New Players to Vancouver Thunderbirds Hockey
If you are interested in registering for the 2018/19 season and want to confirm you live within our boundary before completing the New Player Application, please email Tasha with the following information:
- Name of athlete
- Indicate if the athlete has played with the Thunderbirds previously
- please also include their birthdate and home address
Once confirmed you are in our boundary you must complete the online New Player Application form - click here.
Within 7 days of completing the application you will receive an email asking for the required paper work that is needed to register with Vancouver Thunderbirds.
New Player Registration will begin late May or early June after we close returning player registration and have confirmation on our ice allocation. Unfortunately we will not be able to determine the number of spaces available until this time, and will not be able to provide you with any information earlier.
Please note that you must have submitted all paperwork to be eligible to register. We will inform you if there is space and you will receive instructions on how to register. If space is not available, we will provide you the opportunity to be added to the wait list.
We look forward to welcoming you to the TBirds family!
Stay tuned for more information on registering for next season. We will be opening registration late April/early May.
Please note the 2018-19 Season Fees will be determined by the Board in Spring 2018 and will be posted at that time.
The Vancouver Thunderbirds Board of Directors has reviewed all costs associated with the club and will be keeping the base fees for the 2017-2018 season consistent with last season. The following reductions were implemented last season and remain in place for the 2017-2018 season:
- Families with 3 or more children registered with the Vancouver Thunderbird Minor Hockey Association will receive a 50% reduction of the base fee for the 3rd, 4th, 5th child and so on. (This will be reimbursed by September 30, 2017).
- Goalie Registration Fee: Full-time goalies in Atom, PeeWee, Bantam, and Midget - 50% of the base skater registration fee.
|Rep Tryout Fee (non-refundable)||$165||$165|
|Rep Association Fees*|
* Rep Association Fees are in addition to the season registration fees and are collected once rep teams are finalized.
The amount of the refund is determined based on the date the request for a refund is received as follows:
|Request Received By||Refund Amount|
|August 15||Fee less $50|
|September 30||75% of Fee|
|October 31||50% of Fee|
|November 30||25% of Fee|
Over the years, a number of Vancouver Thunderbirds Hockey families have benefited from the outstanding support offered by KidSport BC through the Vancouver chapter. The Association is not involved in the application process and all information shared with KidSport is not disclosed to our office.
Families seeking financial assistance are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible. There are countless Olympians and Paralympians across sport who have achieved their goals thanks to organizations such as KidSport, and there are even more who have been able to play the sport they love.
