Non-Sanctioned Hockey Leagues
Submitted By Michelle Brown on Tuesday, September 4, 2018
The NMHA is aware of Non-Sanctioned leagues in our area offering full ice “development games” for players, whom under the OMHA/ Hockey Canada would otherwise be ineligible to play in such situations.

In all fairness to our players, their families and volunteers, it is important for you to know that if you are registered or participate in these Non-Sanctioned leagues it will have an impact on your participation within the NMHA.  

Anyone who participates in these Non-Sanctioned leagues will be ineligible to participate in ANY OMHA program (including the NMHA) for the remainder of the season. 

Hockey Canada is our “parent” association.  They have invested much time and resources to ensure that players across Canada remain at the forefront in our hockey development.

Non-Sanctioned leagues undermine the big picture of our player development, as they do not follow the critical implementation that has been proven.  They are ungoverned and are not held accountable to any association.

With the changes to Cross/Half ice, we appreciate parents concerns, and even resistance, but we do ask that you trust those in charge to have our players best interests at heart. 

Please see the attached Hockey Canada/OMHA Memo Non-SanctionedLeagues

As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask!
