Player Registration Instructions and Information
These instructions are for registering Players for the Beginner, Pony/6U, Empire House (RWB/8U thru Midget/18U plus Squirt/10U Red), Girls (16u & 19U plus 12U Supplemental) and Travel Teams (11U and up).
Empire House RWB/8U is CLOSED! All 5 RWB teams are full. Please contact the House Director at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will help you find a spot at another organization for your 8U child. Note that our Pony/6U (birthyear 2012 & 2013) teams are still open. The Beginner Program is also OPEN for registration for all players from ages 4 to 12.
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 email@example.com or call 585-586-1773 When Registration links are open, there will be a ORANGE button labelled REGISTER on the applicable Program page. If a program closes, this link will be turned off and/or 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 2018-19, 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.) Empire House, Girls 16U/19U and Travel ONLY: If you paid the $150 at Tryouts/Evals in March/April -OR- by check/online by June 1, please select the OPTION "We did pay the $150 at Tryouts/Evals", otherwise $150 will be added to the amount to be paid. All prices shown assume the $150 was paid at Tryouts/Evals and the $150 was already subtracted from the prices shown! All Girls registering for the Girls 12U team should ALWAYS select "the $150 was PAID" to avoid having $150 added to their fee!

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: 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. Payment in Full at Registration ($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 the family discount given website programming limitations on the number of discount options). Coaches will be requiring players to play this position (may skate out if two Goalies on the team) 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 at the 9U and up level are welcome to attend the Goalie Clinics offered by WYHA (no cost).
