Although the OMHA has mandated that there will no longer be a Rep category at U9, for this coming season only, Haldimand is allowed offer “U9MD” (Minor Development).
MD is defined as a level of hockey that is between Local League and Representative.
For U9, without Rep hockey, MD becomes the highest category for that division. All U9 players are to register for their own Local League associations and practice throughout September on the U9LL ice times in their own centre.
Then, those who wish to try out for the MD team, should attend the Haldimand
U9MD Tryouts in late September. $100 tryout fee applies.
