For all new registrants, we require proof of age (ie. birth certificate, passport), proof of residency (ie. utility or tax bill), and a Respect in Sport number (see below in item # 7 for the link).
3. HOW WE CONTACT YOU
Our primary method of contacting you is by email. You will be asked to provide up to 3 email addresses (ie: one for each parent). Please ensure that:
- Player/Participant: This is the only email address we will use to contact you prior to team formation. Make sure that this is the most often checked and reliable email address to contact your family. This will be the address that we will contact you at for evaluations.
- Parent #1: This is a secondary email address that can be used as a back up if the primary address is not getting through to your family
- Parent #2: A third email address. The parent email addresses are used after team formation.
Attempting to put more than one email address in one data entry field will ensure that neither email address is recognized. Put only one email address in a data entry field!
4. CHOOSING POSITIONS
For Atom and older, you have the option of choosing which position the player prefers to play. At the Atom level select from Goaltender, Defence, or Forward. For Pee Wee and older select from any option.
NOTE: For Atom, players choosing Defence or Forward will be expected to play both Defence and Forward
