Return to Hockey
We are excited for the return to hockey! The Executive Board has been working hard behind the scenes incorporating the new protocols to ensure a safe return to hockey. We have created this page to ensure our members are aware of important information as it relates to the return to hockey plans provided by Hockey Alberta.
We will be providing further information specific to our Summer Camps, Player Evaluations, and the beginning of the season as the return to hockey plans develop. We will have a number of new processes such as; roles and responsibilities, parent meetings, team meetings, developing cohorts, how to arrive and leave the arenas, hygiene, how to clean equipment between ice times, screening, contact tracing, as well as other safety protocols.
Updates will be posted to our website as well as via email to our members.
We would like to remind you that our registration is open. We encourage you to register soon as it will assist in planning all the activities so we are ready to go when the season officially begins. This year, we are asking for a $50 deposit to register and have introduced additional affordable payment plans. All registration fees are refundable up until your player steps on the ice.
While it will be different this year, our goal is to make the return to hockey safe and enjoyable for our players and families.
Hockey Alberta’s Return to Hockey Plan
Hockey Alberta has completed a Return to Hockey Plan that incorporates the current requirements outlined in Stage 2 of the Government of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan, health and safety guidelines from Hockey Canada, and programming, registration and sanctioning for Hockey Alberta.
The plan provides the framework and minimum standards for Hockey Alberta’s Members to undertake hockey activities. It also allows players, coaches, officials, parents and other stakeholders to understand the current guidelines for operating sanctioned hockey for the 2020-21 season.
The Return to Hockey Plan and its appendices, along with other announcements and documents pertaining to COVID-19 and hockey in Alberta can be reviewed on the Hockey Alberta website.
