Re: Bodychecking and AA Tryouts


May 16, 2019


The purpose of this memorandum is to provide clarification on two specific topics:

1. Some of you might have seen a recent news release from both Saskatoon Minor Hockey as well as Hockey Regina stating their associations are removing bodychecking from their Bantam B and Midget B divisions.  This is not an SHA directive or regulation.  This applies only to those specific teams in those specific tiers/divisions within those two minor hockey association’s leagues. There still is bodychecking in Bantam and Midget hockey.

2. SHA has received questions on when the AA tryouts are this fall.  In Male nothing has changed from previous years.  In Female, with the introduction of Bantam AA, there are now specific tryout dates for Female AA teams as well (see SHA Notice of Motion 6.04.01 that was recently sent to all minor hockey associations).

  • Bantam AA – September 13-15
