At the General Meeting that was held on Tuesday, August 26th, members voted to approve the application for continuance as well as the new bylaws. The amended bylaws and application for the continuance are posted to the website (under "documents/other"). The need to update the bylaws and apply for a continuance is due to the introduction of new legislation affecting federally incorporated non-profit organizations. Please note that the current bylaws remain in effect until the certificate of continuance is issued by Corporations Canada. Updates will continue to be posted on the website. Thank you to all those members who attended this meeting.

This year, as part of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), ALL U12 PETITE PLAYERS need to have their skills rated against the LTAD Skills Matrix. Even if you attend tryouts for our Provincial teams, you must attend these sessions as well.
Petite-aged players wishing to play more competitively this year should attend the U12 PP (Petite Provincial) tryout sessions. WORA plans to have two tiered U12 PP teams designated "Blue" and "Red", with "Blue" being the higher level team. Since the first set of PP evaluations were held in the spring, releases will be made after each PP tryout and players will receive communication to return to the next PP session or to attend the first PP Red team tryout. Those players released from the PP Red team will play on one of the two balanced U12 Regional (recreational) teams. If you missed Spring PP evaluations, please contact Colleen Moore for further information.
All U12 players must submit the U12 Petite Provincial Intent to Tryout form (under Documents section on the website) and email to our PP Competitive Coordinator, Colleen Moore. U12 players MUST register with the Eastern Region, but do not have to submit the Competitive Commitment Survey. The U12 Petites will be divided into two groups, each attending two evaluation sessions. If, by Monday, Sept. 1st, you have not yet received an email informing you which session to attend, please contact Colleen Moore at email@example.com.
