Handbook Item

Residential Qualifications


a)    Pursuant to Hockey Canada Regulation F–7, no residential qualification shall be required for players registered with a Junior team.

b)    A player who has been registered to play U18 hockey may at the end of his U18 eligibility or at the end of any succeeding season in age limit hockey, if he so desires, without release, register with a team of a higher category within the Branch, but he may only exercise this after completing the current season and prior to registering at the commencement of the next season.

Nothing in this section shall prevent a player from transferring to a team in a higher category, provided that he is first properly released in accordance with the regulations.
