New to Hockey 9 years or older (Markham Waxers)

PrintNew to Hockey 9 years or older

You have reached this page because you indicated that the Player you are registering is brand new to hockey and has never played in any organized league anywhere. If the player has played in an organized league before, please email the Waxers office.


Registering for hockey the first time involves a few additional steps. If your child is brand new to organized hockey and is or will be 9 years of age or older by December 31, you will need to:

  1. Request the Waxers create a Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) Player Profile for your child

  2. Complete the Parent Respect In Sport Course

  3. Complete the online Registration and Payment Process

Next year it will be easier. You will only need to complete the third step to get registered! It is not a difficult process—just follow the steps below.

Step One: Complete the Profile Request Form

Please complete the New Player Profile Request Form. This form and the documentation it requires will be used to create your Player Profile in the Hockey Canada Registry (HCR) and to get you ready for the next steps. You will receive an email when this is complete along with detailed instructions on how to proceed. Be patient! We turn around these requests as quickly as we can, but it can take up to seven days to get your profile created.

Step Two: Complete the Parent Respect In Sport Course

After step one is completed and your child has a HCR Player Profile, you can complete the Parent Respect In Sport course. This course, mandated by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association, must be completed before your child can step on the ice.

The course has a one-time cost of $12. This fee is set by the OMHA and is subject to change.

You only need to take the program once—it does not expire. If you are registering a child for the first time but have taken the program for another child, remember to add the child to your Respect in Sport account by way of their Child Management tab after you register them for the first time. If you have taken the program for another sport such as soccer or baseball, you can transfer your certification by logging into the system and entering your certification number on the registration page.

Do not complete the Parent Respect in Sport course until directed to do so by the Waxers admin—your child's HCR Player Profile must be set up before you take it for the first time.

Step Three: Complete the Hockey Canada Online Registration

Once you pass the Parent Respect In Sport course you will be ready to complete the registration! You will receive an email with instructions on how to complete player registration in the Hockey Canada Registry system. This is the point where payment for your registration will also need to be completed, during check out. Waxers accept only credit cards for payment.

Special Requests

The Markham Waxers House League allows each player to make one special request to play with a friend.

Siblings in the same division will automatically be placed on the same team unless we are notified otherwise. However, we still ask the parents to complete a special request form to ensure we correctly identify sibling pairs.

To make a special request, complete our Waxers House League Special Request Form and submit it to the office by the deadline . Forms received after the deadline will not be considered, so please do not ask.

  • The Waxers may not be able to accommodate all special requests received.
  • The primary consideration when forming teams is balancing the teams in a division, not special requests.
  • Requests for coaches will not be considered.
  • In order to be considered, a completed form must be completed in full by both families and signed.
  • The fully completed and originally signed form must be scanned and emailed to [email protected] or delivered to the Waxers office, located in Mt. Joy Community Centre, 6140 16th Avenue, Markham, ON L3P 3K8.
  • The Waxers will not notify you directly of the outcome of your special request.
