The Health and Safety director is a new position brought in by OMHA to help achieve the highest level of safety for our children while playing a sport they love. The safety page will be a link for health and safety resources and forms.
OMHA is also excited to be undertaking some new safety initiatives this upcoming season. Once those initiatives are approved and ready to begin they will be added to this page. Stay tuned!
