In the EODSA we use player ID cards. This information might be different if your team is from Quebec, or a different district. Please contact the OCSL office if that is the case.
What is a valid player ID Card?
A valid ID card will have the player’s picture, name, birth date, gender, OSA number, card issue date and card expiry date under the picture. The back of the card needs to be signed.
Cards expire 5 years after you have been issued it, on your birthday. Once the card has expired it is no longer valid.

The ID card is proof that you are the player that is listed on the game sheet. Being on the game sheet and having the card means that you are covered by OSA insurance.
