HCR will only present the applicable age division when registering. Player movement to play in a higher or lower division will be considered based on the following criteria: playing with an immediate family member or skill level of the player. An email requesting such a transfer must be sent to Cathy Hosowich.
If the division or position you are registering for is full you will be presented with a WAIT List option. If you choose to regsiter on the Wait List, procees with the registration process and then it is recommended tht you select payment type "Money Order" near the end of the process.
If player or goalie spots become available, or additional teams are added, you will be contacted by the Division Coordinators for team placement and also by the Registrar to arrange for payment. A minimum of 30 players in any one division is required before consideration is given to adding teams.
The formation of teams is a complex process and takes many hours of volunteer time. Our main goal is to draft teams that are balanced in terns of skill level, experience, forwards & defence and coaches. The Division Coordinators will do their best to place you on a team with a friend however this is not guaranteed.
Part of the attraction of Rec Hockey is being able to play with a friend. Siblings MUST reciprocate each other to play together.
We will now have only 1 friend request, and it MUST be reciprocated.
Our top priority is to create balanced teams.
PeeWee & Bantam - $625
Midget & Junior - $650
All divisions - $400
Spare goalies - $150
