The Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) is a minor ice hockey governing body in Ontario. The OMHA is sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada. The OMHA was founded on November 30, 1940, after a merger of the Ontario Juvenile Hockey Association and the Ontario Midget and Bantam Hockey Association, arranged by Jack Roxburgh.[1] The new league began its first season with eight teams,[2] and signed an affiliation agreement with the Ontario Hockey Association.[3]

Structure

There are two "AAA" leagues, the Eastern AAA Hockey League and the South-Central Triple A Hockey League as well as four "AA" leagues in the York-Simcoe AA League, Tri-County AA League, Lakeshore League and the Bluewater League. The OMHA also has six "A" leagues in the Bluewater League, Niagara District League, Tri-County A League, York-Simcoe A League and the Lakeshore League.[]
