Administration - Bulletin Details
ISSUE #:      2019-027
October 3, 2019
TO: BC Hockey Membership
FROM: Barry Petrachenko
Chief Executive Officer

SUBJECT: Non-Sanctioned Leagues Operating Outside the Auspices of Hockey Canada

Please note the Bulletin from Hockey Canada regarding leagues that operate outside of the BC Hockey / Hockey Canada membership.

This information may be shared with any members of your association who may have inquiries about such programs.

It is the responsibility of member associations to report all players and / or coaches who participate with non-registered teams in contravention of this policy. In situations where a player or coach participates in a non-registered program prior to registering for the current season with a BC Hockey member, discipline may apply to any team attempting to register such participant.

Given the changes to the Hockey Canada policy and the emphasis that it places on the long term athlete development (LTAD) model, it is incumbent upon Minor Hockey Associations (MHA), junior teams and Hockey Canada Accredited School programs to ensure that their volunteer and paid personnel are not associated with non-sanctioned groups.

Information regarding the status of a league or program can be requested from BC Hockey by email at


BC Hockey is a non-profit organization and member of Hockey Canada, providing stewardship of amateur hockey at all levels in British Columbia and Yukon.

Approximately 150 minor hockey associations, 55,000 players, 4,500 referees, 20,000 official volunteers and countless others make our great game possible here in Pacific Canada.
