When can I register?

- ONLINE Registration for the 2018-19 season will open April 1st and will remain open until September. However RMHA recommends to register early to avoid being turned away. If a division fills then we will start a waiting list however there is no guarantee you will get in. 

How much is the registration fee?
RMHA uses a fee schedule based on when you register.

Apr 1 - May 31: $555

After Aug 1st the rate is $575.

There are additional discounts for 1st time members as well as our younger players (5 and under) or for families registering 3 or more players. Payment plans exist for those paying by credit card.  

How can I register?
- Registration is available online and payable by credit card only. We do not accept cheques. If you are transferring from another association or if you are registering a *new* player older than 9yrs of age you cannot use the online system. (Use the New Player registration form). 

Are there payment plans?
- IF you are paying by credit card then RMHA has payment plans available. If you are paying by cash you must pay in full (please contact the Registrar if you require additional time or assistance with cash payments). NO CHEQUES are accepted. 

What is the Respect in Sport Parent Course?
- This is an online course that you are required to take and is mandated by Hockey Canada. If you have a NEW player registering and have never taken the course you must do so. If you have a new player registering but have taken the course previously for a sibling then you can login to the course again and add this new player without taking the course again. The course is available here!

What if I want to cancel my registration prior to the start of the season? 

Refunds may be processed up to Oct 31st of the current (see bottom of page for more information). There will be a $40 non-refundable admin fee charged for each refund. 

What if I am transferring from another association?
Players that have played in another association cannot use the online registration system. You must apply via the New Player Registration Form. Contact the Registrar for more information. NEW players older than 9yrs of age must also use the New Player registration form. 
If you are *moving* residences to Riverside then you must also complete the Residential Move questionnaire as required by the OMHA (Ontario Minor Hockey Association). All documentation is to be submitted with the form to the Registrar. 

How do I apply for financial assistance? 
Please refer to the Funding assistance page for details. 

What will my players ice schedule be for the new season?
Calendars will be published on the website in the summer.

What age category is my player in?
The online system will accurately slot your player according to their age. If you have concerns you can contact the Registrar via email for more details. 

Will my player be contacted prior to the start of the season?
Players will not be contacted directly. Each family is expected to watch the website for the dates / times pertaining to their player. ALL houseleague players must attend the ratings days which are held the first weekend *after* Labor Day.

What is Travel Hockey and is my player eligible?
All players that live within the boundaries of RMHA are eligible for Travel hockey. Please contact the VP Travel if you have questions regarding your players eligibility. Please know there is an additional fee charged for Travel players. (Information is available from the VP Travel). 

What is Player Development?
Player development is an optional clinic that you can select during the registration process and pre-pay. If you are unsure then you can wait until September to register for this clinic. The additional cost is to pay for the on-ice instructors as well as the additional ice time. This clinic will assist your player with their skating, puck handling and other base hockey skills that they may require to help improve their play. 

What happens if a division fills up and there is no room?
RMHA has a limit on the number of hours of ice we procure from the City each year therefore we have to limit the number of players that we can accommodate into our teams. If you register early then there won't be a problem. If you wait too long and a division fills then we will start a wait list. Sometimes members cancel their registration and the wait-list players are given a spot so there is still a chance you can play with us in the coming season. 



Refunds for registration must be made in writing to [email protected]
All refunds will be charged a $40 non-refundable admin fee. 
Refunds requested after Sept 15th of the current season will also be charged a pro-rated fee for ice.
NO REFUNDS will be processed after Oct 31st.
