This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation and submit payment.

Important Registration Information

1. YOUTH INTRODUCTORY PROGRAM: Girls and boys born in 2008-2013 have the opportunity to come and learn how to play the most exciting sport with other kids this season. This program is designed for kids who have never played to learn the very basics of skating and how to play hockey.

2. Two teams at 10U & 12U. This year we are expecting two teams at both the 10U and 12U levels. Both age levels will have a Tier 3 and Tier 4 team within the Vermont State Hockey  league. Evaluations will occur during the first week of practices as well as an age specific scrimmage on Saturday 10/22.  While one of our main goals is to have fun, it is also important to place kids in the appropriate situations to help them thrive while pushing them to reach their fullest potential. Our board, and coaches, are aware that many kids participate in many activities throughout the season. If your player is not going to be able to make a FULL commitment to the entire season, please make the coaches aware prior to the evaluations as they will not be eligible for the Tier 3 team. For more questions please reach out to Mark at president@northshirehockey.org, or at 802-440-2950

 

3. PLAY UP REQUESTS – NHA, VSAHA, and USA Hockey strongly recommend all players play on teams based on their birth year. Any player requesting to move up a level must indicate their desire to the NHA Board during the registration period. All requests must go through an approval process that involves the NHA Board, Coaching Staff as well as the VSAHA Board. NHA will consider play up requests that meet the following criteria:
1. Roster numbers on the receiving team are 15 or less skaters
2. Roster numbers on the sending team 15 or more skaters
3. Goalies - Receiving team has 1 goalie or sending team has 3 or more goalies

(Special circumstances will be reviewed and considered by the approval committee.)

 

4. 12U Girls Team- NHA is happy to bring back a girls team! We will be phasing a girls only program back in over the next few years. The team will practice once a week and aim to have 6-8 games throughout the season. This is not a full game schedule, nor a state bound tournament team. All girls registered on NHA's 10U or 12U coed teams are eligible to roster on the girls team free of charge. If your daughter wishes to only participate on the girls team, the cost is $150. In the registration, if you are a girls only registrant, then sign up for that. If your daughter will be playing on both the coed and girls team, please register them for the coed team, and we will follow up with an email with more information on the girls team. 

 

5. 18U- The 18U team is only a split season team. This is an invite only team and will practice and play before the high school season begins. If you have any questions or know someone who should play on this team, please reach out to Mark at president@northshirehockey.org
