For the 2018-19 season, Hockey Alberta is implementing a fully online registration and payment process for clinics that also requires ALL adult officials (19 years and older) to have a current Criminal Record Check (CRC) on file as a prerequisite to being allowed to register for a clinic.
Adult officials must complete a CRC every three seasons, as per Hockey Alberta’s policy. The CRC requirement has been in place for three seasons; therefore, officials who completed a CRC in that initial season will need to complete the CRC process again this year.
CRCs are accepted only through the online platform of Sterling Talent Solutions. Once received by Hockey Alberta, it may take up to a week for HCR to be updated; therefore, officials are advised to complete the CRC process as soon as possible.
Clinic listings and registration links go live on the Hockey Alberta website on August 7. The deadline to register for a clinic is 10 days prior to the clinic date, to allow for materials to be shipped to instructors. Registration and payment for a clinic must be done online, with payment only accepted via Mastercard or Visa (no debit or prepaid credit cards allowed).
For new officials, the requirement to complete Hockey University (HU – ONLINE OFFICIATING 1/2) prior to attending a clinic remains in place. This will require a new official to set up an eHockey account if the individual does not already have one.
