NEW PLAYERS - REGISTRATION
WELCOME TO BURNABY MINOR HOCKEY!
All new player registration for Burnaby Minor Hockey Association is done in person. The governing bodies (Hockey Canada, BC Hockey, Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association) require us to confirm the validity of the required registration documents.
Please attend one of our in-person registration sessions during the summer (typically during the month of July). Once our in-person sessions have been completed, you will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is space available.
Please be sure to read all requirements listed below carefully.
Register early to avoid being placed on a wait list! All registrations will be on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis. Registrations are subject to available space in each age division, and it may be necessary to limit player and goaltender registration numbers.

Players Transferring to BMHA from other associations
If you are a new player to BMHA, but are transferring from another Association, you will need to provide the above proof of identity and residence as well as the Player Registration Form and BMHA Registration Question Form (both mentioned above), and the Player Movement Form (found here). The Player Movement Form must be completed and signed by the old Association and both parents (even if the player only lives with one), and by the player if they are entering the Atom or older divisions. As well, it is important to review PCAHA's Residential Qualification Information. There will also be a player movement fee of $15.

Player movements between Burnaby Minor (BMHA) and Burnaby Winter Club (BWC) Minor Hockey only require the Player Movement Form (mentioned in the above paragraph) and the BMHA Registration Question Form (found here), provided the player resides in Burnaby. No additional paperwork is required. These transfers are subject to a Special Player Movement fee of $75. Deadline is September 1, 2019.
