Hockey Canada and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association have announced new names for its age divisions which will take effect for the 2020-2021 season.

“We are looking forward to streamlining the names of our divisions and believe it will help make it easier for all families to understand in what division their children should be playing,” said Ian Taylor, OMHA Executive Director. “The change aligns with the names used on an International level and simplifies the process of registration.”
