Information For New Referees
2018 / 2019 will be a transition year for the OMHA and its on ice officials.  Phase 1 of the Modified Ice Mandate will be implemented at the Tyke level, while 2019/2020 will have it taken to the Novice division.

For the coming year we have not been informed whether or not Tyke games will require officials or not.
