DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SIGN UP WITH FEMALE HOCKEY CENTRAL REGISTRY
Jun. 29, 2015
Hockey Nova Scotia is proud to introduce our new Female Hockey Central Registry.
LINKS TO REGISTER WITH YOUR NEW FEMALE HOCKEY ZONE CAN BE FOUND BELOW.
Beginning on June 15, all female hockey players who plan to play Female Hockey (Female Atom, Female Peewee, Female Bantam and Female Midget) during the 2015-16 season will be required to sign up with Hockey Nova Scotia in our new Central Registry.
Please note that signing up with the Central Registry is completely free. There is no charge. The registration period to get signed up with the Central Registry will run from June 15 – July 31, 2015.

NOTE: All players need to sign up. If female players choose to play Minor Hockey instead of Female Hockey, they will be able to opt out of the registry.
Here is how the registry works: Female players will sign up online with one of six geographical zones based on where they live. These zones are made of the regions represented by our current Minor Hockey Association (MHA) borders. Registration is done online through the Hockey Canada Online Registration System. Links to register with the new zones can be found below.
For example, if your child played with the New Waterford MHA during the 2014-15 season, you will sign her up with the FEMALE CAPE BRETON ZONE. If she played hockey with the South Shore MHA this past season, you will sign her up with the FEMALE WESTERN ZONE.
Below is a list of the six new zones and the MHAs which make them up. (Please note that players from the Cape Breton West MHA will have the option of signing up with either FEMALE CAPE BRETON or FEMALE FUNDY/HIGHLAND and players from the Clare-Digby MHA will have the option of signing up with either FEMALE WESTERN or FEMALE NOVA.)
FEMALE CAPE BRETON (includes players who live within the borders of the Glace Bay MHA, Strait Richmond MHA, Northside and District MHA, New Waterford MHA, Sydney MHA, Cape Breton County MHA, and Cape Breton West MHA)
FEMALE FUNDY/HIGHLAND (includes players who live within the borders of the Antigonish MHA, Truro MHA, Pictou County MHA, Canso MHA, Tatamagouche MHA, Cumberland County MHA, South Colchester MHA, West Colchester MHA, Parrsboro MHA, and Cape Breton West MHA)
FEMALE DARTMOUTH (includes players who live within the borders of the Dartmouth MHA, Eastern Shore MHA, East Hants MHA, Cole Harbour MHA)
FEMALE HALIFAX (includes players who live within the borders of the Halifax Hawks MHA, Sackville MHA, Chebucto MHA, TASA MHA, Bedford MHA)

FEMALE WESTERN (players who live within the borders of the includes South Shore MHA, Chester MHA, Shelburne MHA, Yarmouth MHA, Clare-Digby MHA, Queens MHA)
When players have signed up with their respective Female Hockey Zone, they will be placed on teams by our Female Hockey Committees. Our committees will create teams and place players on those teams based on the location of players and their desired level of players. When a team has been formed, it will then be assigned back to a Minor Hockey Association in the Female Hockey Zone. Players will pay their registration to their assigned Minor Hockey Association.
Please note: Players will have the option to sign up for both C-level (community level) hockey and either AA or A-level hockey.
