Tryouts & Releases:

For 2020/2021, the MHL’s “A” Team selection process will a bit different than in prior years.

As directed by the Ontario Hockey Federation, there will be no in-person tryouts throughout the Province for the 2020/2021 hockey season.  All Rep-level teams (A/AA/AAA) will be selected by coaches based on their prior knowledge of a players abilities.  Player registration and Team selection may begin on Sept 7, 2020.

Subject to any restrictions that may be implemented by local Public Health Units, players who reside in Mississauga, Toronto or Vaughan can be selected for any MHL/GTHL team without the need for any release/permission paperwork.

Players who reside in Oakville, Brampton, Markham, Richmond Hill, Pickering or Ajax are part of the OMHA Lake Ontario Region (LOR). Players residing in the LOR that were imports and played in the MHL/GTHL in 2019-2020 have the option to stay with the Association they were registered with for 2019-2020 or return to their residential Association. Specifically, for 2019-2020, imports in the MHL/GTHL at U13 and above (i.e. Peewee and up) in 2019-2020 may stay in the MHL/GTHL and register with any team in the MHL/GTHL or return to their residential association for 2020-2021.  2019-20 imports at the U12 age and below (i.e. Minor Peewee and below) may only stay in the MHL/GTHL if they stay with the Association they played for in 2019-2020.  They may not sign with a different MHL/GTHL Association.  Players from any other municipality may not be selected by any MHL/GTHL Association.
