CBHA guide

CBHA stands for the Calgary buffalo hockey association. It is the oldest association for hockey which has been working for decades in Canada. Being the winner for most of the city and provincial awards, the association stands out in the game for every age group. The association consists of 11 teams for the age groups 13 to 21 years.

Many people ask that who can register for the CBHA. The answer is anyone who lives within the CBHA boundaries (through Midget age players) can apply for the registration. The feeder communities for the CBHA are Acadia, Bay Auburn, Bonavista Downs, Lake, Bonavista, Cranston, Deer Run, Diamod Cove, Fairview, Legacy, Maple Ridge, Midnapore, Queensland, Parkland, Shawnessy, Somerset, Walden and Willow Park.

The Calgary buffalo hockey association is one of the four quadrant Elite associations of hockey in Calgary. The overall cost for the play of quadrant hockey is more than the community. If you are new to Calgary, or move to any other district within the boundaries, you must send a request to the registrar to approve a transfer in the designated community. After that, you care able to register with the CBHA. To know your association, you can log on to https://www.hockeycalgary.ca/association and enter your community. It will tell you the association you belong to.

Here, I want to share one more important thing. If you have already played AAA hockey in any other city, you still need to register for your city’s community hockey association as well as the Calgary buffalo hockey association. If not, you are left with no place to play at all. For this reason, you must check your designated community hockey association and follow their guidelines. For the registration with CBHA, you have to visit the webpage http://calgarybuffaloes.ca/page.php?pageid=51948. For tryout and conditioning camp registrations, the credit cards are accepted. To know the “Hockey Canada ID number”, you can logon to your HCR account and you will get the ID number there.

The CBHA has arranged conditioning camps for the Midget age players and goalies living within the boundaries of CBHA. The conditioning camp will be of two weeks. First week will be from Monday, August 17, 2015 to Friday, August 21, 2015. The second week for conditioning camp will be from Sunday, August 23, 2015 to Thursday, August 27, 2015. To register in the conditioning camps, registrations are open from June 1 till August 7. If you want to get registration in both of the conditioning camp weeks, you can do. On the thumb rule of come first have first; the registration is fair to all of the participants. In case, your name is listed in the waiting list, you can send us an email on lori.mcd@shaw.ca. The requests will be responded as soon as a spot becomes available. Remember, the CBHA does not send any reminder email or call to the persons for the start of conditioning camps. You have to logon to your HCR account to see your registrations (dates and timings).
