OMHA Removes Body Checking
Submitted By Vonnie Crawford on Sunday, March 1, 2015
At the OMHA Board of Directors meeting of February 22, 2015, a motion was approved that effective the 2015 - 2016 season, Body Checking will be removed from all OMHA recreational programming. 

Effective with the 2015-2016 season, the OMHA will commence a two year pilot project removing Body Checking from recreational hockey.This pilot will affect the Bantam, Midget and Juvenile divisions in those categories where Body Checking may remain, i.e. Local League (LL), and Minor Development (MD).

The OMHA seeks to provide programming to achieve objectives consistent with Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model, and provide players with opportunities within the recreational stream of hockey best suited to their development.
