Permission to Skate Forms
In the event that a Barrie Sharks player wishes to attend rep tryouts or practice with another association, a 'Permission to Skate' is required.
'Permission to Skate' forms are time-limited and are valid for the specified period recorded on the form. A separate form is required for each association the player wishes to try out for. All requests for "Permission to Skate"
As per OWHA rules, No 'Permission to Skate' forms may be used for the period between January 1st and two days after all the Provincial Championships for any teams during the current season".
To obtan a 'Permission to Skate' form you MUST go to BWHA's office (please check the home page of this website for hours open as they can change week by week)
As such any player that played for another Association and wishes to tryout for a Barrie Sharks team, MUST have a 'Permission to Skate' Form from their previous Association. Contact the executive of your previous association to determine their protocol.
It is OWHA policy that female players remain automatically tied to their OWHA association, until a formal release from that organization has been received. This is the case for both house league and rep players, even if your registration has lapsed.
In the event that any Barrie Sharks Player plans to move to a new association within the OWHA (e.g. because of a family move, selection to a rep team in another organization, etc.), a "Player Release" form is required from the Barrie Sharks prior to registering with the new organization. "Player Releases" MUST be approved by the Board of Executive.
All requests for "Release" forms MUST be sent to the BWHA office or email firstname.lastname@example.org (Please note this could take up to 30 days), Giving the following information:
a) Subject Line - Release Form Request
b) Girl's full name
c) Contact information for mailing

It is your responsibility to request a "Permission to Skate" or a "Release" on a timely basis. Please remember that we are a volunteer organization.
