New Head Contact Rule
Submitted By Vonnie Crawford on Saturday, October 8, 2011
OMHA and Hockey Canada Launch Websites Dedicated to New Head Contact Rule for 2011-2012 Season

The new Head Contact Rule was unanimously approved at Hockey Canada’s 2011 annual general meeting, held in May in Calgary, Alta. The new rule calls for zero tolerance on any head contact in minor and female hockey in all 13 Hockey Canada branches and will come into effect immediately for the 2011-2012 season.

The OMHA and Hockey Canada are serious about working with administrators, coaches, trainers, officials, parents and players to create the fun, respectful environment we all expect in the game. The rule changes, combined with education, awareness, strong player development and respect for the game, will reduce injuries such as concussions and help to keep the game fun for all.

The OMHA has created a web page dedicated to the implementation of the new Head Contact
Rule for the 2011-12 season including videos of acceptable and unacceptable contact as well
printable resources such as Pre-Season Team agenda.

In addition, Hockey Canada has launched a new website, www.HockeyCanada.ca/HeadContactRule, dedicated to the implementation of the new Head Contact Rule in minor hockey across the country, including Hockey Canada resources for minor hockey associations, participants, parents and volunteers.
