It is imperative that people get their registration forms filled out and returned as quickly as possible. We open registration to new members June 1.
Payments will not be processed until July 1st, but we will be FULL in some divisions next year and capping registration.
If a senior division player is interested in trying out for the Central Zone team, they must register with us first otherwise we can not hold them a spot.
We have reinstated the Volunteer Bond Requirement. This is included in the cost of registration and will be refunded back once a family has completed their Volunteer position and had that verified by the team Volunteer Coordinator. This year there will be a maximum fee of $200.00 per family, but families are expected to help on all of their child’s teams.
Goalie fees for U11 and up will be refunded 2023-2024 registration fees after their teams has completed their playoffs.

Hockey University (Officiating 1/2)
The online course (modules) for NEW officials is NOW available for registration on the new Hockey Canada Registry Website.
All NEW officials will be required to complete this course before registering for a new officials’ certification clinic.
Registration for Hockey University can be found at https://register.hockeycanada.ca/clinic-details/1ebeb19a-9421-6526-bb16-02ed1a383242
Please Note: Every returning official will be required to participate in one of these online clinics if they wish to officiate this season. As always, if you were registered as an official last season, you are eligible to officiate until December 31st 2022 without attending a clinic. However if you wish to continue reffing into 2023, you will need to attend an online clinic, and pass your officials exam.
