Player Registration FAQ
How Do I Register?
Every Community District in Calgary is designated to a Hockey Calgary Community Hockey Association. If you do not know which Association you belong to please refer to the Calgary Association List. The List contains the names of each Hockey Calgary Community Association along with the Community Districts that are designated to it and the Association website. Click here for the Calgary Association List.
Each Association webpage will detail their registration process (in most cases an online process). If you have any questions a registration contact should be present on the webpage. Alternatively, you can contact the Hockey Calgary office and we would be happy to assit you. Contact Hockey Calgary
Do players have to register with their designated Hockey Association?
If a player wishes to register with a Hockey Association other than their designated Association they must complete the Release Request form available under the Forms button. Requests are considered based on the Release Criteria described in the Hockey Calgary Operations Manual available under the Operations button. Players are not eligible to register at their preferred Association without notiifcation from the Hockey Calgary Registrar that their release has been approved.

Do players have to register within the proper age category?
Hockey Canada does permit overage players but only under very specific conditions. It should be noted the instance of Overage Status is more prevalent in rural leagues - the number of teams and divisions in the Calgary leagues provide a better opportunity for beginner players or those with limited skill to participate within their proper age category. On average, Hockey Calgary approves one (1) or two (2) overage players every season, generally for health related reasons. For more information go to the Hockey Calgary's Operations Manual under the Operations button.
