Dates and Schedule

  • Season Dates: The 2021-22 Winter season will begin September 29th, and run until April
  • Teams will play 25 games this season (more than in recent seasons, for all those teams who are itching to get back onto the ice after a missed season!)
    • 4 Exhibition Games
    • 17 Regular Season Games
    • 4 Playoff Games (minimum – with more playoff games possible for teams advancing)
  • Games will be played on Sunday – Thursday nights. New for this season, teams will play up to two games on Friday and/or Saturday. Games on Friday will not start after 10:30pm, and games on Saturday will start between 12:00pm and 9:30pm. This is allowing the league to expand to 25 games, but freeze costs based on a 23 game season.

In order to provide the safest environment as possible for all players in the OSAHL, all players will be required to be fully vaccinated to play in the league. Players will be required to provide proof of vaccination prior to the league’s first game. Final details on how this proof will be provided will be announced soon.
