This will be the seventh year CDMHA utilizes online registration with Hockey Canada. If you have never registered online with Hockey Canada you will create an account by clicking on the "Online Registration" link and then on the homepage of the registration site choose; "If you have not registered any participants in the past with this system, you must create an account". Your email address and a password is all that is needed to create your account. Then just choose the player you are registering if they have been with CDMHA in the past as they will exist in the system. The Hockey Canada ID is not required.

The account is a family account; you only need one account to register as many family members as you wish.  Just add registrants to your cart before checking out.

If you have utilized Hockey Canada's online registration in the past you may use the same account to register but you must use the Hockey Canada link above which is specific to CDMHA.

If the player being registered still exists in a different association, an error message will occur. If this happens contact the CDMHA Registrar Michael Kichinko and a transfer will be initiated.

If you forgot your password please use the Password Recovery feature on the login page to recover it.


Discovery, Initiation & Minor Novice (Previously Tyke) Levels

O.H.F. Introduction to Hockey 8 and Under.pdf

Discovery/Initiation Level
All 3, 4, 5 and 6 year old players (2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016) must register at the discovery/initiation level.  Based on evaluations, some players may be moved up to the Minor Novice program.  In the event a player is moved up from Initiation to Minor Novice, the difference in registration fees will be required to be paid to CDMHA.

Minor Novice (Previously Tyke) Level: 
All 7 year old players (2012) must register at the Minor Novice level.  Based on evaluations, some players may be moved down to the Initiation program...In the event a player is moved down from Minor Novice (Previously Tyke) to Initiation, the difference in registration fees will be refunded by CDMHA.

Starting in the 2019-2020 season, Hockey Canada has mandated players 8-years-old and under will participate in modified-ice games, which includes cross-ice or half-ice. To continue the player progression for young athletes already in modified-ice programming, the OHF will expand its modified-ice programming in 2018-2019 season and advance 2011-born players from cross-ice to half-ice games. The focus in practices will remain station-based.

Programming Below Novice Transition for 2018-19 Season

In 2019-2020, as per the Hockey Canada modified-ice mandate, those same players start the season playing half-ice games and end it with full-ice games.

“The OHF Board of Directors unanimously supported this progression, as developed by the Executive and Technical Directors of its Members,” said Tony Foresi, OHF President. “To be leaders in the game, we have to look beyond today and realize the significance of supporting age-appropriate programming. The science is there, the results are there and now we are moving the game there.”

“Station-based practices, small area games, lightweight blue pucks and age-appropriate ice size ensure players are engaged and have the right start in their hockey experience,” said OMHA Executive Director Ian Taylor. “Scaling the game to match the age group allows young players the opportunity for more puck-touches which promotes greater opportunity for skill-development in puck-handling, shooting, skating, coordination and decision-making.”

Programming Below Novice Transition for 2019-20 Season

In conjunction with its Members, the OHF is in the process of producing materials to support minor hockey associations and clubs as they work through this change.

“We know change is never easy, but we want to give our administrators, coaches, parents and, most of all, the players the best experience we can,” said Phillip McKee, OHF Executive Director. “The OHF and its Members will be there to support the program in anyway needed.”

“The successful development of basic skills will impact these players for the rest of their hockey careers.”

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association continues to work closely with our associations and our partners in hockey to deliver resources and best practices for coaches and administrators to create the best possible programming at this pivotal stage in the player development pathway.
