NMHA Online Registration


Registration for the 2020– 2021 Season is now open and will close on August 1st, 2020.

If you have any questions regarding registration, please direct to [email protected]

The link to the actual Registration page is at the bottom of this page.  Please take the time to read the following information carefully before proceeding to the Online Registration.

Hockey Canada and its Members are working diligently on a return-to-hockey plan based on direction from provincial and territorial governments and health authorities. In order for us to be able to plan for next season, we have opened our registration system for the 2020-21 season and are asking our members to register with NO PAYMENT AT THIS TIME. Once we have direction from Hockey Canada and the OHF and know when the season is going to start and what it will look like, we will then be able to determine registration fees and payment plans, provide further information on programming and invoice the payment required. For now, when you checkout, it will give you cheque option only.   Credit card payment will be an available option at time of invoicing.

Registration for the 2020-2021 season is open to players born in the years 2000 through to 2016.

We recommend that new players be somewhat comfortable on skates, be able to navigate themselves across the ice with minimal assistance and to get up on their own when they fall down. Our experience has shown that when a first time player feels they have a chance to move with the play then they are more likely to enjoy the experience.

Effective as of the 2020-21 season, Hockey Canada has renamed the age divisions in minor hockey to alpha-numeric division names.  All players must register in their age appropriate division. It is not necessary to know your child’s division; the system will default to the correct division once you enter your child’s date of birth. Here are the new designations for registration purposes:

A participant is subject to a Concussion Code of Conduct for each Sports Organization a participant registers with.

The OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources must be reviewed on an annual basis before one can register/participate in the OHF.

Click on
Rowan’s Law under the registration tab so that you and your child(ren) can review the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources.

Before reaching the payment page and checking out, participants, and his/her parent/guardian (if under the age of 18) will be asked to verify that one has reviewed the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources by checking off the mandatory Waiver Box.


Initial setup by the NMHA office is required for all players registering for the first time (have not registered with a hockey association before). You can send an email to [email protected]  with the following information about the child(ren) you wish to register.

1.    First and last name

2.    Date of birth

3.    Physical address including postal code

4.    Email address

5.    Home / Cell Telephone Number

6.    Copy of birth certificate and proof of residency (i.e. copy of driver's license or utility bill) scan and attach to email

Once all of the above has been submitted, a profile will be created for your child(ren).  Once complete, a return email will be sent informing you that you can now register online and to complete the Parent Respect in Sport Program (see below for details).

PARENT RESPECT IN SPORT - Mandatory Requirement for your child to be eligible to play (New Players Only)

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) mandates that at least one parent must complete the Parent Respect in Sport Program as "a condition of participation" for their child or children registered with NMHA.  In other words, if at least one parent does not complete the course your son/s and/or daughter/s will be ineligible to play in all hockey programs - House League, Rep, MD, Select and Rostered Select until such time this one-hour online education course has been successfully completed.  NOTE: The Respect in Sport– Activity Leader certification for team officials does not meet the parent requirement.  The certification for the parent is tailored to the Role of the parent, providing information specific to the parental involvement, while the Activity Leader program has a different focus.   The RIS - Activity Leader certification is uploaded to the individual’s profile.  The RIS – Parent certification is uploaded to the players (child’s) profile. 

A one-time fee of $12 plus tax per family will apply. It takes about one hour to complete and must be completed by Sept 1st.

This course only needs to be done once, so it you took it last year or in a previous year, you do not need to take it again.

Moving to Newmarket

If you have moved to Newmarket and have played in another hockey centre, go to "Moving to Newmarket-Residential Transfer Procedure" page for information on how to complete a transfer to Newmarket.

We do accept out of town residents. An additional fee TBD applies to all out of town registrations. As a Non-Newmarket resident you will have to contact our office first at [email protected]  to have your child’s profile transferred to Newmarket.  Once our office receives the players profile, you will be notified by email that you are now able to register online.

Players registering with NMHA cannot play with any other team outside the jurisdiction of the NMHA (with the exception of school teams) during the 2020-21 season to maintain eligibility to play with NMHA.

NMHA reserves the right to refuse/deny registration.

There may be two goalies assigned to a team as required.

NMHA reserves the right to move players in order to provide a fair and balanced house league program. In cases of dispute, a pro-rated refund will be available.

For information on equipment requirements please click on our Equipment  page.

Refunds: Please read our Refund Policy                       

Anyone interested in coaching a House League team must complete the online HL Coach Application. Click Here to Access the Application

If your address has changed within Newmarket the past year, make sure to update your profile with your new address with Quick Enrollment. In addition, you must also email your new address to [email protected]  as our office has to send a request to the OMHA office to have the players address updated on his profile in the HCR system. Only the OMHA office can change an address on a player’s profile.
