Out of Town Players

Players that do not call Guelph their Home Centre will need to follow these guidelines carefully to ensure their eligibility for GMHA’s Tryout Selection Process. You are considered an “Out of Town” player if your residency does not indicate Guelph as your home city.
There are some exceptions. Please contact Bryan Smith at [email protected] with questions.

Examples of Out of Town Players – Centre Wellington, Woolwich, Hespeler, etc.

Zone Players - The Guelph AAA Zone includes Woolwich, Centre Wellington and Arthur.  Players must present a Permission to Skate form signed by the proper authority within their Home Centre.  No player will be allowed to skate or try out without this consent form.

You will need to obtain this form from your Home Centre and have them email a copy to you and a copy to Bryan Smith at [email protected].

NRPs (Non-Resident Players) - At the U12 age group and above, Guelph can accept up to 3 Non-Resident Players to each AA team. NRP Players must be pre-registered with their Home Centre for the upcoming season and present an NRP Passport in advance of attending tryouts.

You will need to obtain this form from your Home Centre and have them email a copy to you and a copy to Bryan Smith at [email protected].

OMHA Permission to Skate Players – Players in the U14 – U16 age groups from a Home Centre within OMHA are eligible to attend GMHA tryouts with an OMHA Permission to Skate form. You will need to obtain this form from your Home Centre and have them email a copy to you and a copy to Bryan Smith at [email protected].

F1 Waiver Players – This applies to players from ALL other Centres in age groups U10 – U13, but only to players from Non-OMHA Centres for age groups U14 – U16.

If you are an F1 Waiver player looking to try out in Guelph, you will need to provide all necessary waivers to Bryan Smith at [email protected] in order to be eligible to attend Guelph tryouts. Contact your Home Centre for the process to obtain the appropriate documents.
