PTS? NRP? 3.5? Which form do I need???
Submitted By Jason Cliff on Tue 08 31, 21
With the beginning of the 2021-2022 hockey season, questions arise from parents looking to play different levels of hockey not provided by their Home Centre. In this article, we try to decipher which form is which. 

Manvers, just like all other Three County Centres, is classified as a “resident restrictive program”, meaning that a player that wants to play “Rep” (OMHA) must play at their “Home Centre”, according to where they live. Residential eligibility rules are initiated by Hockey Canada and enforced by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA).

When a player’s Home Centre is not capable of providing a “Rep” team, the player needs permission from their “Home Centre”, to try out for another Centre. This permission, comes by way of different forms, for different situations. First off, there is no such thing as a “release” in minor hockey. Permission is granted by the players “Home Centre” for a 1 (one) year period. The forms are issued by our 3 County/OMHA Rep, however, permission is ultimately granted by representatives of the OMHA. Another point that is important to note is Manvers Minor Hockey does not make the rules, but we are required to operate within them.

This guide is meant to try and clarify which form you will need to request if your child will be trying out at another Centre. If a Centre is following OMHA procedure, your child will NOT be allowed to try out without the proper form.

Permission To Skate (PTS)

A PTS (Permission to skate) form is required to try out for AAA. Manvers Minor Hockey's AAA Zone is the Central Ontario Wolves. A player must first register with Manvers Minor Hockey, before this form will be issued. Parents will need to fill out an online request found on our website, under the registration tab.

 

Non-Resident Player (NRP) Form

An NRP (Non-Resident Player) form is required to try out at a “AA” or “A” Centre. The NRP is only available to players in Minor Peewee or older age groups. Players, under an NRP, are allowed to try out for a “AA” OR “A” base category Centre. The “AA” base category Centres surrounding Manvers would be Peterborough, Clarington, and North Durham. The “A” base category Centres surrounding Manvers would be Orillia and Quinte West. A player can only be issued 1 (one) NRP form. If a player doesn’t make the “AA” team, they cannot be issued another NRP to try out for an “A” team. It is also important to note that a player cannot try out for the “A” team at a “AA” base category Centre. Parents will need to fill out an online request found on our website, under the registration tab.  

 

3.5 Request Form

This form is an exemption to play in another Centre. This is a request form for players looking to tryout at another Centre. According to OMHA Regulation 3.5 a) ii), a player may tryout only at their NEXT CLOSEST CENTRE, provided that Manvers does not field a representative team at that division. Determining your next closest Centre, is based on the distance of your residence to the Associations “Centre Point”. Similar to the NRP, a player can only be issued 1 (one) 3.5. If they are unsuccessful when trying out for the other Centre, they must return to their home Centre.

IN ORDER FOR A PLAYER TO RECEIVE A 3.5, THEY MUST BE REGISTERED WITH MANVERS BY THE REGISTRATION CUT-OFF DATE (SEPTEMBER 3RD, 2021). IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED WITH MANVERS, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A 3.5. 

Hopefully this guide helps to clarify the various OMHA forms and their usage. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact our 3 County/OMHA Rep, Chris Jones at [email protected]
