Players who are not from the host AAA Zone centre are not permitted to try-out for any representative team in a classification lower than AAA, except as indicated in Policy 18.0 ALLIANCOMHA Made in Ontario Agreement.

.2  Try-out progression must be in accordance with OHF Regulation G Paragraph 2B. Tryouts at the AAA level must be completed within seven (7) days following the OHF Championships with successive tryouts at the AA and A levels to follow. The timeframe commences on the first Monday following the completion of the OHF Minor Hockey Championships.  The OHF Championships are conducted the weekend of the second Saturday in April each year. The above applies to all levels of AAA hockey with the exception for U18. Tryouts at Seeded (AA and A) cannot start until the seven (7) days of AAA try-outs have been completed.  Minor Development tryouts can start at the completion of Seeded tryouts.  In shared jurisdictions where there is a separate Seeded (AA and A) entity (i.e. London), AA tryouts must be completed in a seven (7) day period before A tryouts can begin.
