The OMHA has released a statement that all eligible participants involved in minor hockey are to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for the upcoming season.



An excerpt from the OMHA Press Release;

"We’re committed to a return to hockey this fall. All along we have maintained that the safety of our players, coaches, officials, volunteers, staff, families and spectators will be our first priority in our return to the game. 
 

It’s with that objective in mind that the OMHA will be mandating that all eligible participants involved in minor hockey are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for the upcoming season.  All eligible participants are required to be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021. "
