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 2018/19 season will open for online payments only starting March 10. Register online during the month of March to take advantage of a discount offered during this time only!


We offer a hockey program in six 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.

New OHF Player Development Model

For the 2018/19 season, there will be a split in the Novice age group. A new Minor Novice program guided by the OHF's Player Development Model (PDM) will be offered specific to seven year-olds (players born in 2011). The traditional structure will remain intact for eight year-olds (players born in 2010) for the upcoming season.

Starting in 2019/20, programming for all Novice-aged players will be guided by the PDM.

Shared ice, multi-station practices and modified ice games are key components of the PDM for Novice-aged players and younger. You can read the details of these changes HERE.


The registration fee for 2018/19 is $450.

During March, families can take advantage of an early registration discount of $20 which is available via online registrations only.

During March and April, families have the option of paying on a payment plan. The payment plan is available via online registrations only.

In March, the payment plan consists of a first payment of $130 followed by 3 equal payments of $100 charged to your credit card on the 15th of each following month.

In April, the payment plan consists of a first payment of $150 followed by 2 equal payments of $150 charged to your credit card on the 15th of each following month.

Starting May 1st, full payment of $450 is required and there is no payment plan available.
