The Hamilton Minor Hockey Initiation Program partners with Hockey Canada to accept online registrations. This will save you time, allow you to register with a credit card (and make monthly payments), and ensure that all your information is kept up to date.

Registration is now open. Please read the information / instructions below prior to accessing the registration system via the link at the bottom of this page.

Prepare to Register:

  • If you require financial assistance, secure your funding and then contact us for details on how to register. Visit our Financial Assistance webpage to discover sources of funding.
  • You will need to know what Ward you live in. Visit the City of Hamilton website to find your ward number.

Decide on a Payment Method / Plan:

Our fee is $415 (credit card) OR $400 (eTransfer).  You may pay in full or choose an installment plan.

  • CREDIT CARDS – Monthly payment plans are available if you pay with a credit card:
Initial Payment 31-Oct 30-Nov Total
