Registration Policies

General  

  • Registration Deadline: 11:59pm on Saturday, August 31st, 2024
    • Registration must be completed by deadline so that ice times can be planned appropriately.
    • Late registration after the deadline for U5, U7, U9, and U11-U23 Recreation will be on a limited first-come, first-serve basis, and there will be an additional late fee of $50.
    • There Will Be No Late Registrations for Competitive Tryouts
  • Payment is due in full upon registration.
    • No Pay - No Play
    • If registration has not been paid in full before the first ice time, the player will not be permitted on the ice for insurance purposes.
  • Any player with outstanding Registration Fees or Missing 50/50 Ticket Fees from any prior season is considered a “Member Not in Good Standing”.
    • The HCR 3.1 System automatically blocks Registration for a "Member Not in Good Standing". The block is removed when payment is received in full.
  • Details about how much ice time per team is covered by SMHA Registration Fees will be communicated with Team Managers and Team Treasurers to pass along to families.
    • For U5 and U7, there are no additional fees.
    • For U9 and older, SMHA Families are also be responsible for "Team Fees" in addition to the Registration that is paid upfront.
      • Team Fees are set by a team's Coaches, Manager and Treasurer.
      • Team Fees vary greatly based on things like "extra" ice time beyond the ice time included in Registration, Tournaments, whether or not the team has non-parent coaches, etc. 
      • Team Fees are collected by the Team Treasurer during the season. More info will come from your Team Treasurer once teams are set.
      • Team Fees can be covered in a variety of ways including Sponsorship (i.e. Sponsor Name Bars on jerseys), Carried Forward 50/50 Credits, Fundraising (50/50 or other Team Fundraisers), or in cash payments by families.    

Payment

Payment can be made by Interac E-Transfer, by player 50/50 Credits, or by Credit Card. Please note that Credit Card transactions are subject to an additional processing fee. 

E-Transfer

  • EMT's are sent to Finance@FlyersHockey.ca. Auto-Deposit is enabled. Please include a decsription and your player's full name in the comment. (i.e. "Registration - John MacDonald")
      • 50/50 Credits

        • Carried-Forward 50/50 Credits from 2023-2024 were linked to players in HCR in the Spring.
        • If, during registration, if you realize you want to transfer credits to a sibling for that transaction: PLEASE STOP and read the "Families with Multiple Players" section below. 
        • The credits should show up when registering your player.
        • Frequently Asked Questions
          • How can I check how much credit we have?
            Log into HCR 3.0 (https://register.hockeycanada.ca/home ->Log In (top right corner).
            Click the grey silhouette (top right corner). My Account -> Purchases on the left side. 
            In the right column labelled Due, you will see a negative amount in green font. It will be the top line, posted to your account this Spring.
            That is your family's Carried Forward 50/50 Credit.
            The Parent view unfortunately doesn't indicate which player has the credit if you have more than one player in your family.

          • What if I have questions when I'm in the middle of online Registration, and it isn't showing up how I thought it would?
            Your best bet is to send an email to Tara Amirault (Finance@FlyersHockey.ca).

          • What if I don't have enough to cover the 2nd (3rd, etc) child's registration in full?
            That is completely fine. Once we reach back out to you to let you know the credit was moved as requested below, you will be able to finish the Registration process and use another method of payment (EMT or Credit Card) for the balance.

          • Questions about 50/50 Credits can be sent to Finance@FlyersHockey.ca

        • Families with Multiple Players:
            • There is a known issue in the Hockey Canada Registration portal related to the sharing of 50/50 Credits among siblings.
            • Before registration, feel free to fill in THIS GOOGLE FORM with instructions about a percentage of your total credits or a dollar amount to be moved between siblings. 
              • Tara Amirault (Finance@FlyersHockey.ca) will confirm by email that the credits have been manually moved to the appropriate sibling.
            • If, during registration, if you realize you need to transfer credits to a sibling PLEASE STOP and do not finish registration at that time. Continuing the check-out process when the credits haven't yet been moved creates some manual behind-the-scenes work to fix it...
              • Fill in THIS GOOGLE FORM and wait for Tara Amirault (Finance@FlyersHockey.ca) to confirm with you by email that the credits have been manually moved to the appropriate sibling. Please check your Spam Filter / Junk Inboxes.
              • When you receive confirmation that the 50/50 Credits are moved, please go back into HCR and proceed with registration. The credits can then be applied to each player properly.
            • This is the same process used since 2022.
