Hockey Canada has always had an interest in improving the game across all levels in Canada. With our organization we will offer all the following advantages while avoiding the disadvantages that are associated with unregistered leagues or teams. Below you will find some of the main benefits that Hockey Canada will offer your league.
One of the great advantages of this program is the association that your league will have with Hockey Canada, which governs all other leagues across the country. It will be an association with the governing body that trains and selects all national teams, and will unite you with league and teams across the country, which includes more than 40,000 registered adult players, including females.
Hockey Canada will also provide members with sanctioned events through the International Ice Hockey Federation. This will provide for worldwide competition for Canadian adult recreational teams. Hockey Canada can also use its IIHF contacts (which include every hockey federation in the world) to advertise major events and help facilitate the play of Canadian teams outside of Canada.
Hockey Canada Adult Recreational Program will be using hockeycanada.ca as the central location for information, contests, league statistics, links, insurance forms and all your other needs. On the website members will be able to:
• find information about the program, its benefits and how to register your league or team
• find info on other leagues as well as links to registered leagues websites across Canada
• access stats pages
• vies the Hockey Canada Adult Recreational photo gallery
• link to sponsors and their contests
• find all forms necessary to register your team, or make an insurance claim
Hockey Canada is now offering great insurance rates/apparel packages for outside adult recreation tournaments looking to have their events sanctioned by Hockey Canada. Being part of Hockey Canada’s adult recreational program will also allow you to participate in international tournaments hosted by IIHF member federations. This is definitely an opportunity for teams to get an international experience and play top adult recreational teams from around the world.
