Are you interested in playing hockey but unsure how to register or where to go? Please contact your local Minor Hockey Association or the BC Hockey office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are approximately 150 Minor Hockey Associations (MHA) within BC and the Yukon, each with their own established boundaries. Your MHA will depend on your residential address and the correct MHA can be verified by contacting the association. Once you have established the association to which you should belong, contact that association for further program information, fees, registration, etc.
All injury claims must be submitted to the BC Hockey office within 90 days of the incident. For more information please read the Participant Injury Reports Bulletin.
Players who are residents of any country other than Canada, must purchase primary insurance coverage. For more information, please read the Insurance Coverage – Out of Country Competitions and/or Players Bulletin.

Long Term Player Development
The Long-term Athlete Development (LTAD) model is based on the needs of athletes. The formation of a long-term plan in hockey stems from the fact that a very high percentage of athletes in the High Performance Program respond to questionnaires that their goals are to play on provincial and national teams or to receive post-secondary scholarships. At the same time, they have no idea how to get to that level, thus the need for a long-term plan.
The proposed model for long-term athlete development includes these main phases:
- Learning the Skills
- Training to Train
- Training to Compete
- Striving to Win
