Players

Hockey Alberta’s Mission is to create positive opportunities and experiences FOR ALL PLAYERS through innovative leadership and exceptional service.

Each year, more than 65,000 players take to the ice in Hockey Alberta sanctioned activities. This number includes minor, junior and senior players, competing in male and female divisions, as well as players registered in pond hockey programs across the province. In 2014-15, 3,945 teams were registered with Hockey Alberta.

Hockey Alberta development and training programs for players are based on the components outlined in Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development plan. Hockey Alberta has policies and procedures that have been implemented to ensure that each player experiences the game at an activity level that is appropriate for the player’s age and ability.

For the 2015-16 season, Hockey Alberta is focusing on strategic initiatives in a number of areas, including Initiation Hockey, AA Hockey, and Non-Body Checking Options at the Bantam and Midget divisions.
