VIAHA Volunteer of the Year.

Posted by Oceanside MHA at Jun 18, 2017 3:33AM PDT

Recently our Referee In Chief, John Sloan, was honored by VIAHA as Volunteer of the Year.

Congratulations John!

Dr. Shelina Babul at the University of British Columbia, in partnership with BC Hockey, is evaluating the concussion educational training mandated by BC Hockey last year. BC Hockey announced in June, 2016, at their AGM held in Sun Peaks, BC, that all BC Hockey on-ice team officials are required to complete the Concussion Awareness Training Tool (CATT) prior to their participation in any practice or games starting the 2016–2017 hockey season.

We are requesting that any individuals who have completed this concussion training complete a short online questionnaire with a time commitment of approximately 5-10 minutes.

All participants who qualify and complete the questionnaire will be entered into a draw for an Apple Watch, as well as items from BC Hockey.

All responses will be anonymous. Your email address will be kept confidential and used only to enter you in the prize draw.

Please follow the link below to complete the questionnaire: Evaluation of BC Hockey Mandated Concussion Training.

If you have any questions about this study, or require further information, please contact the project coordinator Kate Turcotte at

Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Your feedback will allow us to improve concussion education and awareness in British Columbia.

Competitive Team Registration Deadline

Posted by Oceanside MHA at Jun 8, 2017 3:32PM PDT

Currently the number of players registered for each of our (4) competitive teams (Atom Development, Peewee, Bantam, and Midget Competitive Divisions) is either close to or below the minimum required to host a team.

As a result, OMHA is setting a deadline of June 25th for any player wanting the opportunity to try out and play on one of our competitive teams. In the event that we still do not have enough players registered by the June 25th deadline to host a team, we will do our best to provide an option/s for those players who were registered before the June 25th deadline. Please note that the option/s will not be provided to any player who decides to register after the June 25th deadline.

OMHA remains hopeful that we will receive a number of registrations over the next couple of weeks and are able to host teams in all (4) of the Competitive Divisions. However, we recognize that if we are not able to offer a program for those players registered that we will do our best to provide them with option/s to still take part in the Competitive Divisions. Having a registration deadline of June 25th will allow us time to arrange these option/s, if required.
