Affiliations

LMHA Affiliation Guidelines 

LMHA strongly encourages player affiliation as a means to develop players, as well as ensuring that teams are able to ice enough players for games. In order to play in games, players must be  registered in TTM as an affiliate player for that team, by signing and submitting the player  affiliation permission form. That player will join the team’s official roster and will be eligible for  game play in the league and tournaments. 

Affiliation is a game-based process. Players do NOT need to be formally affiliated to join a  practice, so long as the team that they are drawing from is a valid affiliation team. 

Affiliation Process for House League Coaches:

  1. E-mail your convenor, clearly identifying three things:
    1. Any specific players that you would like and which team(s) they are on,
    2.  Any generic requests for affiliation (e.g. 1F and 2D), 
    3. Which players from your own team are top candidates to affiliate to the higher age group and/or tier. 
  2. The convenor will review and approve a list of affiliates for your team, ensuring that the  top players are spread across your category (e.g. across the four U15 B teams)
  3. Complete the affiliation permission form for approved players, getting it signed by; the player, the player’s parents, and both coaches.
  4. The permission form is then submitted to your convenor and registrar@leitrimhockey.ca for submission to the GHA and entry in TTM

Affiliation Process for Rep B Coaches:

  1. E-mail head coach of the player's team
  2. Complete the affiliation permission form for approved players, getting it signed by; the player, the player’s parents, and both coaches.
  3. The permission form is then submitted to registrar@leitrimhockey.ca for submission to the GHA and entry in TTM

Callup Process 

For practices; contact the coach to ensure they don’t have a game conflict. No paperwork or TTM entry is required 

For games; the coach wishing to use a player as an affiliate must contact the coach prior to  speaking to the player or the player’s parents. This is a courtesy among coaches and ensures  that any outstanding suspensions or other issues are known and respected. 

All affiliations for games MUST be entered in TTM prior to the start of the game

Coaches using affiliated players must notify the affiliate's regular coaching staff following a  game should injuries or suspensions occur.  

Suspensions are always served with the registered team (it does not matter which team the player got the suspension with) unless the affiliate is away at a tournament with his/her  affiliated team.  

Affiliation Rules 

  • House League and Rep teams will use the Specialty 19 System.  
  • Players may only affiliate to certain higher category/division teams (See Appendix C & D); ONE  TEAM PER CATEGORY, not just one team.
    • A category is defined as A/B/C/RepB/AA/AAA/U18. 
    • For example: a U13 House A player could affiliate to one Rep B team, one U15 House A team, and one U15 House B team, per the chart below 
  • GHA Rules & Regulations Appendix C: GHA House Affiliation Chart
  • GHA Rules & Regulations Appendix D: GHA Competitive Affiliation Chart
  • The player must be affiliated by completing the Specially Affiliation Form  for each team the player is affiliated to.  
  • Once the form is signed by the player, parents, and coaches it is submitted to the Registrar for  approval by the District Chair prior to participating (game or special event).
    • The player will be then added to your official roster. 
  • Affiliation is a game-related process. Players do not need to be affiliated in order to practice  with a higher Division or Category team, provided they are duly rostered at the lower Division or  Category. 
  • A player may play a maximum of 15 games with the affiliated team. Goalie affiliations are  unlimited 
  • Teams should affiliate players from more than one team so game conflicts can be avoided. 
  • Only players that will be used in games should be affiliated 
  • Teams may affiliate to increase their roster up to 15 players in a game (excluding the  goaltender), regardless of the size of their normal roster 

Coaches should read and understand the following documents regarding affiliation:

Any further questions on affiliation can be directed to vphockey@leitrimhockey.ca

The coach is ultimately responsible for their team and can be suspended if mistakes are made.  If in doubt, always check! 

Safety Forms & Information

HEO provides a comprehensive list of resources for trainers here.

Hockey Canada also provides a wealth of information under it's safety downloads section.

Tournaments & Travel Permits

Travel Permits - Tournaments in Canada

Roster

Rosters must be submitted to the tournament organizer before the tournament or be provided at check-in (check with the tournament organizer).

Upon arrival at the tournament, you will need to provide the following:

  • Official team roster - obtain this from your convenor.
  • Travel permit
  • Game sheets from previous games (Bell Capital Cup requirement)
  • Proof of club affiliation

It is a good idea to save your official team roster to your smartphone as well as photos of some recent game sheets.  Most people don’t forget their smartphones!

How to find tournaments?

Tournaments can be found on the HEO website at the following link: http://www.heominor.ca/tournaments

Additional out-of-town tournaments can be found by using popular search engines.  We would encourage you to also ask other coaches, parents and coach mentors to find recommended out-of-town tournaments.

Sanctioned Tournaments

Any tournament you register for must be sanctioned by a Hockey Canada-approved Association.  For example, all tournaments held in the ODMHA geographic boundaries MUST be sanctioned by the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association (ODMHA).

Note that if your team enters a tournament that is NOT officially sanctioned, the implications are:

  • the coaching staff and players are subject to suspensions.
  • players and team officials are not insured under Hockey Canada's insurance policy.
Game Sheets

How to Complete a Game Sheet

Please click the link HERE to find a detailed image of a game sheet with instructions on how to fill them out.  Please note this is a multiple-page document.  You will need to view all pages of this document for full instructions on how to complete a game sheet.

Other important information:

  1. It is the responsibility of the Home Team to provide a game sheet, scorekeeper, and timekeeper for every home game.   This occurs whenever you are the home team, regardless of the rink that you are playing at.
  2. It is easier if you prepare team stickers/labels of the player and coach information to apply to each game sheet.
  3. Home team must enter scores into TTM within 48 hours.
  4. Any teams with suspensions listed on the gamesheet must enter the suspension(s) into TTM within 24 hours of the game.
  5. Game sheets, where a suspension has been served, should be scanned and emailed to the Director of Discipline at Discipline@Leitrimhockey.ca.
Game Changes & Switches

Game Switches and Reschedules

If a team cannot make a game due to acceptance in a tournament or other just cause, the game must either be switched with an existing game on the GHA schedule or rescheduled entirely.

The first option should always be to switch the game within your current schedule. This causes the least disruption as referees may already be booked and games are normally scheduled in blocks at the same level (e.g., three U15 games together so the referees go to the Arena for several games).  You are not limited to the number of games that you can switch but are only allowed to reschedule one game per year unless otherwise approved by the GHA VP House League.

The GHA Rules regarding schedule changes are located at the bottom for your reference.

How do I Switch a Game?

Game switches are easiest made near the beginning of the season when you have the most options.  Please do not wait too long or your options may be too limited. Some tournaments wait to the last minute to accept teams so be pro-active and do the switch “just-in-case”.

You may switch with any team within the same division** (e.g., U11 A, B or C). Alternatively; teams are permitted to switch games with teams on the list of divisions/classifications approved as an acceptable alternative for their division (see below). The team making the request must submit the GHA Game Switch form to their GHA Convenor providing a minimum of 7 days notice.

GAME SWITCH ALTERNATIVES (if needed)

U11 A-C can switch with U13 B-C or Vice-Versa

U13 A can switch with U15 A-B or Vice-Versa

U15 A-B can switch with U18 A-B or Vice-Versa

** For U13, U13 A teams should only switch with other U13 A teams (and U15 A-B teams, as noted above), and U13 B-C should only switch with other U13 B-C teams (and U11 A-C teams as noted above). This is because games for U13 A teams and above have 3 referees, while games for U13 B-C teams and lower divisions have only 2 referees.

Find teams that don’t have a game that would conflict with the date/time you need to switch (e.g. not already playing that day).  Next, look at their schedules to determine a suitable time when they play either your current opponent or another team that is available.

The requesting team must provide a minimum of 7 days notice to GHA Convenor and Head Coaches are responsible to reply to all game trade or game cancellation requests within 24 hours of receipt.  However, respond as quickly as you can.

Game Switch Examples:

Example 1: Leitrim U13 A2 has a tournament November 26-28, 2021 but has a league game on November 27 versus Cumberland A3:

Game ID Game Date and Time Arena Away Team Home Team
HLPWA46 Sat, Nov 27, 2021
6:00 pm
RICHCRAFT LETRMHAWKS2 CUMBERLAND3

After looking at the schedule, you determine that the following teams don’t play on November 27, 2021:  Blackburn A1, Cumberland A2, and Leitrim A1.

Cumberland A3 is the home team on November 27, 2021 so you try to keep that intact by looking at the schedule to find a time when Cumberland A3 is home to either Blackburn A1, Cumberland A2, and Leitrim A1.

You discover that Leitrim A1 is playing Cumberland A3 on February 12, 2022:

Game ID Game Date and Time Arena Away Team Home Team
HLPWA83 Sat, Feb 12, 2022
5:00 pm
SENECAL LETRMHAWKS1 CUMBERLAND3

You check your and determine that you (i.e., Leitrim U13 A2) are available to play February 12, 2022.

Next, you go to the GHA coaches/managers listing to obtain the e-mail addresses for the teams involved in your switch request:

http://www.gloucesterhockey.ottawa.on.ca

Contact the team(s) involved to request the switch.  If all teams agree, complete the Game Switch Form  and submit it to: GHA@LeitrimHockey.ca with “LMHA Game Switch Request + (name of team – e.g.  U13 A2)” in subject line.

The GHA Convenor does not need to be copied on conversations between teams but only when the exchange has been agreed upon. However, if you are having difficulties in finding an exchange or cooperation from teams then the GHA Convenor may be able to assist you.

The request will be validated and sent to the GHA to have the official schedule revised. All Game Switches received by Sunday at noon will be posted each Monday night. This is your confirmation that the change was approved. Please be sure to check the website to ensure the information was captured correctly.

After the change, you will keep your game number but play at the new date and time (and possibly, arena):

Game ID Game Date and Time Arena Away Team Home Team

BARE CUMBERLAND2 LETRMHAWKS3

After looking at the schedule, you have made some attempts to switch with U9 B and U9 A teams but they were all in tournaments and unavailable.  Next, you checked the U9 C schedule and found that the following teams don’t play on October 24, 2021: Blackburn C1, Cumberland C2, Cumberland C3, and Metcalfe C1.

Next, you look for a date when two of these teams are playing each other when both you (Leitrim B3) and Cumberland B2 would be available.

You discover that Blackburn C1 is playing Cumberland C2 on November 6, 2021 and that neither Leitrim B3 nor Cumberland B2 are playing each other that day:

As in the previous example, go to the GHA coaches/managers listing to obtain the e-mail addresses for the teams involved in your switch request and contact the teams involved to request the switch.  If all teams agree, complete the Game Switch Form  and submit it to: GHA@LeitrimHockey.ca with “LMHA Game Switch Request U9 B3” in subject line.

The request will be validated and sent to the GHA to have the official schedule revised. All Game Switches received by Sunday at noon will be posted each Monday night. This is your confirmation that the change was approved. Please be sure to check the website to ensure the information was captured correctly.

After the change, you will keep your game number but play at the new date and time and be the home team even though the arena is Ray Friel:

May I Decline a Game Switch Request?

In accordance with the GHA Rules & Regulations, teams may only refuse to trade game times if they already have a league or tournament game scheduled on the suggested “New” date. Teams may not refuse because of scheduled practices or because of players/team officials who would be absent because of the “New” date.

Be advised that this may mean that you will end up playing the game at another arena that may be less convenient for your team.  Again, the goal is to keep the ice/referee bookings intact so the fact that the arena is less convenient is not grounds for refusing a game switch request.

How do I Reschedule a Game?

If a game switch is not an option and you need to reschedule the game, the  OTHER team keeps the ice for a practice. If the OTHER team is unable to use the ice they may sell or trade this ice, within their home association only, to compensate for the rescheduled game. Please do not leave the ice sitting empty, as this is reported to the City and we may lose ice allocations next year. Your first responsibility is to play your GHA league games so reschedule your game as soon as possible.

All game cancellations and reschedules MUST be reported to the GHA Convenor 7 days prior to the date of the reschedule. Please complete the Game Reschedule Form.

When all teams have agreed to the new date/time and e-mail it to GHA@LeitrimHockey.ca with “LMHA Game Reschedule Request (Team Name)” in subject line (if you need assistance acquiring ice for the rescheduled game, advise the GHA Convenor and he will liaise with the LMHA Ice Scheduler to assist).  The GHA will cancel and rebook the referees. All Game Reschedules received by Sunday at noon will be posted each Monday night. This is your confirmation the reschedule was approved. Please be sure to check the website to ensure the information was captured correctly.  At this point, please notify the LMHA Ice Schedule of the game reschedule at:  Ice@LeitrimHockey.ca The GHA pays for the referees scheduled on GHA ice, provided the game reschedule request is reported 7 days prior to the date of reschedule.

All game reschedules must be done by January 31st of the hockey season. Any game reschedules done after January 31st, if approved by the GHA VP House and GHA President, will be at the full expense of the team making the request.


Game Cancellation due to Inclement Weather   

NOTE: GAMES TAKE PRIORITY OVER PRACTICES – Practices can be traded with other teams in your association.

A team requesting a cancellation of a game due to inclement weather is responsible for replacing ice for the rescheduled game and paying for the refs for the reschedule game. The coach of the non-requesting team may choose to use the original ice for a practice.
