When do I need to register my child for the next hockey season to avoid a late payment fee?

You can register your child online by Sept 9, 2023 for the 2023/24 hockey season to avoid the late payment fee. Registering by that date helps us to plan the correct number of teams for each division.

U7 (IP) - $565
U8 (Minor Novice) - $660

Can I pay with cheques?

No- Registration fees are to be paid using E-TRANSFER

Can I pay with cash?

No - for security and tracking, we do not accept registration payment by cash. 

Can I pay in installments?

Please pay in full at time of registration if possible to help reduce administrative cost. We understand that registering multiple players can present a sudden financial burden so we do provide an installment payment plan to help. Please use this option if it helps more players to participate. For installment payment, 50% of the fees are due upon initial registration and 2 payments can be made after this. All payments by September 9, 2023. 

When will I be contacted as to what team my child is on?

Teams are determined by tryouts for Rep/AE and by evaluation for local league. Rep/AE tryouts will begin early September.  Local League evaluations will begin last week of September. Please check the website regularly come September to see when evaluations have been scheduled.

Oro Rep and AE teams begin games in late September/ early October. Local league teams, except U8 (Minor Novice), begin games in October. U8 (Minor Novice) teams begin games in December. Keep an eye on the for schedules and firm dates.

Can I specify a certain coach or team that I want my child to play for?

No. Our policy is to ensure that players are playing at the appropriate level and that our teams are balanced. Limiting players to selected coaches restricts this objective. We encourage all participants to benefit from the knowledge of all coaches and coaching styles. Please see the Policies, Procedures and Code of Conduct if you have concerns about any team officials.

Can I request that my child play with his friend for car-pooling purposes?
Yes. You may make that request and we'll do our best to honour it. Please note that the request will not always be honoured. Our policy is to ensure that players are playing at the appropriate level and that our teams are balanced. Grouping players sometimes restricts this objective. Please email any requests to [email protected]
