Here is some useful information about AAA Waivers. Please read carefully if you might require a AAA waiver at some point in the process.What is a AAA Waiver?
A Waiver is a document that is used in AAA minor hockey to document and control player movement between AAA centres. It is not a "release". It is simply an electronic document that verifies that a player is able to tryout in an adjacent AAA centre.
What is OHF Regulation E32? (ie. The r
ule governing AAA Waivers)
In order to be eligible for a AAA Waiver, a player must register for AAA try outs, attend AAA try outs in their appropriate age division and not have signed, or been offered a card to sign, with that club/association/zone team. For an adjacent AAA club/association/zone team to permit a non-resident player to try out the player must provide a copy of the Electronic AAA Waiver either printed or emailed. Players not signed or offered a card in accordance with OHF Regulation E32 are entitled to apply for a AAA Waiver, and no request for the Waiver shall be unduly denied or delayed.
What is the process for obtaining a AAA Waiver?
Players must participate in tryout skates in their home AAA centre so that the coach has an opportunity to assess their skill level. If a player is released, they may request a Waiver
home AAA centre creates the waiver form on the OMHA website, and a copy is automatically sent to the parent requesting the waiver, OMHA, OHF, and the home AAA centre. After receiving a copy of the waiver form via email, the parent would then contact the adjacent AAA centre, and bring the waiver to a tryout skate.

Please do not wait until the last minute to request a waiver.
What if I obtained a waiver last September? Does it still apply?
Players who obtained waivers last September in the U10, and U12 age groups may use those waivers for their U11 or U13 seasons. (This rule only applies in the "minor" year of an age group and goes back to when the age groups were referred to as "atom" and "peewee". Therefore it does not apply to waivers obtained by players last September in the U12 and U13 age groups.)
(A different system was in place for U14 and U15 athletes who participated in tryouts in April 2022.)
