Over 375 teams playing in more than 850 games. Five locations across the province filled with action-packed minor hockey. 41 champions crowned. More media attention. Welcome to the 2022 OMHA Championship Weekends presented by Egg Farmers of Ontario.
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is thrilled to announce details of our new playoff format. Among the many highlights, the new Championships will see everyone involved playing more meaningful hockey into March.
These new Championships still keep the tradition of #RedHats alive. #RedHats has become popular with everybody involved in the Ontario Minor Hockey Association. The ultimate prize in minor hockey remains the goal for all competing and will be distributed to the winning teams.
Leading up to the OMHA Championship Weekends, starting this year there will be important new league championships in each area. League playoffs will now turn into regional qualifying showdowns to see who moves on to compete for #RedHats. Parents can pack their rinks to show their community support and to cheer on the teams who will be punching their ticket to the OMHA Championships.
Leagues will determine their format of play to advance their assigned number of teams and identify the team(s) that advance by March 27.
HOW IT WORKS
Each League is assessed and assigned a Tier to ensure fair competition during the Championship Weekends.
Every League is guaranteed at least one representative at all age groups.
