D-Division Rules

Note: D-Division follows C-Division rules and guidelines with the following addenda:

D-Division recognizes D-Division veterans first for veteran preference in rostering.  C-Division and Core Skills Clinic veterans are given preference over non-OBHL vets.  The D-Division board may recommend players register at a higher or lower division, based on skill and competitiveness.

Mentor players in D-Division are defined as players with a rating of 6 or higher (OBHL uses the same rating scale as C-Division).  Mentor players are expected to serve as leaders and play facilitators.  They are limited to one goal per game.
