Our goal for your hockey player is that s/he wants to experience HOCKEY FOR LIFE; with a focus on a fun and positive experience and development of skills both on the ice and outside the game.

To help achieve these goals, Hockey Alberta:

  • Instructs and follows the best practices in coaching and established sport science for creating the best hockey experience possible.
  • Adjusts competition formats and training to best serve the capacities and developmental needs of children.
  • Understands that player development, is a long-term process and it takes time.
  • Focuses on fun and skill development in the early years for our players.
  • Offers skill development camps for athletes of all ages and abilities throughout the year.

A key aspect of supporting our athletes is providing resources and support for parents across the province.
