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 is enclosed with this Bulletin. The 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:
The plan was compiled by a Return to Hockey committee that included senior leaders at Hockey Alberta and representatives from eight Minor Hockey Associations across the province, along with input from other members and leagues who participated in a town hall meeting in mid-June.
The health and safety of all participants in the sport is of paramount importance in all activities outlined in the Return to Hockey Plan. The threats and challenges posed by COVID-19 require specific steps to be taken to allow hockey back on the ice, and this plan addresses those requirements.
The Return to Hockey Plan - including the timelines included within it - is subject to change, as new guidelines and requirements are put in place by the Government of Alberta.
