Permission to skate

Permission to Skate and Releases


No player is allowed to skate with another female hockey association until mid-April of the year they are trying out for, and only with permission from their current association. 


What is a Permission to Skate (PTS) and when do I need one?

  • Every player registered to an association cannot skate with another female organization without approval from their current association
  • A PTS is the form you are required to complete if you want to tryout for another female hockey association.

What is a release and when do I need one?

  • A Release removes you from the NCFHA. You are “assigned” to a new Association in the OWHA database.
  • No paper releases will be provided.When you sign with a new association an automatic release will be generated in the registration system. The Registrar will confirm the player does not have any outstanding obligations to their current team and will perform the electronic release.


Process to obtain a PTS

Follow one of the two instructions below: 

  1. Download, print and complete the OWHA Permission to Skate form for the 2021/22 season. Scan/email the form to the email as instructed below.
