South Huron is once again hosting U15LL, U18LL in addition to  U11 through U18 C/D divisions for 2nd Tier/2nd entry teams ONLY

The tournament is scheduled for November 18-20, 2022

OMHA has made changes to centre classifications which affect what teams we can welcome in our South Huron C & D Tier 2 Regional Silver Stick tournament.

The South Huron Regional Silver Stick was formerly classified as an AE tournament. We could accept AE3-5 teams (additional entry, or second team) from our region.

The chart below shows the changes between AE hockey and the new classifications:




BB– The former AE1/AE2 entry out of a AAA/AA/A base category Association.


C– The second entry team out of a B base category Association, or, the first entry team out of a C base category Association.


D– The second entry team out of a C base category Association, or, the first entry team out of a D base category Association.


NA– Formerly the second entry team out of a DD or D base category Association. These second entry teams are now entered as local or house league.

South Huron will continue with our tradition of taking second or additional entry teams for this season's tournament as follows:

Second rep teams (formerly AE) from B centres classified as 'C' teams.

Second rep teams (formerly AE) from C centres classified as 'D' teams.


Example: If your team is a C team, but are considered the first - or REP Team - we cannot accept you in our tournament this season.
