  •         July 31st - Online Registration closes.  All registration fees are due, in full, on October 1st.   A late fee of $200 will be applied after August 1st to all current members that have failed to register          prior to this date. New members within CMH boundary or out of boundary that are accepted if spots are available will not be subject to a late fee.

Once registration numbers are determined for program choices, communication regarding the number of transitions from REP to RHL will be sent out.

Player Positions

Please be sure that your player position is correct on the registration as positions will not be changed.  (This only applies to U13, U15 & U18.) We will not be sending out a confirmation for positions, it is the responsibility of the person registering to make sure this has been entered correctly. So please indicate FORWARD, DEFENSE or GOALIE on player position when registering.  

U7/U9 please select N/A as a player position (goalies are not designated in these divisions).  U11 goaltenders must select Goalie, all other positions please select N/A as well.

Credits carried forward from 2020-2021:

Some members chose to carry forward the credit from last season. The RAMP system will require payment of fees up to the credit balance on the account. In other words, members will be required to pay the $50 non-refundable deposit at the point of registration, as well as the initial installment payments until such time as the credit offsets the remaining balance owed. If you are registering more than 1 family member the credit will be applied to the first family member you register. It will not be applied individually to each family member. For example if family member A has credit of $100 and family member B has credit of $100 the total credit of $200 will be applied to family member A. If there is still credit remaining it will then be applied to family member B. We did inquire about this being done individually but it was not possible.

The Player’s division is determined by birth year. See below.

CMHA offers a traditional competitive Rep program for male and interested female players. This is competitive hockey and involves travel to other southern and central Alberta towns.  The Rep program is a tiered program - athletes go through a competitive evaluation process and are placed on tiered teams according to skill level.  Rep teams participate in the Central Alberta Hockey League www.cahlhockey.net   Cochrane Minor Hockey supports the number of teams determined by registration numbers and ice availability for the REP program. 

Current program standard is 2 practices per week for U11, U13, U15.  U18 have one 1.25-hour practice weekly. 1 - 2 games per weekend.

Regular Season schedules can vary from 14-18 games,

Female Rep

CMHA offers a competitive female program for U11 through U18 female hockey players. The U11, U13, U15 and U18 Female teams play within a league (i.e. RMFHL, CAHL) directed by the Board of Directors of CMH on the advice of the Female Director, and therefore the league will determine the boundaries. Female Rep has tiered hockey with players placed on teams after competitive evaluations, but the number of teams per age-group will depend upon registration numbers.

Current program standard  is 2 practices per week for U11, U13, U15.  U18 have one 1.25 hour practice weekly. 

The number of teams in each division is determined by registration numbers and ice availability.


RHL “Rockies Hockey League”

CMHA also offers a recreational/competitive hockey program. These teams participate in the Rockies Hockey League. Players are divided into tiers determined by the RHL and balanced teams are formed to play against balanced teams from other minor hockey associations. Current program standard - 1 practice per week all max ice (½ ½ ½). U11, U13, U15 and U18 teams receive ½ full ice practice and ½ shared ice practice during the weekly scheduled practice time. 

The number of teams in each division is determined by registration numbers and ice availability.

The total number of players may vary due to registration numbers. CMH reserves the right to maximize rosters to the HA regulation size.
