I registered. What's next? (Markham Waxers)

PrintI registered. What's next?

You’ve completed online registration for the 2024-2025 hockey season with the Markham Waxers House League. So, what’s next?

Parent Respect in Sport

If you are new to hockey, you must complete Parent Respect in Sport (RIS) to complete the registration process. Your child cannot participate in our program until Parent RIS is completed.

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, please add the child to your Respect in Sport account by way of the Respect in Sport program’s Child Management tab.

If you have taken the program for another sport such as soccer or baseball, transfer your certification by logging into the Respect in Sport system and entering your certification number on the registration page.

Learn more about the Parent Respect in Sport program.

Teammate Requests

The Waxers allow one teammate request per player. We do not accept coach requests. Please read through the conditions and submit the Teammate Request form no later than September 1. We will not consider requests submitted after that date, so please don't ask.

Refer a Friend Program

Registered Markham Waxers players who refer a friend to play Waxers House League during the 2024-2025 season are entitled to a $50 discount on their hockey fees for the season. Read the program rules. Please ensure you are familiar with them before applying. Deadline to apply to the program is September 1, 2024.

First Shift / Learn to Play Registration Discount

The Waxers offer the players who attended a Markham First Shift or Learn to Play program and have never registered for house league with any association a $75 discount on their registration fees the first time they register. Please complete this form to apply for the discount. The credit card you use to register will be refunded $75 in November 2024.

Rookie Camp

For players who are new to hockey, we offer our Rookie Camp prior to the start of the season. This year’s camp dates will be set in mid-August. Registration will open on our website then.

Team Assignments

You will receive an email in early September with your child’s evaluation team number and schedule. Please complete the Medical Information Form and bring it to your first session.

Players will receive a jersey for their use during the evaluation period, but will need to provide their own socks. Once all teams are balanced, players in the U8 divisions and older will choose their numbers. Season jerseys will be printed with names and numbers. Jerseys and socks will be distributed in early November.

Season Start

The season starts in mid to late September depending on our ice allocation from the City of Markham and the opening dates of the Markham arenas. We’ll announce details on our website when a more specific date becomes available.

In the U7 through U9 divisions, we start the season with player development. U11 through U21 begin the season with two weekends of evaluation games. Players will skate in full gear while our coaches evaluate the players. We use the results of those evaluations to create balanced teams for the season.

After the evaluation games, the coaches will meet and make any changes necessary to the teams to balance them for the season. We’ll then play two to three exhibition games to ensure we have the teams as balanced as possible.

The regular season will begin in November.


Schedules will be finalized after registration closes on August 31 and uploaded to the website during the first week of September.
