Adult Player Registration (Ages 18+ as at 31-Dec-2022)
Adults wishing to play in any CIHA league/team in Winter 2022 or Summer 2022-2023 must register!
CLOSED: Winter 2022 Registration: Premier Division, Women's League, or Senior League Grade 4
Summer 2022-2023 Registration: Senior League
Grade 2 and 3: if you did not play Winter 2022, follow the General Registration instructions below. If you played Winter 2022, you do not need to register again at this time. Contact you team manager regarding season schedule and fees.
After registering in one of these programs, your 2022 CIHA registration is complete and there's nothing more to do. Thanks for registering!
General Registration for Players on All Other Teams/Leagues
If you have not registered in one of the leagues/teams above, you must do General Registration. This includes players in Senior League Grades 2-3, Masters, and adult Representative Teams. General Registration includes the cost of required annual memberships (see below), but does not cover the cost of your playing fees for your league/team. Your league/team will provide you with instructions for playing fees separately.
You will need a CIHA online account to register and pay your membership fee with a credit/debit card. See our Registration Guide for help in creating your account. If you do not have a credit/debit card or have regsitration questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Note on 2022 Annual CIHA and NZIHF Membership Fees
Registration requires purchase of your annual CIHA and New Zealand Ice Hockey Federation (NZIHF) memberships. These memberships are required for you to play in your CIHA league/team. Choose the correct membership during registration:
CIHA and NZIHF Junior (Age 20 and younger as at 31 Dec 2022): $95
CIHA and NZIHF Senior (Age 21 and older as at 31 Dec 2022): $115
Why Do I Have To Pay Annual Membership Fees?
CIHA is a non-profit organisation with considerable expenses related to organising and offering ice hockey in Canterbury and therefore requires charging a membership fee in order to function. Some of the expenses include accounting systems, auditors, website, equipment such as our new nets, score bench and clock, representation at NZIHF meetings, and more. This is not new: CIHA members have been required to pay membership fees for decades.
