Sangudo Minor Sports Association Hockey Registration Information
To all hockey families,
In relation to minor hockey dissolving in Sangudo under the Hockey Alberta umbrella (this does not include "Fun Hockey", public skating, or any other minor hockey organizations), Hockey Alberta has recently given us feedback and info on how you can proceed with registering your child/children for this coming 2018/19 season. The info applies to 2 entities; 1) if your child was registered with minor hockey in Sangudo Minor Sports and played hockey this past year, or 2) if your child is a new registrant to minor hockey in the Sangudo area and has not played hockey prior to this year (this would most typically be new initiation and novice registrants).
Current/Prior registered children:
You may go ahead and register your child/children to any one of the 4 immediate surrounding LMHA's (Local Minor Hockey Associations); Mayerthorpe, Barrhead, Onoway, or Pembina. Most logically one that suites your land location, school, work commute, etc situations. Please select carefully as Hockey Alberta does not want to have to address requests for release again the following season. Your selection will be your new home association. You CANNOT register at an LMHA like Whitecourt, St. Albert, Drayton Valley, Edmonton, etc, that is BEYOND the 4 immediate surrounding LMHA's. If you so desire, you will have to register at one of the 4 surrounding LMHA's first, and then request for a release from there, which will be subject to review by Hockey Alberta. Once you have registered at your new LMHA, Hockey Alberta will then process all transfers/releases accordingly over the summer prior to season start. If your family has any younger siblings that will register in the future, they will be able to apply to the same LMHA as the current child you are registering. If you have requests for release or movement for A, AA or other higher level hockey outside of those 4 LMHA's, you must register at one of 4 surrounding LMHA's first and then request from there for those purposes as per general Hockey Alberta rules.
You will be required to register at one of the 4 immediate surrounding LMHA's, Mayerthorpe, Barrhead, Onoway, or Pembina that is closest to you by your land location to the nearest current Sangudo area minor hockey boundary (for example if you land location is closer to the Pembina boundary than Barrhead or Mayerthorpe boundaries, then register at Pembina. Current boundaries are described on the SMS website by-laws, or contact myself for clarification. If you desire to be registered at another LMHA (because of school or work purposes for example), you will have to register at the closest one first and then request for release, which will be subject to review by Hockey Alberta.
Hockey Alberta and the surrounding LMHA's will review the current minor hockey area boundaries over the summer and revise them accordingly. SMS has provided info and suggestion for that purpose. Any new registrants that apply after the new boundaries are set by Hockey Alberta will be subject to those new boundaries and Hockey Alberta rules and guidelines.
If you have any questions or require any further clarification, please feel free to contact myself, Chad Muldoon, or the Hockey Alberta Zone 3 Minor Regulations Coordinator - Barry Brost, or the Zone 3 Minor Administration - Seema King.
If you are having troubles with registering at one of the 4 surrounding LMHA's please contact Barry Brost or Seema King. Please be advised that SMS is not the authority to grant releases now. Releases will now be handled by Hockey Alberta to your new LMHA.
