BC Hockey Female Central Registry

Posted by Oceanside MHA at Jun 27, 2019 11:13AM PDT

Attention ALL Peewee, Bantam and Midget Female Players

In preparation for the 2019-2020 hockey season, BC Hockey has created a Female Central Registry for players interested in playing female hockey at the Pee Wee, Bantam and Midget divisions.

In accordance with BC Hockey’s Female Model, the Female Central Registry will be utilized to allow more females to play female hockey.

All females interested in participating in female hockey (including potential exhibition or tournament teams) are encouraged to register. There is no cost to register via the Female Central Registry. All participants are encouraged to register with their home Minor Hockey Association (MHA) first.

MHAs will continue to organize and host female teams. The Female Central Registry will allow BC Hockey’s Female Zone Leads to aid MHAs in finding players from outside their draw zone interested in participating in female hockey.

For the purpose of the registry, each MHA has been assigned to a Female Zone. Each player is to register under the zone of their home MHA. OMHA is listed under Vancouver Island Central.

The deadline to register through the Female Central Registry will be August 25, 2019.
Information and Registration is available through the BC Hockey Website. You can follow the following link below.

Please contact OMHA’s female Coordinator for any additional questions @
