Addendum to OMHA RTP Framework
This document serves as an Addendum to the OHF Return to Play Framework document and
Hockey Canada Safety Guidelines document. This was developed to provide programming and
protocols specific to the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) within OHF Stage 3.
Throughout this process, we will continue to ensure all return to play puts the safety of our
participants first and foremost.
OHF Return to Play (RTP) Framework
The OHF RTP Framework document provides the foundation for hockey programming across the OHF. This document details multiple stages within Stage 3. Transition through these stages will be based on the direction of the Government of Ontario and in consultation with Public Health Units (PHU). The OHF has developed multiple levels within Stage 3 as the Ontario Government Stage 3 will continue to modify over time.
• Stage 3a - Return to Ice Continued August 15 to August 31 OMHA approved Programming in Geographic Area that is in Ontario Government Stage 3
NOTE: 2019-2020 season insurance coverage expires as of August 31, 2020
• Stage 3b - Return to Practice and Play - Registration for 2020-2021 - September 1 onward Member Approved Programming in Geographic Area that is in Ontario Government Stage 3
Player Registration may continue with payment effective immediately for Association programming for the 2020-21 season. Player Registration includes Hockey Canada Insurance coverage. Cohort/Bubble Players are to be grouped to a maximum of 50 or less depending on the PHU. The OHF will review the maximum number permitted upon amendments by the Ontario Government. The number of 50 refers to players only. Bench Staff are not included in this cohort/bubble.
Teams will be rostered to a maximum of 9 players + 1 goalie. Five (5) Team Officials can be rostered to each team, however, one Coach and one Trainer can be on the bench during 3v3 & 4v4 games in order to maintain physical distancing on bench.
