If you are in favour of families taking a break from hockey during march break, please sign our online petition. Also, please forward this petition to any other hockey families who would be in support of a break during March Break. We are hoping to collect as many online signatures as possible before the OMHA Annual General Meeting June 7/8. For more details please see below. The Amherstburg Minor Hockey Association has put forth a motion at the June 7/8 OMHA Annual General Meeting to restrict hockey play down games from being scheduled for a period of seven days during March Break. We strongly support this motion and seek your support in achieving a majority vote to help get it passed. Discussions we’ve had with hockey families reveal some frustration with the lack of “break” in hockey during March break. Why? Taking a break from hockey at March break can: ● Allow for family time and “downtime” during March break, ● Help us plan family visits, activities and travel well in advance, ● Help keep the team together and support our coaches by ensuring a full roster during play downs, and ● Address the needs of all of our family members, including working parents and siblings. We need your help to pass the motion at the AGM. If you support taking a break from hockey at March break, please: 1. Email your local hockey association president (email address is available on your local association website) along with the following message: 2. Email to Richard Ropchan, OMHA Executive Director, and Joyce Junker, OMHA president, along with the following message: “I support motion #17 which restricts hockey playdowns during March Break. I request that you and all other active members of the OMHA vote in favour of this motion at the upcoming OMHA AGM.” 3. Forward this online petition to all parents you know who have a child registered in the OMHA who would be in support of this motion. Please send an email to if you’d like to get more involved or to learn how you can vote to pass this motion at the upcoming AGM in Richmond Hill. Thank you in advance for your support.
