U9 Announcement
Submitted By Jay Allen on Friday, August 27, 2021
After careful consideration, the board of COWHA has decided not to offer U9 programming for the 2021-22 hockey season. 

This decision was as a result of our inability to secure the required ice-time and adequate staffing for a U9 team.  It was not a decision that was taken lightly and we are very disappointed in this result.   

When a centre/zone does not offer programming, for whatever reason, for a particular age division, OMHA Regulation 3.5 (“Exemption to Play in Another Centre”) takes effect.  

For any eligible player (by age and residential address), in this case being born in 2013 (and not later) and living within the zone boundaries of COWHA, they may apply to tryout at the nearest AAA centre/zone (that is offering U9 programming) to the address that the player regularly lives with their parents. As our zone is very large, this will mean that a player, depending where they live, may be eligible to tryout in one of Peterborough, Oshawa, Ajax/Pickering, Markham, or York-Simcoe.  This is not a personal choice.  The nearest AAA centre/zone will be determined for you.  

If your child is eligible and wishes to tryout at the nearest AAA centre/zone, please contact Craig Yule directly at [email protected]  Every applicant must be approved by the OMHA Regional Director and may only attend the tryouts of the one team determined by her based on the measurement process in place.  If the player is not successful earning a position with that team, they must return to their home centre.  If the player is successful earning a position with the team determined for them, this exemption is only valid for one season.  

All U9 applicants who have applied for tryouts with COWHA and paid their passport fee, will be refunded, in full, within the next day or two.
