THERE ARE CHANGES TO THE ANNUAL CAHA MEMBER ASSOCIATION PROCESS!

Note: These are not per athlete fees paid by individual rostered athletes; these are Member Association fees.

Annual Renewals: Each CAHA member association is required to pay an annual membership renewal fee, and any per team fees, between July and August 31 of each year. CAHA is partnered with Rocky Mountain Registry for annual membership renewals. There is a step by step user guide available here: RMR registration instructions_2019-2020.pdf

CHANGES EFFECTIVE WITH THE 2019-2020 SEASON:

When you log in to Rocky Mountain Registry to renew your annual CAHA membership and pay your fees you will see revised conditions of participation. This is a new requirement of all affiliate members of USA Hockey, and membership cannot be completed without it.
The agreement basically states the following conditions:

•   All administrators and volunteers of a program (any coach, manager, volunteer, trainer, board member, administrator, etc. i.e. “anyone performing a designated role in a youth sports organization with access to minor athletes”) – must be background screened and SafeSport trained prior to participation.
•   The member program assumes all responsibility for all adult participants, and will be held liable should any adult participant not be screened or SafeSport certified prior to participation in a member program.
•   The member program must certify the eligibility of their adult members on or before September 1st annually, including submittal of a list of the Board of Directors and any other elected or designates positions at that time, to the state affiliate (CAHA) Director Member Services (cahajaime@gmail.com).
•   In CAHA, this membership agreement with USA Hockey is acknowledged through the annual membership registration process, in the Rocky Mountain Registry system.

Please note: In prior years the annual member registration deadline was often extended by CAHA – that is no longer an option. The hard deadline is September 1, 2019 – this is a USA Hockey deadline, and any member program not renewed by that date will not be considered eligible by USA Hockey. There will be no grace period to meet this requirement. This applies to ALL YOUTH PROGRAMS – Travel, In-House, Girls, High School – any program using a CAHA number to roster teams and claiming membership in USA Hockey must comply.

The text of the new required acknowledgement is attached for your information. You do not sign and return this - you acknowledge it online when you renew your membership on the Rocky Mountain Registry site: https://rockymountainregister.com/enroll/usah-caha/login.asp?programid=1

NEW ASSOCIATION MEMBER REQUESTS:
New membership requests cannot be made online. An organization requesting new CAHA membership needs to send an email to: CAHAmembership@gmail.com. An application and criteria for membership will be provided, and each request is reviewed on a case by case basis.

Payment: ONLY ONLINE PAYMENT IS ACCEPTED. Payment through Rocky Mountain Registry is required. Checks cannot be accepted.
