Olds Minor Hockey Registration

It's A Great Day For Hockey

TeamSnap Registration Pilot Program

In 2018, Olds Minor Hockey will be participating in a Pilot Registration Program with Hockey Canada utilizing TeamSnap's Registration features. The further integration with the TeamSnap Platform that OMHA currently utilizes will assist our team of Volunteers with a workflow within a single platform for Registration.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate through the first few weeks of this integration.

You will need to have an existing TeamSnap account, or create one in the registration process.

If you have issues with the registration process you can find some information here.

If you still can't find the solution to your problem, please email omharegistrar@gmail.com for assistance.

Registration

Are you having trouble registering your child for hockey?

There are two possible reasons:

First: If this is the first time registering a child for hockey, a family will have to complete the Respect in Sport program with Hockey Alberta.  Starting in the 2018 Season, RIS will need to be renewed every 3 years.

For information visit http://www.hockeyalberta.ca/members/respect-sport/ 

Although it's not been required in the past for Pre-Hockey because they don't play actual games, Hockey Alberta has made it a mandatory requirement for all new families to hockey, no matter the level of entry to the sport. If it's a package offered on the HCR website, RIS rules apply. It's then associated with that family's HCR account for all years going forward and will need to be renewed every 3 years.

Second: If a family already has children playing hockey, they have to log in to their e-Hockey Canada account, create the child's profile to associate the child to their account, and then they will be able to proceed with registering him/her through our online registration link. To do this, visit https://ehockey.hockeycanada.ca

ONE LAST IMPORTANT NOTE:

Whether taking the RIS or creating a Profile on the e-hockey Canada website, parents should CONSISTENTLY use the child's name as on their birth certificate. 

Using abbreviated versions of your child's name or "nicknames" can create duplicate profiles, and accounts will not be linked. If parents use the name on the birth certificate, it eliminates possible duplications.

 

One of the two solutions above should work, but if it doesn't please contact omharegistrar@gmail.com.

 

Participation Fee:

OMHA has an interest in supporting families who wish to offset the cost of playing hockey by working hours in our Concession.

For the 2018 - 2019 season, families will be required to work 20 hours of time in the Concession.

If a family has not worked 10 hours prior to Dec. 15, 2018, $300 will be charged to the form of payment selected during registration. If partial hours have been completed, the hours will be charged out at $30 per hour.  Families will need to work an additional 10 hours prior to March 15, 2019 to prevent having another payment of $300 charged.

There is also an "Opt Out" option where families may pay $450 immediately on registration and not be required to work any Concession hours.

Please note that once you have chosen an option for the participation fee, it will not be changed so be sure of your decision.  (example 1:  If you opt out and then decide at a later date you would rather have paid someone to do your hours, you will NOT be refunded the opt out fee)

Jersey Bond Cheques:

$150 Jersey Bond Cheque will be required for each Player. Cheques are to be postdated to March 15, 2019 and will be collected by team managers at time of jersey distribution. Cheques will be destroyed upon receipt of both Home and Away jerseys at the end of the season. Jerseys are to be returned washed and cleaned, ready for the following year.
