Do I need to keep a receipt?
If your child is under 16 years of age on January 1, 2016 you may qualify for the Child Fitness Tax Rebate, and accordingly you should print and retain your "Receipt of Registration" email for both the 2016-2017 season registration and any Academy enrolments for your 2016 tax return.
Official tax deductible receipts can be printed from your online Power Up account when the appropriate season receipts are released (prior to February 28th) by the Registrar.For more info about tax receipts, visit the CRA website here.
Do I need to register by a certain date?
Yes, only those players who register by May 15th will be placed on a team in the pre-determined order of registration (subject to Coach availability). After May 15th, a non-refundable late fee of $50.00 applies, and team placement is not assured.

If we cannot place a waitlisted player on a team by the start of the season, we will confirm with you and reimburse any fees paid.
