Recreational Hockey Model
Starting in the 2021-22 season, Hockey Alberta is implementing a new Recreational Hockey Model that provides interested participants with a moderately structured stream of hockey with some modified playing rules, limited registration rules, and no residency requirements.
Hockey Alberta’s Recreational Hockey Model provides general structural and administrative guidelines for Recreational Hockey Programs across the province and outlines the activity options that member Minor Hockey Associations and partner organizations can implement within their communities
The goal of the Recreational Hockey Model is to ensure families have access to affordable, fun, and safe opportunities to participate in youth hockey with a low to moderate time commitment. The Recreational Hockey Model is open to both Minor Hockey Associations and community/ non-minor hockey programs.
The Recreational Hockey Model includes three streams of hockey. Each stream has a varying competitive structure and level of commitment appropriate to the level(s) and age(s) of the player(s).
Within the Recreational Hockey Model are several recommendations on how organizations / programs should operate and structure their program; however, organizations/ programs are provided the flexibility to create and maintain their own internal processes to adjust their program to the needs of their participants.
