Respect in Sport–Parent
Hockey Calgary requires every player registered for minor hockey to have a valid Respect in Sport – Parent certificate associated with the player's Hockey Canada profile. As Hockey Calgary is committed to creating a positive hockey experience for all, they provide this convenient online course for hockey parents through the Respect in Sport program. This 1 hour online program is designed to reinforce a parent’s role in a child’s activities, encouraging positive sport behaviours, and empowers parents to ensure the safety of their children, encourage positive and effective communication, and to enhance a child's fun and camaraderie of the activity.
Respect in Sport-Parent certificates are valid for a period of 4 hockey seasons after which re-certification is required. Respect in Sport-Parent Program certificates from the 2016-2017 season expired May 1, 2020. If you did not re-certified in the 2017-2018 season or after, you will need to re-certify PRIOR TO REGISTERING YOUR CHILD(REN) FOR THE 2020-2021 HOCKEY SEASON.
If you do register without re-certifying, your child’s registration will NOT be confirmed until you have done so and your child will not be allowed on the ice for evaluations. This certification is a requirement of Hockey Calgary and Hockey Alberta.
To begin the Hockey Alberta Respect in Sport-Parent program, please visit the Hockey Alberta Respect in Sport for Parents website.
Be sure to select "Trails West" as the organization and not Calgary Trails West Jr C or Calgary.
Note : There is a $12 + GST payment required prior to accessing the program. Trails West and Hockey Calgary do NOT have a pre-registration code. Please pay the required fee.
Please choose “Trails West” as your organization, NOT Calgary, Calgary Trails West Jr. C. or Hockey Calgary.
Ensure that your child(ren) are properly associated with your Respect in Sport profile under Child Management. This information must be correct for your certification to be associated with your child(ren)’s Hockey Canada Hockey ID number in the Hockey Canada Registration System.
If you have any issues with your Respect in Sport username or password, please visit the Respect Group Customer Support Portal.

Updated: August 30, 2020
Thank you for your patience as we navigated through the guidelines from Hockey Alberta/Hockey Calgary and the Government of Alberta to determine the viability of offering conditioning camps this season.
Trails West will be offering conditioning camps this season to help your athlete prepare for evaluations. The camps will focus on the types of skills and drills the athletes are likely to see at evaluations and will be offered in a socially distanced manner this season so no cohort groups will be required to attend the camps. Only those players/goaltenders registered with TWHA for the 2020-2021 season will be permitted to register and attend TWHA conditioning camps.
There are limited spots available for each group within each age division. Registration is on a first come basis. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 23 participants plus 2 coaches. For U9, this means 23 players for each group. For U13/U15/U18, this means 21 players plus 2 goaltenders for each group.
New for 2020-2021: Registration will be for a specific group with specific session dates/times. Please be sure to review the below group schedule PRIOR TO REGISTRATION so you select the group you prefer. Please remember the group colour as the session dates/times will not be listed on the registration form, only the group colour. Once registration has been completed, you can NOT change your group choice and participant substitutions will not be allowed under any circumstance.
TWHA reserves the right to change the group registered for depending upon number of registered participants in each group and if there are covid-19 related regulation changes required.
IMPORTANT: Your player will be rostered to TeamSnap in their Conditioning Camp Group no less than one day before their camp session will begin. Be sure to have the latest version of TeamSnap downloaded as you will require it to access the new Health Check feature.
*CLARIFICATION - Conditioning Camps are NOT MANDATORY - this is an optional camp. If you wish your U13/U15/U18 goaltender to attend the conditioning camp then they must register using the link below. Trails West will provide every goaltender a group session with Top Prospects Goaltending (TPG) if they attend all the sessions for the conditioning group they registered for. Further details will be emailed to the goaltenders who are eligible for this Trails West hosted TPG session once the season has begun. There will be a partial fee for the camps (see below) as attendance is expected if registered.
New this year there will be a waitlist option for every age division (and position if applicable). If there are no spots available in any of the camp groups for your age division, please select the waitlist option to register on the waitlist on a first come, first offered an available spot basis. The waitlist is not group specific so if you are on the waitlist, you will be offered the first spot that becomes available for any group. Emails requesting to be put on a waitlist will not be accepted.
|Age Division||# Ice Sessions||Camp Fee|
|U11||4||included with TWHA registration|
|U13/U15/U18 - player||4||$ 120|
|U13/U15/U18 - goaltender||4||$ 60|
Refunds (Conditioning Camps only)
Refunds for conditioning camps will only be considered if due to illness or injury unless the spot vacated is filled by another fully registered (paid) participant who was on the waitlist. All refunds will be charged a $25 non-refundable administrative fee if the spot is not filled. Should TWHA be required to cancel conditioning camps/pre-skates due to changes in COVID-19 related rules, refunds will be issued to all registered conditioning camp participants only.
On Ice Coaches
As registration was delayed for the conditioning camps and there is a very short time between camp registration closing and the first ice time, we are asking coaches interested in assisting on ice for the camps (including U11 pre-skates) to please email the TWHA Conditioning Camp Coordinator with your interest. Sophie can be reached at email@example.com. Thank you for volunteering!
IMPORTANT Special Procedures for 2020
- Every participant will be required to complete their availability and the Health Check no less than 1 hour before each session the participant is attending. Health Check will open for completion only 8 hours prior to the ice time. These are mandatory requirements by Alberta Health Services and Hockey Alberta/Hockey Calgary. Should the Health Check and availability not be completed, the player/goaltender will not be allowed to participate in the session if they show up. Only those players/goaltenders registered for and who have a clear "green" Health Check will be allowed on the ice for the session. We ask that all families respect these rules as they are required for our association to offer these conditioning camps/pre-skates.

An email will be sent to every U11 community registrant with your assigned pre-skate group approximately one week prior to the first session date. Sessions are scheduled to run Monday August 31 to Sunday September 6. There will be no opportunity to change the group you are assigned to and player substitutions will not be allowed. The below Special Procedures for 2020 will apply to U11 pre-skates as well.
Quadrant (Royals) Tryout
All U15 (Bantam) and U18 (Midget) players who intend to try out for the Calgary Royals must be registered with Trails West as well as the Calgary Royals for the 2020-2021 Season. During Trails West registration, there will be a required question “Is your player trying out for Quadrant Hockey with the Calgary Royals (CRAA)?”. There are three options to choose from:
Option 1: Yes – Adjust TWHA Registration Fee (Quadrant Tryout). This option will credit the registration fee so that no registration fee is required to be paid at registration checkout if registration is made prior to August 15. If we receive confirmation that the player has been released by the Calgary Royals and is returning to play with Trails West, the full program registration fee will be added to the player’s registration however, no late fee will be applied. To pay, login to your TeamSnap account and click “My Registrations” and then the “pay now” button next to 2020-2021 TWHA Registration. The balance owing must be paid in FULL prior to the player’s first skate with Trails West.
Option 2: Pay TWHA Registration Fee (Quadrant Tryout). You will be required to pay the registration fee either in full at time of registration or using the instalment plan. Late fees will apply as usual if you register using this option and are non-refundable. Should your player be drafted to the Royals, a full refund of the regular registration fee will be issued by credit card to you upon our receipt of confirmation of their draft.
Option 3: No (Quadrant Tryout).
IMPORTANT: Trails West registration does NOT register your player with the Calgary Royals for their try-outs. You must register your player separately for the Calgary Royals Try-Outs using the registration link on the Calgary Royals website. Players who have not registered with the Calgary Royals before must have their Hockey Canada profile shared with the Calgary Royals prior to registering with them. Please contact the Calgary Royals Administrator for assistance.
Should your player return to Trails West and they were not previously registered with Trails West under the above noted registration options, there is no guarantee they will be accepted by Trails West and a late registration fee of $250 will apply if accepted.
Learn to Skate
Thank you for your patience as we navigated through the guidelines from Hockey Alberta/Hockey Calgary and the Government of Alberta to determine the viability of offering Learn to Skate this season.
Trails West is pleased to announce we will be offering the Learn to Skate program this season albeit with a much smaller group than normal and in a slightly different format. Our usual LTS program capacity has been reduced significantly to accommodate the Alberta Relaunch Strategy restrictions. One parent is still required to be on the ice at each session with the player. The Learn to Skate program will be held in a physically-distanced manner so no cohort group will be required.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we manage through these unprecedented times.
If you have any questions, please reach out to the TWHA Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit Learn to Skate under Teams for specific program information.
Our Learn to Skate program (LTS) is for children ages 4-6. Registration is on a first come basis and is capped. The program is open to those residing within the Trails West area and, if room permits, to those who reside outside the TWHA area. Please click here for a map outlining the Trails West communities.
For the 2020-2021 season, registration will be capped at 24 players.
Registration will open August 13 at 9:00AM. Only those players within Trails West's boundaries may fully register between August 13 - September 7.
If you live outside our boundaries and are interested in our program, you may register selecting the LTS Waitlist option (no fee required). On September 8, when registration opens to those outside of Trails West’s boundaries, room permitting, only this registered waitlist will be used to offer available spots in order of registration on the waitlist. Emails requesting to be put on a waitlist are no longer accepted. Any player who resides outside of Trails West boundaries who fully registers (pays) for LTS prior to September 8 will have their registration cancelled and fees refunded.
Note that the Respect in Sport-Parent certification is not required for Learn to Skate.
New for 2020-2021. Unlike previous years, it is possible we will not be able to accommodate all those interested in our program due to the current restriction on number of participants so we are offering a waitlist option. Should the rules ease early in the season allowing us to expand the number of participants in the program, we will reach out to those on our waitlist.
If you live within Trails West boundaries and there are no spots available for registration, please select the waitlist option during registration to be placed on the waitlist (no fee required yet). If you live outside TWHA boundaries and it is before September 8, or it is after September 8 and there are no spots available, please select the waitlist option during registration to be placed on the waitlist (no fee required). Payment for the full registration fee will be required at the time the spot is offered.
Should registration be full before those outside our boundaries have the opportunity to register, priority for additional available spots will be given to those on the waitlist within our boundaries. However, if the existing program capacity is full after registration opened to those outside of our boundaries, then any future spots available will be offered to those on the waitlist in a first registered basis regardless if the player is inside or outside our boundaries.
Verification of Eligibility
We require proof of age for all new players (ie. birth certificate, passport), and proof of residency (ie.utility bill – clearly showing billing and service address or current Income Tax Assessment or Home Insurance Policy). Please scan and email these documents to the TWHA Administrator. Kindly reference Learn to Skate - New Player Registration in the subject line. Note, if your child continues to U7 (Timbits), minor hockey registration has different requirements, so you will need to provide this proof again.
Birth year 2014-2016: $440
*2020-2021 season, a 10% discount will automatically be applied so the registration fee will be $396
How we contact you
Trails West provides the LTS team their roster and practice schedule via TeamSnap. It is important to know that the required email address under "Participant Information" during registration is the main email address used for all TWHA communication. This email is considered your TeamSnap Roster Email and can be different than your TeamSnap Account Email that you use to login to TeamSnap. Refer to this TeamSnap tipsheet for an explanation.
Prior to the first skate for LTS, you will receive an email from TeamSnap asking to either “Join the Team” or “Congrats! You’ve been added to ---- Team”. If you are a member of TeamSnap already using the same participant email address as used during registration, you will automatically be added to the team. If you are not a member of TeamSnap or have used a different email than what we have on record, then you will be asked to set up an account so you can join the team. Basic player information will be uploaded to the TeamSnap Team Rosters using information from registration form. Every family is encouraged to review and amend this information if necessary on the player profile within TeamSnap. Should you wish to keep your contact information private from other team members on TeamSnap, you may click on the "Hide all contact information from teammates" during registration or change this feature once you have been added to the team.
Payment is by credit card only. Information regarding financial assistance is available on the TWHA website and you can apply directly to the organizations.
Subject to TWHA Board Review. Full refund of Regular Registration Fee less $50, less portion of season missed. To request a refund, please complete the TWHA Refund Form Learn to Skate and send it to the TWHA Administrator.

Registration for LTS is now full.
If you would like to be added to the waitlist should spots open up (if you reside within or outside TWHA boundaries), please click on the registration link and select the "LTS WAITLIST" participant fee (no fee is required until a spot is offered).
