USA HOCKEY MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENT

All youth hockey programs (from development to travel) require each skater to obtain a USA Hockey Membership.   The membership provides training to coaches and referees, funds to the state governing body (WAHA), and most importantly it insures each participating skater.  You can obtain the membership before you begin the registration process below by visiting www.usahockeyregistration.com 

Otherwise you can wait until prompted during the Development Program registration process.

More information about the USA Hockey Membership and Registration can be found at http://www.usahockey.com/membership
