AGE LEVEL GUIDES AND PLAYING UP
This season the registration system will only offer you a set of hockey age levels to choose from based on your player's birthdate. You will also be asked if you intend to "play up" a level. If you indicate you intend to play up, you will be presented with the next age level on the Payment Options page.
If you want to change your mind about playing up, click on the Player Information page link in the left navigation menu. On this page you can change your response to the Play up question to "does not intend to play up" and after navigating through the pages to the Payment Options page you will see the younger, age appropriate level item in your basket and may proceed to checkout or register another player.
Pay attention to the text that pops up when you select your age level for this season. This reminds you that when playing up, you must make a request to the board for approval. Contact the the youth or girls director with the details of your request (see board members on the Board page on the top menu of the RAYHA website). The board must approve your play up prior to tryouts. the board will communicate the decision and if necessary update your registration and fees to reflect the outcome of your request.
If you entered the incorrect birthdate at USA Hockey or you edit your player’s birthdate after entering your USA Hockey Confirmation Number, you may be asked to change your registration and pay any additional fees required for your age appropriate level as we discover the discrepancy when we submit rosters for approval with the district and Minnesota Hockey.
If you have any questions or problems with your age level or playing up, contact Player Registration Support below.
YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO PROVIDE A COPY OF A STATE CERTIFIED BIRTH CERTIFICATE OR PASSPORT
To be officially rostered with a team, USA Hockey requires age and citizenship verification to determine eligibility. If you have registered with USA Hockey and have been rostered on a team in past seasons you will most likely have no action. However, sometimes experienced players who have been rostered may need to be re-verified.
If you are asked to provide a COPY of your player’s state certified Birth Certificate or US Passport, please do so ASAP. Any delay may prevent your child from being on the ice with their team until the verification can be completed.
Look for information from Team Managers or the Registrar for options to provide this documentation to the District official responsible for verifying player eligibility. We are working to provide more options for members to fulfill this requirement this season.
Mite 4, Squirt/10U, Peewee/12U, Bantam, and 15U teams received a new set of jerseys last season. Jersey care, maintenance, and replacement are now the player's and family's responsibility. You can indicate your need for a new set in the registration session.
Tom Molloy will manage the orders this season. You can review the "Jersey Info" page under the Registration menu at the top of the RAYHA website. This page will provide a list available numbers for each age level. You will want to pick you top five (5) number choices. Tom will assign numbers on first come basis. To ensure proper sizing, you may visit Strauss to try on sample jerseys or contact another player/family for sizing recommendations.
If you change your mind, mistakenly skip the jersey questions, or have questions about the process, contact Tom Molloy, RAYHA Equipment Director (contact information at the bottom of this page and under the Board menu on the RAYHA website).
VOLUNTEER OR PAY
Each player's parents/family is required to volunteer 10 hours of their time (per player) to help run RAYHA, District, or other Minnesota Hockey events and activities. Volunteer opportunities will be published on our website, e-mailed from RAYHA, and communicated through team managers, coaches, and the RAYHA Volunteer Coordinator, Chelsey Rosenthal. Remember to pick up and track your volunteer hours in the DIBS system.
Volunteers are critical to keeping costs down and making our association and teams run. However, if your time is tight, you may choose to buy out of this commitment during the registration check out process. The cost is $125 per player, with a $375 family maximum. Please refer to our RAYHA handbook for details on volunteer commitments, noting that some team specific service (box and clock, for example) do not count toward your 10 hours.
If you failed to pay for unmet volunteer hours from the 2016-2017 season, you will be notified for payment as part of the second registration after tryouts.
REVIEW YOUR PLAYER REGISTRATIONS, CHOOSE PAYMENT OPTIONS, AND CHECKOUT
