NEW FOR 2019!

Please note the following policy changes for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.

  • SBMHA will officially discontinue use of the age group name “Midget” and replace it with “U18”. U18 will encompass the ages of 15, 16 and 17. All other age group names (Novice, Atom, Peewee and Bantam) will remain the same.
  • Bantam and U18 age group evaluation policy has been changed to mirror that of all other SBMHA A hockey age groups. The Player Evaluation policy is revised to state the following; “SBMHA policy is to use independent evaluators to complete player evaluations for players in the Novice A, Atom, Peewee, Bantam and U18 divisions. This covers all age divisions for “A Hockey” Note that for the Novice division, this only applies to Novice A, the IP program will continue to be used for House League team formation.” As such SBMHA players selection process for Bantam and U18 age groups will no longer be 100% coach selection, and will now be 70% evaluator based and 30% coach selection.

2019/2020 Hockey Winnipeg Changes

Hockey Winnipeg had their annual rules and regulations meeting in May. A motion was put forth and voted on and the following changes for the upcoming season were passed:

  • AA and A1, A2, A3 hockey will become double ages.
  • Peewee will become 11 & 12 yr olds, Bantam will become 13 & 14 yr olds.
  • Each association will form 2 AA teams for the combined ages and the number of A1, A2 and A3 teams will be determined based on the same Hockey Canada formula as before.
  • AA team formation will be for 2 equal teams based on a draft process for the forwards, then defence, then goalies.
  • This will leave only Minor Atom and Atom as single ages and that change will take place 2020/2021. This would have Manitoba fall in line with the rest of the country and have double age hockey.

Pease be advised that in the absence of a formal statement from Hockey Wpg at this time, this is the information to the best of our knowledge. If there are material changes to this, we will issue a follow up statement to our membership.
