STARTING SEPTEMBER 1

The Miramichi Minor Hockey Club is pleased to announce the availability of online registration for the 2015-2016 hockey season.  Many parents will be familiar with the Goalline registration system, currently in use locally by both Miramichi Twins baseball and Miramichi United soccer.

Starting September 1st, online registration for the upcoming season will be available at www.MiramichiMinorHockey.ca, by cash, cheque, or credit card.  This is open to players of all ages, from 4 to 18 (if your child turns 4 in this calendar year, they can play).  Please use a laptop or desktop computer, as tablets and smartphones will NOT work with this.  Please note that this year everyone will be registering as a new player in the system, and will have access to their information in future years. 

Please note that a Medicare number is required to register online or in person, and a valid e-mail address is recommended.

The fee for the first player aged 5 to 18 in any family is $425.00, with additional family members $325.00 each.  Beginners (age 4 this calendar year) play FREE.  A late charge of $50 extra will be applied on registrations received after October 15th.

This registration will include all participants in the Miramichi Minor Hockey system.  Players registering in Baie Ste Anne, Renous, Rogersville, and Sunny Corner will be advised of how and when to register by their respective organizations.  Players and parents are encouraged to register soon in all locations, so that planning for team formation can begin.
 
For those wishing to register in person, or to pay their cash/cheque registration, the city wide Mass Registration will be held at the Golden Hawk Recreation Center on Saturday September 12th from 9 AM to 12 noon.  Miramichi Minor Hockey recommends avoiding the lineups by registering and paying at home through credit card with PayPal, the email receipt will come right away.  Cheques or money orders (no cash please) can also be mailed to Miramichi Minor Hockey Club, P.O. Box 456, Miramichi, New Brunswick, E1N 3A7, Attention Registrar.  Questions can be addressed to Dewey Somers at
