Parent-Player Q&A

  • Q: This is our first-time playing Hockey. What do I need to do?

A: You will need to provide a digital document for age verification to upload to in the online registration (e.g., birth certificate, baptismal certificate, immunization record). Our Rec League is geared to new players and is like AYSO.  First time players can play in our Rec League and play in a more structured environment in our Club system.  We have an Open Registration, we load balance teams for fair play, there are no tryouts, we provide professional coaching. Everyone who registers will get to play. As a player develops, falls in love with the game, and wants more opportunities to practice and play, we will offer those opportunities. Our Club teams practice during the week in the afternoon at Harris Family Stadium @ Moorpark College.


  • Q: I can't log in, or I am logged in but I don't see my participant's information.

 If you have forgotten your username or password, request to reset your password or retrieve your account username at the login page. DO NOT CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT. If you create a second account, it will not be linked to your child's registration, and you will not be able to view your team page or your child's registration information. Email [email protected] if issues persist.

  • Q: My spouse registered my child; how do I log into their account?

A: The Primary Account User can invite you to be an Additional Account User. From the Primary Account User's My Account screen, click on the gear icon in the upper right, to "Edit Account Info". Scroll to bottom of Primary Parent/Guardian Info page and click on "Add Additional Account Holder". An invitation will be sent to the Additional Account User with a link to create their own login for the shared account. 

  • Q: Is there a Waitlist if we sign up in the middle of a season?

A: We believe that the best way to learn hockey is to play hockey. That is why we have limits on roster sizes in our programs - so that every child gets equal playing time. We are an all-volunteer run organization and the number of players we can place on teams each season depends on the number of volunteer coaches we have available to lead those teams. Our Director of Competition and Head of Umpires work tirelessly each season to recruit volunteer coaches and help them complete coach training, so that we can place as many players as possible. We are an all-volunteer run organization and are always looking for more coaches. You can better your child's chance of being placed on a team sooner, by volunteering.


  • Q: OK I've registered my player. Now what?

 After the registration period closes, our Director of Competition, Director of Volunteers and Umpire Manager forms teams based on the number of players & coaches. These first team rosters are presented to coaches in late January and early February for the Spring season.   Until then, sit tight.  We offer preseason practice and play opportunities.  You should expect to hear from your coach around the beginning of February to hold the first team meeting. In the meantime, have you considered volunteering as a coach, umpire trainee, team manager or any of the other volunteer opportunities? We are 100% volunteers and need all the help we can get! If a family is not able to Volunteer for the season, then they can opt out and pay a $25 fee.


  • Q: How do I volunteer?

A: There are many volunteer roles that need to be filled each year. It takes the work of many to make each hockey season happen. We are always looking for more help, especially coaches, umpire trainees and team manager/parents. No prior experience is necessary for any volunteer role, we provide all the training you will need. To sign up to volunteer, log into your account and add the volunteer role of your choice by searching for "Find Volunteer Roles" in the Volunteer tab in your account. Volunteers must sign up every year for their preferred role. Have questions about becoming a Volunteer? Contact our Director of Volunteers or our Systems Director: [email protected] or [email protected]


Does my child have to play in the assigned division?

A: The player is assigned to a division based on the year of birth. We will only consider allowing them to play in a different one in very rare circumstances, and only if the player wants to "play up" (play in an older division). Players are allowed to play in multiple divisions if their skills and abilities permit and approved by our Director of Competition.  Requests to play in a younger division are generally not allowed. Players who are approved to play up in another division, must play for that same Club team, unless Club doesn’t have a team in that division.


Q: Who will be on my team?

A: For 10U and below Rec League, players are assigned to teams randomly. From 12U and up, coach ratings from the previous year are used to ensure the teams are relatively balanced in terms of skill. FHF is committed to balancing teams every season to ensure that every child has a safe and positive experience.


  • Q: Can my child be placed on the same team as his/her friends?

A: Yes, most of the time! One of our philosophies is “Balanced Teams”. To maintain balanced teams across each Rec League division, we build new teams each year in the program, with players assigned to teams at random. This keeps our Rec League play fair and fun for everyone. FHF guidelines state that the only players that can be assigned to a specific coach are the coach’s own children. If it is important for your child to be on the same team as another child, you may choose to Volunteer as assistant coach, team manager, team parent or other volunteer opportunities for the team your child desires to be a part of. A popular option is for the parents of two players in the same age division to elect to Volunteer a team together, thereby ensuring that their children will be assigned to the same team for that year. Note that siblings who play in the same age group will be placed on the same team (exceptions may apply).


  • Q: When are games and practices?

     A: That depends on which program and division your child is enrolled.

Rec League Teams: The Saturday game schedules will be posted to your team's  Team Central page before and during the start of the season. 8U-14U have one practice per week starting a few weeks before the first game.

Club League: 10U-12U have one practice per week.  14U-16U-19U divisions may have two practices per week starting a few weeks before the first game. Each team's coaches set their own practice day, time, and location, and will communicate with families after teams are formed in Early February.

High-Performance Program: This program is for youth players that may exhibit a high level of athleticism, advanced skillset, and ability to play hockey at a higher level.  Our High-Performance programs are coached by professionals that have achieved advanced levels of coaching certification. Practices may take place 2-3 days per week, with advanced Club game opportunities, travel play and tournament participation domestically and abroad. Practice and game schedules will be available to invited players.

Q: What if my child can't make it to practice?

Practices are important for your player and the team’s development. Let the coach know if your child will miss a practice or game. If your child will miss all the practices, first talk to the coach.

  • Q: What else does my child need?

A: The Rec League registration fees include complete uniform - jersey, shorts, socks, and supplemental accident insurance.   In addition, you may obtain shoes, shin guards, mouthguard, hockey stick and ball for practice, and a water bottle. Players can wear turf shoes with no spikes or cleats, or any athletic shoes.  Players are required to wear shin guards at all practices and games.

If your child is invited to play on a Club Team, the uniform is not included in the registration fees, and you will purchase the uniform separately.

  • Q: My child really wants to play, but I'm not sure we can afford it?

For families on limited finances, we do offer a small number of scholarships. Please email: [email protected] for details.
