RED DEER - Registration is now open for 2003-born male athletes to take part in zone selection camps for the 2018 Alberta Cup.
The 2018 Alberta Cup runs April 25-29 in Spruce Grove.
All zone camps will take place March 23-25 at the following locations (dates and locations subject to change):
Calgary North and South - East Calgary Twin Arenas
Central - Blackfalds Multiplex
Edmonton - Jubilee Recreation Centre (Fort Saskatchewan)
Northeast - Vegreville Recreation Centre

The deadline to register is Friday, March 2 at 4:00 p.m. *Reminder, spots at each camp are limited*
Please note: The zone boundaries have been re-aligned for the 2018 Alberta Cup, to more closely coincide with the Male Alberta Development Model. Please review the revised zone boundary directory, as players will now attend the appropriate camp based on where they would attend their first tryout for Bantam AAA, unless otherwise indicated. Entire Minor Hockey Associations are within a specific Alberta Cup zone and not split. If you have any questions on the zone boundary changes, please contact Dustin Moore at email@example.com before registering for a zone camp.
2018 Alberta Cup staff announced
Hockey Alberta is pleased to announce the staff for each team competing in the 2018 Alberta Cup. A director of operations, coach mentor, head coach, two assistant coaches, and one trainer were selected for each of the eight zone teams.
The Alberta Cup aids in the identification and selection of potential players for Hockey Alberta’s Team Alberta program, with more than 700 players annually trying out for 160 spots (20 positions on each of the eight zone teams).
The Alberta Cup is a comprehensive and unique program, and an absolute grassroots program where every bantam-aged player, regardless of experience or community size, has the opportunity to try out for his Zone team.
In addition to player development, the Alberta Cup also features opportunities for administrators, referees, coaches, therapists and equipment managers to be identified for potential positions at higher level events, such as the World U17 Hockey Challenge and Canada Winter Games.
All Athletes will respect, uphold and embrace:
- The guiding principle of "Professionalism" in that they treat all team staff members, officials, opponents, peers, administrators and all others in which they come in contact, with respect and dignity while involved in Hockey Alberta development programs
- The principles of fair play, safety and respect towards other athletes and recognize that fighting, verbal abuse, and checking from behind will NOT be tolerated, and may jeopardize further participation in Hockey Alberta development programs
- The spirit of competition in which athletes are expected to compete hard and fair and NEVER compromise the safety of another individual
- That winning is secondary, and that having fun, improving skills, making friends and doing your best are the primary goals
- That team staff members and officials are there to help you and will accept their decisions and show them respect
- The rules, bylaws and regulations of Hockey Alberta, and suspensions incurred in any Hockey Alberta Development Program will carry into the club system, as per Hockey Alberta Minimum Suspension Guidelines
- Specific rules and codes of conducts agreed upon by specific teams while involved in Hockey Alberta’s Development Programs
- Responsibility for all their own personal items.
