Registration for all new players begins June 1st. The hockey season begins in September or October and runs until Spring Break. New players require some skating ability. CanSkate level 2 is recommended. Skating lessons are available at the West Van Arena or at the Vancouver Skating Club. Payment of registration fees in full is required by August 31. Players are not permitted on the ice (for games or practices) until registration fees have been paid or alternative arrangements have been made with WVMHA. Full gear, including neck guards, is mandatory. All players are required to have black helmets. Download our equipment guide for more information.
Free equipment is through the Vancouver Canucks’ “Learn to Play” program and is partly funded by WVMHA. Pending on the equipment delivery timelines, players participating in the “Learn to Play” program may start their season at a slightly later date than returning players.
Both the player code of conduct signed by the player and parent code signed by a parent is required by August 31. Submission of these documents may be made electronically through EPACT or a hard copy may be provided to the team manager. Subsequent to September 30, players are not permitted on the ice (for games or practices) until both signed code of conduct documents have been submitted.
The player medical form must be completed by August 31. Submission of the medical form may be made electronically through EPACT or a hard copy may be provided to the team safety or manager. Subsequent to September 30, players are not permitted on the ice (for games or practices) until a completed safety document has been submitted.
Additional fees may be charged by teams in connection with participation in tournaments, paid coaches, etc. Such fees are to be paid on a timely basis when communicated by the team manager. Such fees are in addition to the registration fees presented above.
All players and parents are asked to review the policies on the WVMHA web site prior to the start of the season.
