Minor Bantam (2006) MD Programming Announced
Submitted By Sandra Perfetti on Sunday, May 12, 2019
At the end of April,  we asked for your feedback regarding the implementation of a MD Minor Bantam Program (rep hockey, without bodychecking). 

We are pleased to announce that WMHA will field a Minor Bantam MD team in the 2019-2020 season. This team will be in addition to the Bantam AE team. It is anticipated the level of play within the MD league will be very similar to the current AE program. Over the coming months WMHA will be working with various stakeholders to implement this program.  

There will be a 1 hour tryout for Minor Bantam (2006) MD

Wednesday May 15th
Canlan Ice Sports - Oshawa
Pad 2
4:30pm - 5:20pm

Players must be registered with WMHA and have purchased a tryout passport.

Passports will be available for purchase at the tryout desk.

MD FACTS 


2016: Alliance Hockey and the GTHL voted to gradually eliminate body checking from competitive hockey, A and below. 

2017: YSMHL introduced MD Programming for Minor Bantam, Bantam, Minor Midget and Midget.

The YSMHL 2018-2019 Minor Bantam division had 6 teams: Markham Waxers (2), Newmarket Redman, Barrie Colts, Aurora Tigers, Richmond Hill Stars.     

This season the following neighbouring Associations intend to offer MD programming at various divisions: Peterborough Petes, Pickering Panthers, NorthDurham, and Whitchurch Stouffville MHA.

This is an initiative that our Rep Committee and members of the Association fully support. But like many new things, there may be some challenges along the way. Please know we are committed to ensuring this program is a success and supporting all those involved. Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback and comments.
