Registration Information

Registration for the 2021/22 House League season will be opening on Wednesday, July 28. If you wish to register for tryouts for the MD Hurricanes, please go here.

Hockey Canada has launched a brand new Hockey Canada Registry (HCR 3.0) system. Some organizations opened registration in early July, but there are still glitches which has been a cause for delay. With the new registration system, it will look A LOT different for both parents and administrators. Please go to this page to register and to find out how to create a NEW account in the new system.

Funding Help

Several organizations are available to help with funding for registration fees for families in need. APPLY EARLY before the season starts! These include the Canadian Tire JumpStart ProgramHockey Canada Assist Fund, the Niagara Region ProKids Program, and the Niagara KidSport Program.


CYO Hockey usually runs on Saturdays and Sundays with the older divisions having some week night game (usually U18 and sometimes U15).

U6 - FUNdamentals - 1 hour per week (usually starts in October around Thanksgiving, Saturday or Sunday mornings)

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: 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.

Currently there is an issue on Hockey Canada's end and the system is not recognizing 2017 and 2018 born players. If you would like to sign up your child for FUNdamentals, please e-mail the registrar with your child's name so we can put them on the list to participate and reserve your spot.

U7 (Initiation Program "IP") - 1 to 2 hours per week cross-ice (depending on Covid restrictions if any)

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 U7 Hockey Canada Player pathway is designed for players 5 and 6 years old and is suitable to all skill levels at this age group.

U9 (Novice) - 1 to 2 hours per week half-ice until January

The U9 program focuses on skill development in a half-ice environment. The U9 Hockey Canada Player Pathway is designed for 7 and 8 year olds. The skills of skating, puck control, passing and shooting are introduced and refined one step at a time with a focus on fun and skill development.

U11 (Atom) - 1 to 2 hours per week (varies)

The U11 program continues with skill development and skill refinement in a full-ice environment. Players will be evaluated according to the U11 Hockey Canada Player Pathway guidelines in the first 3-4 sessions on the ice. Team placement will be based on balancing skill level.
