OMHA ANNOUNCES PAUSE IN PROGRAMMING FOLLOWING ONTARIO'S JANUARY 3RD ANNOUNCENT
Submitted By Chris Neale on Wednesday, January 5, 2022
Following the province’s announcement on January 3rd of Ontario Temporarily Moving to Modified Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen due to the increased case numbers of COVID-19, new restrictions have been put in place that will affect programming over the coming weeks.

In conjunction with this announcement, the OHF and OMHA are pausing all in-person programming (games, practices, on-ice and off-ice training etc.) in its entirety beginning January 5, 2022, at 12:01am until 12:01am on January 27, 2022, unless restrictions are eased by the Ontario Government prior to. The only exceptions are for athletes training for the Olympics and Paralympics and select amateur sport leagues who will operate via an approved framework from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.  




The OMHA believes in the mental and physical health benefits that hockey offers to our participants. We will continue to provide resources for our players to keep building their skills at home during this time. Additionally, we will support our Associations by keeping them informed of the latest updates as they are released. 

We understand this is a disappointment for everyone at the moment. We want to thank everyone for making hockey their sport of choice this season and we look forward to returning to the ice as soon as possible to get back to the game we love. To navigate the newly imposed restrictions by the Ontario Government and the decision to pause programming by the OHF - a complete Q&A is provided here.
