How many games can a spare play?
Spares must be registered with CARHA Hockey and are only permitted to play five (5) games or less before they are required to submit membership fees.
How many spares can we have on our team?
Although membership fees do not apply to spare players, coverage is extended to these players under the team or league's umbrella. Each team is permitted to carry one (1) spare for every five (5) "paid" players.
What is a confirmation report?
A confirmation report is your official CARHA Hockey receipt and roster. This report will tell you exactly who is registered to your team, if they are a spare, recurring or regular player, and it will give you an account summary of the membership fees received.
What is a "recur" player?
A "recur" player is one who plays for more than one (1) CARHA Hockey registered team. CARHA Hockey only requires players who play on multiple teams to pay membership once. For each consecutive team that they are added to, they will be marked as a "recur" player and those teams will not be charged for their membership. It is up to the Team Reps to ensure that their "recur" players are in fact officially registered to their original teams before submitting the roster. If not, that team will be responsible for the player's membership fees.
How do I verify if this player is registered to another team or not?
We make it easy for you! If you are not sure if a player is registered to an existing team, please contact our office and we will verify they player's status for you.
What is an illegal line-up?
An illegal-line-up means you have surpassed the permitted number of spares you can carry on a team. If a team has exceeded the permitted one (1) spare for every five (5) "paid" players ratio, then their roster will appear as an "illegal line-up". Should you have too many spares on your roster, please contact our office in order to make the appropriate adjustments.
