2020/2021 Registration is Now Open

Who's excited for hockey season?! WE ARE! We are excited to announce registration is officially open for the WHA Golden Season 2020/21 hockey season. Our board has been busy working behind the scenes to help bring you another great year of hockey while navigating COVID and we thank you for your patience and passion for hockey!

The WHA offers payment plans to help disperse the cost throughout the season, and financial aid is available to qualifying families through the Willmar Hockey Boosters.

Please visit the WHA website for more information and to register today for all WHA programs including Travel Mites through Bantams.  More information regarding the Rec programs will be sent at a later time.

Deadline to register is September 11th - Late registration is subject to a $100 late fee and board approval.

If you are hesitant to register for the hockey season this year, please be assured that if there are cancellations due to COVID restrictions, we will be refunding families on a pro-rated basis for losses to practices or games that cannot be rescheduled.

Due to COVID and supplier issues, we are opening an early Apparel Order for Bauer Warm-Ups, masks and few other fun options.  Another order will open with added clothing options near the Fall Parent Meeting. Please note to ensure timely warm up orders from Bauer, we ask for you to order them now.  We cannot guarantee on time delivery of warmups with the second order option.

The WHA warm-up/early order is OPEN! Including a lot of fun new options for the whole family – hats, tumblers, stocking caps, masks and more! Another order including clothing options for the 50th/Golden Anniversary will be sent out at a later date.

  • Samples available Hansen Advertising in the Cardinal Cabin
  • Find the order on-line at or bop on into the store!
  • The first order closes 9/11
  • All orders will be available for pick up at Hansen Advertising this year.

Whether you're a parent, player, coach, relative or friend, please be sure to choose the applicable level of play for yourself or the player you cheer on in the "Teams" section of the check-out process. This helps us get your order to you!

Additionally, if your son or daughter has outgrown their hockey gear and/or you're looking to get new gear, the WHA recommends the following colors:

  • Gloves: Red/White
  • Helmet: White
  • Breezers: Red

Hockey Zone in St. Cloud carries a nice variety of red gear just for Willmar. They'll also be selling red, custom Willmar gear bags with our new logo.
