Information for Players wishing to tryout for AAA, AA or A

The OMHA allows players to tryout and play, if selected, for teams outside of their home center at the AAA, AA or A level.  The following are the regulations and procedures for these tryouts:

AAA Regulations

Lincoln Minor Hockey is a member of the Niagara North Stars AAA zone and as such all players wishing to tryout for a AAA team MUST first register and attend tryouts with Niagara North teams of their age group.  Players released from Niagara North tryouts may then acquire an F1 release from the Niagara North organization which will permit the player to tryout with other AAA teams provided that they follow the proper guidelines when selecting their next center.  Niagara North can provide the player with the proper protocol at that time. 

AAA Process

Players must first acquire an OMHA Permission to Skate (PTS) for Niagara North from LMHA.  These forms are typically handed out during an evening session in early April.  Once the PTS has been received the player must then follow the Niagara North procedures for properly registering and paying for the tryouts.

Information about Niagara North AAA may be found on the website at

AA or A Regulations

The OMHA through it's "Made for Ontario" plan permits players to tryout and play for teams at the AA or A level.  Players from LMHA may tryout for either a AA or a A team but NOT both.  Once the player chooses whether they wish to tryout at the AA or A level, the determination of where the player is eligible to tryout is up to the player.  The player is entitled to tryout for any AA or A center , as listed in the players OMHA registry. 

AA or A Process

Players must first acquire an OMHA Non-Resident Passport (NRP) from LMHA.  The NRP passport will state which center and level the player is permitted to tryout for. NRP must be requested online and submitted for processing.  This may take up to 48 hours.   The player must then follow the protocol of the center that they are trying out for with regards to registration, payment, attendance at tryouts etc. 

Questions on this process may be directed to LMHA's VP of Hockey Operations at [email protected] 

NRP forms can be requested by  filling in the online NRP form found on our website

PTS forms are only available on April 12th at Seymour-Hannah in the Meridian Room from 6-8pm.  All players MUST pre register online first , link to be posted shortly.  Any LMHA players wanting a release must arrive between 6-8pm, there will be no one available after 8pm
