We want everyone to have an opportunity to play Hockey. That said, there are a number of financial support programs available where needed. Our Association also offers multiple sibling discounts.
We also provide “new” first-year players that register to play with the Heartland Dragons a starter hockey equipment kit as a bonus for joining our Jr. Dragons Initiation Program (while supplies last).
Our Association also runs a HOKEH (Help Our Kids Enjoy Hockey) equipment program. This program provides access to new/gently used equipment depending on the needs of your player for a $25 membership fee. Invitations to the program are sent out annually prior to the start of the hockey season.
Here are several other Financial Assistance Programs available – please check our Financial Assistance Programs page.
- 1st player is full price
- 2nd player discount $25
- 3rd player discount $50

A House League Refund Request must be emailed to our Registrar (firstname.lastname@example.org) with details listing the reason(s) for the withdrawal from the program.
The balance of Registration Fees will be refunded as follows:
- Request received up to August 14th: 80% of Registration Fee Refunded.
- Request received August 15th to 31st: 65% of Registration Fee Refunded.
- Request received September 1 to 15th: 50% of Registration Fee Refunded.
- Request received after September 15th: No Refund.
The refund applies to the HDHA portion of the Registration Fee. The MHL Fee is non-refundable.
NOTE: Should the hockey season be terminated due to a COVID/Health Board decision, refunds will be calculated/prorated as follows; HDHA Registration Fee paid less costs incurred by HD to the date of termination.
Please allow up to two (2) weeks for processing from time of acknowledgement that your request has been received by the Registrar. A refund request received after September 15th will be processed after the end of the MHL convening period in November.
No refund will be issued where a false statement is made during the registration process or through abuse of the registration system.
A Refund request for “A”, Gold, or Red player will be calculated as follows: You will remain responsible for your share of costs incurred as per the team’s approved budget until such time a replacement player is “rostered” to the team. At that time, you will receive a refund equivalent to your prorated share of the remaining unspent budget from that date to the end of the season. A minimum administration fee of $100 will be charged.
A Release Request must be emailed to our Registrar (email@example.com) with details listing the reason(s) for the release. It is reviewed by the Heartland Dragons Hockey Association Registration Committee. The Heartland Dragons Hockey Association may withhold its consent in its sole and absolute discretion. A Player release is not guaranteed. Granting of a release is uncommon.
A House League player release will not be reviewed until after the completion of MHL convening period in November. A release will not be granted in a case where a request for a release may cause a reduction in player numbers that may adversely impact a team’s ability to be registered at the desired skill category.
If a release is granted, any refund will be calculated based on the date of the release request, as per the Refund Policy set out above.
