Have you recently moved into the area?
Fort Garry Hockey Association (FGNHA) is comprised of 10 community centres within Winnipeg. Click here for a map. Below is link that describes the boundaries for each community centre.
If your child has never played organized hockey before, then simply log into the Hockey Canada Registration System and create a new player profile.
If your child has previously played on an team before within a hockey association in Canada, your child will already have a Hockey Canada Profile in their name. Before you can register online in FGNHA, your child's profile will need be transferred into FGNHA (this process may take a few days).
If you are moving into FGNHA from outside of Winnipeg you will need to fill out the Hockey Manitoba Change of Residence form, provide a copy of proof of residency (MB Health card, hydro, water, or phone bill with the new address, or proof of purchase of the new home) and provide a copy (or clear photo) of the child's birth certificate. Please email the completed Change of Residence form and birth certificate copy to firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you are moving into FGNHA from another hocky area association from within Winnipeg, then there is no need to provide a copy of a birth certificate.
Please fill out the Hockey Winnipeg Change of Residence form and provide a copy of proof of residency (MB Health Card, hydro, water, or phone bill with the new address, or proof of purchase of the new home) by emailing a scanned copy to email@example.com
September 1 is the date that determines which address should be used for registration. Hockey Winnipeg can adjust this date at their discretion if, for example, you are in the process of moving and will take possession of your new residence in the near future. You will be required to provide proof of purchase in this case to Hockey Winnipeg.
Since you are new to the area, you may not know which community club your home address is located. The definition of FGNHA's 10 community centre boudaries can be found here. If you live south of Bishop Grandin Blvd and west of the Red River, your local hockey association is South Winnipeg Hockey Association (SWHA). For example, the subdivison of Waverly West is part of SWHA.
Confused by all the A's to describe different levels of hockey?
Click here for a listing of the different program levels by age group. The ranking of level of play from the highest level to lowest is AAA, AA, A1, A2, A3. AA in our area is run by the Twins (combination of FGNHA & SWHA players). FGNHA offers both Mixed (Male and Female) and Female divisions.
If the parents of a player live at a separate addresses that are located in two different hockey associations, a notiarized letter (signed by both parents) defining which parent has Sports Registration Authority is required by Hockey Winnipeg. The address of the parent with Sports Registration Authority determines which association the player needs to register in. A scan of the notarized letter will be attached to the player's Hockey Canada profile for future years so there is no need to submit a new letter each year.
Planning on Trying Out for AAA or High School?
Players who have decided to tryout for AAA or high school are required to also register with their local hockey association in order to be eligible to participate in AA tryouts. The FGNHA registration must include the AA tryout option and players must be registered prior to the start of AA tryouts. If you are released from AAA or high school tryouts and are not registered with FGNHA before the start of AA tryouts, the player will not be allowed to attend AA tryouts.
Full payment of the FGNHA registration fee is required when registering online with FGNHA. Payment by credit card or cheque is acceptable. If payment by cheque is selected, please write "AAA Tryout" in the notes section of the cheque. We will do our best not to cash the cheque and we will hold onto the cheque until it is known if the player has made their AAA team or if they have been released. If the player is released we will then cash the cheque. If the player makes AAA we will rip up the cheque. For payment by credit card, players who make AAA or high school will be refunded the full amount of the registration fee (excluding the $2 processing fee charged by the credit card company) to the same credit card once notice has been received that the player has made a AAA or high school team. To speed up the process of refunding the fee, please contact the Registrar of FGNHA by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon it is known that the player has made their AAA or high school team. FGNHA does not forward FGNHA registration fees to AAA if the player makes AAA.
Hockey Canada Registration System

HCR Returning users simply log on with email and password
New HCR users must set up an account
1. New users will need to search for their player. If your player has paticipated in Minor Hockey before, they will already have a profile in the Hockey Canada Registry system. Search for your player by providing Surname, First Name, Birthdate and Gender (the names will need to exactly match). If this is your players first year in Minor Hockey you will need to create a player record. Follow the online instructions.
2. When your player has been identified follow the Register a Participent Link.
3. Each participant may have up to 4 options to choose from. Regular Season by eligable division (one for male and one for female), Regular Season (M/F) with AA tryout, 4x4 and goaltender 4x4. Choose the package you want to register your child into and follow the online instructions. The Goaltender 4x4 option has no fee associated with it.
** Please note that Female refers to Female-Only Division Hockey. If you want your player to participate in Male hockey do not choose the female option. **
4. Please make sure to add each participant to Your Cart before you select Checkout to avoid additional credit card processing fees. Occasionally, the system may require you to check out more than once when enrolling multiple participants. If you encounter difficulties, first try to register the same registrant again (before proceeding to checkout) and this time choose the other registration package. If this does not work then unfortunately you will need to register for each registration package separately (checkout twice, once for all regular registrations and then once again for all players you want to register for 4x4).
5. All 4x4 registrations in this system are for FGNHA 4x4 (not Twins 4x4) and the programs are combined male and female.
6. If at a later date after registering for regular registration you decide that you would like to sign up for FGNHA 4x4, you may sign up for 4x4 in the system as a separate check out item. If the only type of 4x4 that you are signing up for is Goalie 4x4 without any other registrations in your Cart, please select Cheque as the payment option (Goalie 4x4 is free).
Registration for the FGNHA 4x4 Camp, regular season registration and Twins AA tryouts will be done through the Hockey Canada's Hockey Canada Registry (HCR). Selecting the HCR link will forward you to the Hockey Canada registration portal. If you have not registered a player in the HCR before you will be prompted to create a login account. Once logged in, follow the "Register a Participant" link.
As per FGNHA's policy, Female players must choose their category (Female vs Mixed) when they register and movement between these two streams will not be allowed during tryouts.
Females should not be registering to try out for the regular mixed A1 program and then request to move to the female only tryouts if they do not make the team. In order to determine the exact number of teams we will be hosting it is imperative that we know how many players are in each age category.
If players start moving between the Female and Mixed programs after final registration it causes problems for our team formation process.
When registering you may have up to four options available to choose from. Registration for your age group by gender, registration for the Twins AA tryouts (if a team is available at your age group), registration for the FGNHA 4x4 Camp, as well as a goaltender 4x4 option.
You must select either the regular FGNHA registration or the AA registration if you want to try out for the Twins AA program. If you also want to register for the FGNHA 4x4 Camp, you must add the 4x4 package as well. Sometimes the online system will not allow more than one package per checkout depending on the number of children being registered at once.
If you select the AA option you will be registered for the Twins AA tryouts which includes an extra $60.00 cost.
Only players on the lists supplied to the Twins by the area associations will be eligible for Twins tryouts. If a player makes the Twins the regular registration portion will be deducted from the Twins fee and only the remainder will need to be paid to the Twins. If a player does not make the Twins AA program, they are still registered for the FGNHA program and will join these tryouts automatically.
Players that are successfully rostered on a Novice 8A1 team will be invoiced an additional $80 registration fee.
Hockey Winnipeg (AAA, AA, A1, A2, A3) and High School hockey are different programs and have no formal relationship. Therefore if you plan on trying out for high school hockey you must also attend tryouts for teams under Hockey Winnipeg's stream to remain eligible.
For example once Twins tryouts have started and if you have not been attending Twins tryouts and are released from high school, you are not eligible to make a Twins team.
***Only players released from AAA tryouts can join Twins tryouts after the Twins tryouts have started.
All 4x4 registrations in this system are for FGNHA 4x4 (not Twins 4x4) and all 4x4 FGNHA programs are non-contact and combined male and female.
If the only type of 4x4 that you are signing up for is Goalie 4x4 without any other registrations in your Cart, please select Cheque as the payment option (Goalie 4x4 is free).
Regarding players trying out for AAA, one helpful hint is to signup using Cheque as the payment option.....but please remember to write "AAA Tryout" in the notes section of the cheque. We will hold back from cashing your cheque until after your child has been released from the AAA tryouts.
FGNHA Player Evaluation Objectives and Format
Player evaluations are one of the most difficult tasks for our association to complete. Our objectives throughout the Player Evaluation Process reflect those outlined by Hockey Canada.
Objectives of Player Evaluation
- To provide a fair and impartial assessment of a player's total hockey skills during the skill, compete and scrimmage sessions
- To ensure that players have a reasonable opportunity of being selected to a team appropriate to their skill levels as determined during the on-ice evaluations of the current year.
- To provide uniformity and consistency in the evaluation process such that a player and parent expectations are consistent from year to year as players move through the various levels of our programs
- To form teams which maintain balanced and competitive play where the athletes can develop and participate equitably and have fun playing hockey during the season.
Top 10 Questions on Player Evaluation
I. When are the player evaluation sessions?
A set schedule will be posted on our website along with direct email
messages from your volunteer age convenor. We will inform parents and
players of when the initial ice session is and when further ice sessions may
occur pending the results of initial assessments.
II. How many evaluation sessions will there be?
Each player at the 8A1 – Atom levels will have a minimum of 2 evaluation
sessions before being released from a given program or level. The first 2
sessions will focus on skill and individual ability within competitive drills.
Players will then participate in a levelled scrimmage based on our
independent evaluators assessment from the initial 2 sessions.
III. What is being evaluated?
Session 1: Individual skills focusing on skating, puck control, shooting
Session 2: Small area games and competitive drills focusing on Hockey IQ
and individual compete levels
Sessions 3: (and 4 if needed): Scrimmage focusing on involvement,
compete, work ethic and level of in-game skill.
* As players increase in age, greater importance and time will be devoted
towards scrimmage play.
IV. Who will do the evaluations?
All evaluations will be conducted by independent
evaluators and FGNHA volunteers including:
- On-ice coaches to take players through the session
- Off-ice evaluators who will be responsible to evaluate every player on the ice during the time allotted.
- Off-ice administrators who will be responsible for tracking evaluations, contacting parents and players and cheduling sessions.
V. What should my son/daughter wear to the evaluation?
Full equipment is always mandatory. This includes:
- Protective cup
- Shin pads
- Hockey pants
- Shoulder pads
- Elbow pads
- Hockey gloves
- Hockey stick
- CSA approved helmet and full shield
- Neck guard and mouth guard
- Jersey and socks
Players will be assigned a piney upon their arrival at the rink. The
evaluators will only know the players piney number - not their name.
VI. How are the players notified of their standing within the process?
Players will be informed by the Off-ice administrators who are responsible
for tracking evaluations, contacting parents and players and scheduling
sessions. Players will not be informed at the rink but by the off-ice
administrator via email.
VII. Will the player be evaluated in a skill and game environment?
In order to give each and every player a fair opportunity to exhibit the range
of skills that they possess they will be evaluated in a game and skill environment. At the younger age levels a greater emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of skills - as the players get older the game or scrimmage sessions will have a greater overall impact on the players placement.
VIII. What happens after the evaluation sessions?
Upon the completion of evaluations players will be contacted by the coach of their team. The coach will outline:
- An Initial Practice schedule
- Introduction of other coaches
- Setting of first meeting with parents and players
We wish all of our players the best of luck in preparing for and participating within our evaluation sessions.
We count on our community’s support in understanding that the decisions made are never easy for our evaluators
and are made only with the best intentions to provide each player with an enjoyable season filled with growth and success.
