The NWZ Hockey Association is a member of Hockey Edmonton and has been providing organized hockey since 1972. The NWZ Hockey Association is open to all boys and girls, 13 through 17 years of age. You will find our program fun, yet competitive, with our main goal being the development of skating and hockey skills.
The NWZ Hockey Association area is not restricted by inter-city boundaries. Any player resident in the City of Edmonton may join our program.
***IMPORTANT NOTE FOR U15 AND U18 PLAYERS wanting to try out for CAC's U15 AND U18 Elite Programs (AA/AAA) or KC's U15 AND U18 Elite Programs (AA/AAA). You DO NOT register with the NWZ Hockey Association (NWZHA) at this time.

Hockey Canada has implemented a new online registration system. The provider of this new online system is a company named SPORDLE. The links, accounts and passwords previously used for online registration WILL NOT WORK with the new system.
The new registration system requires a MY SPORDLE ACCOUNT which the parent creates and then adds all members of the household to his account - including coaches - to register for hockey. Please call the office - Lorraine at (780) 721-1477 - if you need assistance setting up your new registration account.
Online Registration - NWZ HOCKEY ASSOCIATION ONLINE REGISTRATION LINK - follow the link and then log in to your MY SPORDLE ACCOUNT to access the NWZ Hockey Association registration options.
