Registration

2022-23 Registration Opens April 1, 2022

PRIOR TO REGISTERING PLEASE READ ALL 7 BELOW, as well as the registration polices:

1. For new to hockey registrants please follow these instructions

2. You will be required to enter each player’s individual HCR (Hockey Canada Registry). You can find it by logging into your Hockey Canada 3.0 account. If you do not have an HCR number, please go back to #1.

If you have played organized hockey you already have a number. The HCR # is usually 13 digits, beginning with either 1400xxx or 1500xxx and 2021xxx (there are a few exceptions). If you can’t find it on Hockey Canada, please email our registrar at registrar@victoriaminorhockey.ca.

If you have not created an account in the New Hockey Canada 3.0 Platform, please do so following these instructions. Once you have created your account, search for your Hockey Canada Profile and Link it to your new Hockey Canada 3.0 account. Do the same for each of your players.  Once that is finalized, you will be able to view your individual HCR numbers. If you have played organized hockey you have already been assigned a number, you will not need to create a new number/profile after creating your new Hockey Canada 3.0 account. You will only need to LINK yourself and your players to your new account. You will find the User Guide Here

Once the account has been created and linked on Hockey Canada 3.0, you can proceed to register for VMHA using the button provided on this page below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU DO NOT REGISTER TO PLAY THROUGH THE HOCKEY CANADA REGISTRY. YOU WILL NEED TO RETURN TO THE VMHA WEBSITE AND USE THE LINKS ON OUR REGISTRATION PAGE.

3. TRANSFERING FROM ANOTHER ASSOCIATION? If you have played hockey elsewhere in Canada, have moved to Victoria and are looking to register, you will need to complete the transfer form and process before registering. The transfer document for players coming to our association is found here. You will need to send this completed form, along with the required documents to registrar@victoriaminorhockey.ca in order to begin the transfer process.

RETURNING AND NEW players who do NOT reside within the VMHA draw zone (see draw zone details below): 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.
