2020 Provincial Championship Trial

RED DEER - During the 2018-19 hockey season, Hockey Alberta completed a trial project at the Peewee division to implement, test and review a new Provincial Championship Model under the Alberta One initiative. Under this trial, the previous Peewee A-D Provincial Championships transitioned to Peewee Tiers 1-4, with teams qualifying as League Champions from six Minor Leagues/organizations.

Representatives from Hockey Alberta’s Minor Regulations and Minor Leagues Committees have reviewed the data and feedback from the trial project in order to make the most informed decision going in to the 2020 Provincial Championships.

Committee members believe the trial project was successful in laying the foundation for the possible Provincial Championship structure of the future. However, it was agreed that one season is not enough to make a final decision related to the Provincial Championship structure.

Therefore, based on the review of the 2019 Peewee division trial project and taking into consideration results at the Bantam and Midget Zone Provincial Playdowns and Provincial Championships, which saw teams categorized based off league play, tiering, tournament and exhibition play through Minor Regulation 9.1 (c), it has been unanimously agreed to extend and amend the Provincial Championship Trial Project for the 2019-2020 season.

Under the revised trial project, the previous A-D Provincial Championships at the Peewee, Bantam and Midget divisions will move into Tiers 1-4. Teams will not participate in Zone Playdowns, but will instead qualify 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

The Bantam Tiers 1-4 Provincial Championship Tournaments will take place on the weekend of March 19-22, 2020, while the Peewee and Midget Tiers 1-4 Provincial Championship Tournaments will happen on the weekend of March 26-29, 2020.

The events will consist of eight teams comprised of the league winners from the six above mentioned leagues/ organizations, one host team and one league runner-up that will be identified as a wild card team by the Minor Regulations and Minor Leagues Committees. Leagues/organizations will be scheduling play to ensure that league champions are determined no later than Sunday, March 8 (Bantam) and Sunday, March 15 (Peewee and Midget).

Provincial Championships at the Atom division will remain unchanged from past seasons. Minor Hockey Associations will declare their teams by December 1 with Zone Playdowns commencing in January.

BULLETIN 18:14 - 2020 Provincial Championship Trial Project

If you have any questions regarding the 2020 Provincial Championship Trial Project, please contact either your Zone Minor Regulations Coordinator or Bryden Burrell, Coordinator of Hockey Programs (bburrell@hockeyalberta.ca).

2019 Alberta Challenge kicks off in Leduc

LEDUC - For 120 female athletes from across Alberta, the next several days of competition will mark a significant milestone in their young hockey careers.

These athletes, born in 2004-05, have been named to the rosters of the six teams that will compete in Hockey Alberta’s 2019 Alberta Challenge, May 2-5 at the Leduc Recreation Centre.

The Alberta Challenge is held alternating years opposite of the Alberta Winter Games, with three teams selected to represent the North, and three to represent the South. The players were selected from approximately 300 who attended regional camps held April 5-7 in Cochrane and Fort Saskatchewan. Twenty athletes comprise each roster, along with volunteers serving as head coach, assistant coaches, coach mentor, trainer, and director of operations. The Challenge is also part of the development process for female on-ice officials across the province.

Rosters >

In addition to pursuing the Challenge, the athletes are also vying for a spot at the U16 Female Summer Camp, held July 11-14 in Red Deer, and is one of the stages in the identification and selection process for the Team Alberta U18 program.

“Leduc will play host to some of the top young female athletes in the province, and spectators will definitely be impressed by their talent,” said Taryn Baumgardt, Hockey Alberta’s Coordinator of Female Hockey. “For the players, the Alberta Challenge is a great opportunity to measure themselves against others in the province, as well as receive instruction from elite caliber coaches.”

The teams play a modified round-robin competition. Preliminary round action gets underway on Thursday at 4 pm, with three games. There will be six games on Friday, starting at 8:30 am. On Saturday, preliminary action finishes, with three games, starting at 10 am. The tournament concludes on Sunday with the championship game set for 2:30 pm.

A total of seven Albertans were taken in the first round of the WHL Bantam Draft, with Albertans selected with four of the top five picks.

St. Albert Slash win third straight Esso Cup

SUDBURY, ON. - A year after becoming the first team to repeat as Esso Cup champions, the St. Albert Slash have made history again, by becoming the first team to win Canada’s National Female Midget Championship three straight years after a 4-1 victory over the host Sudbury Lady Wolves.

“Unbelievable. Surreal.” St. Albert Slash head coach Dan Auchenberg said of his team after the game. “They don’t even know what they just did, three straight Esso Cups. That’s unheard of.”

The Slash finished the preliminary round with a 2-0-1-2 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record before Madison Willan scored the overtime winner to defeat the Saskatoon Stars 2-1 in their semifinal.

Down by a goal after 20 minutes Saturday, goals from Taylor Anker (Sherwood Park, Alta.) and Mackenzie Kordic (Edmonton, Alta.) put St. Albert up heading to the third period. Kordic added a second goal on the power play, and Dayle Ross (Spirit River, Alta.) sealed the deal with an empty-netter with 40 seconds left. Slash goalie Brianna Sank made 33 saves in the victory.

Jaden Bogden, Isabelle Lajoie, and Brooklyn Schroeder cap off their terrific season by adding this Esso Cup championship to the gold medal they each won as a member of Team Alberta U18 Female at the Canada Winter Games, held in Red Deer in February.

Anker, Lajoie, Sank, Makenna Schuttler, and Willan have been on the team for all three Esso Cup Championships.

Joel Ward (centre), RDC President and CEO, receives a special Hockey Alberta jersey from Rob Litwinski, Hockey Alberta CEO and Terry Engen, Hockey Alberta Board Chair.


Celebration honours long-time partner of RDC

Hockey Alberta

RED DEER - Red Deer College honoured its longtime partner Hockey Alberta this afternoon in the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre/Centre des Jeux du Canada at a celebration recognizing Hockey Alberta’s $1.5 million donation toward building the facility.

The Centre is now the home of Hockey Alberta’s head office and provincial training centre, and the site of conferences, competitions and training events for many of the programs the organization coordinates including the Alberta Cup this weekend, featuring the top bantam-aged players in the province.

The partnership between these two organizations began with a Charter in 2011, when Hockey Alberta moved its head office onto RDC’s Main Campus. The partnership has allowed both organizations to increase the ways they serve Albertans through collaboration. The partnership also allowed RDC and Hockey Alberta to pursue a new facility to support the development of the sport, a vision which contributed significantly to the planning and execution of the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

“While this facility is home for Hockey Alberta’s head office and is a tremendous addition to central Alberta, Hockey Alberta’s vision is to use it as a central hub for hockey in the province,” said Rob Litwinski, CEO of Hockey Alberta. “This long-term strategy for Hockey Alberta has always been about more than the facility. It has been about having a centre where Hockey Alberta could operate its many programs and events in a central location.”

Since its opening in the fall, Hockey Alberta has hosted thousands of coaches, officials, volunteers, administrators and players from around the province for various programs, training seminars, events. “We believe this is only the start as Hockey Alberta adds more of its own programming and events in Red Deer, and pursues hosting National and International events,” says Litwinski. “The decision to make an investment into the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre was based on a business model which will allow Hockey Alberta to enhance its opportunity to diversify its revenue with added programs, events, brand growth and partnerships.”

Creating this competition and training space as a part of RDC’s significant infrastructure development project provides an unparalleled opportunity for athletes at all levels. Hockey Alberta accesses the fitness zone along with boardrooms, classrooms, gymnasium, residence and arena facilities for its wide array of off-ice and on-ice development programming for coaches, administrators, and officials. This includes Hockey Alberta’s Leadership Development Weekend in June for coaches, mentors, and development directors.

Hockey Alberta’s presence on campus creates enhanced practicum and field placement opportunities for RDC students from a leadership, business or sports perspective, as well as collaborative programming opportunities in these areas. In this way, the unique collaboration provides opportunities for current as well as future learners.

“Hockey Alberta is a true partner,” says Joel Ward, RDC President and CEO. “We’ve shared the vision for developing leaders in our region - through education and through sport - for a long time, and we’re dedicated to helping each other serve these needs in our community.”

The generous donation from Hockey Alberta was key to construction of the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre, and the unique, collaborative partnership is critical to the way that RDC can support the learning needs of Albertans. “As we look toward becoming Red Deer University, we’re proud of the practical, applied learning opportunities that our partnerships help us provide, opportunities which further set us apart as a leader in innovative approaches to learning,” says Ward. “In addition to the practicum and placement opportunities, having Hockey Alberta located in our new Centre will further blur the line between learning and work experience, seamlessly transitioning our business and sport studies students into careers in industry.”

Coach of the Month - March

RED DEER - Hockey Alberta’s March Coach of the Month, sponsored by Players Bench Team Apparel recipients are Chris Overwater of Olds and Dave Shaw of Sherwood Park.

Both coaches were selected from all of the Coach of the Month applications received by Hockey Alberta throughout the 2018-19 Minor Hockey season. Chris and Dave will receive a pair of tickets to see the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers, respectively.


Chris Overwater served as both the Head Coach of the Bantam AA Grizzlys and the Atom B Grizzlys in Olds. He’s been coaching hockey in Olds for six years, and also coaches baseball during the summer months.

"As a coach, Chris is open and honest with parents and treats each child on his team with high, but fair, expectations," said the parent who nominated Chris. "While on the bench, Chris presents with a high level of professionalism and is respectful of the officials and rules of the game. As a parent, I’ve watched my child grow tremendously under his tutelage. My child’s understanding and enjoyment of game play has developed to such an extent that there is time spent at home by my child enthusiastically re-enacting practice drills on pen and paper. When an eleven-year-old child is able to recognize their own growth in a season and associate their development with a particular coach, then you know that coach has done an exceptional job."

"He is a great family man, and family is very important to him. This shows in his approach to coaching as he cares for each and every player, coach and parent on the team," said Olds Minor Hockey President Jeff Latimer. "Chris is a student of the game, and is always trying to learn how to do better, to be better, to help develop every player. His knowledge of the game is remarkable."

"I enjoy coaching because of the athletes. Watching players improve and enjoy the sport is the best part of being able to coach," said Chris. "My coaching philosophy is to make each player better everyday. The focus on individual skill gives players the confidence to become better athletes. Team skills make players develop hockey IQ so they think the game better."

Chris will receive an award pack from Hockey Alberta and Players Bench which includes the tickets to a Flames game.


Dave Shaw is the Head Coach of the Sherwood Park Atom Tier 1 Arrows. He’s been coaching for seven years, and also coaches Lacrosse.

"Dave has not only provided leadership on the bench, but off the bench as well," said the parent who nominated Dave. "Throughout the season, Dave has created many opportunities for the kids to give back to our community. Dave has taught these boys how to show respect for others and to help people when in need. Coach Dave is an amazing coach and my son says that this is the best year of hockey he has had."

Dave, along with his wife, Erin, received the 2019 ’Sportsmen of the Year’ award from the Sherwood Park Minor Hockey Association.

"When I took the role of President of SPMHA this season, I had three distinct areas of focus. Those areas included Coach development, player development and community presence," said SPMHA President Elton Davidge. "This year’s Sportsman of the Year recipients obviously came into the season with the same objectives. Without suggestion from the Executive, this couple took an immediate leadership role with the intent of developing not just hockey players, but leaders in our community. They consistently promoted integration into the community and it reflected strongly in the team. The kids are not only being coached to make great plays in hockey, but through the efforts of Dave and Erin, they are learning life lessons, such as selflessness and the importance of giving back to our community. They are also learning what it means to be a “teammate” in a locker room of friends."

"The thing I enjoy most about coaching is being directly involved with the growth and development of our young athletes both on and off the ice. I love being able to share my knowledge of the sport and give the kids the structure and support for them to all grow and be successful," said Dave. "My coaching philosophy is to focus on things we can control and change moving forward. While learning lessons from our past, we continue on our path, working towards both short term and long term goals. I strive to use sports as a great way to develop long term athletes and also to help our youth become outstanding citizens and role models in their communities."

Dave will receive an award pack from Hockey Alberta and Players Bench which includes the tickets to an Oilers game.

As Rich Valley puts it, the hockey arena is the life-blood of their community. In the fall of 2018, they had a catastrophic failure in their ice chiller that ended the season before it even started. There were no more weekly free-skate nights and no minor hockey associations in the area could practice or play. It meant either driving 30km or more to join other communities for the 2018-2019 season, or simply not playing at all.

Your votes mean they could win the grand prize - the opportunity to host an NHL® Pre-Season game in their community and $250,000 in arena upgrades, bringing hockey back to Rich Valley.
