IMPORTANT: To all LMHA Coaching Staffs:
As we begin the 2022-23 season, the officiating group for the OMHA in Essex County have set up important information sessions for ALL coaches (house league and travel)
in all local Associations.
Meeting 1 - Monday, September 19, 2022 7pm to 9pm
Meeting 2 - Wednesday, September 21, 2022 8pm to 10pm
Meeting 3 - Wednesday, September 28, 2022 7pm to 9pm
All meetings will be held in the lower meeting area at the Essex Arena (right by the Shaheen rink on the ground floor). There are a number of new rules for this season including a new section on maltreatment. A few representatives will be present and will be available after the meeting to field questions/comments.
This is YOUR time to learn and be aware of new rules and policies. We require at least one, and even better, two people from each coaching staff be present so that nothing is a surprise when the season starts. You need to attend only one (1) of the above sessions. Again, this is for both travel and house league coaching staffs. On-ice officials have already received training regarding the new rules.
The local OMHA referees representatives ask that we DO NOT send everyone from our Association on one night, we need to spread it out so everyone can get into one of the sessions. These meetings are for you and the Associations so you will be aware of what the new emphasis and rules are for the new season.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
