FAQ


How do I know if Millet is the Local Minor Hockey Association my child should be applying in?

Hockey Alberta has set boundaries that each Association draws their player base from. If you reside within the Town of Millet, your child plays in Millet. If you live outside the Town of Millet, please send the registrar an email with your legal land description prior to registering, so it can be verified whether you fall within our boundary.

 

Who is your association ran and governed by?

All the positions in our association are filled by volunteers, most of whom are parents and guardians of the players. Our current Executive Board Team consists of 13 members who meet monthly.

As an association, we are governed by Hockey Canada and Hockey Alberta rules and regulations.  This handbook is only a guideline and does not override Hockey Alberta, Hockey Canada or Alberta Gaming rules and guidelines. 

 

How do I complete my registration?

Registration is done online

 

How old does my child have to be?

4 years old as of December 31 of the current year, and no older than 17 as of December 31 of the current year.

 

My child is a new or just starting to learn skater, is that ok?

You bet! All kids start at the beginning. We do encourage you to attend public skating with your child to give them a bit of extra help at the beginning if they are a brand-new skater or register them in a learn to skate program alongside hockey.

 

What team will my child be on?

Your child will be in the division according to their year of birth as set out on our registration page. If there are too many kids for one team and enough for two within a division, two teams will be created, and evaluations will be held for the divisions of Atom and up.

 

Who will my main contact person be?

Please contact the registrar for anything registration related.

Your coordinator or team manager will contact you prior to season start to let you know any pertinent information. These will be the two people who will help you navigate the remainder of the season.

 

When does the season start and when is the schedule released?

Typically, the 3rd week in September. We aim to have the practice schedule available to you for the end of August.

For the 2019/20 Season, our Novice, Atom & Peewee teams will be playing in the Northern Alberta Interlock League. They create our game schedules and release them typically in October. 

 

When does the season end?

Near the end of March. The League does their best to schedule the games, so they are completed before spring break begins.

 

How many times a week will my child be on the ice for practice and games?

Initiation: 2

These are normally both practices before Christmas, after Christmas 1 practice during the week and 1 game on the weekend.

Novice, Atom & Peewee: 3-4

2 Practices a week and 1-2 games on the weekend.

 

Do I have to stay at the rink during practices and games?

Yes, always - unless you have made arrangements with another parent to be in charge of your child. It is not a babysitting service. You are required to dress your child before games and practices until they are of an age and within a division where they can dress themselves, and coaches have stated they do not require or want parents to be in the dressing room prior to practices and games.

 

What equipment does my child need?

This site is a great resource to help you with your equipment questions.

If you would like a recommendation on where to purchase used/new equipment locally please send us an email.

Please also remember to provide a labeled water bottle for your child.

Millet Minor Hockey will provide the players with a jersey and socks for games.

If you would like to purchase name bars for the back of your child's jersey, there will be an opportunity to do so at the beginning of the season. More details to follow.
