Registration

2019-2020 Registration is now open!

PRIOR TO REGISTERING PLEASE READ BELOW:

1. You will be required to enter each player’s individual HCR (Hockey Canada Registry).  You should have received an email with this number within the past few weeks. If you haven’t received it, you can also go to Hockey Canada and log into your account to verify.  PLEASE DO NOT CREATE A NEW HOCKEY CANADA ACCOUNT.  If you have played organized hockey you already have a number. The HCR # is usually 13 digits, beginning with either 1400xxx or 1500xxx (there are a few exceptions). If you can’t find it on Hockey Canada, please email our registrar at registrar@victoriaminorhockey.ca.

2. The set-up process for this season will take a little longer, particularly if this is your first time registering through TeamSnap. Future years will be much faster. If your team was using TeamSnap this past season, you will be able to log in using your current information.

3. For new to hockey registrants please contact registrar@victoriaminorhockey.ca. There will a separate New Player Registration Form that will include proof of date of birth etc.

NOTE: DEADLINE TO REGISTER FOR REP (COMPETITIVE) TRYOUTS: JUNE 30, 2019
All players-in-good-standing registered in Peewee, Bantam or Midget are welcome to participate in the tryout process, for an additional non-refundable cost of $125. Additional association and team fees will apply to players selected to their respective rep team. Players should participate in tryouts with the intention of being selected to the most competitive team.

Registration closes June 30th, 2019. A 5% late fee will apply for those who register after July 1, 2019.

RETURNING AND NEW players who do NOT reside within either the VMHA or SMHA draw zone: if you have been wait listed with your home association, and think you may want to play at VMHA, please send our registrar a note (registrar@victoriaminorhockey.ca) and we will keep you on a VMHA wait list. If your home association has not found space for you by mid-August, please contact our registrar. You can register with us at that time and we can very likely place you.

IMPORTANT: You must upload proof of address documents during the registration process, so please have these ready. Players new to us must also upload copies of either a birth certificate or passport. And, players transferring permanently from another association on the Island, due to a move, must have all the documentation required by VIAHA ready as well. Details here.
