WMHA Waiver

  1. I, the applicant, certify the information on the on line registration form to be true and consent to the Player participating in the hockey program of the WALDEN MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION (hereafter will be noted as WMHA).

I am aware that copies of these rules and regulations are available from the WMHA upon request.

These activities include use of gymnasium facilities for dry-land training activities and recreational sports such as floor hockey. Other activities may include team parties and/or road hockey.
