Here is what you need to know before you register:

Are You Ready to Register?

If you are ready to register, you must first determine if you live within the VMHA Boundary.  If you are within the outlined boundary, you may register with VMHA.

All parents must provide the required forms and supporting documentation and email them to  registrar@vmha.com   Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Hockey Access Fund

The VMHA Hockey Access Fund was created in conjunction with the Britannia Community Centre to provide opportunity to those under the age of 18 without adequate financial means, the ability to access funds allowing them to participate in organized hockey within the Vancouver Minor Hockey Association. VMHA and Britannia believe strongly in the power of team sports as important tools in helping set positive goals, create bonds, build community and learn valuable life skills. We believe that any child with a desire to play and learn should be given the chance to play alongside their school friends or neighbours. Our Mission is to create, maintain and disburse from a self-perpetuating fund designed to improve inclusion within the VMHA among financially challenged families by helping lower those financial barriers.

New Players Transferring from a Minor Hockey Association That Are Born in Canada Or Have Canadian Citizenship:

 

Players Born Outside of Canada


Permanent Residents

We are required to determine the residence of the parent(s) of players born outside of Canada.  In doing so, it must be determined that the parent(s) are more than temporary residents of B.C. if, the player is to be deemed eligible to participate on a team which registers on Hockey Canada Registration Certificates.

Canadian Citizenship Card-Passport/Landed Immigrant/Permanent Resident Status
In these cases, it will have to be determined that the parent(s) are more than just temporary residents of B.C.  The parents must provide proof of Permanent Resident Status (or documentation proving that Permanent Residence status is in process).  If BC Hockey/Hockey Canada determines that the parent(s) are permanent residents of Canada, the player may be approved to play at all levels.  If not, the player will be approved to play recreational “C” hockey only.
