Registration for the 2019-2020 Season

 

Returning players are once again able to be registered with us by specified dates. (See below) If you do not register on one of these dates and submit payment and any needed documentation, you will run the risk of having to wait in line on the open registration date or even worse, not get registered. 

We will once again comprise the teams of Point Edward residents first and then returning players based on their years of service.  If a team has more registrants than spots, and the players have the same number of years of service, we will impose the lottery option.  If your child is to be involved in this, we will notify you prior to the lottery so you may attend if you wish.  The lottery will be held prior to the open registrations on June 10, and will be done live on our Facebook feed.  We will not know who makes the final roster or who potentially moves off the waitlist until all travel tryouts are completed and any players move on if that is the case.  We will post final rosters on our website, names only, and you will be able to see the team at that time. 


Only those involved in the lottery will be notified about this situation.  If you are not informed that your child is involved in the lottery or told that they are on the waitlist, they are currently on the proposed roster.

We strongly recommend that if you are not sure you will be on a Blackhawk roster, registering in another centre.  We would not want anyone to miss out on an entire hockey season because they were waiting to find out if they make it on one of our teams.  There are deadlines for everything, but if you are not successful at acquiring a spot on our rosters there will be a full refund of any monies paid. 

Just to clarify, you must be a Point Edward resident by the May 30, 2019 deadline to be eligible to pay the Point Edward fee.  If you own a residential property in Point Edward and can provide documentation for this, you can register along with the Point Edward residents and pay the same registration fees.

You will need to bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate with you to registration.  We need this to upload into the OMHA site in order to roster them on a team.  Your registration will not be complete without this item.  It will need to be attached to your registration form and left with us so please do not simply bring the original, we will need a copy that we can keep.

Once again, there will be no fundraising this year, so no need to write two separate cheques.

 

One last note, and this is in regards to an OMHA policy that has been passed and will affect all hockey programs including ours.  Effective August 31, 2014, in addition to Team Officials, the OMHA requires all On-Ice Volunteers, On-Ice Officials and Parents to take the appropriate “Respect “education.  We are providing the link to this for you.  At least one parent or guardian in every household will need to do this.  It must be completed online and proof of completion is a requirement for participation in our program.  It will be at your cost and we will need proof that you completed it before your child’s name can be put on the official roster.  Anyone new to our program will need to complete this, but if you completed this since the 2014 implementation, there is no need to do it again.  Once again, I would like to stress that the cost associated with this is your responsibility and is in addition to any registration costs you pay.  Please visit the OMHA website for further details as they have an abundance of information about this as well as the costs. 

*Proof of this being completed for anyone new to our program must be sent to us by August 1, 2019.  If it s not received you will be notified that you will be in non-compliance and risk losing your spot on the team your child was registered for.  If you have completed this for another child in your family, you can log into your account for this program and add the new player’s name.  If you have completed this program through Alliance, you can also log into your account and request that it be switched over to be recognized by OMHA.

We have also put a spot on the registration form that asks everyone to read the Policies and Procedures we have posted on our website.  This will be something we refer to should we have to take any disciplinary action over the course of the season.  Should you have any questions or concerns about anything in relation to registering for the upcoming season, please email one of the three hockey convenors.  Our email addresses are located on the website.

We hope that the majority of you will find a place in the Point Edward program for the upcoming season and wish those moving on either because of age or making a travel team all the best.  We also know that due to numbers of players to be rostered for each level, some players may have to go to other centres for the 2019 – 2020 season.  This is something that we have no control over and truly wish we could keep everyone in our program that wants to play here.  We also wish you the best in your future hockey endeavours and hope that you enjoyed the time you spent as a Blackhawk.

 

Have a great summer, and hopefully we will see most of you back at the rink in October.
