Community League 2023-2024
The Community stream is Hockey Calgary's largest stream of hockey.
This program is available for participants ranging from U7 to U18.
There is an "evaluation" process that will place participants on either a tiered (U9 to U18) team or a balanced (U7) team in their division of like-skilled players within their age group. NOTE: in U15 & U18 teams are tiered in each a Body Checking division and a NON-Body Checking division (see below).
The season is structured into a Seeding Round from Oct-Nov and Regular Season from Dec-Mar. All Community teams U11 through U18 participate in City Playoffs in March.
SW U9, U11 (tier 1-5) & U13 - Teams are divided into a North and South Region and SW teams only play in the South Region.
U11 Hockey Alberta Development Plan (U11 HADP) - The SW U11 HADP team plays across the city against all other U11 HADP teams
U11 HYBRID - This means that the participant has the opportunity to play as both a ‘skater’ and a ‘goaltender’. There will be a question on the registration form that asks if your participant is interested in this position. Please review the Hockey Calgary U11 Hybrid Goalie Policy for an overview and expectations of the policy prior to registration. NOTE -- this position pays the "Player" registration fee.
SW U15 & U18 teams will compete against other community hockey teams from across the city. Participants can choose to register to play in a Body Checking or NON-Body Checking Division. Through registration you will select which division the participant wants to evaluate in.
- The Body Checking division has 3 teams that are tiered. There are limited spots and typically we have more participants choose to evaluate in this division. In this case participants who don't successfully evaluate in Body-Checking will continue in evaluations but will be moved to the NON Body Checking division.
- The teams in NON Body Checking are also tiered.
- All Participants will be placed as per their evaluation tryout.
EVALUATIONS / TEAM PLACEMENT
Evaluation Skates: Start in "September & ends early October; based on age groups
Once the evaluation skates have concluded and the team placements have been done you will receive your team information from either your Coach or a TeamSnap invitation.
For assistance about your Team Placement contact your age division coordinator.
Teams are assigned practice ice by Southwest and games by Hockey Calgary. This creates a varied schedule from week to week. Should teams wish to acquire additional practice ice and seek out additional games and tournaments at their own expense, they are free to do so within the guidelines set forth by Hockey Calgary.
When the evaluation process has concluded you will receive an invitation to be added to your team in TeamSnap. Once that is done you will see all your schedule information there.
