Head Contact Rule
Submitted By sposluns on Monday, October 17, 2011
From omha.net: The new Head Contact Rule was unanimously approved at Hockey Canada’s 2011 annual general meeting, held in May in Calgary, Alta. The new rule calls for zero tolerance on any head contact in minor and female hockey in all 13 Hockey Canada branches and will come into effect immediately for the 2011-2012 season.  

The OMHA and Hockey Canada are serious about working with administrators, coaches, trainers, officials, parents and players to create the fun, respectful environment we all expect in the game. The rule changes combined with education, awareness, strong player development and respect for the game will reduce injuries such as concussions and help to keep the game fun for all.

For specific rules and rulebook updates regarding head contact, please see the Memo Re Head Contact Penalties - August 2011

Hockey Canada has launched of a new website dedicated to the implementation of the new head contact rule for the 2011-12 season in minor hockey across the country. The site address is www.HockeyCanada.ca/HeadContactRule
