Permission to Skate Forms

(OMHA PTS for AAA and Junior Teams)

BE SURE TO REGISTER with Brant Hockey as well to apply for a NRP.(AA).

Please note that Permission to Skate Form requests are not permitted until OMHA have released the forms. The date changes every year. Brant Hockey will notify parents when PTS forms are activated by OMHA and when form requests can start. 

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) requires that every player trying out for a AAA team obtain a Permission to Skate (PTS) form from their home centre prior to stepping on the ice. Please note that a permission to skate form is not a player release nor is it an OHF AAA Waiver form.

Brant Minor Hockey can only provide a PTS form for the Brantford 99ers AAA.  We cannot provide a PTS form for any other AAA Zone. If a player is cut from Brantford, they can request an OHF AAA Waiver form from Brantford 99ers AAA to allow them to tryout with an adjoining AAA zone. 

For Junior PTS, if a player played on a AAA team this past season, request Junior PTS from the AAA association. If a player played for their home centre (Brant), then a Junior PTS form must be filled out by their home centre (Brant). 

You must complete the online form request provided by Brant Minor Hockey in order to receive your paperwork found on the Brant Minor Hockey website. THIS WILL NOT BECOME LIVE UNTIL OMHA RELEASE THE NEXT SEASON FORMS!!!!!

Include the following information in your request. You will not get a response back from Brant Minor Hockey until you have included all the following in your request.

  1. Player name

  2. Player date of birth

Who is eligible for a Permission-to-Skate form?

Within which centre does the player register?

All players must register in their home centres.

Who can obtain a NRP Passport?

Only players that provide proof of registration (receipt for registration) will be granted an NRP Passport. 

How does a player determine which centre he is eligible to tryout for?

The player is eligible to tryout in any centre of a different base category, that is accepting NRPs

Can players from one “A” centre tryout in another “A” centre?

No, all players from an 'A' centre can only tryout for a  team rated higher than their own. The only except is at the U16 age and above, with the 'Authorization to Move' process.

Can a player obtain more than one passport?

No. A player may only receive a single passport.

If a player is selected for the team above his centre, does this mean he is permanently a member of the new centre?
No.  The NRP process is good for a single season only. 
All players interested in trying out for centres above their home category must go through the process every year.

Can a player attend a tryout for a AA  centre outside of their own without obtaining a NRP?

No.  The only way players can tryout in another centre is by obtaining an NRP Passport from their home centre.
