Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association has gone with a totally online registration. Our Registrar does not work out of our office so in order to be registered it is imperative that you follow these steps. You must have a credit card to register - if you do not have one you can buy reloadable ones through Safeway or Canada Post. VISA/DEBIT cards do not work. ALL registration is online for LMHA.
REMEMBER TO REGISTER PRIOR TO JUNE 30th TO GET THE EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT
Your first step is to verify that your Respect in Sport Certificate is current and not expired. It must be renewed every 4 years. To check this go to this link and login CLICK HERE
Then you can proceed to register online for minor hockey. Log in to the registry through this link CLICK HERE
You enter your child’s information as the participant. If it does not pop up with a record at the bottom you need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org 403-892-7816 to verify the child’s information as there could be a problem with our database, or the child's record could be in another association.
You then select the division based upon your child's birth year. Proceed to answer all the questions and remember DO NOT put in any player's cell phone or email address, we only want the parent contact information. Our database requires two parents so if there is only one just enter the contact information twice. Do this for each of your children, and if you intend to help by being a coach, assistant coach, manager or on ice helper register yourself as well. Then go to CHECK OUT and enter your credit card information and choose if you want to pay in full or use the payment plan.
If you choose payment plan it charges $125 the day you register for your deposit and then splits the balance equally over the term of the payment plan.
Example - registering on May 15th
Fees = $600 Payments = $125 May 15th, $121 June 1, $120 July 1, $1221 August 1 and $121 September 1.
