AEHL Memorandum 02 – 2022-2023
Elite Male Hockey Committee
TRYOUT ELIGIBILITY FOR PLAYERS ATTENDING JUNIOR CAMPS
The Alberta Elite Hockey League, since its inception, has aimed to be the premier minor hockey league in Alberta in both quality of play and league operations. Recently, it has been brought to the attention of the committee that certain associations have communicated to players considering attending Major Junior and Junior A tryout camps that doing so would negatively impact their chances of making a AAA team.
The Elite Male Hockey Committee would like to reiterate that the AEHL, like the WHL and AJHL, is a part of the Hockey Alberta and Hockey Canada ecosystem. As such, every AEHL member association is expected to conduct their operations, including the tryout process, in a fashion that supports any player looking to pursue Junior tryout and development opportunities. To be clear, under no circumstances may an association release a player from tryouts due to a player’s absence from tryouts from attending camps with a Junior A or Major Junior team. Any teams found to be in violation of this practice may be subject to sanction.
The Elite Male Committee acknowledges this may create logistical challenges with the evaluation and team formation process and encourages any association facing these challenges to reach out to a member of the Elite Male Committee or Hockey Alberta Staff Member for assistance.
In order to be the premier minor hockey league in Alberta, the AEHL requires the premier players; many of whom have deservedly earned invitations to Junior A and Major Junior camps and deserve to pursue these opportunities. These players, if returned to AEHL member teams, should be given every chance to earn their place on the team and ensure that the AEHL’s product is the best it can be.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. Neil Robertson
Chair, Elite Male Committee – Hockey Alberta CC. Elite Male Committee

Please DO NOT contact the Head Coach or Coach Director.

The past few weeks have been challenging times for the hockey community across Canada, with intense attention from the federal government, the media, and participants in our sport.
Hockey Canada’s use of the National Equity Fund in the settlement of 2018 sexual misconduct allegations has been a key component of the ongoing public discussion. The media has reported some member organizations and participants are questioning whether their fees should go to Hockey Canada in the future.
Hockey Alberta has been working with the other 12 Member Branch partners across Canada to gain clarity for our member organizations and participants when it comes to the National Equity Fund.
Linked in this email is a Memo from Brian Cairo, Chief Financial Officer for Hockey Canada. Mr. Cairo put together this Memo at the request of the 13 Member Branches to answer questions on the National Equity Fund, how the dollars within that fund are collected, and how it will be used going forward.
Also linked in this email is the Action Plan that Hockey Canada published recently, outlining the steps that will be undertaken by Hockey Canada to drive culture change within our sport.
Please review both documents. They can be used internally and when speaking with your participants.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Hockey Alberta Office so that we can work to obtain the clarity your organization is seeking.
