Ontario Hockey Federation Regular Season and Playoff Phase Survey – Part 3

The Ontario Hockey Federation wants to understand your experiences with the new Playing Regulations  for the 2023-2024 season.  

The first Survey that was sent out in September sought feedback on the Preparation and Evaluation  Phases. The second survey explored your experience with the Development Phase.  

The Regular Season and Playoff Phase survey will be open until Sunday, May 12, 2024, and will take  approximately 5 minutes to complete. As a reminder, the 2023-2024 season was made up of 5 phases: 

- The Preparation phase is considered non-team development opportunities that take place once  the playoffs are complete and before the Player Evaluations commence.

- The Player Evaluation phase provides flexibility in the format that Associations’ tier their  Registered Participants and still allows and encourage Associations to tier players with similar  skill. Within tryouts, a player either makes the team or does not. 

- The Development Phase is a 27-day period that takes place after Labour Day where teams may  only play a minimum of four (4) exhibition games and/or one Tournament. On-ice practices are  permitted during this period.  

- The Regular Season phase was permitted to start as of October 2, 2023 and is recommended to  have a maximum of 46 games, including exhibition, league, playoff/tournament games. Within  this phase, it is recommended to have two seasonal breaks (not including Christmas/long  weekends) that include a minimum of five days without a scheduled game or mandatory  practice. 

- The Playoff Phase is either tournament-style or elimination rounds with a continued effort to  reinforce skill-development elements in practices. 

Your feedback will be used in future decisions that support player development.  

Your participation is completely voluntary. You do not have to answer any questions you do not want to  and may stop the questionnaire at any time. You may also withdraw from the project at any time  without penalty. Your decision to withdraw will not impact your involvement with your Association,  Membership, or the Ontario Hockey Federation.  

All survey data will be anonymous. Your name will not be recorded anywhere e. For reporting purposes,  your responses will be grouped together with other participants. All responses you provide will remain  completely confidential.
