Welcome to Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association.
Return to Hockey – Update July 28, 2020
It is an excellent sign, we have been receiving a large number of inquiries about the 2020/2021 MHL hockey season. Many people have been asking about the return of hockey to Mississauga, specifically the plans of the MHL and our six Area Associations. Although we currently don’t have the return to play plans worked-out we can provide an update on how this may be moving forward.
As the Province of Ontario continues to advance through the various stages of the pandemic, we felt it would be a good time to provide an update to those who have been inquiring about the return to play.
In the coming few weeks, the GTHL, the governing body of the MHL, will be circulating a plan to the Minor Hockey Association Members which will include more details on plans for return to play. The MHL, the Area Associations, and the City of Mississauga are working together preparing for the return of hockey. When we return to play we are assuming we will need to put the pieces in place quickly to deliver the programming you have come to expect from the MHL. The season may look different. Items we usually prepared months in advance may be short notice deliverables. Our goal remains the same though, to deliver the same fun environment you have come to expect year after year.
Rest assured we have not been sitting idle during these times and we continue to prepare for the return of hockey for the MHL and the six Area Associations.
We will provide further updates as soon as we have more to share.
Please remember, registration is open and a $50.00 fully refundable deposit is your best chance of reserving a spot.
Stay safe and healthy and thank you for your patience.
President Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association
The Mississauga Hockey League (MHL) and the six associations under the MHL’s purview have been working together to plan for the 2020-2021 hockey season. There is much uncertainty surrounding the up and coming hockey season. The six MHL associations have decided to open registration for House League and Ice Puppys. This will help the associations start to work through the many logistical pieces that come together to provide the best experience we can. This year, many of these items are going to be completed much later than normal because of the shutdown.
Considering the uncertainty, our six associations have opened the registration for house league without final pricing for the age groups. In order to register at this time and guarantee a spot for the 2020-2021 House League and Ice Puppys, a fully refundable $50.00 deposit and the completion of the Hockey Canada registration is all that is required. After final pricing is published, all registered players will be provided some number of weeks, yet to be determined, to decide if they would like a full refund or continue with the payment plan to cover the balance of the cost. You will be notified by email when the final pricing for the season is posted.
We will provide updates as more information is available. We hope to provide more information in mid to late June. In June or July, we are hoping to provide an update on Rep “A” and Gold registration.
We hope you are staying safe and healthy. We also wish to thank those many front-line supporters who are doing heroic work in this very difficult time.
The tentative registration fees have been broken down in order to shows the allocations of the fees, to the Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association (MMHA) and our governing body the Mississauga Hockey League (MHL).
To make payments easier to manage, we’ve continued a “staggered payment plan” that will break payments down into monthly credit card payments from registration date, first payment following the $50.00 deposit will start September 1,2020, and every 1st of the month, completing February 1, 2021.
As per the City of Mississauga, an additional $65.00 per player fee will be applied to registrants from outside of Mississauga. This is a City of Mississauga and not an MHL or MMHA fee. Residents from outside of Mississauga must indicate this when registering.
If you have any questions please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Registration for the 2020-2021 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 at a later date 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 MHL or with Meadowvale for the first time will go through the same procedure as returning players. You will be accepted as space permits. A limited number of players from outside the City of Mississauga will be permitted to register and play on Meadowvale House League teams.
MMHA Early Bird registration – I hereby acknowledge that if registering for the Early Bird package I understand that if I select payment by cheque, payment must be received in full or post dated cheques are provided no later then June 30th at 11:59pm. Cheques can be mailed into the Box 21113 6677 Meadowvale Town Centre Circle, Mississauga, On, L5N 6A2. Failure to provide payment on time will result in registration order reverting to new fees.
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 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 different variables. The budget will be divided equally by the number of players on a team. Each family will share equally in these team expenses:
– additional ice time (on top of the any weekly practice provided by MMHA)
– additional training/specialty programs
– tournaments and exhibition games (permits, registration fees, referee costs)
– goalie training
– coaching and volunteer certification cost
– team apparel
– Team events, such as year end parties and other
Once a Head Coach and Team Manager determine their 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 are usually required 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 (Spring). House League Coaches will typically determine and discuss budgets during the convening period (September-October).
All registrations will take place on-line. Payment can be handled on-line by credit card or by mailed cheque. 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. Please understand and honor this code of conduct.
At the completion of the registration please print registration confirmation.
- When registering, watch for fields marked with an asterisk (*)… these fields are mandatory. The asterisk isn’t always very 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.
- Certain older Internet Explorer version 6 browsers have issues at the Address section of Online Registration. They do not have any fields to type in information and cannot continue. It is not ALL version 6 browsers; it is a specific version of that version 6 browser that, for some reason, does not show the address fields on that page. You can check your Internet Explorer version by clicking on Help > About Internet Explorer within Internet Explorer. It is recommended that you update your browser to the newest version by going to the Microsoft Update site at http://update.microsoft.com/ since version 6 is over 7 years old and is extremely insecure.
