Forms & Other Downloads
In order for your child to participate in tryouts for another program, while they are of age to participate within the Amherstburg Minor Hockey Association, you will need to have completed one of the following permission forms depending on the level of the other program.

AAA Permission to Skate (PTS) Form


All players attending AAA tryouts must get a AAA Permission to Skate form signed by a representative from AMHA.  AMHA is only able to sign PTS forms for players who are registered with AMHA for the upcoming season.


In order to streamline this process, you must go to Hockey Canada registration at the following link:  register for Permission to Skate, and then take your proof of registration as indicated below:


The 2017-18 AAA PTS forms can be found on the AMHA website in the document library, please download the form and have it filled in before requesting it to be signed. Photo copying and down loading of the form is not available in the AMHA office.


This is the only date the AAA forms will be processed so make sure you get to the arena on this date. MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR PROOF OF REGISTRATION or the PTS form can’t be signed. 


If you have any questions about AAA permission to skate forms please contact Greg Crain- VP Travel  or Gregg Meloche - Travel Convenor


Please note these forms will NOT be signed or processed at the banquet

Players interested in attending Jr C Amherstburg Admiral’s camps can do so without a PTS.  Midget-aged players for the upcoming season wishing to attend JR B Camps must obtain a Junior PTS from AMHA.

Fair Play Code for Parents
  • I will not force my child to participate in hockey
  • I will always remember that my child plays hockey for his or her enjoyment, not for mine.
  • I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  • I will teach my child that doing one's best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of the game.
  • I will make my child feel like a winner every time by offering praise for competing fairly and trying hard.
  • I will never ridicule or yell at my child for making a mistake or losing a game.
  • I will remember that children learn best by example. I will applaud good plays and performance by both my child's team and their opponents.
  • I will never question the officials' judgement or honesty in public.
  • I will support all efforts to remove verbal and physical abuse from children's hockey games.
  • I will respect and show appreciation for the volunteers who dedicate their time to my child's development.
