Rep Director: Dennis Tondat (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Spring tryouts for the 2013/14 season will begin in May. Please visit the Schedules page and check back frequently as times may change.
Rep Coaches for 2013/2014 Season:
EHMHA decides to form AE teams in the Atom, Peewee, Bantam, and Midget divisions based on player turnout, and the willingness of association members to volunteer to coach AE teams. This decision is made during the B team tryouts in the fall and coaches are selected at that time.
Our Representative hockey program offers kids the opportunity to play competitive hockey - while still making player development and fun a top priority. Rep teams provide the additional challenge of competitive play against other communities.
Rep hockey involves additional commitments in terms of cost and time, but provides the additional benefit of more ice time - both for practices and games.
When are Rep hockey tryouts?
BB Tryouts will be held in the spring; AE tryouts will be held in the fall.
Who can try out for EHMHA Rep hockey teams?
Any registered player within the EHMHA boundaries as defined by the OHMA is eligible to be part of an Erin-Hillsburgh Rep team. Rep teams are open to both male and female players. Players in outlying areas (i.e. near Caledon, near Acton) may have to confirm their geographic eligibility. If you are unsure, please contact the Rep Convenor at email@example.com.
How much does Rep hockey cost?
In addition to a player's basic registration fees, Rep hockey players also pay an additional Rep fee of approx $300-$500 to cover additional expenses – primarily additional ice. A coach, with the approval of the parents may request additional funds to cover tournaments and additional team costs. The Rep budget should be discussed and approved by parents before any fees are collected. Each team manager is responsible to provide players and parents with a detailed budget.
What is the time commitment for Rep hockey?
Rep hockey starts with tryouts in early September and runs through to approximately March Break. Players will be on the ice approx 3 – 4 times per week; generally 1 and sometimes 2 practices, plus 1 home and 1 away game per week. In addition, most Rep teams can participate in 3 tournaments during the season, plus one at Christmas if they wish. The level of tournament commitment will be communicated to players and parents at the tryouts. Games and practices could take place both during the week and on the weekend, and because of the requirement to coordinate with out of town teams, a Rep team’s schedule is less consistent then that of a Local League team.
How far will the Rep teams travel?
The teams in our tri-county division could include Orangeville, Brampton, Acton, Georgetown, Dundas and Stoney Creek.
What is an AE team and will there be one in my child's division?
EHMHA runs one "B" team, and if the number of quality players exist, will run a second "Additional Entry" team known as an AE team. The decision to run an AE team will only be made after the first Rep tryout. All players wishing to play for the AE team must first tryout for the B team and be released.
What leagues do our Rep teams participate in?
All of our Rep teams take part in a 28 game tri-county season running from late September through to early January. Generally B teams compete in the "Harrison" tri-county division primarily against the "Additional Entry" teams from larger centres such as Brampton and Oakville, plus the first team of centres such as Acton. Generally AE teams compete in the "Russell" tri-county division primarily against the "Additional Entry" teams from medium sized centres such as Hespler, plus the first teams from smaller centres such as Arthur. In late January, teams begin their OMHA playdowns. If a team is eliminated in the first or second round of OMHA playdowns, they can then choose to participate in Tri-County playdowns.
