PrintReady to Register?


Please take a few minutes to read through the below document in full.  While registration online is a seamless process failing to answer the questions accurately and/or as directed will result in error messages that will hinder your registration attempt. 


Returning player?

If you have never before registered a child through online registration you will need to create an HCR account.  This can easily be completed by clicking, following the link and instructions in the portal. (see photo below as an example)



If you already have an account, sign in and proceed to registration.  Follow the prompts to select the player you wish to register and complete the registration process by answering the questions and following the prompts.  If you need to return to a previous page in the system, use the "BACK" button in the HCR program.  Do not use your browser's back button, as doing so will create an error and freeze your access temporarily.  Once the player's registration process is complete, you will have the option to add a second or subsequent player to your cart.  You can and should register all of your players in this way before entering the payment process. 

Once the registration process has been completed for all of the players that you wish to register, select the “checkout” option and proceed to the payment stage.

New to hockey or looking to transfer (in or out) ?

If this is your player's first year of minor hockey, there are some steps that need to be taken prior to registering.  First time U6, U7, U8 and U9 aged players (formerly Jr or Sr Initiation, Minor Novice and Novice) must provide DMHA with a copy of the player's birth certificate (to verify birth year and age) and the parent/guardian's full legal name and address.  Please email this information to DMHA at Once the requested information is received DMHA will create a “member profile” that will provide you with the access to register your child online.  Your DMHA registrar will advise once online registration is available to you.

U11 (formerly Atom (9+ years old)) and older players who are new to hockey are not able to register through HCR and must contact the registrar for further direction.  This is an OMHA directive.

If the player has played minor hockey in an association other than DMHA before and wishes to play in Dorchester for the upcoming season, it will be necessary to determine the player's eligibility to play in Dorchester based on OMHA's residency rules. 



If your player has played for another OMHA partner you may be required to complete one or more of the forms described below.  The above forms are available under the "Registration" tab. They must be downloaded and completed fully, with all supporting documentation.  The player's registration cannot be completed until OMHA approves that player's transfer.  OMHA will not review incomplete submissions.  For any questions or information, or to provide the required paperwork, please contact our OMHA rep (email link available through the "About Us" tab on the DMHA website).

OHF Player Transfer for Residential Move


In March 2018, the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) changed how Residential Move Transfers will be administered between their Minor Members (Alliance, GTHL, OMHA & NOHA).

Going forward the following transfer processes exist:

Any player requesting a move into DMHA from an OHF partner, other than OMHA, must now contact their outgoing Member’s Office and request a OHF Residential Transfer form.  The remaining steps will be communicated through your outgoing office.

Any player requesting a move out of Dorchester to an OHF partner, other than OMHA, must contact Virginia Jacobsen at to request a OHF Residential Transfer form.  The remaining steps will be communicated through Virginia.
