How to Register
- As a returning player you will be required to use last year’s e-mail to register. If you have changed e-mail addresses, please contact us by email.
- Returning players in all divisions EXCEPT Bantam and Junior are guaranteed team placement if they are registered prior to March 27th.

All players are put on a waiting list until confirmation of payment and acceptance into the League. Payment does not constitute acceptance.
Once a division fills up, a limited waiting list will be put into place. In order to have a confirmed position on the waiting list the participant must be registered using our online registration system (no registration fee is charged for placement on the waiting list).
Teammate requests will only be considered in the Mite division. All teammate requests received by WPBHL for players in divisions other than Mite will neither be acted on nor responded to.
Once teams have been selected some players may be traded in an attempt to equalize team strength. Team equalization will be done at the discretion of the division convenor and head coaches. Please see the Equalization section on our website for more details on this policy. Equalization may not occur in 2021 due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Our refund policy for 2021 is as follows:
If the season is cancelled or partially cancelled due to COVID-19 refunds will be issued league wide (except for a $10 administration fee to cover system registration costs and bank fees).
Our refund policy pre-COVID and post-COVID is as follows:
Refunds will be offered only if the request is received in writing. Please send your request to us by email.
- After registration and up to and including two weeks into season – refund minus non-refundable administration fee.
- After the second week of the season – no refund except in hardship cases (injuries, etc.) and refund will be prorated to games played and minus non-refundable administration fee.
- Coaches will be selected in April. All players will be contacted by their coaches prior to the start of the season
- In 2021, playoffs will likely not take place due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, we will plan a round robin or something to finish off the season.
- Each player will receive a team T-shirt in 2021 (a team and an individual photograph is to be determined.)
NOTE: All-star programs province-wide may be postponed for 2021. We will update as we have more information.
[Pre-2021] For players who are interested in a more competitive environment, we offer an all-star program, involving try-outs and additional practices, with the all-star teams playing in tournaments (as available), exhibition games and the provincial minor ball hockey championships in July. Extra fees are applicable for the all-star program.
We do our best but cannot accept and accommodate everybody.
