OWHA Season Structure for U9 (Novice) and U11 (Atom)
Submitted By Kate Hogarth on Tuesday, February 25, 2020
The 2020/21 Season will see additions to the OWHA Player development model with further season structure changes.  

These changes focus on the development of the player by laying out how the phases of the season will be delivered.
1.       Preparation Phase/Evaluation Phase:  typically 4 weeks
2.       Development Phase:  time period after try-outs and before regular season
3.       Regular Season:  from 1st regular season game to start of play-offs
4.       Play-offs
5.       Off-season Phase:  time from end of play-offs to start of Preparation Phase

Charts have been created for quick reference:  U9 (Novice) and U11 (Atom)


Here are some common changes for both groups:

  1. For players wanting to try-out for representative teams – there will be no evaluations (try-outs) from March/April to August.  This also includes the first week of school.
  2. Prior to evaluations (try-outs) there will be 4 practices/skill sessions
  3. Following team selection, there will be a period of development prior to the beginning of the regular season (Rep & HL).
