SUBJECT:  Re-certification/Registration for the 2021/2022 Season

 

The OWHA is pleased to provide the following information regarding the upcoming 2021/2022 season. 

The OWHA officiating program continues to work with health officials, our Associations across the province and Hockey Canada to provide the most up to date information in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

We are all pleased to return to hockey but please continue to check the OWHA website regularly for any updates as protocols and impacts from the Covid-19 pandemic continue to effect hockey operations and our officials.

 

The OWHA has approved a return to hockey across the province starting September 1st, 2021. 

However, local health officials have put requirements in place that may differ among various OWHA Associations. 

OWHA teams are working through the registration and try out process. 

Beginning September 1st, 2021, OWHA officials may be contacted to officiate in inter-squad or try out games. 

Provided OWHA Associations comply with local health requirements, games are permitted to be 5 on 5 and follow regular hockey game structure. 

OWHA Associations may also utilize the 4 on 4 or 3 on 3 game format from the modified Covid-19 season from last year. 

As the season progresses, and dependent on local health regulations, it is anticipated leagues will begin to interlock in regular season games in October.    

 

OWHA officials who registered last season (2020/2021) and the season before (2019/2020) are eligible to officiate in OWHA sanctioned games until December 1st, 2021

Officials must register and attend an online recertification clinic and exam (all certification levels) prior to December 1st , 2021, to continue officiating for the remainder of the season.  

Returning officials who did not register in 2019/2020 or in 2020/2021 cannot officiate an OWHA sanctioned game until they complete a recertification clinic.

 

OWHA virtual recertification clinics are now posted for pre-registration 

The Clinic link to access the moduels and exam is not yet available.

Once it is available, you will be able to login to complete the modules and write the exam. 

 

OWHA officials are required to register in the Hockey Canada Registration (HCR) system to access clinics and mandatory components of recertification for the 2021/2022 season. 

There are changes to the HCR registration process, please see the information below for how to complete the new registration. 

Prior to attending a virtual recertification clinic, mandatory pre-requisites are required (please see the attached document for specific requirements).

 

Welcome back to hockey and the OWHA officiating program for the 2021/2022 season.
