There is a $50 late fee for anyone (Novice through Midget) registering after June 30th, 2018.

Rep Tryout Dates

Rep tryouts will be held either the 2nd last week of August (Mon. Aug. 20th to Thurs. Aug. 23rd) and/or the last week of August (Mon. Aug. 27th to Thurs. Aug. 30th).  Participation in tryouts is mandatory for anyone wishing to play Rep hockey next season.  Please plan your summer holidays accordingly.  AE tryouts will occur the first week of September.

Returning Players

To complete the online registration process, go to the PMHA Online Registration page hosted on the Hockey Canada website and follow the instructions there.  Once you complete the online registration process, you must arrange payment.  See payment options below.

Online registration will close on Friday, June 8th, 2018.  Players not registered by this date will be placed on a waiting list until division numbers are finalized.

New Players

New players must register in person and must provide the player's Birth Certificate and the parent's drivers license.  These are the only acceptable pieces of identification.

New player registration nights are:
                      Monday, May 28th from 7:00pm to 8:00pm (Penetang Arena)
                      Monday, June 4th from 7:00pm to 8:00pm (Penetang Arena)

If you are unable to attend either in person registration night, please contact the registrar to make alternate arrangements.

If you are new to the area and your child has played previously for a different association, you will need to fill out a OMHA Residential Move Form

Please note that space in some divisions is limited and new players to the PMHA cannot be guaranteed a roster spot upon registration.

Preference will always be given to players in our boundaries if cap restrictions are required.

Tryout fees are $30 and are due at the first tryout.

Rep/AE Fees

Rep/AE fees (if applicable) are $130 and are due to the team manager prior to Oct 1, 2018.
