REGISTRATION

Online Registration

Registration Now Open for the 2020-21 Hockey Season! 

Registration will close on Tuesday, September 8th. A late fee of $100 will be added after this date.  

FGNHA uses the Hockey Canada Online Registration System for all participants in the regular season, the Player Development Program & Twins AA Tryouts.

 

 

You will be forwarded to FGNHA’s Hockey Canada registration portal.

Note: Registration Fees do not cover costs associated with Practice Ice, Tournaments or Windups (among other things). Parents will be required to pay additional team fees throughout the season in order to cover those additional costs. Depending on age and level of play, the team fees could range between $300 and $750.

To Begin:

Login to HCR.  If you have used Hockey Canada’s online registration system in the past (in FGNHA or any other minor hockey association in Canada), use the same email address to login again.  Otherwise, you will need to create a new account.  Note:  The account profile information is for a parent/guardian, not your child.

 

Step 1 of 6 – Participant Selection.  Enter the participants name, birth date and gender and click “Register”.  If the participant has registered in Fort Garry North previously then the information will populate, otherwise a new profile will be created.

Note for Transferring Players:  If the participant has registered in another area/city/province previously (and you have moved to FGNHA), the HCR system will be “unavailable” until the Change of Residence has been approved by Hockey Winnipeg.  Contact the FGNHA Registrar at fgnha.registrar@gmail.com and we will send you the correct Hockey Canada transfer form so you can complete the transfer process.

 

Step 2 of 6 – Choose a Registration Type.  Select “Participants”

 

Step 3 of 6 – Division Selection.  The divisions will populate based on the birth date you have entered for the participant.

Please note that “Female” refers to the Storm Hockey female-only division.  If you want your player registered in the combined male/female division, please do not choose the female option.

 

Step 4 of 6 – Registration Package Selection.  Confirm the Division/Package you have selected for the participant.

 

Step 5 of 6 – Participant Information.  Enter the required information.

Note:  Please provide current phone numbers (cell phone number if possible) and your primary email address (please don’t use your child’s email address).

Twins AA Tryouts – Male and female players ages 11-17 will be asked if they want to attend the Twins AA Tryouts.  Don’t forget to add the Twins tryout fee to your total prior to checkout.  If a player does not make the Twins AA program they are still registered for the FGNHA program and will join these tryouts automatically.

Your total registration fees will appear at the bottom.  Click “Review”.  The system will prompt you for any missing information

 

Step 6 of 6 – Participant’s Registration Review

If you have another participant to add, select “Add to Cart” to confirm this registration.  You can then register someone else before checking out.

 

Checkout

Credit card is the only form of payment accepted by FGNHA. Make sure you have a Visa/Mastercard with you before completing the registration. If you do not currently have a credit card, banks and Canada Post have prepaid credit cards that can be used.  Visa or Mastercard Gift cards will also work.

Note:  Please do not complete the registration process until the credit card transaction has been processed.  If you select “Other” payment by mistake, the system will not allow you to return later and pay with a credit card.  If this happens, contact the registrar to have the registration deleted and start over.

Select “Other” only if you will be applying for financial assistance (refer to Financial Assistance Programs for further information).

 

Please remember your login information for future registrations.

Any questions, please contact the FGNHA Registrar at fgnha.registrar@gmail.com.

REGISTRATION

Moving to FGNHA - Registration Procedure

If your child has been registered in another hockey association in Canada or the U.S., even at the U7 or U9 level, you will not be able to register with Fort Garry North Hockey Association until a transfer process with Hockey Winnipeg and/or Hockey Manitoba has been completed.

It can take a couple of weeks for this process to complete.

Until the transfer is complete, the on-line registration system will not accept your registration.

Step 1 -  Please send an e-mail to the FGNHA Registrar at fgnha.registrar@gmail.com and include the following:

  • Players Full Name

  • Players date of birth

  • Name of centre where the player is/was currently registered

Step 2 - Once received, the registrar will forward the Change of Residence form.  This form is required for a residential move into our association.

Step 3 - Once the Change of Residence form is completed, and supporting documents provided (see below), the registrar will coordinate the player transfer with Hockey Winnipeg.

Step 4 - Once transfer is completed, the registrar will send the parent/guardian an email with confirmation, and online registration can be completed.

Forms:

Required Supporting Documents to be included with all Change of Residence forms:

  1. A copy of the player's birth certificate.

  2. A copy of proof of residency which can be:
    a) Copy of fully executed Rental Agreement, registered transfer of ownership, or Agreement of Purchase and Sale, or;
    b) Copy of Parent(s)’ updated Manitoba medical card (Note: Drivers’ licenses are not accepted), or;
    c)  Copy of a utility bill (i.e. Hydro/Gas or telephone/cable/internet) demonstrating the parent(s)’ name and new address.
    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 or rental agreement in this case to Hockey Winnipeg.

  3. If applicable, Hockey Winnipeg will require a notarized letter of sports registration authority signed by both parents.  If the parents of a player live at separate addresses and these addresses are located in two different hockey associations, both parents need to agree in this notarized letter which parent has Sports Registration Authority over each child.  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.  Each child must be registered for hockey in the same area each year unless a new notarized letter of sports registration authority is provided.

 

Additional information on a player’s home zone is available in the Hockey Winnipeg Rulebook.

REGISTRATION

Player Transfers

Player transfers occur when a player isn’t physically moving but will be playing for a team that is not in their home area association.

Player transfers must be approved (in order) by the releasing minor hockey association, the accepting/receiving minor hockey association, Hockey Winnipeg, and Hockey Manitoba.  This process can take several weeks.  

For any kind of transfer (area to area, or Region to Region), a parent/guardian must submit the request online from the Hockey Manitoba website and complete the form (http://forms.hockeymanitoba.ca/transfer/).  The online request will be transferred automatically to the appropriate area for approval/denial.  If approved, the request will be emailed to the next area/association for approval/denial.  This form is intended for a parent/guardian to complete so they can see the progress as it is approved or denied.

Player transfers are approved for one year only.  Players must return to play in their home association when the season is over.  After 3 consecutive annual transfers, a player is automatically a member of the area association they transferred to.

Transferring In to FGNHA

After a transfer has been approved, players must register online and make payment to FGNHA prior to participating in team activities.  If applicable, players make separate arrangements for a refund from their home area hockey association.  FGNHA does not have internal transfer arrangements with other area minor hockey associations.

Transferring Out of FGNHA

After a transfer has been approved, players can request a refund from the FGNHA Registrar.  Credit card refunds are processed within a week.  Cheque refunds will take up to 3 weeks since cheques must be signed by 2 executive members and mailed out.

Note: Miscellaneous Fees for tryouts and pre-season ice may apply depending on the individual situation.

2)  Canadian Tire Jumpstart

Canadian Tire Jumpstart is a national charitable program that helps financially disadvantaged kids ages 4-18 participate in organized sport and recreation.

Since each child’s financial needs are unique and in order to assist as many kids as possible, funding levels vary depending on these variables.  In 2013, a child could receive up to a maximum of $150 per activity for two different activities, through the year.

The grant can be applied towards hockey registration fees. Team fees (practice ice, tournament fees) are ineligible. Payment is made directly to FGNHA on behalf of the family/child.

Proceeds from Hockey Winnipeg’s Dianne Woods Memorial Player Financial Assistance Program can be applied to program registration fees and/or team fees (practice ice, tournament fees).  Funding is sent directly to FGNHA on behalf of the qualifying youth or child.  The amount of annual funding is determined by Hockey Winnipeg’s VP of Operations, in conjunction with the Executive Director subject to annual maximums and/or local demands.

 

4)  Kidsport

Based on demonstrated need, Kidsport assistance of up to $300 per individual is available to children ages 18 and under to help offset the cost of registration fees.  Team fees (practice ice, tournament fees) are ineligible.  Funding is sent directly to FGNHA on behalf of the qualifying youth or child.

This new program aims to help Canadian families and communities get youth back on the ice through registration fee support. Applications can be done by the families themselves OR on behalf of those in need by their local MHA.

REGISTRATION

AA Hockey (Twins)

The Twins AA Hockey Program is a joint venture between Fort Garry North Hockey Association (FGNHA) and South Winnipeg Hockey Association (SWHA).  The Twins Executive is comprised of two appointed members, (one from each SWHA and FGNHA) and an elected executive who manages this high quality competitive AA hockey program.

AA Hockey within the Hockey Winnipeg system begins at the U13 age group (11/12) and continues on until the U18 age (15/16/17).  The Twins host 8 AA teams:

Note: New for the 2019-2020 season, Hockey Winnipeg has eliminated what was formerly known as “Minor” and “Major” categories for both Peewee and Bantam, and combined them into one division, however the plan is to field 2 AA Twins teams of equal calibre in each of the Peewee and Bantam divisions.

U13 (11/12) Two Teams

U15 (13/14) Two Teams

U18 (15/16/17)

Female U13 (11/12)

Female U15 (13/14)

Female U18 (15/16/17)

Players wishing to tryout for a Twins AA team must first register with FGNHA and be sure to add the Twins tryout at the time of registration.

Non-parent coaches are recruited, interviewed, and selected in the late spring/early summer for the following season.  Coaches make player selections during the team formation tryout process in the fall, and players who are not selected for AA are released to take part in the try-out process for their respective hockey association (either FGNHA or SWHA).

For more information on the Twins AA Hockey program, visit the Twins AA Hockey website.

 

REGISTRATION

AAA Hockey & High School

AAA – Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Winnipeg mandate that all players trying out for the AAA program must first register with their home hockey association.  Therefore, all AAA players residing in the Fort Garry North catchment area must register online for hockey with FGNHA.

High School – High School hockey is a separate program in Winnipeg.  We recommend that players also register with FGNHA and attend FGNHA tryouts, pending the high school results.  Players not registered with FGNHA cannot be placed on AA or A1 teams if they haven’t attended tryouts.

 

AAA and High School Player Refunds:

Players/parents must email the FGNHA Registrar to request a refund if the player is successful in their attempt to make a AAA or HS team (fgnha.registrar@gmail.com).

Players who attend FGNHA tryouts are required to cover $50 ice fees for pre-season skates.  The amount will be deducted from any refund.

Note:  To save the $10 credit card refund fee, we recommend that players involved in AAA or High School tryouts select “other” during online registration and mail a post-dated cheque to the registrar (address below).  Cheque payments received for these players will be retained by FGNHA and negotiated only after the AAA/HS teams have been formed – on or about the first week of October.  These cheques can be post-dated October 1st

Upon receipt of email notification, a credit for the FGNHA registration fee will be applied back to your credit card [1] or your cheque will be destroyed.

Failure to inform FGNHA via email by October 10th will result in the negotiation of your cheque.

Cheques can be made out to FGNHA and sent to:

Fort Garry North Hockey Association (FGNHA)

c/o Denise Ferreira, Registrar

652 Jubilee Ave

Winnipeg, MB R3L 1P6

email: fgnha.registrar@gmail.com

 

[1] All credit card refunds processed by FGNHA will be subject to a $10.00 refund processing fee.

Respect in Sport Parent Program

Beginning in the 2014-2015 Season, Hockey Winnipeg implemented the mandatory online Respect in Sport “Parent Program”.  In order for a child to be eligible to play on a sanctioned Hockey Winnipeg team, this online course must be completed by at least one parent or legal guardian of any minor hockey player before the child can be registered.  The RIS Parent Program is separate from the RIS Coach/Manager certification and therefore must be completed regardless of whether you have taken the RIS Coach certification in the past.  This online program only takes about 1 hour to complete and the cost is $12 plus GST.  Please make sure to add all of your children (who will be registering for hockey) to your RIS Parent Program profile.

This Program must be completed by November 1st for your child to be rostered on a hockey team

Information regarding the parent program, including the link to register can either be found on your Area Association’s website or through here.  The direct link to take the online Parent program course can be found here.

RESPECT IN SPORT PARENT PROGRAM

FAQ'S

How will the family accounts of the Respect In Sport Parent Program link to the Hockey Canada Registry?


At registration, the parent must associate a child or children to her/his profile (Child Management) where an association must be selected. After a parent is certified, and assuming he/she has associated a child to his profile, the HCR record of the child is updated under Clinics and Qualifications, including the Respect in Sport certificate number. PLEASE ENSURE THAT THE PERSON REGISTERING FOR THE COURSE COMPLETES THE FOLLOWING SECTION: Enter the proper child information in the Child Management Page, then click on No Further Children to Add when done.




What are the payment options for the RIS for Parents online course?


The $12 payment is done through PayPal, by credit card or debit card. Payment is due at registration and is the responsibility of the person taking the course.




How will the area associations know who has completed the course?


The Project Manager of the Respect Group will run reports to ensure the area hockey associations have the information needed at the association level. The Project Manager has access to tools for exceptions, mainly when a parent is certified and has forgotten to associate a child to his profile (one of the most common registration errors) so he can verify if a parent has actually taken the course, but is not aligned to their child’s profile.




Do team officials who have taken Respect in Sport – Activity Leader/Coach Program have to also take Respect in Sport – Parent Program?


Yes. The Respect in Sport Parent Program compliments Respect in Sport for Coaches/Activity Leaders. Regardless if a Parent holds Respect in Sport – Activity Leader Program certification, one parent per family must take the Respect in Sport – Parent Program certification.
