2015-16 SLMHA OMHA TRYOUT FEES, DATES AND PROCEDURES RELEASED
Welcome to another year of Thunder Hockey. This year we will be hosting try-outs for all OMHA Teams in August and early September at the Lindsay Recreation Complex. Check the website for exact times. If your son/daughter is unavailable to attend either of the first two try-outs, he/she is to contact the appropriate OMHA coach and cc Brian Taylor at
. The objective is to get the OMHA teams chosen earlier, so that we have more time to find Three County Coaches and distribute the players as per TC regulations and policies. Three County ice times will start in early September at the Fenelon Falls Arena.
If you are interested in being a coach, trainer or manager for your son/daughter's team, please send a quick e-mail to:
With the success of last year’s sessions, SLMHA will again be implementing “Skills Development Programs” for the 2015-16 hockey season.
1Try-out Attendance: If your son/daughter is planning to try-out for the OMHA team, please contact the respective coach asap, so that the ice time will be used efficiently.
2Try-out Passport/ID #: The cost for trying out for the Tyke Black, Novice OMHA through to Bantam OMHA will be $100.00 per skater. These fees which will aide in paying for the additional ice costs and will cover your child’s related Skills Development Program. Note: All players trying out for an OMHA team must be registered and ALL registration fees paid in full prior to August 1st. Goalies will not pay a try-out fee.
3Skills Development Programs: There will be two (2) programs offered.
aThe OMHA Skills Program (Tyke Black - Bantam) will be MANDATORY for all OMHA & Tyke Black players and up to three Affiliated OMHA Players. It will provide 6 sessions of instruction from October through January and cost $70.00.
bThe Three County Skills Program (Tyke White - Bantam TC) will be MANDATORY for those players that tried out for an OMHA team, but did not succeed. It will be optional for any player that does not attend try-outs and is playing on a Three County team. It will provide 4 sessions of instruction from October through January and cost $50.00.
cThe Goalie Skills Program (Tyke - Bantam) will be optional for any goalie. It will provide 5 sessions of “Goalie Training” from October through January at a cost of $70.00.
Therefore, if a child is trying out for an OMHA team, he/she will be required to pay an additional $100 prior to the first try-out, if not already paid with registration fees. Thirty dollars ($30.00) will pay for the Try-out passport/ID # and the balance will be used to fund the Skills Development Program in which the child is placed. The Skills Development Program is Seventy Dollars ($70.00) for OMHA Players or Fifty Dollars ($50.00) for Three County Players that tried out for an OMHA team. If placed in the Three County Skills Program, a $20.00 refund will be granted ($100.00 Fee -$30.00 Try-out -$50.00 Skills = a $20.00 Refund)
IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT TRYING OUT FOR AN OMHA TEAM HE/SHE HAS THE OPTION TO ENROLL IN THE THREE COUNTY SKILLS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM AT A COST OF $50.00 FOR 4 SESSIONS. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT ALL PLAYERS PARTICIPATE AS THE ASSOCIATION IS SUBSIDIZING THIS PROGRAM ON BEHALF OF ALL PLAYERS.
