To All CDMHA Members,  
On Dec. 1st, Hagersville Minor Hockey, prior to having their membership vote, decided to remove themselves from the proposed partnership amongst the four Haldimand centres. Moving forward, Caledonia, Cayuga and Dunnville would like to proceed with the Haldimand Rep Amalgamation/Partnership for the 2022/23 season. 

Voting on the proposed Rep Amalgamation/Partnership, amongst the Caledonia, Cayuga, and Dunnville minor hockey associations is scheduled to take place at our arena on
Saturday, December 11th from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Remax room.
Sunday, December 12th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm in the Remax room.
Monday, December 13th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Remax room.
Wednesday, December 15th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in the Remax room.
Thursday, December 16th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in the Remax room.

Please plan on attending and casting your ballot to have your say in the future of rep hockey here in Haldimand. Voting will take place according to the rules set by our by-laws/constitution. There will be one vote per parent.   Some key points to consider:
The new association will only affect the Representative teams in each association.  
The Local League teams will operate as they have in the past.
The new association will operate as an 'A' centre (pending OMHA approval) allowing players to remain in Haldimand County and still play at a high, competitive level rather than leaving for larger centres. Even though the OMHA is eliminating the AE level after this season, they have confirmed there will be an opportunity for additional Rep teams at a classification lower than A (for example: B BB, C, CC, D, DD, etc.)   
What’s next after the vote?
If the outcome is in favour, the proposal is submitted to the OMHA for approval.
If approved, early in 2022, the executive of the new association will be elected from each of the 3 local centres. (5 from each association) Executive meetings of the new association will take place soon after to fill roles and to begin planning for the upcoming season. The coach selection process will follow, looking toward team tryouts in the Spring of 2022.  

Thank you for your participation in this process.
