COVID-19 and MHC membership

If you purchased a Recreation membership prior to Competitions being approved, you can now upgrade to your full membership online for $22 ($11 for Youth)  - the combined dollar value of the Recreation membership and the upgrade is the same as purchasing the Adult or Youth Competitive membership from the outset. 

New for 2020 is:

  • An option to decline answering the Male/Female question.
  • A place to note whether you are a coach or an official, and which MHC Member Clubs you will be joining during 2020.
  • Only one email address will be required.

We do note that many addresses in the Oakbank/Dugald/Springfield areas changed during 2019. Please remember to make the necessary updates.

Also, please check whether your cellphone number and/or landline number are recorded in the correct slot. We noted during 2019 that some of these flipped as a result of a computer glitch.
