2. Any player who has been registered with another association, must contact the Registrar to obtain a Transfer Form.

3.  If you have any other registration questions, please contact the Registrar

4. If you have payment questions, please contact the Treasurer

5. YOU MUST COMPLETE RESPECT IN SPORT FOR PARENTS PRIOR TO YOUR CHILD BEING ALLOWED TO STEP ON THE ICE.  See below for further information and for links to the course.


In an ongoing effort to foster as a safe and enjoyable environment for all our players, Hockey Canada and the OMHA has mandated that one parent from each family will complete the RESPECT IN SPORT-PARENTS online course as a condition of the child's registration and participation in hockey.  This course takes approximately one hour to complete and is of no cost to the parent.  It only is has to be completed once as it is a non-recurring requirement. Click here for Respect in Sport for Hockey Canada Parents.

Hockey Canada Registry, "HCR" (where you actually register for hockey) has changed.  Hockey Canada has migrated to HCR 3.0 with a brand new, majorly overhauled registration process.  It has simplified most (but not all) processes for registration you may have experienced in the past.  The interface should now be an easier experience for registering your participants. 

Use this document to help you navigate through the process:
