Hello Hockey Families,
Please take a minute to review the Return to Play Plan as released by Hockey Alberta. They have 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, which was released on June 30, 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.
Hockey Alberta has worked with Hockey Canada and other provincial branches, Government of Alberta, Provincial Sport Organizations, and our Members, staff and volunteers to develop Alberta’s Return to Hockey Plan. The purpose of the Return to Hockey plan is to provide options for a restart to hockey in Alberta, to outline required safety protocols and requirements, and to assist our Members with tasks they need to be undertaking for hockey to re-start.
The Return to Hockey Plan meets the current health and safety requirements of the Government of Alberta and aligns with Hockey Canada’s Return to Hockey Safety Guidelines in focusing on the safety and well-being of all participants. Updated versions of the Plan will be circulated to Hockey Alberta Members, and posted to this webpage, as required based on changes to the Government of Alberta’s Relaunch Plan.
In regards to registration for this season, please make sure that your Respect in Sport certificate is up to date as registration cannot be completed without a valid certificate (our system will check for validity at time of registration). You can check your certificate number and expiry date at https://www.hockeyalberta.
You will receive an email once registration is live with instructions for registration - we are anticipating later this week to have it opened up. New this season, HMHA will now be accepting e-transfers for payment and we are still accepting Visa/Mastercard as payments. No cheques will be accepted.
We will keep you up to date as information becomes available. Take care and stay safe.
