The following information was received from the NOHA:
On Monday, November 18, 2019, Hockey Canada announced changes to the division names. See the press release available here: https://hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/news/2020-21-coach-changes-made-to-age-divisions.
In the last couple of days, there have been questions as to the impact on the divisions moving forward.
This change have zero impact on the operation of our programming – it is simply changing the names.
Where Minor divisions exist, they will operate under the same name structure.
