Otonabee Minor Hockey decided to keep fees the same as last year, however a $30 fundraising fee has been added. This fee goes directly to supporting the purchase of development equipment and training of bench staff.  It is included directly into the registration fee.

After JULY 17, a late fee of $150.00 will apply to ALL registrations, no exceptions.  Full fees must be paid no later than October 1, 2023 or your child will not be rostered to a team

 Otonabee Minor Hockey U7 Program Vision:

1.      Provide effective U7 hockey programming to all Otonabee residents who want it.

2.      Provide effective U7 hockey programming to all returning players.

3.      Provide effective U7 hockey programming to new players who are not Otonabee residents.

Our U7 programming follows the Hockey Canada development models and complies with the OMHA guidelines for U7 hockey

To maintain effective programming, we must limit the number of participants on the ice. We can accept 90 U7 players for the 2023-24 season (Our U7 program is for players under 7 years of age as of December 31st). 

U7 Registration Process:

We will accept registrations in a priority order:

1)      Otonabee residents

2)      Returning players from last season

3)      Siblings of returning players

4)      All other players

To start, we will register all priority 1 and 2 players.  

We will accept registrations from priority 3 and 4 players but will not guarantee them spots in the program.  They will be placed on a waiting list and our numbers will be re-evaluated on a weekly basis.


Please contact President, Brian Bickmore directly at [email protected].   

A member of the Executive will contact you for a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

If you are registering your first player ever as a parent for hockey in Ontario you must complete the Respect in Sport Parent Course mandated by the OMHA. 


If you have played hockey in another center and wish to register in Otonabee this season, please email the President at [email protected].  The President must create a transfer from your previous association to Otonabee to enable you to register in Otonabee.  This typically takes a few days to process.


Only One parent is required to complete the Respect in Sport Parent Course (RISP), again this is done after your child has been registered.  This is a one-time only course.  Your child cannot be rostered to a team until this is completed.  Full information about the Respect in Sports online parent course and link can be found HERE


To support "everyone can play" opportunities for children, please contact one of the groups in the attachment if you are in need of some financial help!
Please go to our Funding Assistance Options page for more information

Levels of Play

Otonabee Minor Hockey tries to offer 2 levels of play: Representative and Local League (also known as LEO League).  We do not adhere to the major/minor system so all players with residential compliancy are welcome to try out for the Rep Team regardless of whether they are in their major or minor year of a given division. 

Important to any player planning on playing at the Rep level at another center *** All Otonabee Residential players must register with our organization each season.  If you do not register with us the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) will not allow you to go to any other organization to play Rep hockey for any reason.

For example, if after registration there aren’t enough players for us to organize a Rep team in a given division, only the players that have registered with us will be allowed by the OMHA to try out for another rep team.  This does not apply to house league players.  Please contact the President of Otonabee Minor Hockey to request a 3.5 form to play Rep in your next closest centre.



All players who want to play with Otonabee Minor Hockey are welcome.  However, we must adhere to the OMHA rules and regulations.  Any player across the province can come and play in our Leo League (House League.)  There is no restriction and you need no release from your current organization to play in Otonabee.  

However, if your intention is to play on our Rep teams, there is a restriction enforced by the OMHA, based on your residency.  This eligibility requirement can be found in the OMHA Handbook.  Also in many cases, you must be registered with your home association before you can be allowed to change centers

Proof of age:

All new registrants will be required to provide a copy of their Birth Certificate at the time of registration.


The registrant will always register for the age appropriate division based on the OMHA Age Reference Chart for the current year.  

It is possible to play up or down a division but this is a case-by-case decision made by the Otonabee Minor Hockey Executive according to our operating procedures.  A movement must also be approved by the OMHA.  It is the exception, not the rule.
