Sorry for the inconveniences that many of you have been experiencing. I believe Hockey Canada has resolved the issue. Please click on the link below or the links from the website ONLY. There was an error in the links previously provided which led to various errors. Ignore previous email links.
Please note that registration for returning players will now end on June 12th, not 10th giving everyone roughly 10 days to register. When the count down reaches zero, your time is still up. . Please email Stephanie Naqvi at email@example.com if your registration woes persist. Good luck and again, we thank you for your patience.
In an effort to keep fee increases to a minimum, we have created an exciting association-wide fundraiser. Every registered player will be asked to sell ten 50/50 tickets. These tickets will be priced at $10 per ticket, giving us approximately $20,000 in prizes with the other half going back to the association.
Tickets will be distributed by your team manager at the beginning of the season, and the draw will be at our charity game in December. To keep things simple, and avoid having to ask managers to collect the money, we will be asking you to purchase these tickets at the time of your registration.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Sharron Tulk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need volunteers to step up and assume the role of divisional coordinator for each of the Initiation, Atom, Peewee, Bantam and Midget divisions. If you are interested in getting involved, contact Sharron Tulk directly.
