Permit Requests


If you have any questions regarding permits, please contact Steve Grue, Steve Grue - SMHA VP of Operations.


 

There are significant changes to permitting for the 2018/2019 season! Please read carefully!


Hockey Edmonton Permits

SMHA teams that are part of the Edmonton Federation Hockey League (EFHL) must obtain travel permits from Hockey Edmonton, in addition to Hockey Alberta permits. The Hockey Edmonton permits are related to scheduling and ice allocation and have nothing to do with insurance coverage.

Requirements for when and how to obtain a Hockey Edmonton permit are outlined during the Hockey Edmonton team managers meeting at the start of the season and are on the Hockey Edmonton website.

To request a Hockey Edmonton permit: [Hockey Edmonton travel permits page]


Hockey Alberta Permits

Hockey Alberta permits are related to insurance coverage. Details for when teams need permits are outlined below. Filling out the online form is a request for a permit - you do not have a permit until you have been given a permit. Hockey Alberta will email you the permit once they approve it.

Hockey Alberta Travel Permits

  • Hockey Alberta Travel Permits are required by the visiting team at an exhibition game or a tournament (other than the Provincial Tournament).
  • A travel permit is not needed for team practices, league games, provincial playdown games or the provincial tournament.
  • You must obtain the sanction number from the host team prior to applying for a travel permit.
  • A significant change for the 2018/2019 season is that Hockey Alberta now requires travel permits even if the exhibition game or tournament is within our zone (zone 7).
  • Teams that are under disciplinary action from SMHA will be denied travel permits.

Hockey Alberta Exhibition Game Sanction Permits

  • Hockey Alberta Exhibition Game Sanction Permits are required by the host team of an exhibition game.
  • Once approved, you must provide the Hockey Alberta Exhibition Game Sanction Permit # to the visiting team.
  • The visiting team needs the # in order to apply for their travel permit so be sure to apply for your Hockey Alberta Exhibition Game Sanction Permit well in advance!
  • Teams that are under disciplinary action from SMHA will be denied permits.

 Hockey Alberta Tournament Sanction Permits

  • Hockey Alberta Tournament Sanction Permits are required by the host team of a tournament.
  • Provide the Hockey Alberta Tournament Sanction Permit # to the visiting teams.
  • The visiting teams will need the # in order to apply for their travel permit so be sure to apply for your Hockey Alberta Tournament Sanction Permit well in advance!
  • The tournament sanction number will be automatically posted on the Hockey Alberta website once the tournament is approved. If the other teams need to leave their zone to attend the tournament, they will need the sanction number on their travel permit.
  • Teams that are under disciplinary action from SMHA will be denied permits.

 Post Permit Duties

  • When any Hockey Alberta permit is approved, an email confirmation is sent by Hockey Alberta to the team that requested the permit. The email states how and when completed game sheets are to be sent to Hockey Alberta.
  • Follow all instructions from Hockey Alberta described on the permit!
  • Ensure that the Hockey Alberta sanction # is clearly written on all game sheets.
  • Electronic Game Sheets
    • Hockey Alberta will be utilizing electronic game sheets for all sanctioned exhibition and tournament games going forward.
    • Using the Centre Ice Portal, home / host teams will be required to upload the game sheet within 24 hours from the completion of the exhibition game or tournament. A picture of the original game sheet along with all penalties will be required when entering the game sheet. Once entered, any infractions requiring supplemental discipline will automatically be forwarded to the appropriate Zone Minor Discipline Coordinator or Division of Hockey Chair.
    • With electronic game sheets in use, email submission of game sheets will now only be accepted by the Zone Minor Discipline Coordinator or Division of Hockey Chair for games taking place outside of Alberta.
