2024-25 hockey season tryouts

Changes with Age Divisions (2007-2009 birth years)

With the recent changes to the ORHL division alignment and additional clarity on our NAPHL Prep Elite offering, we have modified our tryout process and teams for 2024-25. 


The following will help navigate these changes and where you should register:

  • Are you born in January 2007 to September 2007?
  • Do you NOT want to play full contact?
  • Do you NOT want to play in the NAPHL?
  • Next skate is May 5th 7:00pm Mainway Ice Centre (Rink 1)
  • Following skate is May 9th 9:30pm at Mainway Ice Centre (Rink 1)
  • Are you born in October 2007 to December 2007?
  • Are you born in 2008 or 2009?
  • Next skate is May 1st 9:30pm at Mainway Ice Centre (Rink 2)
  • Last skate is May 5th, if you are unsuccessful in making the U16 Prep team, you will be automatically moved into the U18 tryouts which start as the U16 Prep wrap up. 
Please note you do NOT need to register twice for U16 Prep and U18.  Following the information above, if you only want to play U18 ORHL - just register there.  If you are eligble and want to be considered for the U16 Prep team - register for U16, and if you're unsuccessful we will automatically move you over to the U18 ORHL team tryouts.  U18 tryouts will commence at the end of U16 Prep Elite skates. 
If you have any questions or wish to seek additional clarity, please email
