Ice Allocation Principles

OCMHA over the years has developed the following general principles in the allocation of ice time:

Ice time purchased by the Association is shared equally among teams. However, teams may purchase and pay for additional ice time from the City whenever it becomes available and it is advertised on the City web site. Additional ice time is available on outdoor rinks.

Each team recieves a minimum of 1 hour per week at Brewer. The extra hours are allocated equally.

Total schedule transparency hard copy to coaches, to canteen and to Brewer bulletin board.

3. Subject to registration and team numbers, the available OCMHA ice is allocated as follows:

3. The above designated ice times are used to develop the Interlock Schedule for Home and Away (Visitor) games with other Minor Hockey teams in the District and Juvenile teams with other Districts involved in Juveniles.

4. The Interlock Schedule and the Practice Schedule is developed in cooperation between the Director of Interlock Relations, the Director of Scheduling and the Division Coordinators.

5. A master schedule for ice allocation at Brewer Arena should be available from the Director of Scheduling early November. If any team is not able to use the assigned ice time, it is important to notify the Director of Scheduling as soon as possible so that the ice can be made available to other teams.

6. Each team coach may use the practice time as he/she feels best either by practising as a team, practising with another OCMHA team or by arranging exhibition games.

7. All the available ice times may not be preferred by all participants but by sharing throughout the season, everyone is allocated an equal share. There is no other ice time available in the City of Ottawa.
