It's Registration Time! Be sure to take advantage of the Early Bird
Submitted By lcampbell on Thursday, March 1, 2012
Hockey registration for next season (i.e. the 2012-13 season) is happening this coming Saturday (March 3rd) from 10am to 4 pm at the Arena. It's very important to register either on that day or no later than March 31st in order to take advantage of the Early Bird registration fees (a $200 discount).

Spring registration for next season is vitally important as it forms the basis for our planning for next season. Our registration numbers determine how many teams we'll have, the number of coaches that we'll need, and influences our ice purchases.

There have been a number of changes from last season:
  • gate revenue and referee/timekeeper expenses will be each team's responsibility (i.e. the teams keep their gate revenue but are responsible for paying their referees and timekeepers).
  • teams will be eligible to fundraise for their team's expenses (such as tournament registration fees or other hockey-related costs) following Executive approval of the fundraising activity.
  • the bond hour program has been discontinued (i.e. no more bond hour cheques).
In addition, work is underway to have on-line registration available for those who are returning players and paying by credit card in one payment. Watch the website for further details on when this service launches. New registrants or returning registrants paying by cheque or wanting to take advantage of our deferred payment plan will still need to register in person.

In addition to the above fees, there is a $100 fundraising fee per registrant which can be recovered when the registrant sells all ten $10 raffle tickets (the registrants keep the proceeds from the tickets as they sell them).

The Details
Unless you are paying all your fees in one cheque dated March 3rd, you will need a minimum of 3 cheques PER CHILD at the time of registration:
  • 1 for $100 for the registration deposit,
  • 1 for the $100 fundraising raffle tickets, and
  • at least one for the remainder of the balance (more cheques if you want to take advantage of our schedule to spread out the payments).
For those using our deferred payment plan, the cheques for the remaining balance are to be dated as follows: June 1, Sept 1, and Nov 1. Please be prepared to provide all the required cheques to cover your full registration amount at the time of registration.

Please note that all registrations are subject to a non-refundable registration deposit fee of $100 per player.

If your child has never played hockey with Seaforth Minor Hockey or never played hockey before, a birth certificate is required to register.

First time registrants with Seaforth Minor Hockey who are Novice, Atom, or PeeWee will receive a one time discount of 50% off the base registration fee.

All returning members registering after the March 31st Early Bird deadline will be charged an additional $200.

As always, p
ast due accounts must be paid or arrangements made before a child or children will be allowed on the ice in September.

If finances are an issue, please be assured that arrangements for payment plans to suit special circumstances may be made upon submitting a confidential request to the Treasurer or Registrar. We also have contacts for financial assistance and can provide them as well. For further information, please contact Lisa at 519-527-0521 or email [email protected].

Please mark this Saturday, March 3rd on your calendar and be sure to drop by the arena between 10am and 4pm with your cheques to complete registration for next season.


If you are unable to make this date, or for more information, please contact our Registrar, Lisa Campbell, to arrange registration by calling 519-527-0521 or by emailling her at
