Message from the Registrar re: 2019/20 Season Registration

I am excited to announce that PRMHA will be taking registration on-line for the 2019/20 minor hockey season! We are working hard to finalize our online platform, which will be hosted by Hockey Canada with a direct link to it located on our website. In past years, we have held Early Registration in-person sessions at the Complex around mid-June. Due to launching an on-line platform and moving away from a paper-based registration process, we will not be doing that this year.

Keep an eye out on email and our Facebook page for when on-line registration is open! The Hockey Canada platform is very easy to use and once our merchant account is established, you will be able to pay by credit card online, or complete your registration online and still drop off cash or cheque at TAWS within a 48 hour period. Some changes you can expect to see this season:

  • Player and Parent code of conduct forms will be printed off the website by you and your coach/division manager will collect them at your first ice time. They will remain in their possession throughout the season;
  • The $50 fundraising payment for the Christmas raffle will now be payable in full at time of registration, not post-dated as in past practice;
  • Each parent will be responsible for ensuring that the address and contact information for each player is up to date at time of registration.
  • Any financial aid applied for will need to be noted in the appropriate field online with a reference/confirmation number attached. A player will not be considered registered until any shortfall between the registration fee and anticipated financial aid is paid in full.

I expect to experience some hiccups during this transition, and thank-you for working patiently with me to sort them out! It’s a new venture for PRMHA too, but one that we feel will streamline the process, cut down on paperwork, and provide our families will greater flexibility in payment options. To recognize that it’ll be a learning curve for everyone, we are extending our Early Bird registration fees to August 1st instead of July 15th. Some situations in which you will NOT be able to register on-line and must contact me directly:

  • 4th Year / Overage Midgets – additional paperwork and registration is not guaranteed;
  • Transfers in from other minor hockey associations;
  • International Students;
  • Parent volunteers/coaches do not register online.

I am always available for any questions you may have, and look forward to working with all of our PRMHA families in trying to make this transition as smooth as possible. Thank-you!
