Jul 26th, 2018 | By | Category: City News, Post to Facebook

The Calgary 55 Plus Hockey Association is alive and well in Calgary. The association was formed in 1990 with the goal of providing an opportunity for Calgary and area players 55 and older to play recreational hockey for the fun of the game. The association is a registered non-profit society and supports community programs through annual contributions to selected charities.

There are currently more than 400 players who range in age from 55 to 86 and in skill level from ex-NHL to rookies. They play at 5 rinks that are spread through all 4 quadrants of the city. Games are played during the day on weekdays with some teams playing 3 times a week and some playing twice. Players enjoy a safe environment and the rules do not allow body checking or slap shots.

The association provides a central registry for members and teams, insurance for all members, an annual 3 day for the fun of hockey tournament as well as a managed website.

The cost for the entire season which starts October 1 and ends March 31 is $310 for those who play 3 times a week. This includes all ice times, CARHA insurance, tournament fee and a donation to local charities. Teams also have pizza days, Christmas and year-end parties as well as meet for golf and skiing.

Every attempt is made to place new players a team that suits their skill level and also is close to their home.
