There are four types of new players to BMHA. Each type goes through a different registration process.

Please check carefully to ensure you are registering for the correct type of new player.

TYPE 1 - New Players - Born in Canada - if you are born in Canada, live in Burnaby and have never registered with another minor hockey association

TYPE 2 - New Players - Born Outside of Canada - if you were born outside of Canada and hold a birth certificate from another country (even if you have lived in Canada for many years), you are classified as an "international player"

TYPE 3 - Player Transfers from Other Associations (Except BWC) - if you are transferring from another minor hockey association

TYPE 4 - Player Transfers from BWC - players who are transferring from Burnaby Winter Club

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.

For any registration questions, please contact

Apply for a Hockey Canada Identification Number

Before your start the registration process you must have a HCR#

Before you can register, you MUST have a Hockey Canada Identification Number (HCR#). A HCR# is issued by Hockey Canada and can take up to 5 days to receive.

Hockey Canada will send your HCR# to the BMHA Registrar and our Registrar will contact you with your new HCR#.

After you received the HCR# for your athlete, the BMHA Registrar will contact you for the necessary birth certificate and residency documents and then you can complete your registration.

If you already have a HCR# you may skip this step and proceed to one of the registration types below.
