2019-20 CYHA Registration

Welcome to the 2019-20 CYHA Online Player Registration

NEW for ALL CYHA Families in 2019-20

Starting in 2019, the State of MN property tax site will be used to verify residence of all players home address and school district.  If the name listed on the property tax site does not match the player/parent in the registration – or the property tax info cannot be found, the family will be required to provide at least 2 of the following as proof of residence per MN Hockey Handbook, page 24.  If proof of residence is not provided when requested, then the player will not be allowed to participate in CYHA Hockey tryouts or be rostered on any CYHA team.

  • Copy of Property Tax Statement
  • Copy of a Rental Lease agreement
  • Copy of a Current Drivers License
  • Copy of Current Utility Bill

NOTE for 19U Girls

CYHA will not have enough players to field a 19U team this year.  As a result, you do not have to complete the full registration for CYHA.   Instead, you only need to email your name and USA Hockey id to the CYHA registrar.   The Registrar contact info is at the bottom of the page. 

You will complete the registration and payment for 19U with BYHA as was done last year.

- Consent to treat forms are no longer needed!

- Volunteer contract with deposit check

- Be sure to read the CYHA Player Code of Conduct during the registration process.  Players and parents will be held to these rules throughout the season.  The registration will serve as your signature and approval instead of having to turn in a separate signed copy this year.

- Copy of the player's Official Government issued birth certificate (if not already on file)

- Completed Waivers (if not already on file, only needed for those players who do not live in ISD12 school district)


Additional detailed information can be found in the "2019-20 Registration Information" package found on the "Registration Forms and Documents" tab on this webpage.

This registration session will allow you to sign consents, sign CYHA code of conduct, complete contact information and submit payment. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover or checking account information available.

All player paperwork must be completed correctly and turned in prior to the deadlines or your player will not be allowed on the ice for tryouts.  PRIMARY REASON:  Any missing paperwork or errors in your players documentation violates the USA Hockey insurance.  In the event of an incident, USA Hockey Insurance coverage would be denied for not only your player or team, but also anyone else on the ice - including the opposing team.

First Step: USA Hockey Requirement

NOTE of things to be aware of before proceeding:

1. You MUST register your player with the legal name that is on their birth certificate unless you have court paperwork proving a name change.  IF YOU DO NOT - you will be asked to contact USA Hockey to fix the registration.  Much simpler to register properly the first time.

2.  All of the address information that is put on the roster is pulled directly from USA Hockey.  I cannot override it with the address you enter in NGIN.  If your player has multiple addresses - BE SURE TO REGISTER THEM WITH ONE THAT IS INSIDE OF ISD12 SCHOOL DISTRICT if possible, otherwise your player requires a participation waiver.

Redlining of players because of the above issues can be easily avoided if you pay attention to the above information.

Each Player must register first with USA Hockey and then RETURN TO THIS REGISTRATION SESSION to signup for the 2019-2020 Season before you can be added to a roster.

  • Step 1:  CLICK HERE to go to USA Hockey Registration and register your player(s). Be sure to PRINT and SAVE their confirmation code(s). Remember to register EACH of your players with USA Hockey before continuing with the registration process. Each player must have their own unique USA Hockey confirmation number.
  • Step 2:  Return to this registration and proceed. Later in this registration session you will need to enter the USA Hockey Confirmation Code that you received in Step 1.
