Season Registration

2023-24 Season Registration is OPEN - click the link below to start!


2023-24 Season Registration is STILL OPEN!

The registration details further down have been updated for the current 2023-24 season!

We are NOT planning to change our jersey/sock vendor again this year - those costs are staying the same as last season - see the Registration Reminders below.

A 2023-24 USA Hockey registration is required for each player: No player can be registered without it. If you have already registered for next season with USA Hockey, please simply have the number handy. (There is a link to USA Hockey in the Registration as-needed for this or [CLICK HERE])

NOTE: USA Hockey updated their Registration Fees in the 2022-23 season - they remain the same this season | plus $10 or $15 (based on player's age) to our parent/state association (Land Of Enchantment Amateur Hockey Association (LOEAHA)).

Using the Chrome browser has proven the best results when registering (preferably on a desktop/laptop, can work in phone browser).  

Please work through each step in order and click the Continue button at the bottom of each page.

Be sure to read through the Registration Reminders and Miscellaneous Registration Info sections further down the page.

See the Practice Schedule at the bottom of this page!

Volunteer Registration Link

There is an expectation that one parent per player family will volunteer for an additional game role:

Scorekeeper
Timekeeper
Penalty Box Monitor
Locker Room Monitor

There is additional training tied to these - and all must register with USA Hockey (no cost for Volunteers).  The Scorekeeper & Timekeeper training will be in mid-October at the MAC (class for Scorekeeper, in the rink for Timekeeper). 

Penalty Box Monitor and Locker Room Monitor must also complete a background screening and the SafeSport certification.  All details found on the Volunteering page HERE.

In order to be rostered as a volunteer on your teams, please complete this quick Volunteer Registration:  CLICK HERE


Registration Reminders:

The updated 2023-2024 USA Hockey Age Classifications PDF can be found below.  (Remember that 6U officially falls under 8U according to USA Hockey and is NOT a separate division in their classifications...)

The Season Cost charts are also listed below for both Rec League (6U/8U up to 14U) and High School (JV Only). Due to ice and referee costs going up, the season costs did go up but got a bit lower for JV.

=============== PAYMENT OPTIONS ===============

The default payment option will be Pay in Full. There will still be the Payment Plan option to choose as well (except for Varsity as they will be PRACTICES only with us & play GAMES with Santa Fe this season).

We (NMAHA) had to recreate the 5-month payment plan in SportsEngine this season as they changed it to a 4-month plan by default. For NMAHA, it will remain FIVE total payments due on the 4th of each month (intended for October, November, December, January, & February to match our season)

The first monthly payment will be made on October 4th. Please ensure the payment method/card you use will be functional for the FULL Season. If your October 4th (or any...) payment is late, please your player(s) will not be able to go onto the ice for practices until it is completed. 

Also remember that Uniform items (jersey & socks) are due up front (either as part of the Pay in Full option or in addition to the $50 initial payment + processing if using the Payment Plan).

To complete registration payment through our secure site, please have your Visa or MasterCard information available. If your card will expire during the season and you are on the Payment Plan, please work with our Treasurer to ensure the new card is applied once you have it.

Contact nmahatreasurer@gmail.com for more information.

=============== HIGH SCHOOL ===============

For players who will be age 15 on or before 12/31/23 and moving OUT of Bantam (14U) and into High School (birth year 2008), please register as a New Player (on the Player Information page in the Season Registraton) to account for the new jerseys (2 - one white, one black) and socks (2-pair - one white, one black) that will be needed for Cougars hockey!

2nd year Bantams (birth year 2009) can play games with Junior Varsity (JV) under Rocky Mountain High School Hockey League (RMHSHL) rules, but will initially be registered at their age level for Bantam - then pay the difference up to JV if they choose to play with JV and are APPROVED by the JV head coach.  This is NOT a requirement nor is it automatic (i.e. novice 14YO skaters likely won't be approved to play JV games). Additional jerseys/socks can be obtained separately (or loaned) as-applicable.  We will work this separately through the season as-needed.

REMEMBER - NMAHA will NOT be fielding either a JV or a Varsity Team this season (ages 15+, birth years 2004-2008) due to low numbers of returning players - we've graduated ~17 players over the past two seasons!

Returning JV and Varsity-aged players will PRACTICE with our Bantams weekly (hence the lower cost) and MUST register with Santa Fe for GAMES this season (at a reduced cost too, if paid in full).  

CLICK HERE to do so once it is open.

If there are any questions, please reach out to our VP of High School, Kelly Boyles at nmaha.hs.hockey@gmail.com prior to completing your registration

=============== UNIFORMS ===============

There are no significant changes for Mini-Mite (6U)/Mite (8U) thru Bantam (14U) - red jerseys/socks still in playable condition will be used.  If your returning player does need a new game jersey and/or game socks due to size and/or wear, please include this in your registration (cost is still $55 for the jersey, $30 per pair of socks).  Additional game socks will still be a selectable option as well ($30/pair).

For High School (JV) only, new game jerseys and socks will still require two of each (2 jerseys - one light, one dark; 2 pairs of socks (light/dark)).  There will be options to get a single jersey if you need to replace one of the jerseys & not both this season.

Thank you for your continued support for our program!

2023-24 There will NOT be High School level teams for NMAHA this season**

Due by Oct 1st
Junior Varsity/JV*** (born 2008 & Older) $200 (PRACTICES ONLY)
Varsity**** (born 2006 & older) - PRACTICES ONLY $200 (PRACTICES ONLY)

Due to low numbers, our High School aged players will play with Santa Fe This Season

**Please note - There could still be voluntary fundraising at the team level (to help cover tournament costs, end-of-season party costs, etc.). 

*** Also note that only 2nd year Bantams (8th Grade) are ELEGIBLE to play games with JV (14-16 years old) and must also pay the season fee at the higher level (but CANNOT play Varsity which is ONLY 9th Grade and up). Please work with our treasurer if this is the case for your player(s).

**** Note that due to low numbers, NMAHA will only field a JV team this season for GAMES.  We are partnering with Sante Fe for any 17-18 year old high school players to play games with them (at a reduced registration cost with them if paid in full), but practice - and share their insights & wisdom - with our JV/Bantams locally at a reduced cost this season. (Combined cost of practice with us AND games with SF is approximately the same as our JV cost.)
