other Hockey Canada members. The OHF and its Members will be in direct contact with all members to establish when sanctioned activities can resume and how they will resume.
