2014-2015 House League and Learn to Play Registration

Online registration will open on Wednesday Apr 16 at 10:00 am. If you are a new player please DO NOT create an account for your child with the Hockey Canada system prior to April 16, 2014. This account will not be attached to the North York Knights website and you will be unable to register for the NYK at the time we open registration. Once registration is open you will be permitted to enter into the HCR registration system by entering your email address at the bottom of this page.

Please review the following instructions in order to successfully complete your child’s online registration.

Consider printing this page so you have it available during the process.

When registering, we request that you use an email address that you check regularly as this will be our means of communication with you  and our players.

Please do NOT use your child’s email address for registration purposes. If you have used your child’s email address within the registration system, you do have an option to edit the information. Note that all communication from the league will be forwarded to the email address that you have provided during registration.

 

Hockey Canada Registry

The North York Knights Hockey Association (the “Knights”) uses the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) for enrolment.  If you are a returning player, you will be able to enter the site using the email and password that was used in the previous year. If you are a new player you will need to create a new profile using your email address and creating a password.

All fields within the registration are self explanatory and the system will prompt you if you forget to answer any of the mandatory questions. Once you complete the Member’s Information you will choose which Division your child will be playing in. Please note that only the name of the division will appear (i.e. Novice, Atom, Bantam, etc) based on the player’s birth date as entered.   In the next step you will be prompted to choose Major or Minor according to your child’s year of birth. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE YOUR CHILD IN A DIVISION  FOR WHICH THEY ARE INELIGIBLE. PLEASE NOTE IF YOU DO REGISTER FOR A DIVISION FOR WHICH YOUR CHILD IS INELIGIBLE  YOUR PAYMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED BUT YOUR REGISTRATION MAY BE DENIED BY THE KNIGHTS. For instance, don’t try to place your child born in 2000 with those born in 2001.

 

Registration and Fees

Registration will open on April 16, 2014 at 10:00 am and continue to September 1, 2014 – if space permits.  Please note that for our Tyke to Minor Midget House League divisions if you register before June 30, 2014 you will be entitled to the Early Bird discount set out below but more importantly you will secure a space for your child to participate in our program.  If you wait until September, you will have to pay the full price for the program, and you may find that your child’s division is full. The Knights reserve the right to close registration early for any division which is full.

Fees for the 2014-2015 season are as follows:

Learn to Play: York Mills and Pleasantview Early Bird = $300 Regular = $300
Learn to Play – St Mike’s Arena Early Bird = $400 Regular = $400
Extended Learn to Play  (ages 8 – 14) Early Bird = $300 Regular = $300
Tyke – Minor Midget House League Early Bird = $450 Regular = $475
Midget Jr – Midget Sr House League Early Bird = $300 Regular = $300

 

Payment  and Tax Receipts

Payment for the upcoming season is to be made by credit card only, either Visa or MasterCard.  We do not accept cash or cheques. You will receive a paid invoice once you have completed online registration. This is your confirmation of acceptance into the league (subject however, to revocation by the Knights if you have registered your child in the wrong age division as noted above)

The paid invoice is also your tax receipt. Please print a copy for your records.

Duplicate copies will only be available through the website at the end of the 2014-2015 season

 

Refund Policy

Notices of withdrawal and requests for refunds must be made in writing (an email will suffice) to the Registrar at NYK Hockey P.O.

All parents should read the FAQs (frequently asked questions) to obtain the information required to register your child in the appropriate session. The FAQ that answers how the kids are assigned to the various LTP sessions will be particularly helpful.

 

Learn to Play will again be using our website  for communication this season. You will NOT receive emails or phone calls – so please check the website monthly for updates. Please bookmark that site and check back in September 2014 for up to date information, such as getting started information, coaching information and detailed schedules.

All House League Players and Parents

House League games are held on Sunday evenings. Practices are held throughout the day on Saturdays, for all divisions save Midget. We will be drafting our House League teams in September. You will receive an email/phone call from your child’s House League coach once teams have been drafted, providing you with practice times and arenas as well as our regular season schedule. Unfortunately, we cannot provide practice and game schedules for any of our teams or divisions before the team draft in September. Parents/Players will receive notice of their team assignment by the end of the first week of October.   Our House League practices and games are played out of various arenas. Arenas will be assigned to teams/divisions once our teams are drafted in September. Parents/Players cannot choose from  which arenas they will be practicing/playing..

There may be pre-season exhibition games for the Tyke/ Minor Novice division before the Thanksgiving weekend. Our coaches will contact all players in this  division should they be playing in exhibition games. All other divisions will begin the season the weekend of Oct. 18/19, 2014.  Players/parents will be contacted by their coaches by Oct 8, 2014.

 

Select Tryouts

Select tryouts for the 2014/2015 will begin April 29, 2014.  To view the 2014  tryout schedule please click here: 2014 Tryout schedule.  Any player who is registered for the 2014/2015 season is welcome to try out for his or her age appropriate Select team (by birth year). Note, you do not have to indicate on your registration form your wish to try out for Select, however, you MUST have played on a Knights team in the 2013-2014 season or be registered in our House League for our 2014-2015 season in order to try out for a Select team.

 

 

Other Registration Options

There are a few options you can choose when you register:

Playing with a friend:  We will try to place your child on a team with the friend you have identified in your registration application.  We cannot always ensure that your child is on the same team as his or her identified friend, though, especially with stronger players.  Please see our page on Balancing for details.

Goalies: In some of the younger divisions players will share or rotate through this position. Please indicate on the registration application whether or not your child is interested in being a goalie. The Tyke/Minor Novice/Novice divisions rotate goalies in all House League games. Select goalies in these divisions are not permitted to play in consecutive House League games and, when not in net, Select goalies are expected to play in a forward/defence position during the House League season,

 

Volunteers:  If you are able to volunteer, in any capacity, please let us know! Please indicate in what capacity you are able to volunteer. We need volunteers both on and off the ice. You will be contacted closer to the start of the season to clarify and confirm your position. Thank you.
