Pre-Tryout/Evaluation Preparation Skates
In advance of the Fall Tryouts, the ORHC is offering a series of Prep Skates. These optional skates will give players an opportunity to hit the ice and have some fun while they stretch their legs and shake off some of that summer rust before diving into their Tryout or Evaluation! Participation is optional and there will be NO EVALUATIONS conducted during these sessions. Each session is 1-hour long, at a cost of $25, and will be run by professional instructors. For more information and to register please click here.

How To Register For Tryouts
U8/U9 Minor Development (MD) Evaluation Skates
For the 2022/23 season the Oakville Rangers will be offering 2 U8 MD Teams and 3 U9 MD Teams. U8/U9 does not hold "Tryouts" in the traditional sense. Instead, a series of Evaluation Skates are conducted. No cuts are made during these Evaluations and the teams are selected once all of the skates are completed. If you would like to attend the Evaluations to be considered for one of the U8 or U9 Minor Development (MD) Teams you must first be registered. THIS IS SEPERATE FROM YOUR REGISTRATION FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON. The registration fee is $50 and must be paid in advance of the first Evaluation Skate.


U13 & Younger Tryouts, U18 AAA Tryouts
Registration is completed online at If you are a returning user enter your username and password to login. If you have not attended a Tryout in Oakville previously you will first need to create an account. Once logged in, on the left-hand side, click on Apply for 2022/23 Tryouts and follow the steps to fill out the form. The Tryout Registration fee is $75.00/division. Note: your Tryout Registration is not complete until you have submitted payment. In this portal you will also be able to monitor the status of your Tryout, review the Tryout schedule, make changes to your registration, and more.


Split Sessions Tryouts
Each of the Tryouts may include one or more "Split Sessions". A Split Session is when a single Tryout Session is split into two individual skates. For example, there could be a Split Session on the Monday at 7:00pm and 8:00pm. This is a single Tryout day, but half of the participants would go to the 7pm skate and the other half to the 8pm skate - you will only attend ONE of the skates. In the event of a Split Session you will receive an email from the coach either the evening prior or the morning of the Split Session to inform you which of the two skates you are to attend.

Request a Withdraw/Refund
If you need to make any changes to your application (for example, if you registered for the AA Tryouts, changed you mind, and want to change it to A) or if you would like to withdraw from the Tryouts and request a refund log into the Tryout Portal and click on Tryouts I Registered For. To the right of each of your Applications is a black Edit button and Refund button. These options will be available until the Tryout Registration for that team closes, 24 hours prior to the first session. NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROVIDED AFTER THE TRYOUT HAS BEGUN!.

Tryouts for Red & Blue Teams
Most of the ORHC AA and A programs consist of two teams - a Red Team and a Blue Team. If you are registering for AA or A you will first be trying out for the Red team. If you are cut from that Tryout you will then be automatically enrolled for the Blue Tryout at no additional cost. New this season, we have also added a second AAA team at U12. These teams operate a little differently than our traditional Red and Blue and are being classified as Team One and Team Two to maintain that distinction, but the Tryout Process is the same. When you register for the U12 AAA Tryouts you will first attend the Team One Tryout followed by the Team Two Tryout at no additional cost.

Permission To Skate (PTS) and Waiver Information
OHF and OMHA Regulations require that players in U13 and younger Tryout in their home center before attending a Tryout in other centers. If you are not an Oakville Resident you will require a release from your Home Center before attending our Tryouts. If you do require any additional paperwork to attend Tryouts, please note it is your responsibility to be aware of the requirement and to provide the required paperwork at the sign-in desk at the first Tryout. If you make the team but failed to provide the correct forms it could interfere with your eligibility to register for the team. For more information on PTS and Waivers please visit

If you are an Oakville Resident and you are looking for a release to Tryout in another center (such as the GTHL) you will be required to attend the Oakville Rangers Tryout first. If you do not attend the ORHC Tryouts or you are offered a spot on the Oakville Rangers team you will not be eligible for a release in that division. If you are cut from the Tryout you will then have the option to request your release paperwork in the Tryout Portal on the Tryouts I Registered For menu. For more information, please visit

The ORHC strongly believes in keeping Oakville kids playing hockey in Oakville. In support of this belief, the ORHC maintains a policy that Imports and Non-Residents will not be accepted on Rep Teams in AA or lower. While the rare exception to this policy has been made in the past for extenuating circumstances, those exceptions are few and far between. To help enforce this policy, if you are not a resident of Oakville and you are applying for a AA or lower Tryout, the Tryout Portal will not allow you to pay and complete your application until the coach has approved it. If you feel you have an extenuating circumstance that would warrant an approval, please reach out to the Coach to discuss. The coaches and their contact information is listed at
