The Orangeville Girls Hockey Association will be holding Competitive (Rep) tryouts this April, 2022. We want to make sure everyone is aware of some pertinent information on some of the policies and rules regarding tryouts.
REGISTRATION IN RAMP FOR TRYOUTS: All players MUST be registered in RAMP (Available Participant Packages). Click here to register: http://orangevillegha.rampregistrations.com/ This is to ensure players are insured before they step on the ice. If you played with the Orangeville Tigers last season, you will still need to register on RAMP. No permission to skate (PTS) form is required. If you played with another organization last year you MUST register on RAMP and bring a PTS form with you to tryouts and hand it in at the registration table.
** Please note - you must be registered in RAMP and have your tryout fees paid before tryouts **
COST FOR TRYOUTS: $60 flat rate (One time payment and covers all tryouts in that division BB/B). The OGHA will only accept etransfers. No cash or credit cards. Etransfers must be made before the player steps on the ice for the first tryout.
E-transfers should be sent to: [email protected]
The security question is: Name of the Game
The answer to the security question MUST BE: hockey
Please type the Name of the Player being registered and the Tryout Division in the message box so we apply the payment to the correct player.
TRYOUTS IN OTHER CENTRES: Any player wishing to participate in tryouts in other centres MUST request a Permission To Skate form from our Director of Competitive Hockey, Paul Mammoliti. Separate PTS forms are required for each centre where a player wants to participate in tryouts. In order to receive a PTS or Release from the OGHA, a player must be in good standing with the OGHA. All fees owing to their team and the OGHA must be paid in full. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours to have your PTS form processed.
As per OWHA rules: No player may participate in any OWHA sanctioned activity with a team other than her own team unless she has a properly executed Permission to Skate form or a release from her current association. Failure to comply will result in a minimum two (2) game suspension for the offending player and/or head coach.
SECOND TIER TEAMS IN A DIVISION: Parents have asked about the tryout procedure for divisions that may have a second competitive team. Based on our constitution we would like to note the following:
Part III, Regulations and Rules, Competitive Team Selection, Sentence 6:
When participating in Competitive Tryouts, the player must try out for the highest level in the division first or seek an exemption from the Competitive Director.
The reasons for having this in our constitution are as follows:
1. We strive to have the strongest and most qualified players at the highest level team.
2. Decisions for a second team are based on the number of players attending the tryouts for the highest level. This allows the association to know if there is a demand for a second team.
3. An exemption may be offered by the Association following a conversation with the parents of the players requesting the exemption.
NAMING COACHES FOR SECOND TIER TEAMS: The OGHA is still accepting coaching applications for U13B and U15B teams. If interested, applications can be submitted to the Director of Competitive Hockey, Paul Mammoliti up to 24 hours after the tryouts in each division.
TRYING OUT FOR A TEAM IN A HIGHER AGE DIVISION: If a player wishes to try out for a team in a higher age division, they must speak to the Director of Competitive Hockey, Paul Mammoliti, prior to the first tryout and be granted permission to do so. A player trying out for a team of a higher age division must be ranked in the top five players of that higher-age team (One of the top three forwards, one of the top two defense players, or top goalie) in order to be signed to the team.
