NAVIGATING THE SYSTEM

Head Coach

Overview

In minor hockey governing bodies exist to ensure consistency for player safety, game rules, tournaments, officiating and more.  While Hockey Canada and USA Hockey are the major national bodies in each respective country, surprisingly not all youth hockey organizations fall into these systems and moving around between them or within their memberships is less child-centric than one would like to admit.

Hockey Canada consists of numerous provincial bodies and associated minor hockey associations…

    • Hockey Canada
    • Provincial/Regional Branches
    • Where can my child play? (Regional rules)
