2022/23 Registration is OPEN!
We are happy to be opening the registration for the 2022/2023 hockey season. Please follow the link at the bottom to the Orono store on the Hockey Canada Registration website.






If your player(s) has played before for another association, you must LET US KNOW, so we can request a transfer for your player.  Once completed, we will let you know and you can complete steps 2 and 3.



If your player is new to hockey, please follow steps 1-3. 



If you player has played for Orono, please complete step 2 and 3.  




Steps to Complete Registration


1. One parent per family is required to complete a Respect in Sport Parent Program.  This program follows families and their players throughout their hockey career.  If you have already completed this for either another child or another sport, you do have the option to add a player under Child Management or Import a Certificate.


If you have not done this program yet, the cost is just under $13 and takes a couple of hours to complete.



Here is the link for the program - https://omhahockeyparent.respectgroupinc.com/



2.  Complete your players registration with Hockey Canada, as we have discovered that the best way to allow parents and guardians to keep track of their players, payments and all things Hockey Canada, is to have YOU complete stage one of registration for your player(s) yourselves by clicking this link - 


You will need to "register now", and complete the necessary information, waivers, etc. needed.  When you have completed the registration, you will see an invoice for the full amount, and then once your payment has been allocated (please allow some time for this as we are a two-person show), you will receive your updated invoice reflecting payment.



3. Payments can now be made by etransfer, VISA, Mastercard, Debit.


If you are choosing to pay by etransfer, payments can be made to this email address - [email protected]



When sending the etransfer please make the security question your child(ren)’s name(s) and the password oronohockey.


For Example, the question would be Ryder Mercer and the password will be oronohockey.



Once you have completed this process, we will go in and apply payments as they are received, allowing you to have access to this information.  Please keep in mind that we are a volunteer association, so this process may take time.



Again, for brand new players to hockey, you will not be able to do #2 if you haven't done #1.





Registration and participation in the Orono Amatuer Athletic Association (OAAA) is subject to your payment of the following Fees, which can be paid via credit card using a third party provider (  ) or payable via etansfer to [email protected] (please make your player(s) name the question, and "oronohockey" as the password) under the following payment structure.


Early Bird Fee –

               U5 (2017) - $460

               All other levels - $610

After August 1st, fees increase to the following and a $75 late fee will be applied –

               U5 (2017) - $535

               All other levels - $685



Payments can be made via "offline" etransfer payments or by using Sportspay, our third-party payment platform.  Payment options are etransfer or by Visa, Mastercard or Visa/Mastercard Debit.

Payment in full upon registration or by August 1st, or 2 payments divided and due upon registration (no later then August 1st) and October 1st

Please follow proper etransfer instructions as outlined during registration and subsequent communications.


Failure to pay at scheduled times could result in your player losing their place within the OAAA.


All costs are based on allotted scheduled ice and can be modified by the executive of the OAAA only.



A player is only deemed to be cancelled upon email notification to the Registrar at [email protected].


Cancellation from the season prior to or before September 1, 2022 will receive a full refund of fees paid minus a $50 administration fee.

No refunds on or after November 1, 2022.


*Should we be unable to fill a program, the OAAA reserves the right to cancel the program and provide the players a prorated refund based on the amount of ice times used.
