Registration

2021-2022 Season Registration - CLOSED

 

All Trails West players who have not registered with the Calgary Royals before but who wish to try-out for the Calgary Royals elite teams (U13AA, U15AAA/AA, U16AAA/AA, U18AAA/AA) must contact the Calgary Royals Administrator at admin@calgaryroyals.ca as she needs to request to "share" the player's Hockey Canada Registry profile with the Calgary Royals before the player can register for their try-outs

Exception for 2021 - If you registered for either of the Royals zoom information sessions, the Royals Administrator has your information and has already requested to share the player's Hockey Canada profile.  However, you must still register the player with the Calgary Royals if they intend to try-out.

 

Hockey Alberta has extended all valid RESPECT IN SPORT - PARENT (and Activity Leader) CERTIFICATIONS by one year. This change is reflected in the Hockey Canada Registry only and not in the individual's Respect in Sport account as it is specific to Hockey Alberta only.  Therefore, if Respect in Sport was taken in 2017, the expiry date is now May 1, 2022 and re-certification for the 2021-2022 season will no longer be required.

Registration with Trails West is done via TeamSnap, not HCR 3.0.  The “Register” button seen under Trails West in “My Organization” on the HCR 3.0 Spordle platform will not take you to our registration forms.  Please see below for all registration related information and the registration links for the 2021-2022 season.

The Hockey Canada Registration platform has been updated and HCR 3.0 replaces e-Hockey and Hockey Canada Registry 2.0.  Families will need to create a new HCR 3.0 Spordle account for access to their player's information in the Hockey Canada Registry 3.0.  This applies to coaches and referees too.

Click here for more information on this and a quick and easy step by step guide to creating a new HCR 3.0 account and linking self & family members.

IMPORTANT: Information is still being migrated over to the new HCR 3.0 Spordle platform so please be patient if you not see full team history or all qualifications yet for your linked members.

This should be the email address that will be the main email address for all TWHA communication (including emails regarding evaluations). This email is considered your TeamSnap Roster Email and can be different than your TeamSnap Account Email that you use to login to TeamSnap.  Refer to this TeamSnap FAQs for an explanation.  You can add your player's email address to their roster profile after the player has been rostered to a team in TeamSnap.

Required for verification purposes at the beginning of registration.  You will be unable to continue registration unless this verification is successful. The Hockey Canada ID number can be obtained a couple different ways, please refer to TWHA's How Do I Find My Hockey Canada ID document for help.

This policy allows registrants in the U11 age division the opportunity to participate as both a ‘skater’ and a ‘goaltender’.

Please review the Hockey Calgary U11 Hybrid Goalie Policy and the TWHA U11 Hybrid Goalie Policy for an overview and expectations of the policy prior to registration.

Payment Options

Trails West is pleased to offer our members credit card payment plan options:

Option 1 – Instalment Plan (New default option) *extended for the 2021-2022 season

  • Depending upon date of initial registration, you can make up to 5 payments on this plan with fees divided into equal payments.
  • Instalment payments, except the first instalment due at checkout, will be processed on August 15, September 15, October 15 and November 15.
  • At TeamSnap checkout, the pay by instalments button defaults to "on" and the order summary will reflect each instalment payment date and amount.

Option 2 – Payment in Full

Make a one time full payment at time of registration. During TeamSnap checkout you must click the button to "off" for pay by instalments. Your order summary will be adjusted to reflect one payment so please verify this prior to confirming payment.

All members must be fully paid by November 15, 2021

Registering after closing date of August 15 will only be considered if player numbers permit, and will be subject to a $250 late fee (U7-U18). Full payment will be required at time of registration.

Option 3 - Using TeamSnap Credits & Instalment Plan or Payment in Full for remaining balance (new for 2021-2022 season)

To use previously issued TeamSnap Credits from the 2020-2021 Season Refund, the person registering the participant(s) must be the same person who received the credits.  If there are TeamSnap Credits available to the registrant, during checkout, a question will be asked to apply the credit. The toggle must be "ON" to apply the credit to the registration balance.  The full balance of the credit will be applied when possible. If there is a remaining balance owing after the credit has been applied, select either instalment payments or pay in full.  The default is for instalment payments and the remaining balance will be split evenly across the instalment dates.

(For example: If mom registered the player last season and received credits in the spring from the season refund, mom must register the player to use the credits towards this season's registration. If Dad registers the player this season instead, the credits will not be available to be used towards this season's registration fees.)

Registration Fee Receipts are available on your TeamSnap dashboard for one year only from the date of completed registration.  Log into TeamSnap on a desktop version (web version, not mobile app). Look under "My Registrations" for Trails West Hockey Association and scroll to the bottom to "View Receipt". If you require a receipt, it is advisable to print the receipt after you have completed registration.

IMPORTANT: Only the person who registered the player will have access to the payment/receipt details.

Financial Assistance

There are various financial assistance programs available for TWHA players whose families face financial barriers to participating in hockey.

If you intend to apply for financial assistance from any of the below noted programs, please contact TWHA’s Administrator prior to registering as you may also be eligible for a revised registration fee payment plan for registration fees. It is the responsibility of the registrant to apply for financial assistance.

During registration, there will be an optional question “Financial Assistance Only: I will be applying for the Flames Even Strength Program”. This option will apply a credit of $700, the maximum amount of financial assistance that may be received through FESP.  By selecting this option, you agree that you believe you are eligible for this financial assistance and intend to apply for FESP.  Should you not receive the maximum financial assistance as adjusted, you also agree to be responsible for the remaining fees owing and to work with the TWHA Administrator regarding payment. The default at checkout is the instalment plan and the balance owing will be divided equally among the instalments so the balance will be paid in full by November 15.

Financial assistance for fees

Financial assistance for equipment

 

You can apply for both financial assistance for fees and equipment costs. All programs attempt to help as many children as possible. In order to achieve this, you may not be approved for the amount that you request. Final approval of the amount that you request may be reduced due to budgets and demand. All details are held in strict confidence.

Trails West will not accept funds for more than the total registration fee owing per player if you apply to more than one sponsor for fee assistance.  Financial assistance granted for a player can not be transferred to another player, even a sibling.

To apply for financial assistance through Trails West (TWHA Financial Assistance or Knudtsen Assistance for fees or equipment), please click on the Application for TWHA Financial Assistance to the left and email the completed form to the TWHA Administrator.

Respect in Sport–Parent

Hockey Calgary requires every player registered for minor hockey to have a valid Respect in Sport – Parent certificate associated with the player's Hockey Canada profile. As Hockey Calgary is committed to creating a positive hockey experience for all, they provide this convenient online course for hockey parents through the Respect in Sport program.  This 1 hour online program is designed to reinforce a parent’s role in a child’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviours, and empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child's fun and camaraderie of the activity.

More information on this program is available on Hockey Calgary’s website or Hockey Alberta’s website.

Respect in Sport-Parent certificates are normally valid for a period of 4 hockey seasons after which re-certification is required.  However, in April 2021, Hockey Alberta extended the expiration date of all valid Respect in Sport - Parent certifications by one year. Therefore, if Respect in Sport-Parent was taken in the 2017-2018 season, the expiry date is now May 1, 2022 and re-certification prior to a player's registration for the 2021-2022 season will not be required.

To begin the Hockey Alberta Respect in Sport

Please review the TWHA RIS-Parent New User Guide for assistance in setting up a RIS account, adding your child(ren) and accessing the program.

To begin the Hockey Alberta Respect in Sport-Parent program, please visit the Hockey Alberta Respect in Sport for Parents website.

Conditioning Camp (Pre-Season Camps)

Trails West will be offering optional conditioning camps this season for U9, U13, U15 and U18 players/goaltenders and pre-skates for all registered U11 players.  These camps are designed to help your athlete prepare for evaluations and will focus on the types of skills and drills the athletes are likely to see at evaluations.

Conditioning Camp refers to the optional sessions offered by Trails West to our incoming U9, U13, U15 and U18 players/goaltenders for which there is an additional registration fee.  Pre-skates are available for incoming community stream U11 players and are included in their current season’s registration fees so registration for pre-skates is not required. Pre-season camps refers to both conditioning camps and pre-skates.

Only those players/goaltenders registered with TWHA for the 2021-2022 season will be permitted to attend TWHA conditioning camps. Conditioning camp registration will be cancelled for those players not registered for the upcoming season.

NEW for the 2021-2022 Pre-Season Camps (U9-U18) we are very excited to announce that we will be partnering with local elite level coaches with over 35 combined years of experience at the Bantam AA, AAA and Minor Midget AAA Levels. Our goal is to create an unmatched experience for our players and families that focuses on player development in a fun and competitive environment. This will include enhanced player feedback, increased practice flow, more puck touches and a faster work to rest ratio, ensuring all of our players are prepared both mentally and physically for the evaluation process.

Instructional coaches will all be certified with Hockey Development 1 and/or High Performance 1, giving  our players and our association coaches, what we think, will be one of the best conditioning camps in the City of Calgary

Quadrant (Royals) Tryout

All U13, U15 and U18 players who intend to try out for the Calgary Royals must be registered with Trails West as well as the Calgary Royals for the 2021-2022 Season. During Trails West registration, there will be a required question “Is your player trying out for Quadrant Hockey with the Calgary Royals (CRAA)?”.  Here are the options to choose from:

U13

Option 1: Yes - Pay TWHA Registration Fee (Quadrant Tryout). You will be required to pay the regular registration fee either in full at time of registration or using the instalment plan. Late fees will apply as usual if you register using this option and are non-refundable. Should your player be drafted to the Royals, a full refund of the regular registration fee paid will be issued by credit card to you upon our receipt of confirmation of their draft.

Option 2: No (Quadrant Tryout).

U15-U18

Option 1: Yes – Adjust TWHA Registration Fee (Quadrant Tryout). This option will credit the regular registration fee so that no regular registration fee is required to be paid at registration checkout if registration is made prior to August 15 (however, late fees will apply).  If we receive confirmation that the player has been released by the Calgary Royals and is returning to play with Trails West, the full program regular registration fee will be added to the player’s registration. To pay, login to your TeamSnap account and click “My Registrations” and then the “pay now” button next to 2021-2022 TWHA Registration. The balance owing must be paid in FULL prior to the player’s first skate with Trails West.

Option 2: Yes - Pay TWHA Registration Fee (Quadrant Tryout). You will be required to pay the registration fee either in full at time of registration or using the instalment plan. Late fees will apply as usual if you register using this option and are non-refundable. Should your player be drafted to the Royals, a full refund of the regular registration fee paid will be issued by credit card to you upon our receipt of confirmation of their draft.

Option 3: No (Quadrant Tryout).

 

IMPORTANT: Trails West registration does NOT register your player with the Calgary Royals for their try-outs.  You must register your player separately for the Calgary Royals Try-Outs using the registration link on the Calgary Royals website. Players who have not registered with the Calgary Royals before must have their Hockey Canada profile shared with the Calgary Royals prior to registering with them. Please contact the Calgary Royals Administrator for assistance.

Exception for 2021 - If you registered for either of the Royals zoom information sessions, the Royals Administrator has your information and has already requested to share the player's Hockey Canada profile.  However, you must still register the player with the Calgary Royals if they intend to try-out.

 

Should your player return to Trails West and they were not previously registered with Trails West under the above noted registration options, there is no guarantee they will be accepted by Trails West and a late registration fee of $250 will apply if accepted.


If you are unsure how to register as a Quadrant player, please contact the TWHA Administrator or the Calgary Royals Administrator.

Should registration be full before those outside our boundaries have the opportunity to register, priority for additional available spots will be given to those on the waitlist within our boundaries, in order of registration on the waitlist.  However, if the existing program capacity is full after registration opened to those outside of our boundaries, then any future spots available will be offered to those on the waitlist in a first registered on the waitlist basis regardless if the player is inside or outside our boundaries.

If there is space available, the TWHA Administrator will reach out to those on the waitlist as per the above. Payment for the full registration fee will be required at the time a spot is offered.

Verification of Eligibility

We require proof of age for all new players (ie. birth certificate, passport), and proof of residency (ie.utility bill – clearly showing billing and service address or current Income Tax Assessment or Home Insurance Policy). Please scan and email these documents to the TWHA Administrator. Kindly reference Learn to Skate - New Player Registration in the subject line. Note, if your child continues to U7 (Timbits), minor hockey registration has different requirements, so you will need to provide this proof again.

Fees

Birth year 2015-2017: $390

In 2021, Trails West received a posthumous donation on behalf of Coach Bill Patton who coached Learn to Skate from 1982-2007.  His kind generosity has allowed us to reduce our regular registration fee for the LTS program by $50 per player.  All LTS jerseys beginning in the 2021-2022 season will have a "Coach Bill" patch in recognition of his dedication to our LTS program.

How we contact you

Trails West provides the LTS team their roster and practice schedule via TeamSnap. It is important to know that the required email address under "Participant Information" during registration is the main email address used for all TWHA communication. This email is considered your TeamSnap Roster Email and can be different than your TeamSnap Account Email that you use to login to TeamSnap. Refer to this TeamSnap tipsheet for an explanation.

Prior to the first skate for LTS, you will receive an email from TeamSnap asking to either “Join the Team” or “Congrats! You’ve been added to ---- Team”.  If you are a member of TeamSnap already using the same participant email address as used during registration, you will automatically be added to the team.  If you are not a member of TeamSnap or have used a different email than what we have on record, then you will be asked to set up an account so you can join the team.  Basic player information will be uploaded to the TeamSnap Team Rosters using information from registration form. Every family is encouraged to review and amend this information if necessary on the player profile within TeamSnap.  Should you wish to keep your contact information private from other team members on TeamSnap, you may click on the "Hide all contact information from teammates" during registration or change this feature once you have been added to the team.

Payment

Payment is by credit card only.  Information regarding financial assistance is available on the TWHA website and you can apply directly to the organizations.

Refund policy

Subject to TWHA Board Review. Full refund of Regular Registration Fee less $50, less portion of season missed.  To request a refund, please complete the TWHA Refund Form Learn to Skate and send it to the TWHA Administrator.

Volunteering

Trails West is 100% volunteer driven. We are looking for someone to coordinate the Learn to Skate program. If you are interested, please contact the TWHA Administrator.

Registration Documentation Required: Please remember to send proof of age and proof of residency as noted under Verification of Eligibility. This is required for your player to be fully registered.
