GVDMHA Member Agreement

Registration 2003 brought the development of this member agreement. All families registering with minor hockey are expected to agree to the terms of this agreement and maintain the standards of behaviour laid out in the OMHA Code of Conduct.


Parental / General Concern & Compliment Form

The Grand Valley & District Minor Hockey Association is run entirely by volunteers, who donate their time unselfishly. We support the coaches and staff that have been installed. We know and you know that the time that coaches, assistant coaches, trainers, managers and board volunteers give of themselves is sometimes overlooked and underestimated. Many of us choose not to volunteer for various reasons. The success of our minor hockey program depends entirely on our volunteers and their level of enthusiasm. During the course of the minor hockey season, situations may arise that concern you. Remember to look at your situation with an open mind. Remember that the volunteers of our hockey system are looking after the interests of all the players, and teams, not just one player or team.

However, we do take your concerns seriously. If you have a concern, please download this form, print and sign your name in the appropriate spaces. Please write a short paragraph explaining your situation or concern and give it to any of our board members. It will be put on the agenda of the next board meeting. It will be kept in confidence and you may be asked to explain your situation in greater detail to the board at a future meeting.

On the flipside, please feel free to offer thanks and compliments via this form as well. If you like something we are doing, or think that one of our volunteers is doing a great job and should be recognized for such, please let us know.


OMHA Mouthguard Policy


Concussion Card

Any time a player participates in contact sport, there is a risk of injury. Concussions are one injury that can be found in hockey, but the symtoms are often missed or misdiagnosed. It is important for everyone involved: players, team official, parents and hockey administrators to be aware of the symtoms and effects of concussions. This handout is taken from the Hockey Canada website and is all about concussion awareness.

Please note that this is just an application. It is the applicants’ responsibility to become familiar with the policies of GVDMHA. Section 6 of our Rules of Operation details the responsibilities and expectations of team officials. You can download a copy of the Association’s policies from our handouts section, or contact minor hockey to receive a copy.

If you are interested in coaching or helping with a team, please submit your application by June 28, 2011. Ensure that you have filled in the application completely and feel free to attach any additional information you feel is pertinent.

All members of the bench staff must be fully certified as required by OMHA as well as Prevention Services and Police Record Check before they will be approved on a roster or allowed on a bench during a game. Anyone with expiring certification in 08 or prior must update their certification before they will be approved on a roster.
