Welcome to the Decatur Flames registration system.
Please note there are multiple registration options (teams) below. Review the options carefully to ensure you are selecting the correct program.
Dues have been set for the 2020 season (excluding HS), but costs remain subject to change. Charges up to the following amounts will be applied as mandatory surcharges if restrictions ease:
$75 - Referree costs for games (10U, 12U, 14U)
$40 - Moam participation (10U, 12U, 14U)
$200 - Tourney registrations (10U, 12U, 14U)
$50 - Jamboree registration/hosting (6U, 8U)
$300 - LLHL participation & schedule (HS)
Even with adjustments, the cost for travel teams is still higher than house teams because there are fewer players sharing the same sheet of ice and because there is one additional practice time each week. DYHA must pay the Civic Center for each hour of ice; the shared cost per player for travel teams is higher than for house teams but travel teams provide a higher coach/player ratio and a higher level of specialized training.
Per USAH and AHAI rules, DYHA must hold tryouts and submit travel team rosters just as if it were a normal year -- despite being unable to hold games or travel as of season start. These rosters will be in place and teams will prepare for games should they be able to happen if/when COVID-19 related restrictions ease.
This season will be different from a traditional season. Scrimmages and games may or may not be allowed, parents and fans may or may not be able to be present, and players may be required to get dressed before entering. These regulations are subject to change at any time based on guidance from USA Hockey, AHAI, MOAM, IDPH, or City of Decatur and will be communicated where relevant.
You will be required to sign a waiver before your player is allowed to take the ice.
DYHA registration requires a USA Hockey confirmation number. If you haven't already done so, CLICK HERE to register with USA Hockey before proceeding below. The cost is $46 plus an additional $15 charge for the Illinois Affiliate - AHAI. If your child was born in 2014 or later, the USA hockey fee is waived but registering with USA Hockey is still required.
If you are a returning player, the registration will auto-fill your 2019-2020 USA Hockey (USAH) number when registering for this season. YOU MUST REPLACE THIS WITH THE PLAYER'S VALID 2020-2021(USAH) NUMBER. The registration system will walk you through the steps to obtain this number.
The $50 registration fee is non-refundable and serves as the tryout fee for travel teams. If a player is cut from the travel team, the player may join the Combined House program without paying the $50 registration fee again for that program.
If you are a returning family, you may have account balances from prior seasons or credits earned by working Bingo to apply. Contact the
with any balance inquiries.
Registration at season start includes ten(10) $5 discount cards that you can sell to family, friends, and coworkers to provide discounted goods and services throughout the area. Total value of these cards is $50 and the money you collect from the sale of these is yours to keep.
If you are registering after the season has started, dues will be prorated based on the season's progress but discount cards may not be available/included.
Decatur "home ice" will be installed October 2, 2020 through March 7, 2021. (subject to change)
