So you want to start a new team?
Follow these steps and if you have any questions, you can find contact information on our Contacts page.
If you’re new to the league or just don’t have a team, register through the Coach/Player registration as a Free Agent. Teams will contact you directly about subbing on a game or possibly rostering you for a full season.
Review the Division’s below and find your level of play. If you register as a B level player, you’ll be able to participate in games in the B Division, as well as A Division. C level players can play up to B and A Divisions, etc.
1.) Complete the New Team Application.
2.) Attend the Annual Meeting that's hosted in the fall. Date, location and time will be posted on our Home Page.
3.) Reserve your ice times. You are responsible for reserving ice at whatever home rink you choose. Your team is required to play every other team within your division twice, once home and once away. So you will need at least enough ice times to cover your home games. (Please note, the more ice times you provide,
the easier it is for us to schedule).
4.) Click on the New Team Registration button on this page and register your team. You will be required to provide your reserved ice times during registration. An explanation of the divisions is provided on the WACH Season page. If you have any questions about what division you belong in, hit us up, we'll help.
5.) Get your jerseys and find your players. You will need home and away jerseys and your players will need to register through the Player Registration button also found on this page.
