Permission To Skate, Release, and Waiver Information

The below information applies to Players (and Goalies) trying out for an Oakville Rangers team. If you are an Oakville Resident looking for a Waiver or PTS to tryout for a team outside of Oakville please click here for information.

AAA Waiver Process: NEW FOR 2019-2020

The OMHA announced in March that they will be moving to a new electronic waiver system which will replace the existing paper AAA waiver and the need to collect various signatures in person.  The system will go live on Monday April 15, 2019 which is the first day that waiver requests will be able to be entered into the system.  As such, AAA Waivers will NOT be available prior to April 15th, 2019 in any OMHA centre.

The process to request a AAA Waiver is the same as last year.  Please send an email to Melissa Wolk at [email protected] and include the following:

Players Full Name
Date of Birth
Home Address
What team the player played for in 2018-2019
What team the player is planning to play for in the 2019-2020 season
If they are a Goalie or a Skater

Do I need a Permission To Skate? This is a very common question at Tryout time but one that, unfortunately, does not usually have a simple answer. On this page we list out the information you'll need as clearly and concisely as we can but it is almost impossible to cover every possible scenario. If after reading through this page you are still unsure whether or not you will need a Permission To Skate, a Release, or a Waiver before Trying out for an Oakville Rangers team please contact your Home Center to review your scenario.

When determining whether or not you will need any additional paperwork prior to attending a Tryout the first question you have to answer is Do I live within the Lake Ontario Region (LOR)?

Lake Ontario Region (LOR) What is the LOR Lake Ontario Region

LOR stands for Lake Ontario Region. The LOR encompasses the whole of the GTHL (Toronto, Markham, Mississauga, and Vaughan) and the OMHA Associations/Centres (Oakville, Brampton, Richmond Hill, Markham, Ajax and Pickering). It has been in existence since the 1997-1998 season, to address the unique geographical area in and around the Greater Toronto Area. If you live within the LOR you are governed by the LOR Regulations. More information about these rules and regulations can be found at

The below image maps out the most common Permission To Skate (PTS), Waiver, and Release scenarios. It does not, by any means, cover every possible situation, but it should answer the question for most of the people reading this page. If after reading this you are still unsure as to whether or not you need additional paperwork prior to trying out contact your Home Center for clarification.

If you reside within the Lake Ontario Region (LOR) you can only tryout for a team within the LOR. The only exception to this rule are Players trying out for a AAA Team with a AAA F1 Waiver. If you are trying out for a team (at any level) from Minor Atom to Peewee you are first required to attend the Tryout in your Home Center. Your Home Center is not required to provide you with a Release if they have offered you a spot on their team.

As per Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) Rules and Regulations the ORHC is not permitted to provide PTS Forms or Waivers for the 2019/20 season until April 15th, 2019
