2020-23 Registration Requirements

We hope you are enjoying your summer! Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about registering for the 2022-23 hockey season. USA Hockey registration and background screening for the season is now open. Complete the annual required steps early!

Registration for STMA/NWC TRAVEL HOCKEY will be open from July 15, 2022 to August 15, 2022. 

Mite/8U Registration will open on July 15, 2022 and remain open through early September.

As a part of the registration process this coming year, all families will be required to complete the following steps to be in compliance with USA Hockey, MN Hockey and STMAYHA requirements: 

1. All skaters, coaches and parents/guardians must register with USA Hockey (OPEN NOW at https://www.usahockey.com)

2.All coaches and parents must complete a USA Hockey Background check every 2 years and 
submit the results each year. If you have never completed a background study or it has been two years since your last one, you will need to complete a new screening here: https://www.usahockey.com/backgroundscreen. If you completed your background check last year, you can access the results from the same link. Please save pdf, jpeg or screenshot of your results page as this will be needed to complete registration.

3. All coaches and parents must complete SafeSport (OPEN NOW at https://www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining)

4. All players must be registered with STMAYHA (OPENS JULY 15, 2022!) 

5. All parents/guardians registered with STMAYHA (OPENS JULY 15, 2022!)

Please take time to get the necessary requirements ready so you can be ready when registration opens. In addition to the above process, each new skater to our association will need to submit a copy of their birth certificate.  

A $30 deposit will be due upon registration and there will be options to either pay in full or make monthly installment payments. A late fee will be assessed for any late TRAVEL registrations. The cost of hockey is still being planned by our finance committee and will be communicated prior to registration opening. In addition to the cost of hockey, each family is responsible to submit a USA Hockey Background Screen for every parent/guardian in the skater's household. The cost of the background screen is $30 per parent/guardian.

Thank you,
