GOJHL is fighting for Junior A status!
We are currently classified as a Junior B hockey league, which puts our players at a distinct disadvantage compared to Junior A teams. Despite having the second largest number of registered hockey participants in the province AND the country as well as having a level of play equal to, or better than that of other Junior A leagues, the GOJHL has been repeatedly denied reclassification. This forces our athletes to relocate up to 8 hours and spend immense amounts of money in order to increase their visibility to scouts by playing on a Junior A team. The GOJHL is urging the OHA to approve its reclassification bid to level the playing field for junior hockey players across the province no matter where they’re located and enhance the overall quality and competitiveness of Junior A hockey.
We’re calling on the OHA to “DO THE RIGHT THING!”
