Play NEZ Hockey
COVID-19 UPDATE FROM NEZ HOCKEY – May 12, 2020
COVID-19 has brought many challenges to our sports communities. As we continue to work through the challenges and required social distancing we want to look forward and prepare for a 2020-2021 hockey season that we hope will happen.
This week we are seeing some of the restrictions and closures change and end but at this time we really have no idea what will happen in September. Will our children be back to school? Will minor sports programs be allowed to operate?
Northeast Zone Hockey together with the Braves, Eagles and Northstars will open online hockey registration as soon as it is available through Hockey Canada. This will likely happen in early June. We will not be taking online payments at that time. We do not want to be in a position that we accept registration fees only to have to refund them at a later date. We want to avoid the considerable costs associated with online payments and refunds.
We do encourage everyone to get registered so we can plan the season. Hope to see you all at a hockey rink in September.
Registration for the 2020-2021 season will open early to mid June.
Use the link below to access the Hockey Canada Online Registration system to register a player.
U15 (BANTAM) & U18 (MIDGET): Only returning NEZ U15 and U18 players or NEW players that have not registered before with any Hockey Canada organization may use this link to register online. Players that have previously registered elsewhere must first contact the NEZ registrar, Lisa Tellefson (firstname.lastname@example.org), to enact a transfer/release from their previous association. Click (here) for more information on Bantam & Midget registration.
U7 (DISCOVERY, JR. TIMBITS AND SR. TIMBITS): (previously Initiation Hockey) for 4, 5 & 6 year olds will register directly with NEZ Hockey via the Hockey Canada OnLine Registration system.

U9 (Novice), U11 (Atom) and U13 (Peewee) players who have previously registered in the NEZ program with the Braves, Eagles or Northstars must register with them.
Click (here) for links to their websites.
Registration of the player is NOT complete until ALL registration requirements have been met:
- If registering a player for the first time families must take the Hockey Canada Respect In Sport program BEFORE players will be given tryout/evaluation ice times. Respect-In-Sport will need to be taken again if your certificate is older than 5 years. When taking the program please ensure that you specify EACH player that you will be registering and make sure the spelling of their name EXACTLY matches the name they are currently registered by. Failure to do so will prevent that player from showing as having a parent take the course. If registering a player for the first time when you have taken the course for another player you can go to the Respect In Sport website and add that player to your existing Respect In Sport record. More details and links to take the course are available (here).
- For U15 & U18 registrations a parent must attend an in-person registration date to sign-up for bingo(s) or pay the $200 Bingo Waiver fee when registering online. Requirement for U15 and U18 parents to attend the in-person registration would not be required if Registration fees and Bingo Waiver fee are both paid for online.
- Family Community League membership must be purchased in advance either online through EFCL or at your home Community League. Every family MUST purchase a Community League membership to participate in the NEZ program. Military families do not require a Community League membership but must provide a photocopy of CRA membership card
- For NEW players: Copy of birth certificate, Alberta Health Care card and proof of residency – a property tax bill or utility bill with parent(s) name and address on it accompanying payment of fees or emailed to email@example.com
