Registration Information


Registration for the 2020/21 season will be opening Monday, August 24 at 8:00 am!

Payment options currently are only via credit card during registration or e-transfer to [email protected] If using e-transfer, please ensure you put the player(s) name(s) and division in the Notes area. 

The CYO season will be broken into 4 "mini-seasons" to accommodate the ice booking blocks from the city, as well as requirements and guidelines from the OHF and Alliance Hockey to ensure that should the season structure change, we are more easily prepared to adjust.

Players must register and pay in full for each block as it comes up. Notices will be sent to all players when registration for the next block is open for signup.

BLOCK 1 - October 1st to October 31st
BLOCK 2 - November/December
BLOCK 3 - January/February
BLOCK 4 - March/April

Full-time registered goalies from U11 to U20 receive a $55 discount PER BLOCK. 

Family Discounts will be applied in the FINAL BLOCK. See below for further information.

ALL CYO PLAYERS regardless of age MUST WEAR FULL EQUIPMENT. Mouthguards are mandatory for all ages.

***** NOTE: REQUESTED REFUNDS (that are not related to having to transfer back to your home association) will be granted per block, minus a $20 administrative fee per block.


U6 - FUNdamentals - 1 hour per week 

FUNdamentals is a structured, learn-to-play hockey program that uses Hockey Canada’s U7 Program (includes 3-5 year olds) curriculum to teach beginners basic technical skills (skating, puck handling, stopping, passing, turning and shooting) in an atmosphere that stresses FUN, cooperation and fair play.

NOTE: for the 2020-2021 season - FUNdamentals participants MUST be able to stand and move independently on the ice without assistance. With the current restrictions on the number of participants we are unable to provide enough coaches to provide a learn-to-skate component.

U7 (Initiation Program "IP") - 1 hour per week

The U7 program is an introduction to hockey in a safe, fun, and positive environment. The program is structured as a confidence building and learn-to-play experience designed to introduce players to basic hockey skills and team-play. The program is designed for players 5 and 6 years old and is suitable to all skill levels at this age group.

U9 (Novice), U11 (Atom), and U13 (Peewee)  - 1 to 2 hours per week.

These programs will be a mix of practices and games. To help with distancing, the U9 (Novice) teams will be full ice. The game structure for these levels will be following the OHF guidelines of 4-on-4 game play, with each team consisting of 8 skaters (two lines of 4) and 1 goalie position per team.  

U15 (Bantam), U18 (Midget), U20 (Juvenile) - 1 to 2 hours per week.

These programs will be following the OHF guidelines for 3-on-3 game play, with each team consisting of 9 skaters (3 lines of 3) and 1 goalie per team.

Fair Play and Team Allocation

The CYO has a well defined team allocation process to help us ensure that our teams are as even as we can make them in skill level. While we do our best to ensure players can play with their friends on the team of their choice, this is not always possible due to the number of players per team.

Family Plan Pricing

Families with two or more players (siblings with the same parents) are eligible for fee discounts. The second player to register receives a $75 discount in the final block. The 3rd, 4th, 5th player from the same family receives a $100 discount in the final block. Discounts do not apply when siblings are in the MD program. Siblings must have registered and played in Blocks 1, 2, and 3 to qualify for the 4th block discount. ***PLEASE REGISTER YOUR CHILDREN FROM OLDEST TO YOUNGEST in order for the family discounts to calculate correctly.***

Funding Help

Several organizations are available to help with funding for registration fees for families in need. These include the Canadian Tire JumpStart Program, the Niagara Region ProKids Program, and the Niagara KidSport Program.


Player fees must be paid in full for the block (or confirm funding arrangements with the office) to confirm your spot on a team.
