Player division is by year of birth. This applies city-wide with no exceptions.
These are our 17/18 Registration Fees. The Community Stream fees have increased by 3% to 4% due to an increase in ice and referee rates imposed on us. Crowfoot Hockey will be providing these items to our community stream players: Team Snap, ePACT online medical form and game socks. Crowfoot Hockey prides itself in having one of the lowest fee rates in the City.

Evaluations for this age group will begin at the end of September, with set drop-in conditioning times available earlier in September. Teams will be finalized by mid-October. Hockey Calgary has removed body-checking in Bantam and Midget Division 4 and below. As part of the registration process, all players will be asked if they prefer to play in a non-checking divison.
If a child is new to hockey or from a hockey community outside of Calgary, a copy of the birth certificate is required to be mailed or dropped off to the administration office at Crowfoot Arena. There is a blue drop off ox in the Crowfoot Arena lobby. The Crowfoot Arena is attached to the Crowfoot YMCA.
Players aged Atom and higher can indicate their preference to play goal and will be evaluated as such (full goalie gear is required). We will make every effort to accommodate all goaltenders, though we cannot guarantee your child will play this position within our Association. The number of teams established in the division will determine the number of goalies required. Please contact our goalie coordinator if you have further questions at email@example.com.
Crowfoot Hockey would like to thank all volunteers for your dedication in the 2017/18 season and we hope your enthusiasm brings you back for the upcoming year. The success of the Crowfoot Hockey Association is only a result of its devoted volunteers.
