Boundary Update
Hello PSTMA members, 


As you are aware, the 22-year-old boundary agreement has been terminated and this has left the executive with many decisions. 

Many of our players fall into the new right of choice area, and some are choosing to try out in St Thomas.  If you are U14 and above and plan to tryout in St Thomas, here is what you need to know before you step on the ice:

-Both restricted and Right of Choice players must register in Port Stanley before the tryout.

-For players choosing right of choice, this is required as OMHA will not recognize Right of Choice forms until mid next week.

-Both restricted and Right of Choice players will need NRP (non-resident player) passport to participate in tryouts.  Mark Vergeer will be at the arena Monday Night May 2 to fill out and sign this passport for any player who is in need of one.  

We are currently working on the approval of a new Shared Boundary agreement with St Thomas and OMHA.  We are hoping to share an update soon on this. 

We appreicate your patience and understanding as we work through the details.
