new LOR regulations for the 2017-18 season came some specific tryout process
changes for those players born in 2008, 2007, and 2006 who currently reside in

and categories where there are more than one team have also been impacted by
the new changes.

The below summarized information applies to players who are born in 2008, 2007, or 2006 who currently reside in Oakville and played for another LOR team in the 2016-2017 season. (does not apply to the player utilizing the grandfathering clause)

Minor Atom to Peewee aged players who played for the Oakville Rangers in the 2016-2017 season must register and attend spring tryouts. Those not offered a card will be given a release for the Division and Category with which they tried out (for example: A Player tries out for Atom AAA and is not offered a card for the AAA team. That Player will be given a release to tryout for other AAA teams (within the LOR). A release at AAA does not permit a player to tryout within the LOR at lower categories.
