  •  Cost of Ice Purchases
  •  Insurance

For your convenience, you will be able to pay with VISA or MasterCard On-Line. 

Payment options are available at time of registration.  If members require a payment option, it is available in the registration process.

Should members fail to pay in full or select a payment option at registration, players will be de-registered until all outstanding amounts have been paid in full or options are selected.  In addition, all ice privileges will be suspended until arrangements are made to replace outstanding fees.

Outstanding fees must be replaced in CASH/CERTIFIED CHEQUE OR MONEY ORDER before the player is allowed on the ice.


Registration Fee and Refunds:     

a.       The Executive shall set registrations fees for the following hockey season.  Registration procedures will be organized and coordinated by the Association Registrar. If a player, due to late registration, has missed part of the playing season, a reduced registration fee may be charged based upon the portion of the season remaining.  However, a reduced fee shall only be allowed if the lateness in registration is justified (e.g. player just moved to area, had been injured or ill, or had been trying out for a Junior Hockey Club).


b.       A refund will be granted up until July 15th in the amount of registration fees paid, minus a $100 administration fee.  

c.       After July 15th, a refund will only be considered on the basis of residential relocation or injury, as follows:


i.         All players who leave TMHA before the end of the season, because of residential relocation, may apply in writing to the Treasurer for a return of fees. The amount of the refund will be governed by the date on which the written request is received and shall be calculated in accordance with the table at iv. below.


ii.         Any player, who becomes medically unfit or receives an injury that prevents him/her from participating in minor hockey for the rest of the season, shall be entitled to a refund. The amount of the refund will be governed by the date on which the injury occurred or medical condition noted by a physician and shall be calculated in accordance with the Table 1 at iv. below.  The player must provide medical certification by a licensed medical practitioner in support of a refund request made on medical grounds.

iii.            In the event of suspension or expulsion of a player, neither fee, nor part thereof, will be refunded, regardless of (i) and/or (ii) above.

 iv.         Refunds shall be calculated in accordance with Table I below, according to the date the written application is received as follows:
