Female Alberta Development Model

Female Athlete Development Model >

The Female Hockey Alberta Development Model (ADM) has been finalized for the 2016-17 season.

The ADM outlines the rules, regulations and operating procedures for all Female AAA and Elite hockey in Alberta. It also includes key dates and deadlines for player movement applications, tryouts, affiliations and registration.

Local Minor Hockey Associations (LMHAs) hosting teams within the Female Hockey ADM have been confirmed, and have started the planning process for the upcoming season. There are no boundaries for Midget AAA, while each Midget and Bantam Elite centre has a defined recruitment area.
