North West Zone Hockey Association & Canadian Athletic Club


On behalf of the North West Zone Hockey Association and the Canadian Athletic Club Boards

of Directors, we are pleased to announce that, effective the 2018/19 Edmonton Federation

Hockey League (EFHL) season, the NWZ Peewee AA program will be transitioned to CAC. NWZ

and CAC together believe that this change will provide qualifying players with a program best

suited to AA level player development. The Peewee AA teams will remain in the Edmonton

Federation Hockey League and continue to be governed by Hockey Edmonton. The number

of CAC Peewee AA teams will continue to be set by Hockey Edmonton based on the number

of eligible players within our draw zone. For 2018/19, there will again be 3 balanced Peewee

AA teams from the NWZ/CAC draw zone.


CAC and NWZ will work together to ensure the CAC Peewee AA program offers Peewee players

and their parents the best possible development while keeping costs reasonable. Some of the

benefits of moving Peewee AA to CAC include improved access to off-ice training facilities,

consistent additional ice scheduling and a coach/player development program that prepares

individuals for the Bantam AA/AAA programs that they hope to be members of in the future.

CAC will provide details regarding the Peewee AA tryouts and teams in the near future. All

Peewee aged players living within the NWZ/CAC draw zone who wish to try out for Peewee

AA will need to register for the CAC tryouts. Peewee players choosing not to try out for AA

should register directly with their home Operating Areas (Hawks Athletic Club or Whitemud

West Hockey Association). Players who try out for CAC Peewee AA but are released will return

to their home Operating Areas.


Additional details about this change and the CAC Peewee AA Program and teams will be

provided throughout the spring and summer by CAC. We are confident that this change will

be in the best interest of our Peewee AA players and their parents. If you have related

questions or concerns please contact:
