STRATHROY DISTRICT MINOR HOCKEY REGISTRATION 2023/24
U5 – U18
SDMHA’s goal is to have the bulk of our registrations done by June 30th, 2023 in order to determine the number of teams and coaches required for the upcoming season. If you have any questions, please contact your SDMHA Registrar or Executive for clarification.
PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION - WITH REGISTRATION, YOU HAVE AGREED TO HAVE READ THROUGH IT!
HCR Account Set-Up and Registration Links can be found at the bottom of this announcement. They are live links that can be opened by waving your mouse over the appropriate wording.
**Please note that registration is best done on a computer - the links do not always appear on a cell phone. Any difficulties with the HCR must be addressed with the HCR directly**
REGISTRATION & PLAYER ACCEPTANCE
1. New players will need to create an HCR account. After you have created an account, a verification code will be emailed to you. Please check your junk folder as it may land there. Enter the verification code and follow the prompts to register your player(s). Select the player you wish to register and complete the registration process by answering the questions and selecting the add on options you wish to choose. Once the player's registration process is complete, you will have the option to add a second or subsequent player to your cart. You should register all of your players in this way before entering the payment process.
* Please note you may receive an error message when registering for U5 that says your child is too young. You should be able to skip past that warning message and proceed to registration. If you are unable to proceed, please email [email protected]
All new players to minor hockey are required to upload their birth certificate and proof of residency (photo of a parent's driver's license or utility bill that matches the registration address) to their profile. The system will allow you to complete the registration process without this but you will not be approved by OMHA until it is there.
All new players are also required to have a course completed for "Respect In Sport". If you have had other children in minor hockey, you should only need to add your new player to your existing account. Instructions for both new families and returning families can be found HERE
* Please note that RIS charges a small fee for the course.
***PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING***
Players are not considered registered until the online registration and waiver form are completed, AND a 20% deposit is received.
**If the required division reaches its limit, the player will be placed on a waiting list pending SDMHA's review of the division and registration numbers. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis - returning SDMHA players are not guaranteed a spot if registration becomes full. Please be sure to register early!!
