Amalgamation Update
We would like to thank everyone that provided input on new names for the association.  Both EMHA and SMHA boards have reviewed the submissions and have compiled the top 8 list.  Please vote for your favourite name by visiting the following link!  The vote will remain open until Sunday. Following the vote, we will move onto selection of logo and colours.

For the 2022-23 season, the new association will remain 'A' classification.  It is our intention to remain an 'A' center, however, OMHA could overrule that classification for the 2023-24 season.

With the new association being formed, any player that lives within a shared boundary area for the new association will have a new right of choice.  This only applies to current EMHA/SMHA players that may want to move to another association within their shared boundary area.  This does not apply to players that have already made a right of choice and are playing for a different association.  They cannot elect to return to EMHA/SMHA.  The board recognizes that there may be a lot of questions surrounding this topic and have set up a form for parents to inquire.  Please use the link below if you want to know if you are in a shared boundary area.

NRP movement will be permitted with the new association.

Permission to skate form requests for AAA and AA NRP cards have been posted on the website and need to be received prior to tryouts.

Tryout schedules for U14 and older are now posted on the shared travel website.  Please visit the following link to view the schedule and tryout locations.

Tryouts for younger age groups will be in the fall, as per Hockey Canada and OMHA requirements. 

A checking clinic will be held on May 4th at 6 pm in Leamington for any players U14 and older that wish to play travel hockey and haven’t attended a checking clinic in the past. 

Please stay tuned to our website for more information.
