Pond Hockey is an innovative program that focuses on participation in a less structured and flexible environment. Pond Hockey:
- is registered under Hockey Alberta, allowing all participants to access the Hockey Canada Insurance Program. All other registration fees are determined by each specific Pond Hockey Program.
- is not governed by Association boundaries that state a player has to report to a specific Program.
- participants are eligible to register and participate with any Pond Hockey Program in Alberta.
- focuses on providing a fun, safe and non-competitive learning environment for all participants regardless of age or skill.
