Registration fees are non-refundable

Your $550 registration fee (NIHL) or $1,000 registration fee (CSDHL) and/or any other fees paid will be forfeited for any and all reasons listed below:


  • A player who is placed on a CSDHL team but does not accept their spot.
  • A player who tries out for a CSDHL team and declines a spot on a NIHL team.
  • A player who is placed on a NIHL team but does not accept their spot.
  • A player who is placed on a team and decides to quit mid-season.
  • A player who is injured at any point throughout the season.

If you tryout for a CSDHL team and your child does not make it, the $1,000 registration fee will be applied toward your NIHL season fees. 

The $550 registration fee for NIHL teams will ONLY be refunded if your player is not placed on a NIHL team.

USA Hockey Requirement

Each Player must register first with USA Hockey and then return to this Registration Session to signup for the 2019-2020 Season.

  • Step 1:  CLICK HERE to go to USA Hockey Registration and register your player(s). Be sure to PRINT and SAVE their confirmation code(s). Remember to register EACH of your players with USA Hockey. Each player must have their own unique USA Hockey confirmation number.
  • Step 2:  Return to this registration and proceed. Later in this registration session you will need to enter the USA Hockey Confirmation Code that you received in Step 1.

Family Discount

If you are registering more than one player in your family, you will receive a $150 discount on the 2nd & 3rd child's Registration Fee. In order for the registration system to recognize that you are registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time. On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your players are registered within the same order.


***Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your Family's Discount rates.***

Early Registration Deadline

The prices listed below reflect the early bird discount. If you register after August 1, the cost of the season will increase by $150. The late registration fee of $150 will be added to your registration fee. Meaning, instead of paying $550 to register you will pay $700 per child.

Your remaining balance due for the season will NOT change (i.e. if the cost of the season in full is $3000 and you paid $700 to register, you would still have a remaining balance due of $2450 as the additional $150 is a late fee and is not deducted from total balance due).

Payment Options

The only payment due today upon completion of this registration is a $550 per child registration fee for NIHL OR a $1,000 registration fee for CSDHL.  Your remaining balance due for the season will be billed through the RecPlex. This means that there is NO option to make any other payments for the season online. Vipers Hockey does not collect season fees online in an effort to keep the cost of the program as low as possible by avoiding high processing fees associated with this.


ALL families will be required to submit an Authorization Form for payment. Forms can be dropped off at the RecPlex Ice Arena or emailed to 


Payment Authorization Forms are due no later than Friday, September 6, 2019.

All forms submitted after this due date will incur a $30 per child late fee.
