Provincial Championships Trial Project
Hockey Alberta, in a continuing our collaboration with our Minor Hockey Leagues, has been reviewing the structure and format of the Hockey Alberta Provincial Championships to ensure they remain the pinnacle event of the hockey season.
During the 2018-19 season, Hockey Alberta undertook a trial project to implement, test and review a possible Provincial Championship Model under the Alberta One Initiative. Under this trial project, the previous Peewee A – D Provincial Championships transitioned to Peewee Tiers 1 – 4. Teams did not participate in Zone Playdowns, qualifying for the Provincial Championships as League Champions from the following leagues/ organizations:
- Hockey Calgary
- Hockey Edmonton
- Central Alberta Hockey League
- Northern Alberta Interlock
- All Peace Hockey League
- North Eastern Alberta Hockey League
Each event featured eight teams comprised of the six league winners, one host team and one league runner-up identified as a wild card team by the Minor Regulations and Minor Leagues Committees.
