Adult Player Registration
VRA Beavers (18+ team) are currently accepting registrations and will cap out at 22 players. Please get your registration in quickly because for the last few years there has been a waitlist. Questions can be directed to VRA.Registrar@gmail.com.
Registration fee + $75 jersey deposit + $100 volunteer deposit + tournaments + year end coach gifts
Jersey & volunteer deposits are refunded in March 2020 once jerseys are returned and volunteer hours are submitted.
This season, we will have youth teams at 7 levels and a team of adult players.
All NEW registrants aged 9 or below, as of December 31st 2019, should register first in Fun 1.
As necessary, new registrants will be moved to the appropriate level thereafter.
New registrants (first season with Vancouver Ringette) who play Fun 1 or Fun 2 will be charged $200 for their first season.
If a new registrant is moved to U10, U10 fees will apply and the difference will be billed at time of movement.

There are 3 ways to pay after July 1, 2019:
- Interac e-transfer: Please email VancouverRingetteTreasurer@gmail.com. Please include in the comments the name of the child, the parent’s name, and the division that you are registering for.
- Via TeamSnap through WePay - a 3.1% processing fee will be added to the registration fee
- Cheque (postdated cheques can be given at the AGM), or sent to:
If players commit to playing goal half time or more in older divisions (U12 to 18+) a rebate equal to half the registration fee will be given at the end of March, 2020.
For the 3rd (and additional) child in a family, a $50 discount will apply for the 3rd and 4th players.
Players can register to join Vancouver Ringette Association up until December 31, 2019. The full registration amount must be paid, regardless of the date they start.
Players are eligible to tryout for the LMRL AA programs starting at the U12 level. At the U12 and U14 level, players who are in the AA program are still expected to play in their house team (in this case, for VRA).
In the U16 and U19 AA level, players are not allowed to play in their house team. However, they still must pay the affiliate fee of $135 to the house association, which covers their insurance fees with BCRA and the LMRL fee.
In the case of financial hardship, there are programs such as Jumpstart and Kidsport available, that will help subsidize the registration fees. These programs require applications, so please be in touch with these organizations and inform the VRA Registrar or the VRA Treasurer if subsidy is needed. In addition, these programs do not cover the entire portion of the registration fee. Families must pay the difference before September 30, 2018, otherwise they will not be allowed on the ice.
In addition to the registration fees, there may be extra fees required throughout the season, as decided upon by the team. Teams may choose to participate in tournaments. These tournaments are not covered in the VRA registration fee. If financial help is needed to pay for these extra-curricular fees, please contact the VRA Registrar or VRA Treasurer.
All requests for registration fee refunds must be made in writing by the individual who paid the fees to the attention of the Registrar.
Requests made prior to September 15, 2019 will be granted a full refund less a $25 administrative fee.
Requests made after September 16 will receive a prorated refund based on the remaining season, less $160 (administrative fee + BCRA insurance fee + LMRL fee).
Players who have not paid in full by September 30, 2019 will not be permitted on the ice (games or practices) until full payment has been received.
