In 2017-18 season, Atom age girls in Leduc Minor Hockey Association will have the power of choice. Girls born in 2007-2008 will have the option of registering on a co-ed hockey team or on an all-girls team! Under special circumstances, consideration may be given to accepting 2nd year Novice or 1st year Pee Wee athletes to join this Atom team.
LMHA eagerly welcomes girls who are new to hockey, girls from other Associations (that don't have a female team to play on), and girls that are looking to make a switch from their current ice sport.
Did you know? Every girl in Alberta has the right to choose if she would like to play on a co-ed team or a female team. For a young girl whose home Association does not offer a female team for her to play on, she has the right to request "Player Movement" (often referred to as a 'release') to move to the next closest Association that has a female team for her age. Resident Associations cannot deny release to a girl who is seeking an all-girls team.
