approves transfers in the summer. You must still first register to be wait-listed with your home association, every season. Should Saanich end up finding space for you, a 100% fee refund will be provided to you by VMHA
Registration closes August 1, 2017. A 5% late fee will apply for those who register after August 1, 2017.

documents during the registration process, so please have these ready. Players new to us must also upload a birth certificate or passport photo. And, players transferring permanently from another association, due to a move, must have all the documentation required by VIAHA
ready as well: http://www.viaha.org/forms/2015-MHA%20Residency%20Checklist.pdf

UPLOADING DOCUMENTS: The site ONLY ACCEPTS IMAGE FILES. There is no need to scan your document. Just attach a clear photo of your document taken from your phone or digital device.
FEMALES and MALES – Please register SEPARATELY below
FEMALE PLAYERS – please be sure to select SKATER or GOALIE for Atom & Older
Females will be placed on female teams first. If there are not enough girls to form a female team in your age division, then you can be placed on an Integrated “C” team, or we can discuss other options with families not wanting the integrated option.
Females who wish to also play on an integrated team please indicate your interest below. If there is space on an integrated team, we will place you for an additional fee of $250.
MALE PLAYERS – please be sure to select SKATER or GOALIE for Atom & Older
MIDGET OVER-AGE PLAYERS
Players (1999-born) wanting to play as over-age players this coming season, please register above in the female or male section. As these are techincally wait lists, you will not be charged at this point. You will also need to complete the Over Age Exemption form (http://viaha.org/forms/2014%20Overage%20Exemption%20Form.pdf) and submit it to Chris Atchison (firstname.lastname@example.org) for signature and submission to VIAHA. VIAHA will likely review the forms sometime in mid-August. At that point, if your request is approved, and we have space, we will be happy to place you. You can pay your registration fee once a spot is confirmed for you.
All players-in-good-standing registered in Atom to Midget (except Midget Over-Age) are welcome to participate in the tryout process.
Players attending tryouts will be selected based on their commitment to play rep hockey combined with their ability, attitude and fitness. Participation in all games, practices, specialty clinics, and dry land is expected and any exceptions must be cleared with team staff. (*Additional association and team fees will apply to players selected to their respective rep team.)
