In an ongoing effort to foster as a safe and enjoyable environment for all our players, Hockey Canada and the Alliance have mandated that one parent from each family complete the RESPECT IN SPORT - PARENT online course as a condition of the child's registration and participation in hockey.  This course is $12 and takes approximately one hour to complete.  This course is non-recurring and is only required to be completed once.

NOTE:
Respect in Sport - Activity Leader, is the course required for Coaches, Asst. Coaches, Trainers, Bench Staff, On Ice Helpers, Managers, On and Off Ice Officials and Volunteers.  The Activity Leader course DOES NOT count towards the required Respect In Sport - Parent. 


NEW TO HOCKEY?  THIS COURSE MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO REGISTRATION.  UPON COMPLETION OF THIS COURSE, YOUR PLAYERS PROFILE WILL BE CREATED WITHIN HOCKEY CANADA AND THEREFORE ALLOWING YOU TO REGISTER FOR THE SEASON.


When registering a new participant, you must update your Respect In Sport profile with that new participant.  See the FAQ for information on how to complete this task.

  Foundations

**All registrations August 21 and after will be automatically waitlisted.  Availability will be determined by our Volunteer Directors in consultation with the Registrar**

SHA has limited spots per division and therefore when a division fills, you will be placed on a waitlist.  SHA volunteers work very hard to ensure that all participants are placed on a team and able to participate in the upcoming season.

All players must pay the Registration Costs listed above in FULL prior to the beginning of the season (SEPTEMBER 1st DEADLINE).  No participant will be allowed on the ice for ANY SHA event until payment is received.  This includes evaluation skates and tryouts.

SHA accepts payment via credit card at the time of online registration.  We also accept payment via etransfer.  All etransfers are to be sent to [email protected] and MUST include REGISTRATION, Players Name and Date of Birth in the memo portion.  Without this information, your payment WILL NOT be applied to your players account.

SHA offers a payment plan which will be an available option at the time of online registration.  If you choose this option, your credit card will be charged on the agreed upon dates - all is clearly laid out for you at the time of registration.  If you have chosen to pay via etransfer, the responsibility lies with you to ensure payments are made on the agreed upon dates - again all is clearly laid out for you at the time of registration. Payment dates are June 20th, July 20th and August 20th

 Those players wishing to tryout for U8MD, U9MD and U18, Tryouts will be hosted in the Fall.  Please watch the SHA Website for updates regarding this registration.

Sarnia Hockey Association Refund Guidelines

1.  All refunds will be dealt with by both the Treasurer and Registrar on a case-by-case bases.

2.  All refunds will be subject to a Sarnia Hockey Association Processing Fee. This processing fee is subject to change and will be decided by the Treasurer based on current banking fees

3.  All refunds requested after the season has begun or after the player has participated in an evaluation skate or other on ice activity will be subject to a Hockey Canada Membership Surcharge.  This surcharge is subject to change and based on the current Membership Fees set out by Hockey Canada, the OHF and Alliance Hockey

4.  Refunds requested once the season has begun will also be subject to a fee reduction based on how many weeks into the season we are.  This reduction will be calculated by the Treasurer and Registrar and based on the Basic Registration rate and 25 weeks of hockey.

5.  Refunds may be subject to a Jersey Surcharge.

6.  NO REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED AFTER THE JANUARY 10th ROSTER DEADLINE

7.  Representative player refunds may be subject to a team fee assessment.  This decision will be made by the Treasurer and Vice Chair of Representative Hockey.

8.  If registration was paid by credit card, refunds will processed back to the credit card used at the time of registration.  This process takes 3-10 business days.

9.  If registration was paid by E-transfer, an E-transfer refund will be issued to the email address associated to the players profile.  E-transfer refunds will be issued within 3-5 days of confirmation of a player withdraw by the Registrar.

10.  If a refund is requested via cheque, the cheque will be issued to the name of the parent/guardian who registered the player.  Cheques will be mailed to the address on the players profile.  In the event that you have moved and not previously notified Sarnia Hockey Association of said move, you will be subject to a $50 stop payment and cheque reissue fee

In light of the current and ever changing Covid Restrictions, should the Province of Ontario, Hockey Canada, the OHF, Alliance Hockey or the City of Sarnia, cancel our season, refunds will not be subject to the Sarnia Hockey Association Processing Fee and will be prorated based on where we are in the season.
