OMHA Ruling on Transfer Players
Submitted By Jane Ann McLean on Monday, September 8, 2014
TMHI has been notified that due to low registration numbers in some of our surrounding Centre’s they will not be able to field a representative team in certain divisions. OMHA policy, states that if TMHI is the next nearest center, the players from the other centres will be afforded an opportunity to try-out for our Rep program.

Please see OMHA by law 3.5 Exemption to play in another centre, pg. 91 in OMHA manual states that  the player is able to “try out for a team in his/her own age division in the next nearest Centre from his/her residence which can provide him/her with hockey.”

The TMHI representative coaches have been advised of the possibility of players coming from other minor hockey associations.  The coaches have been asked to evaluate the transfer players at either a representative ice time slot or AE ice scheduled try out. The transfer player should notifty OMHA and notify Brenda Horvath at [email protected] of their intent to transfer to TMHI, , and will be required to pay a non-refundable $30 try- out fee.
If the transfer players do not make the representative team they will be released to try-out for our AE teams. If the transfer players are released from the AE they will play local league at their home centre.

Please be respectful of the situation, and respect the players, all parents and coaching staff during this procedure. The timing is difficult due to our scheduled final cuts on Sunday September 8th, however it is TMHI’s obligation to allow the other minor hockey association’s players the ability to play at the level they are able to based on their ability.
Thank you for understanding and patience during this process.

TMHI Executive
