USAH Online Registration Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
What’s online registration?
Online registration allows HYHA members to register directly with USA Hockey through an Internet connection at www.usahockey.com. During the on-line process, the USA Hockey Waiver is completed, and USA Hockey and the Connecticut Hockey Conference  fees are paid with a credit card.
A confirmation email is also sent to the member immediately after an online registration. Members are to then forward a copy of the confirming email from USAH to the HYHA Registrar before the first team practices in August. This completes the 07-08 registration process.
Why online registration for USA Hockey?
First, to reduce the workload of HYHA program volunteers – we will no longer need to collect and disperse USA Hockey fees and Affiliate fees, collect and retain signed waivers, do data entry, create disks, print reports to go with disks, and make trips to the post office! Second, online registration will ensure accurate, efficient and direct communication with USA Hockey. It will also provide immediate verification of USAH registration and important insurance coverage that comes with every registration, as well as, receipt of payment for our member.
When will online registration be available?
Online registration for the 2007-08 season is available now. HYHA members must complete the on-line registration by their first team skate in August. The registration will be valid from September 1, 2007 through August 31, 2008.
What credit cards can be used?
Online registration will accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Cards. Credit or debit cards can be used.
What if I am unable to use the on-line registration process?
Families not willing or able to take advantage of the on-line registration process must inform the HYHA Registrar of their need to register by hand as soon as possible.
What about Coach registration?
HYHA will register all coaches for the upcoming season
What if someone wants a refund?
There is a statement that appears on the online registration screen that says: “I understand that USA Hockey has a no-refund policy” – registrants must accept that statement to process the online registration. However, USAH will make exceptions as necessary. Requests for refunds must be made directly to USAH.
Where do the CHC fees go?
The USA Hockey fees and CHC fees are deposited into the USA Hockey account. On a regular basis, the CHC fees collected to date are transferred to the CHC via an ACH (bank to bank) credit transfer. A detailed report is also sent to the CHC Treasurer with each fund transfer.
What if someone loses their confirmation page?
The confirmation page is available to print at the time of registration. It is also emailed to the members so that it can be saved on your hard drive. If the form is lost, a duplicate can be requested by logging onto www.usahockey.com and accessing the online registration page.
