Hockey Calgary requires that all NEW players/families complete the Respect in Sport (RIS) Parent program prior to registering. The course costs $12 and is valid for 4 years.  Returning families who completed the RIS in 2015 or prior will be required to recertify their RIS Parent prior to registering for the 2019/20 season.

If RIS Parent is current and you have older children playing with the Knights, you are not required to complete the RIS again.  You will have to go into the child management area of the RIS site and add the newest child to your account. Here is a link to help in this step:CLICK HERE.

RIS Parent and Coach are both transferable from other sports, ie. Ringette, Lacrosse, Baseball, etc. For your reference, here are instructions for you to port your certification to hockey (RIS from soccer applies to Coach RIS only – parents do not take the course with the Calgary Minor Soccer Association)

In the first field at the top of the registration page, enter the existing certificate number and click the “check” box. It will then be validated and you can complete the coach application with the association.

If you encounter any problems in your efforts to re certify, please send an email to info@respectgroupinc.com.

 

Volunteer Bond

Many of our association members are unaware of just how much volunteer work and fundraising is necessary to operate and administer a quality hockey program. The purpose of the Knights Volunteer Bond Program is to encourage all Association members to become actively involved in the operation and success of the Association   The more volunteers we have the more success we have for the players, teams and association. Participation in the volunteer bond program is a mandatory component of registration with the association and in no way does it exclude families from volunteering with their player’s team. A minimum of 10 hours of Association Approved volunteer work is required to fulfill each family’s Volunteer Bond obligations per season.  There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the season. A list of board approved volunteer positions will be posted on the website each season. The value of the Volunteer Bond is set at $200.00 per family per year.

More information about the Knights Volunteer Bond can be found here: Volunteer Bond Program

 

Quadrant Tryouts

If you are a Bantam or Midget aged player who intends to try out for the Calgary Buffaloes, you must register with BOTH the Knights and the Calgary Buffaloes.

Players registering with the Knights must register using the registration link on the Knights Registration page.  When registering, simply choose the quadrant tryout option within the Bantam and Midget age group categories. There is a $100 registration fee deposit required at the time of registration.  If the player is released back to the Knights, the registration fee must be paid prior to the player’s first evaluation skate with the Knights.  Contact the registrar at admin@knightshc.ca to arrange payment. Should your player be returned to the Knights for the 2019-20 season and they are not registered with the Knights, there is no guarantee they will be accepted and a late registration fee of $150 will apply if accepted.

Players wishing to tryout with the Calgary Buffaloes must also register using the Buffaloes registration link found on their website.  If you are unsure about how to register as a Quadrant player, please visit the Calgary Buffaloes website at: http://calgarybuffaloes.ca/ or contact the Calgary Buffaloes Registrar at lori.mcd@outlook.com

 

South Calgary Hockey House League

The Flames Community House Hockey League is a partnership between the Calgary Flames organization, Hockey Calgary and its member associations.  The goal is to provide recreational players the opportunity to play organized hockey that is affordable, fun and safe, with moderate, consistent, time and location commitments allowing for participation in other social, academic or recreational activities. It also provides players with limited skills and knowledge an introduction to the game in a less intimidating format. The program is regionally based, offering participants a chance to play the great game of hockey with less time and travel commitments.

The Calgary Flames continue to sponsor House League hockey by providing game jerseys and socks.  The Flames jerseys will be provided in a variety of colors and will provide the House League with their own identity within the Hockey Calgary program. Jerseys have been provided on a 2-year rotation. There will be a new batch of jersey and socks for the 2019-20 season and therefore players will be returning jerseys at the conclusion of the season.

This is NOT a “learn to skate” program.  Players should have the basic fundamentals of skating including; stopping, gliding, turning, moving backwards and the proper technique for falling down and getting up.
