Return to Hockey Update
Submitted By Kal Deep on Friday, August 21, 2020
Thank you to all the Wolverines players who have registered so far!  We are excited to see almost all players from last year have registered and we have an increased number of players taking part in this year's fundamental program.  On Aug. 20th, representatives from the Wilmot Wolverines Executive attended a web meeting with the OWHA to discuss our local return to play procedures. 

With these policies in mind we are prepared to begin our return to the ice for Wolverines players starting on September 8, 2020.  As per OWHA guidelines there are no tryouts at this point and associations will be forming player groups/teams based on prior years experience and/or level of play keeping in mind group sizes that can be maintained for extended group play in the future.  Once the group is formed and on the roster as per OWHA at this time players must stay with this group as well the extended group they will be playing against cannot change. 

Our plan is to form competition groups with associations in our public health region for game play of 3 on 3, 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 depending on what health regulations allow.  These groups will be formed in rep level tiers and local league levels.  It is important to note that the extended regional competition group at this point cannot exceed 50 people (numbers set by government health care regulations). 


Please keep in mind that this is modified hockey and is not the traditional form of play due to the current situation.  Click the link below to see the full OWHA return to hockey guidelines which includes all on ice formatting.

We are currently working on registration costs which will be paid in installments.  These costs will automatically be posted and assigned to the player account you created when registering.  There will be further communication regarding your daughter's player group in the near future.

This season, more than ever, we are looking for sponsors to keep registration down.  If you know of a business, organization or individual you believe will be interested in sponsoring please contact [email protected].

We look forward to returning to the ice in September!

The Wilmot Girls Hockey Association Executive
