Registration Opens August 1, 2021

Welcome Back!!!!

Fun Hockey for all ages!

Welcome to Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association.  We are very happy to be welcoming everyone back to hockey in Mississauga.  After the long pause hockey is coming back this fall.  The season is scheduled to get underway starting late September and Early October. 

Registration for this season opens August 1, 2021.  The registration link at the bottom of this page will become active on that date.

 

Hockey Canada has released a new and improved version of the Hockey Canada registration system.  Each registrant is required to create a new Hockey Canada profile before being able to register.  Please click on the image to the right for the step by step instructions to help guide you through the registration process. 

 

Please review this registration page for details about registration, including season start dates, costs and the age groups.  To register on-line for the Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association please follow the link at the bottom of this registration page.  

Registration is open and our goal is a return to a hockey program that reassembles a pre-covid19 structure.  Prices have been established and the season structure is being finalized but the on ice game structure is expected to be similar what we enjoyed before the pandemic.  I hope you are as excited for the return of hockey as we are.  The House League and Ice Puppy programs are targeting a start, with the first evaluation weekend October 2/3, followed by October 16/17.  There may be some overflow evaluations added on October 9.  We are hoping to have a schedule released by September 28 , 2021.  You should expect an email before the evaluations to indicate which of the first evaluations for the age group you are asked to attend.  Rep “A” Hockey tryouts will be at the end of September.  We want the kids on the ice, skating and having fun as soon as we can.   We have done our best to keep registration costs reasonable as we come out of these unprecedented times. 

Below is the specific Meadowvale Minor Hockey program information, which is subject to change.

Registration for the 2021-2022 season will again utilize the Hockey Canada Registration (HCR) system. This system is used by all leagues across Canada and is governed, maintained, and developed by Hockey Canada.  All members of the MHL, GTHL, OMHA, and Alliance will be using this system again this season. The HCR offers a very secure system which will ensure privacy of information for all members.

Returning players will need to enter their email address and passwords. If you’ve forgotten your password there’s a convenient tab to request it from Hockey Canada.  The MHL does have access to passwords.  Please record your password and keep it safe, you will need this to access your details later to make any changes/updates, to download your Fitness Tax Credit receipt, and to register for next season.

New players: Who are registering with the Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association for the first time will go through the same procedure as returning players.

 

Non-Residential Fee (City of Mississauga Fee) 

As per the City of Mississauga, an additional $65.00 fee per player will be applied to registrants from outside of Mississauga. This is a City of Mississauga fee and not an Mississauga Hockey League or Meadowvale Minor Hockey fee. Residents from outside of Mississauga must indicate this when registering. 

If you have any questions please contact, registrar@meadowvalehockey.com.

 

Additional Costs – Team Budgets

If you’re new to sports, in this case hockey, you may not be aware that there are additional costs which are not covered by an association’s annual Registration Fees. This is section is meant to provide some further guidance.

House League, Rep and Gold across all age groups run a budget for the expenses which are deemed important by the Head Coach and Team Manager. There is not a fixed amount, as costs fluctuate vary based on several variables. The budget will be divided equally by the number of players on a team. Each family will share equally in these team expenses, which could include:

– additional ice time (on top of the any weekly practice provided by Meadowvale Minor Hockey)

– additional training/specialty programs

– goalie training

– coaching and volunteer certification cost

Once a Head Coach and Team Manager determine the team expenses and create a budget, all parents will be informed of the budget at the beginning of the year to inform participants where the funds will be allocated. Head Coaches do their best to keep costs reasonable. The Team Manager will provide a budget update mid-year and at the end of the hockey season.

Fundraising efforts and sponsorships may be path used by the team officials to offset team expenses. Rep A, GOLD and RED teams will typically have higher budgets than other levels (WHITE, BLUE and GREEN). Rep A and GOLD coaches will provide detailed budgets prior to players committing to a rep team.

 

The Process

All registrations will take place on-line. Payments can be made by credit card or personal cheque.   Registrants who pay with credit card may opt to pay the entire registration fee up front or select a payment plan that requires a 10% first time payment, with up to a maximum of five installments, with the final one in December.  The registration system will show the payment schedule at time of registration.  If paying by cheque, payment plans are not available and full payment must be received a maximum of two weeks from the registration date.  

As in the past, players are only allowed to register and play with one MHL Association.  Once you register with Meadowvale, or any other Association within the MHL, you will be committed to that Association until you are either accepted or declined if there are no spots available.

When registering using the HCR system you will require the following information:

Valid an email address.  Ensure that it is correctly entered.  This will be the primary method of communication.  Incorrect information may delay or prevent communications about association events, tryouts and evaluations,

Birth Certificate/Registration number or Passport number

Agree to the City of Mississauga & MHL Fair Play Code of Conduct, and all required waivers.  Please read and understand all waivers.  We always hope hockey is for fun and friendship please honor the code of conduct and help keep this fun for everyone.

Review and agree to the requirements in the GTHL Game Plan 2.0 outlining Return to Play framework including Vaccination Policy governing youth hockey in the cities of Mississauga and Toronto.

At the completion of the registration please print registration confirmation.

 

Key Points

When registering, watch for fields marked with an asterisk (*)… these fields are mandatory.  The asterisk isn’t always obvious against the background of HCR.

When entering player email please type the address you want us to use to contact you for important schedules, updates etc.  DO NOT ENTER THE PLAYER’S EMAIL unless they are the primary contact for all communications.

When you set up your Profile, please ensure that the name/address info matches the info related to the credit card holder who will be paying for the registrant(s), assuming you wish to pay by credit card. This is one issue that “haunted” us with the old registration system… if the registrant’s address didn’t match the address on the payer’s credit card statement, the transaction was voided, and the registration would not be completed.

Early in the process you’ll see a spot to enter your “Hockey ID”. If you don’t have one don’t worry about this field, leave it blank.  Later in the process you’ll see a field for “Discount Codes”… you can leave this one blank as well. Multiple player discounts are handled separately from this.

ACROSS THE ONTARIO HOCKEY FEDERATION (OHF): Respect in Sport must be completed by one parent or guardian of the registered player for uninterrupted hockey participation. Please click on the following link to complete the on-line course. http://hockey.on.ca/respect-in-sport-parent-program/
