Some Minor Hockey Associations like the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) tell you were your child must play hockey. (residency rule)
One would think, that you as a parent would know whats best for your child.
But today the OMHA tells all parents where their children must play hockey. If you (as a parent) don\'t like where you are told your child must play, than you can take your child to another team or centre, right
Wrong! Unless you get a release, than your child is stuck playing for a team which you don\'t approve of or the association that is poorly run.
What ever happen to freedom of choice in Canada
Gee.... if my child was taking golf lessons and I was unhappy with the golf instructor, I would take my child to a different golf course and a different golf instructor.
But Minor Hockey Associations like the OMHA, tell you where your child must play hockey.
You have no say at all!
Is this fair
Should you not have a say
By signing this petition, you are telling associations like the OMHA, that this is no longer acceptable.
Parents want more say in their child\'s hockey development.
