*2013-14 Board of Directors
Our Vision: To become the most progressive and innovative sport organization in Canada.
Our Mission: To create opportunities and valuable life experiences in hockey for Albertans by providing exceptional leadership and service.
Our History: Hockey Alberta was founded in 1907 and has acted as the governing body for the sport of hockey in this province ever since. Since then, Hockey Alberta has been designing and implementing new ways to organize and develop players, coaches, officials and administrators throughout the province to create positive experiences for everyone involved in the game.
Our Members: Hockey Alberta is the third largest provincial branch of Hockey Canada, which is the national governing body for amateur hockey in Canada. Hockey Alberta is the acting governing body for amateur hockey in the province of Alberta ranging from the levels of minor hockey to senior hockey including the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Hockey Alberta has approximately 450 member organizations representing over 90,000 participants. All players are coached, officiated and developed through the teachings and education that Hockey Alberta provides at all levels of the game.
Our Volunteers: Hockey Alberta is a volunteer driven organization with over 500 volunteers involved in different roles through our committees and programs. The direction of Hockey Alberta is guided through a board of directors, councils, and many committees implemented through nine zone teams. Without the devotion of these people, Hockey Alberta would not be one of Canada’s leaders in hockey development.
Our Staff: Hockey Alberta consists of 27 staff members that facilitate the Operations, Development and Marketing/Communications/Foundation departments of the organization located in Red Deer. Hockey Alberta has six staff members who work remotely at Hockey Alberta Regional Centres - one in each of Grande Prairie, Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary, Lethbridge, and Lloydminster. The staff oversees all of the programs and services that Hockey Alberta provides its members through implementation, discussion and development on a day-to-day basis.
