The current registration numbers in the Peewee Coed program are as follows:
Goalies - 16 (3 goalies also want to play out)
Defence - 49
Forwards - 107
The current registration numbers in Peewee AA are as follows:
Goalies - 10 (6 are required for Peewee AA)
Defence - 42 (18 are required for Peewee AA)
Forwards - 57 (27 are required for Peewee AA)
This provides for the Coed program for the season:
Goalies - 20 (3 goalies also want to play out)
Defence - 73
Forwards - 137
The current registration numbers in the Peewee Female program are as follows:
Goalies - 2
Defence - 21
Forwards - 32
We could really use some goalies in both programs, so if you know a Peewee aged goalie that has not registered, send them our way.
A rough tentative plan for Peewee Evaluations this fall is as follows:
The Peewee AA evaluations/tryouts cannot start before September 1, 2016.
An estimated time for completion of the Peewee AA evaluations/tryouts would be September 5, 2016.
If needed, players not successful in the St Albert Peewee AA evaluations/tryouts may have the opportunity to try out at another association for their Peewee AA program. This process must be completed around September 20, 2016.
Therefore, Peewee Tier 2 and down evaluations cannot start until approximately September 21, 2016.
A rough tentative plan for running evaluations for the Peewee Tier 2 and down teams is as follows:
September 22, 2016 - Peewee Goalie Evaluations
September 23, 2016 - Peewee Female - Scrimmage #1
September 24, 2016 - Peewee Female - Scrimmage #2September 24, 2016 - Peewee Coed - Scrimmage #1
September 25, 2016 - Peewee Female - Scrimmage #3September 25, 2016 - Peewee Coed - Scrimmage #2
September 27/28/29, 2016 - Peewee Coed - Scrimmage #3
October 1, 2016 - Peewee Female and Coed - Final Scrimmage
October 2, 2016 - Peewee Female Team Selection Process
October 3, 2016 - Peewee Coed Team Selection Process
October 4, 2016 - Coaches Meeting & Equipment Pickup
October 8, 2016 - League Play Commences (Tier 2 teams will have their league schedule for the entire season)
Please keep in mind all this is tentative and more concrete dates will be placed on this site as they are known.

Anticipated teams for the 2016 - 2017 season:
Peewee Female - 4
Peewee Coed - 15
I have the following Coaching Applications:
Peewee Female - 2
Peewee Coed - 3
COACHING APPLICATIONS for the 2016-2017 season - anyone interested in coaching for next season can submit their application to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop it off to the SAMHA office.
= Coaching Application - 2016 - 2017 form
= Freedom of Information form (FOIP) (if SAMHA does not have FOIP form on file - for new coaches only)
= Criminal Record Check (CRC) (if SAMHA does not have a valid CRC on file - lasts three years)
Forms and details of each can be found above under the TABS (click on "FORMS" then click "COACH FORMS")
I would appreciate applications as early as possible so we can talk about coaching. Also, this helps me know where the levels I have to look for coaches as I won't move a player down just to have a coach.
Early submission of applications ensures time to complete the Criminal Record Check which can be a lengthy process.Any coach, assistant coach and/or manager planning on going on the team roster needs to register online.
Please note: For the 2016/2017 season, Hockey Alberta has the following Coach Education Requirements that must be completed prior to November 15, 2016:
The Coach Education Requirements for Head Coaches for the Peewee division are as follows:
1) Coach 2 - Coach Level
2) Checking Skills
Further, two coaches on the Official Team Roster must have:
Finally, all coaches on the Official Team Roster must have:
4) Respect in Sport - Coach (different than Respect in Sport - Parent)
5) Valid Criminal Record Check (CRC)
6) Signed Freedom of Information form (FOIP form)

The projections for the 2016 - 2017 season can be reviewed on the attached document:
2016 - 2017 Peewee Projections
Please remember these numbers are only projections based on the number of players registered last season and do not reflect positions or the program where players register this season. Based on prior season, we will likely go to 16 teams in the Coed program as we will have an abundance of forwards and a shortage of defence and goalies.
Adjustments will almost be guaranteed upon the number of players registered, the program in which the players register, a review of the skill levels during evaluations and consultations with the Hockey Operations Committee and prospective coaches.
