I wanted to design a very high-tech user friendly, interactive website that will attract all minor hockey players, parents, officials, coaches, referees and corporate people. The OMHA is a very high profile organization in North America. This is great for me personally, my company and most importantly to other young entrepreneurs."

About OMHA - The Ontario Minor Hockey Association, now the “Largest Minor Hockey Organization in the World” is the result of many years of hard work by men and women sincerely interested in the welfare of the youth of Ontario, and in the game of Hockey, Canada’s National Winter Sport. The OMHA, as it exists today, is the result of the amalgamation of two such groups of sports enthusiasts. While the Ontario Juvenile Hockey Association formed in 1935, was struggling through its first years of existence, another similar organization, known as the Ontario Midget and Bantam Hockey Association was operating for the benefit of youth in the province. Amalgamation of the two bodies resulted in the formation of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association in 1940.
