Registration Information and Cost for the 2020-21 Season
Submitted By Susan Burnett on Saturday, August 29, 2020
As we embark on welcoming back players for the 2020-21 season, Orillia Minor Hockey along with other Associations are faced with ensuring that we do so in a safe manner for all our players. 

During the past, several weeks we have been receiving information on the Hockey Canada Return to Hockey and the OHF Return to Play protocol and guidelines.  We have worked with our local municipality in the hopes to ensure that we are adhering to all our local health unit regulations.

The following information and program will commence on September 16, 2020.  Please note that during these ever-changing times we will evolve and grow as protocol and guidelines change.  

We thank you in advance for your patience. 

Commencing September 16, 2020, for two weeks a development phase will take place leading into a 4 on 4 program with no physical contact.  The program will end on March 13, 2021.  Teams will be provided with approximately 36-40 ice times.  Should the province repeal the current Stage and the program ends prior to March 13, 2021 a pro rated refund will be provided.  Currently as per the Public Health Unit teams will be in a “bubble of 50” or 4 teams that will play each other.  Each age group may have multiple divisions based on registration. All games will have one Official and one Timekeeper.  Games will adhere to Hockey Canada Return to Play game structure and rules.  Players should come with their own water bottle clearly marked with their name.  Teams will require a Coach and Trainer – more than ever we need volunteer bench staff! 
Please contact the office at [email protected]           

Tiered Program - There will be no tryouts.  Once registration is complete and if registration numbers allow, players will be put on teams based on where they played last year (Rep or House League).  Should this happen additional fees will be charged for any additional ice usage (Rep). 

Only one parent is to accompany a player of the younger teams and when possible, especially in the older ages, parents are encouraged to drop the player off and not come into the facility at all.  No additional spectators will be allowed inside the facility other than the one parent/guardian identified.   Players are to come to the facility dressed as much as possible .  The facility will be open to enter 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time and you must exit the building 15 minutes after the end of your scheduled time.  There will be benches available to put skates on.  Masks are mandatory and must be worn entering the building until helmets are put on just prior to entering the ice surface.  A mask must be put on immediately after leaving the ice.  There are no showers.  Each time you enter the facility you will be required to complete a health questionnaire and provide information for tracking purposes for the City of Orillia and Orillia Minor Hockey (some of these documents will be offered online – more information to follow).  If a player is feeling not well – It is VERY IMPORTANT to stay home. 

It is IMPORTANT to register by September 14, 2020.  Although registration will remain open until September 30th 2020, a player will only be permitted to play if there is still space available after September 14th 2020.  Please register early to ensure your child has a place to play. 
(As per Ontario Minor Hockey a player who does not register by September 30, 2020 cannot participate for the 2020-21 season.)   

As previously stated, this year’s registration and payment can ONLY be done by online registration and paid by credit card.  No exceptions this year.  To register go to and click on Registration. If you have not registered previously online, you will need to create an account with Hockey Canada. 
Follow the steps provided. 

The following are the costs for the 2020-21 season.  The OMHA Board has offered a $ 50.00 discount for the 2020-21 season which has been deducted from the cost.  Additional fees will be added if registration numbers warrant the tiering of the divisions and additional ice time is used. 

U7 (Tyke)  to  U13 (Peewee) $ 545.00
U15 (Bantam)  to  U21 (Midget/Juvenile) $ 560.00   

Mytes (first year skaters) – no decision will be made on the Myte Program (first year skaters) until late September as we look at ways to operate a program adhering to social distancing and the safety of these young players.   

A list of players who did not return their jerseys from last season has been provided to the hockey office.  Anyone on the list CANNOT REGISTER until the jersey is received back to the Association or payment made.  Should a member register without the return of the jersey their registration will be removed from the system and a refund provided less the cost of the jersey.
 If you still have not returned your jersey please contact Michelle Robitaille at [email protected]   

starting September 1st at click on Registration and follow the steps.  If this is the first time you have registered online paying by credit card you must first create an account.  Instructions are provided on the site.  Rowan’s Law, Covid Waiver and a questionnaire are all new this year and must be completed during registration. 

RegistrationNRP (Who Played last season with Orillia Minor Hockey) If you were a Non-Resident Player (NRP) with Orillia Minor Hockey during the 2019-2020 season you can return to Orillia to play for the 2020-21 season or return to your home Association.  If you do want to play in Orillia for the 2020-21 season please email the hockey office at [email protected] so that the office can obtain your profile from Ontario Minor Hockey to register online.   

Finally, the OMHA Board believes that with diligence and taking the necessary precautions by adhering to our local public health officials and provincial guidelines and working in conjunction with our municipality that we will have a flawless start to the 2020-21 season.  We will continue to take the necessary steps to return to the game of hockey as we know it.  We will continue to work hard throughout this unprecedented time to ensure that all players get back to the game safely.   No doubt there will be challenges along the way however, our commitment coupled with your understanding, support and patience we will overcome all obstacles and ensure we have the best 2020-2021 season possible.  We look forward to seeing you all on the ice. 

Together we are strong….GO TERRIERS!!
