Registration Now OPEN
Submitted By Rachael Torrance on Sunday, February 28, 2021
SMMHA is pleased to announce that we are opening registration for the second part of our 2020-2021 season.
We will be offering an 8-week program for all players which will start on March 15th, 2021. This program will provide skill development, group training, and modified game play for our players (only U9 teams and up).
Further information about programming and COVID-related screening and protocols will be shared with players once registrations have been processed and teams are finalized.


Registration is now open for this 8-week program and will close on March 5th. No late registrations will be accepted. Please keep in mind that this is a new registration which is only open to returning SMMHA players.

Any new interested players will be asked to complete an Expression of Interest Form and contacted if there is availability in any divisions.
 
** Due to physical distancing restrictions in place, we will require that all players are able to stand and skate on their own (including U7 divisions) during this 8-week program. Participants may use their own, approved skating aide to assist in their progression. **

** Please note that masks are now mandatory at the PRC facility and must be worn by all participants (players, coaches, and guardians). **

Only e-transfer payments will be accepted at this time. All e-transfer payments must be processed immediately after completing the online registration. Payments should be sent to [email protected] . Please indicate your player’s name in the Message for your e-transfer. Before registering, please review the SMMHA refund policy posted on our website.

Financial assistance is also available for players during these challenging times. Please see the information posted below and/or contact our registrar at [email protected]

Please Note:
Due to the unusual circumstances of this season, many players have been permitted to bring their own jerseys back and forth to the arena. We kindly ask that you remind your player to take care of this jersey and that all jerseys must be returned to SMMHA in good condition at the end of this season. If this request is not met, then the player will be assessed a $100 fee to replace the jersey.

More registration info can be found here.
