Registration/Equipment Handout Frequently Asked Questions

How can I register?
The first step of the process is registering your child/children. There are two options available:

  1. Register On-Line: This is the simplest and easiest way to pre-register your child/children for Hockey in New Jersey. All registration forms are available online and can be completed with a few clicks of a button. By pre-registering online, your online Sports Engine account joins the HNJ network to receive updates on programming and events.
  2. Register In-Person: Available at each equipment handout, you can fill out the forms in person.

How long does the Equipment Registration last?
Hockey in New Jersey schedules Registration/Equipment Handouts to outfit participants in hockey gear from head to toe. This process typically takes between 30-45 minutes per player. By registering online prior to the Registration/Equipment Handout, this allows your child/children to get outfitted quicker.
