Information (Chedoke Minor Hockey)

Fair Play

Please see below for information about registering at Chedoke. You may also find some answers to your questions in our Parent FAQ.


Registration for the 2022/23 season will open for online payments only starting March 15.


We offer a hockey program in five non-contact House League divisions and, where numbers warrant, non-contact Select teams.

Registrations will be accepted as space permits. Registration numbers are regulated by the Hamilton Minor Hockey Council. Parents are encouraged to register early to ensure placement and to assist the league with preparing evaluations, rosters and uniforms.

Players new to Chedoke Minor Hockey must submit a copy of a birth certificate. These should be emailed to [email protected].

Players transferring to Chedoke from another league may be asked to submit a Residential Move Form. Our Registrar will contact you if this is required.

OHF Player Development Model

Starting in the 2018/19 season, a new  Novice (U9) program guided by the OHF's Player Development Model (PDM) was introduced. Shared ice, multi-station practices and modified ice games are key components of the PDM for U9 players and younger. You can read more about the PDM HERE.



The registration fee for 2022/23 is $355 for U9, $455 for U11 to U15, and $500 for U18. new.jpg

Register before August 15 and take advantage of our Payment Plan!

The payment plan consists of an initial $100 payment to reserve your spot, then the remaining balance split into two equal payments on September 1 and October 1.

U7 players (born 2016-2018)
The Hamilton Minor Hockey Council offers a city-wide hockey initiation program for this age group. Regardless of ability, all players in this age group must register in this program.

Exceptional players will be identified through an evaluation process and may be offered the opportunity to move up to a U9 division at one of the Recreational House Leagues. Any RHL will not accept registrations from players in this age group without the approval of the Initiation Program.

More information can be found on the Hamilton Initiation Program web site or by emailing [email protected].

U21 players (born 2002-2004)
The Hamilton Minor Hockey Council offers a city-wide program for this age group.

There will be 2 games per week, late Sunday and Monday nights. The season starts in October and ends with Super Saturday in March.

The program is administered by the Hamilton Minor Hockey Council.



In an effort to track goalie registrations, please register as a goalie using the Goalie Registration tabs by age group. Goalie positions will be shared if registrations exceed the number of teams in a division.

One parent/guardian of each player born in 2004 or later must complete this online course. It must be completed before November 1 or we will be unable to roster your player to a team. For more information and the course link, please see the Parents menu option.
