SUBJECT: Hockey Canada Regulation Update – Non-Canadian Player Registration

Hockey Canada has recently updated their regulations, there is an important change regarding the registration of Non-Canadian players at Hockey Canada Sports Schools.

Hockey Canada Regulation H4b

b) A Minor Player transferring without his Parent(s) from another Federation in order to attend school within a Member may be deemed eligible to register in that Member on a House League Team or Hockey Canada Sports School Team without an appeal to the National Appeals Committee under the following conditions:

i) Such Player will not be eligible to register with or Affiliate to a higher Category/Division Team except as described in Regulation F.14.

ii) It shall be the responsibility of the registrar of the Player’s new Member to ensure, by statement or otherwise, that the Player is qualified under this regulation; and

iii) All applicable transfer fees are due to Hockey Canada at the time of registration with the Member

Starting in the 2018-2019 season these players will no longer require appeals to participate with a Hockey Canada Sports School. Players from outside of Canada will still require either a Minor USA transfer or a Minor International transfer. The appeal fee and appeal renewal fees will no longer apply. The transfer criteria is as following:

USA Players

  1. US to Canada Letter of Approval for Minor
  2. Declaration of Residence Move without Parent Form
  3. Out of Country Primary Medical Waiver
  4. Photocopy of Passport
  5. School Registration
