Guidelines & Information for 2021-2022 Season

Season Timeline

On April 27, 2020, the Hockey Calgary Board of Directors approved recommendations from the Operations Committee for the 2020-2021 season. As the season was not played as originally planned, some of these recommendations were put on hold and will now be implemented effective the 2021-2022 season.

The League Structure Format was amended with the following changes:

  • Shortened ‘Seeding Round’ – 2-4 less games depending on Age Category
  • Reduced to 4 weeks (5 weekends) in duration. No schedule window provided for tournaments
  • Longer ‘Regular Season’ – 2-4 more games depending on Age Category o More meaningful Games in League Play as season starts early December
  • 7-9 Tournament Windows/Weekends available over course of season
  • U9 Scheduling – No games before 8:00 AM
  • Goal to increase the number 75-minute permits for Hockey Calgary games
  • Family Day – concerted effort to avoid games on Family Day itself. Unfortunately, games will still be scheduled on the weekend of Family Day
