7. Permission to Skate Forms

Also, in order to attend tryout skates, prospective players must have a Permission to Skate form (PTS), from their home centre
A permission to skate form is not required to attend the prep phase.

The PTS form verifies that:
a) the player is in good standing with their home centre, 
b) is a resident in their home centre and the Quinte Zone, and 
c) is therefore eligible to attend tryouts with Quinte AAA. 

Home centres might not issue the PTS forms until a few days before tryouts. You do not need the PTS form to register for tryouts, but please bring the form to the first tryout skate.

Please do not email PTS forms.

Please make sure to sign the PTS form.
If you do not have the permission to skate form, you will not be eligible to attend the tryout.Please do not try to get around this step. If you are not sure what this means, please contact your home centre. 

If you have questions please send an email to [email protected]

8. AAA Waivers
Waivers cannot issued until after the actual tryout skates begin. Waivers must be agreed to by the coach.
Please do not email and ask for a waiver before tryouts.

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 rule governing AAA Waivers)
OHF Regulation E32 is the OHF rule governing AAA Waivers.
In order for a player to be eligible for a AAA Waiver, a player must -
1. Register for try outs in their home AAA centre, 
2. Attend AAA try outs in their appropriate age division in their home AAA centre.
If the player has not signed, or been offered a card to sign by the 4th skate, they may ask for a AAA Waiver. 

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. The 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.
