Ten associations from across the Ontario Hockey Federation have been selected as a 2019 OHF Championship Host.
The hosts are nominated by their Minor Member, before being approved by the OHF Minor Committee. The OHF Championships are rotated annually between the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario (ALLIANCE), Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL), Northern Ontario Hockey Association (NOHA), and Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA).
The OHF Championships are the pinnacle events for all minor hockey players from Atom through to Midget, serving as the only tournaments to crown the best team from each level across the OHF. The hosts will see near 100 players taking part in the three-day Championships in April to battle it out for the title.
“Congratulations to all of the selected OHF Championship hosts. Each year we receive many excellent bid applications that continually translate into successful and fun Championships from Atom all the way through to Midget,” said Tony Foresi, OHF Chair of the Board. “We look forward to a great partnership with each host community over the next season to provide a memorable experience for all teams.”
This year, the hosts are as follows:
Atom A Kapuskasing Minor Hockey Association (NOHA)
Atom AA Belle River District Minor Hockey Association (OMHA)
