OMHA Non Resident Player Rule Revision 2017
Submitted By Martin Steele on Sunday, August 13, 2017
At the 2017 Ontario Minor Hockey AGM, there was a motion presented and passed, that now allows all players a once only chance per year to try-out for any lower classification center, other than their own home center, once they have been released.

This is allowed from only Minor Peewee on up thru to Major Midget.

This tryout does not have to be with next closest center to that player’s residence.

The criteria for this revised NRP process is as follows:

  1. In order to request a NRP passport, eligible players must pre-register with their home center for the upcoming season. NRP passports can be obtained by contacting the President or VP of Travel  from KMHA. (See KMHA website for details)
  2. In order to further qualify for a roster spot on a lower classification team, that NRP player must have exhausted all reasonable efforts or avenues by attending their home base center’s travel tryouts at either AA or AE in your case and being released.

  3. Once a NRP passport is granted to you and you are offered a roster position from that team of your chosen option for the upcoming year, you are required to return to your home center at the end of that year.

  4. If you are not offered a roster position from the team of your option at the end of their tryouts it is required you return to your home center for the remainder of that year. 

Addendum:
If you as a player have played the past season in the outlying smaller designated centres BB and below, such as Dresden, South Kent or Wallaceburg , you need to have attended our AA/AE spring tryouts for your age group with your home centre in order to be awarded a NRP (Non Resident Player) form to attend those Rep centre try outs for them, as per the OMHA policy 3.5 .

It is the Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s policy, who we at Kent Minor Hockey Association are governed by and who set out this and other policies for all us centres under their umbrella to abide by.

For this reason, Kent Minor Hockey Association cannot waive OMHA boundary designations or arbitrarily grant or waive a player a free pass around these OMHA policies to sign a NRP card for you.   

If as a player/parent you need more information on your situation, then contact our local District 1 OMHA Regional Executive Member [email protected]
