It is important to note that PMHA Local League teams play in the Tri County Hockey League. 

May-16-11Richmond Hill, ON: - The Ontario Hockey Federation`s [OHF] Minor Council met on Friday April 29th to discuss the minor programs and among the topics was body checking in recreational hockey.The OHF Minor Council endorsed the following motion:Effective the 2011 - 2012 season body checking will be removed from all age divisions of House League and House League Select hockey.The OMHA wishes to clarify that the OHF ruling does not affect Local League hockey within the OMHA. The ruling applies to House League and Rostered Select only and will not impact current regulations for Local League.Local League programs can continue as in the past, and the decision to include body checking in Local League programming remains that of the local membership of your association.The OMHA seeks to provide programming to achieve objectives consistent with Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development [LTPD] model, and provide players with opportunities within the recreational stream of hockey best suited to their development. With this in mind, the OMHA will endeavour, through consultation with all stakeholders, to provide opportunities to support the player at each stage in their development.
