Non Sanctioned Hockey Teams and Leagues
Submitted By Administrator on Friday, June 23, 2017
In recent weeks, it has come to our attention that new local hockey associations such as the Hamilton Aces Hockey Club has joined, what Hockey Canada defines as, a “non sanctioned” league

and have been in contact with SCMHA members, these non sanctioned teams and leagues operate outside of the auspices of both Hockey Canada and USA Hockey. They are offering the lure of “rep” hockey, beginning next season, with ‘tryout’ sessions being held. We believe that it is important to educate our membership and the public about these non sanctioned organizations and leagues.

Please read this OMHA Bulletin -> Memo-Non-Sanctioned_Leagues

 To clarify the first sanction outlined in the document, once you participate in a non sanctioned program after Sept 30, 2017 you will lose all Hockey Canada membership privileges for the duration of the 2017/2018 season, and may only reapply for membership with Hockey Canada after the end of that season.  

Furthermore, SCMHA has now modified it's own tryout policies for the 2018/2019 season, SCMHA Representative hockey tryouts will only be permitted to registered members of Hockey Canada from the 2017/2018 season, meaning you will not be permitted to participate or tryout for any SCMHA Rep teams for the 2018-19 season and must wait until the 2019-20 season to be eligible for tryouts.  Please refer to the SCMHA 2018/2019 tryout policies which can be found on the Rep Hockey Link for further clarification.
  SCMHA feels it's important to support the local players, families and volunteers that support SCMHA.
