U11 AA Lakers

For the past two seasons (2022-24), Hockey Alberta has worked with Minor Hockey Leagues to operate the U11 Hockey Alberta Development Pilot province-wide. The Pilot explored the top level of U11 hockey in the province and provided results and feedback from the two seasons that are overwhelmingly positive. As a result, Hockey Alberta has decided to create the category of U11 AA, officially, for the 2024-25 season onwards.

Starting with the 2024-25 season, U11 AA will operate under the specific rules and regulations of the U11 AA Hockey Model - similar to U11 HADP, but with some differences, including:

  • Hockey Alberta has identified the MHAs required to host U11 AA teams as part of the U11 AA Hockey Model. An MHA that is hosting U13 AA teams as part of the AA Hockey Model will host the same number of U11 AA teams as they operate at U13 AA.
  • Hockey Alberta has identified an expansion / reduction process that allows MHAs, including those not hosting U13 AA teams, to apply to Hockey Alberta for expansion or reduction within the U11 AA Hockey Model.
  • League-play under the U11 AA Hockey Model will be operated by Hockey Alberta with the formation of a new U11 AA league. The league features conferences and divisions to minimize travel during the season, and crowns a League / Provincial Champion at the end of the season.

As we strive to grow and develop as an Association, SLMHA has reviewed feedback from members and as such will be implementing a two-part fee structure. We believe this will give our SLMHA members the opportunity to have a successful and unique season that best suits the player.
