Potential Policy Revision

A policy revision to the OHA Play Up policy was presented at the April 17th, 2017 meeting.  This revision changes the second to last sentence of the policy:

"Once a player has moved up a division, the player must remain at the upper age level for the remainder of that season. and may not apply for another play up until after the completion of two seasons at that level."

This request would provide more flexibility with the new age classification adopted by the SDAHA on the September 24th, 2016 meeting for the 2017 - 2018 season.

This policy revision was discussed at the monthly meeting held Monday, April 17th.  It was decided to post the revision for member comment until the May board meeting, currently scheduled on May 15th, 2017 at 6:30pm (location TBA).  All members are invited and encouraged to attend.  If you are unable to attend, please feel free to email your comments to
