Player Registration Instructions and Information

Player Registration Instructions

These instructions are for registering Players for the Beginner, Pony/6U, Empire House (RWB/8U thru Midget/18U), Girls and Travel Programs/Teams.

ALWAYS Use Your Child's LEGAL NAME when registering with USA Hockey and WYHA.  This is the name shown on their birth certificate.

1.) Create a WYHA CrossBar Account (only the parent registering your child needs an account):
      a.) Click on the Sign Up Icon in the upper left hand corner
      b.) Enter your 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 and phone after clicking on the link on the verification email.

2.) Register your child as an ICE PLAYER with USA Hockey:
      a.) Go to 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.
      b.) On the drop down menu, click on the PROGRAM you wish to register your child for (see info below on Programs)
      c.) Read thru the information on the page, then click on the REGISTER button

      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 signing up for an online payment plan.

NOTE: Parents - if you have more than one child and they play in different divisions (for example, one is being registered for Empire House and one for Travel), you must register the Travel player at the registration link under the TRAVEL program.  The Empire House player must be registered under the Empire House program.  Registration order is NOT important and you will be offered the 2nd child discount option for whichever child is registered 2nd!
There is a Registration Link under the Beginner, Pony, Empire House, Travel and Girls Programs. It is VERY important that you register your child using the Registration Link for the Program your child will be playing for. Registering your child for the wrong program will result in an incorrect fee (often an OVERpayment) and if your child is a Pony or Empire House player, he/she will not get to choose a uniform size or number!

2018-19 Programs:

     a.) TRAVEL:  Select this Program if your child has been offered a position on a WYHA Travel Team

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.

Midget Travel payment plans require payments in June, 7/30, 8/30 and 9/30. Supplemental Programs (RWB & Girls 12U) may also offer short payment plans.
D.) PAYMENT BY CHECK: If you wish to pay by check, please contact the Registrar at 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: offers several discounts which are applied based on the questions. Discounts offered include:
        1. Registration and payment by June 30 ($50 discount)
        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).
