BODY CHECKING ELIMINATED
Submitted By SLMH on Friday, February 27, 2015
At the OMHA Board of Directors meeting of February 22, 2015, a motion was approved that effective for the 2015-2016 season, ​body ​checking will be removed from all OMHA recreational programming.  

Effective with the 2015-2016 season, the OMHA will commence a two-year pilot project removing body ​checking from recreational hockey. This will affect the Bantam, Midget and Juvenile divisions in those categories where ​body ​checking may remain (i.e. Local League and Minor Development). Body contact will only be allowed at the REP level for age groups of Bantam, Midget and Juvenile. 



This is an OMHA ruling​​ that the WOAA and local Minor Hockey Associations are mandated to follow.

The OMHA seeks to provide programming to achieve objectives consistent with Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model, and provide players with opportunities within the recreational stream of hockey best suited to their development.
