Over the past few years, registering for minor hockey has changed with the introduction of the online "Parent Respect in Sport"
course, the need to have a birth certificate on file
and this year the Ontario Government introduced "Rowan's Law"
, which is a mandatory online concussion course for all players.
It is highly suggested to register using a computer or tablet so that you can access all the links needed to complete the registration process.
Skipping any steps will just delay your child from being registered and placed on a team. The OMHA will not approve players to a team roster unless the requirements have been met.
Parent Respect In Sport Course:
This course is mandatory
for parents of any new player
. If you have already taken the course for other children already playing and are now registering a new player, you must log onto the Parent Respect In Sport website and add the new player to your profile. You do not need to take the course again.
Any new player that has never played hockey before needs to provide a copy of their birth certificate which will be uploaded to that players registration profile on the Hockey Canada Website. A copy can be droped off at the hockey office, you you can email a copy to [email protected]
Any player born from 1999 - 2010 (9 years of age or older) that has never registered for hockey
before, will need to contact the hockey office so a profile can be created in order for the player to register. First time players younger than 9 years old, can log onto the OMHA website and create a new profile and continue with the registration process.
Links to all the websites are available under the "Registration/Parents"
tab of the WSMHA website. Additional detailed information can be found on the 3 web pages. Please read thru the information carefully to avoid any registration delays.
