Underage Player Movement
Huntsville Minor Hockey Association has amended its Player Movement Policy for Underage players. This policy addresses movement of players from Tyke-Midget.

In light of the changes being implemented by OMHA, under the direction of Hockey Canada, there have been significant changes to the 8 and under programming and player eligibility.

One major change in these divisions is the age groupings for Novice and Tyke. Novice now consists of only 8 year olds and Tyke of 7 year olds. There are some exceptions (and parameters) where the viability of icing a team or division requires the addition of one or more underage players.

This may be of particular interest to players wishing to tryout for a Novice Rep team this year. Rep tryouts for Novice will be open only to 8 year olds. If there is a lack of 8 year old players who attend the Novice Rep tryouts, HMHA will open a second round of tryouts, inviting interested Tyke aged (7 year olds) players to tryout.
