REP (CAHL)

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,

Tiering Season - Central Alberta Hockey League strives to see all teams play 6-8 games in a 4 week period. A total of 20-26 games plus playoffs as well tournaments that teams register for. An average number of games per season for a REP team is 32-42.

 

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.

 

 

Intro to Hockey

U7/U9 “formerly known as Initiation and Novice”

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

U9 - consists of players 7 and 8-year-olds, practices/games run Saturday and Sunday mornings and additional bi-weekly practice on a weekday, following the Hockey Canada and Hockey Alberta Intro to Hockey model. Players will go through technical evaluations/game evaluations and will be assigned a ranking based on their skill level. Teams will be created so all teams are balanced within their tiers.
