Viper (Rep) Registration will now be separate from House League (HL) Registration

If any player is trying out for a Viper (Rep) team this season, a Viper Registration must be completed

A player cannot be registered for both programs if below U15 BOYS as the HL and Rep seasons overlap, in these age groups.

For U15 BOYS and above, a player can register and play in both HL and Rep programs if desired, as the seasons do not overlap in these age groups.

If an age eligible player chooses to play both Rep and HL, registration needs to be completed for both programs

 If a player is not selected to play on a (Rep) team, the (Rep) registration fee can be transferred to (HL) if desired

** Players must be registered early to exercise the option to play (HL) in the event of an unsuccessful (Rep) tryout.

Increased (HL) registration can initiate a Registration Cut-off and then a Wait List. Any (HL) registration received past the Cut-off period will be added to the Wait List.

As in the past, once you are registered for Viper (Rep) you will be sent try-out dates by email. Ensure that your correct email address is included in your registration.


All players must be registered in order to attend a Viper try-out.
