Saint Mary's Point Hockey Association welcomes all girls and boys that either live in or attend school in the ISD834 school boundary.

See below for a summary interpretation of the rule and what it means for playing hockey at Saint Mary's Point.
A player's participation in a specific hockey association is determined by Minnesota Hockey's Participation Rule. In general, youth hockey players must register and participate with the association whose boundaries incorporate the player's residence or the player's school. Under the current rule, players have the option of essentially playing where they live or where they go to school.
SMP is governed by USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey, through an affiliation agreement . In the affiliate agreements, Minnesota Hockey defines the geographical boundaries and jurisdiction of its member hockey associations.
In order for your child to participate on ice at SMP, we are asking that you do the following as soon as possible and before evaluations (if applicable):

Your home association should provide the Waiver form.
