Player Registration Instructions
These instructions are for registering Players for the Beginner, Pony/6U, Empire House (RWB/8U thru Midget/18U), Girls (14u & 16U/19U) and Travel Teams (9U thru 18U). Bantam Red players will receive instructions & a link to register with from their Head Coach or Manager.
PLEASE READ BEFORE STARTING REGISTRATION:
1.) ALWAYS Use Your Child's LEGAL NAME when registering with USA Hockey and WYHA. This is the name shown on their birth certificate or passport. An incorrect name will disable a player's birth date verification thus they can not play in Games until corrected!
2.) For issues or questions about Registration, please email Jeanne Barreca, WYHA Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 585-586-1773 When Registration links are open, there will be a button labelled REGISTER on the right hand side of the applicable Program page. If a program closes, this link will be turned off and a notice posted on the Program page!
3.) Register under the correct Program (Beginner, Pony, Empire House, Travel & Girls). If your children will play in different Programs for 2019-20, you must complete the first child's registration, then go to the PROGRAM page for the other Program and utilize the registration link at that webpage. Failure to do so will result in an incorrect fee and hassles to get fees and other information corrected.
4.) FAMILY DISCOUNT NOTICE: The Family Discount is ONLY available for the 2nd/3rd/etc child registered in a family. If the Family Discount is claimed for the 1st child, then your family will be billed for $50 for the 1st child registered.
5.) $150 Paid at Tryouts or Evals: Empire House, Girls 14U/19U and Travel ONLY - Because there were no Tryouts or Evals in March/April due to the NY PAUSE, no one paid the $150 deposit for 2020-21.
1.) Create a WYHA Website Account:
NOTE: For 2019-20, families MUST establish a NEW account if they were NOT members of WYHA in 2018-19. If your player was a member of WYHA in 2018-19 (or paid the $150 online for Tryouts/Evals), your family will already have an account and can SKIP this step!
a.) Click on the Sign Up Icon in the upper left hand corner
b.) Enter your (the parent's) email and a password (we recommend you write them down in a secure location) and CLICK on the SIGN UP button
c.) Follow the instructions to verify your email.
d.) Type in your name (i.e. the parents name NOT the player's name) and phone after clicking on the link on the verification email. If the parent is paying, the account should be in the parent's name even if your child is not a minor or will turn 18 during the season. All coach's, manager's and team staff need an account in their own name to be placed on the team website.
2.) Register your child as an ICE PLAYER with USA Hockey:
Go to https://membership.usahockey.com/ and follow the instructions
NOTE: 6U players are FREE!
3.) Register with WYHA and pay:
a.) Go to the PROGRAMS tab at the top of the WYHA website. If you have more than one child to register and they will be playing in different Programs, you must complete one child and then go to the program webpage the second child will be enrolled in. If you are unsure about which Program to register your child for, please see the brief descriptions below.
b.) On the drop down menu, click on the PROGRAM you wish to register your child for
c.) Read thru the information on the webpage, then click on the REGISTER link. Note that the REGISTER link can ONLY be used to register players for the PROGRAM described on the page.
d.) Click on NEW PLAYER or select the child if already listed. If selecting NEW PLAYER, enter the name of the player.
e.) Complete the registration by entering the USA Hockey Confirmation number, address info and answering the questions on ALL the pages. Movement from page to page is by the buttons in YELLOW/ORANGE.
f.) Complete the registration by paying with a credit card or by signing up for an online payment plan.
2020-21 Programs: More Info is available on each webpage along with the registration link!
TRAVEL: Select this Program if your child has been offered a position on a WYHA Travel Team 9U to 18U
1.) Select GIRLS if your daughter has been offered a position on the WYHA Girls 14U or 19U team.
2.) Girls playing on the Girls 12U Supplemental Team should register for their primary team first (Empire House or Travel), then go to the Girls Program and register for the Girls 12U Supplemental Team.
1.) Select this Program to register your child for the Empire House Program - RWB/8U thru Midget/18U. Note your child should have completed either one full year of the Beginner Program or other Learn to Skate Program or the Pony Program before registering for this Program. Players must be age 7 or older, or have completed one year in the Pony Program. Advanced Skating Skills are required to register for the 14U or 18U Teams.
2.) BANTAM/14U RED: If your child was selected for this team, then select the EMPIRE HOUSE Program and then select the pricing option for BANTAM RED. This pricing will open in July.
PONY/6U: Open to players with a birth date in 2013 or 2014 who have completed at least one full session of Beginners or other Learn to Skate Program
BEGINNERS: This Program is for players with limited or no skating experience, ages 4 and up. Note we recommend 3 year olds complete a Learn to Skate Program (similar to Webster Skating School). All players should be ready to go out on the ice without a parent.
CAMPS, CLINICS and SUPPLEMENTAL: This program allows players to sign up for Clinics and Camps run by WYHA. These are opportunities for additional ice time and to learn specific skills. Players participating must be registered with WYHA.
A.) USA Hockey Registration is required. This is free for birth years 2013 and younger.
B.) Pricing shown for the Empire House, Travel & Girls Programs assume payment of $150 at Travel/Girls tryouts or at Empire House Evals. If this 1st payment was not made, then this can be paid as part of the Registration. Most Travel, Girls and Empire House players paid the $150 at Tryouts or Evals.
C.) PAYMENT PLANS: WYHA does offer payment plans for all Program except Beginners. In most cases, the payment plans require a first payment in June, then payments on 7/30, 8/30, 9/30, 10/30 and 11/30. Midget Travel payment plans require payments in June, 7/30, 8/30 and 9/30. Clinics, Supplemental Programs (RWB & Girls 12U) & Beginners also do not offer payment plans.
D.) PAYMENT BY CHECK: If you wish to pay by check, please contact the Registrar at email@example.com to have a special link generated to register your child. Parents will be expected to pay using the same terms as parents paying online. Please contact the Registrar at least 48 hours before the 6/30 and 7/31 deadlines so the link can be generated.
E.) WYHA Discounts & Fees: offers several discounts which are automatically applied based on the questions. Discounts include:
1. Registration and payment by June 30 ($50 discount) ONLY AVAILABLE FOR HOUSE, PONY, GIRLS & TRAVEL
2. Parents who pay in full are not charged the Payment Plan fee ($25).
3. Family Discount for the 2nd/3rd/etc. child registered at WYHA (we do check every registration selecting this option and will bill families who select this option for the 1st child registered)
4. Goalie Discount of 20% for players at 9U and older (note Goalies are not eligible for other discounts given website programming limitations on the number of discount options). Coaches will be requiring players to play this position (may skate out for 1/2 of the games if the team has two Goalies) if registered using this option. 8U players are not eligible for the Goalie discount as USA Hockey encourages all players to try the Goalie position and full time Goalies are not recommended. 8U players interested in playing Goalie are welcome to attend the Goalie Clinics offered by WYHA.
5. Late Registration Fee ($50) for registrations after 7/31. This fee does not apply to the Beginner & Pony programs but it is recommended that players be registered for these programs as early as possible as both Programs have filled up quickly in past seasons.
