2022-2023 Hockey Winter Season Registration info
APHA 2022-23 Registration
The purpose of this document is to support members with the registration process. Hockey Manitoba and APHA makes no representation and assumes no responsibility regarding the information concerning COVID – 19 due to the constant updates. Any information on COVID – 19 should be obtained from the Provincial Health Authority.
STEP 1- Respect in Sport Program for Parents:
The parent that is registering their player (if they have never done so in previous seasons) MUST register and complete the Respect in Sport Parent Program. Please Note: This is a different program than the coach/roster Respect in Sport program and must be completed by any parent registering their child for hockey. Anyone that has completed the coach/roster RIS program, MUST complete the Parent RIS program, before you will be able to register a child for hockey in the upcoming 2022-23 season.
- How will the family accounts of the Respect in Sport Parent Program link to the HCR?
When registering for the Respect in Sport Parent Program, the parent must associate a child or children to their profile (Child Management) where an association must be selected. After a parent is certified, and assuming he/she has associated a child(ren) to their profile, the HCR record of the child is updated under Clinics and Qualifications, including the Respect in Sport certificate number. Please make sure ALL your children are linked to Hockey and Assiniboine Park Hockey! Then click on No Further Children to Add when done.
- What are the payment options for the RIS for Parents online course?
The payment is done through PayPal, by credit or debit
STEP 2 – Registering & Online Payment:
Registration for the 2022-23 season is through the Hockey Canada Registration System (HCR).
- The instructions for the new Hockey Canada Registry (HCR 3.0) are attached.
- Most of our community clubs have volunteer bonds which must be paid before any player can go on the ice for tryouts, please check with your club.
- If you are applying for subsidy, please contact Kathy firstname.lastname@example.org. All subsidy applications must be paid, filled out and completed (with the necessary documentation) or your child will not be allowed on the ice for tryouts!
- If you are trying out for AA (U13+) or AAA (U15+) you FIRST need to register with APHA
After you have registered with APHA, you also need to register for tryouts as follows:
AA Ranger tryouts online at www.apharangershockey.ca
- The HCR system will now record Players’ position (U9 A and up)
- The HCR system will now be used for Bench Staff Applications. Three options will be available – Coach, Manager, Safety
Under the Coach option you will find Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Goalie Coach and Apprentice Coach (needs
approval from Hockey Manitoba through the APHA Registrar). Manager and Safety are single options. Applicants will
register by finding/creating a Hockey Canada ID number and then selection the option they prefer. Anyone wanting to be part of the Bench staff must complete or will not be considered. Please note, this is an application only and no guarantee of placement.

- All male teams are the Winter Hawks and female teams are the Polar Bears!
- As an ongoing process, there will be a greater emphasis on coaching and player development that will follow Hockey Canada’s guidelines for hockey players that register to play hockey within the APHA. A coach mentor will be assigned to the program to support and ensure that coaches are following these guidelines. Coaching applications will be available online for the male program similar to the female program.
Welcome back to another year of hockey and great fun! As each season starts with registration it quickly follows with tryouts. The hockey directors from the six Assiniboine Park Hockey Association (APHA) community clubs have reviewed the tryouts from last year and are looking to make improvements again this year.
The APHA has again hired a independent group to perform the evaluations instead of volunteers. By hiring a group of dedicated and knowledgeable hockey staff, the APHA is hoping to provide consistent and fair player evaluations.
When you register your son or daughter for hockey you do so as part of the APHA. While you may register under your home community centre, your player is playing in a regional program. After registration, but prior to tryouts, the APHA team formation subcommittee meets to determine how many teams there will be at each age group. This decision is based on rules set by Hockey Winnipeg and by the number of children registered at each age group across the entire APHA.
Hockey Winnipeg rules require all players to compete in an association-wide tryout process at each age group. This means that all players will be pooled together from all community centres to create teams.
As you prepare your hockey players for another season, the hockey directors wish everyone the best and hope you have a positive experience during tryouts.
