U12 AAA - 2 Coach Announcement
The Oakville Rangers Hockey Club (ORHC) is Pleased to Announce a 2nd U12 AAA Team and Head Coach for the 2022-2023 Season!  

After extensive evaluation and due diligence, the ORHC submitted a request to have a 2nd U12 AAA team for the 2022-2023 season.  The application for another AAA team and approval by the OHF, OMHA and SCTA League is reflective of both the player and coaching depth at the 2011 birthyear age group.  

In addition to having a top-ranked U11 AAA team in 2021-22, the U11 AA Red team went 42-1 during the 2021-22 season, won the Octoberfest Tournament, Tri-County Championships, and then went on to win the OMHA Gold Medal.

The approval is for the 2022-2023 season and will be reviewed on season-by-season basis moving forward. The existing U112 AAA team, coached by Patrick O'Sullivan, will be referred to as AAA-1 and this additional team will be referred to as AAA-2.

During the September tryouts players will be first selected for the AAA-1 team followed by the AAA-2 team.

With this announcement we are excited to announce PJ Yedon as Head Coach for the AAA-2 team.
