AA & AAA – Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Winnipeg request that all players trying out for the Advanced Athletics (AA & AAA Hockey) program first register with their home hockey association.  Therefore, all players residing in the South Winnipeg or St. Norbert catchment area are recommended to register online for A hockey with SWHA.

High School – High School hockey is a separate program in Winnipeg.  Unless your player is 100% confident that they will make the high school team, SWHA recommends that the player register for A hockey as well and attend SWHA tryouts pending the high school results.  Players not registered with SWHA cannot be placed on AA or A1 teams if they haven’t attended tryouts.

AA, AAA and High School Player Refunds:

Players/parents must email the SWHA Registrar to request a refund if the player is successful in their attempt to make a AA, AAA or HS team (
Players who attend SWHA tryouts are required to cover ice fees for pre-season skates ($15/session) and tryouts ($20/session).  The amount will be deducted from any refund.
Note:  SWHA is no longer accepting post-dated cheques for players trying out for AA, AAA or HS teams. When registering, there will be an option to pay by installments (this is ONLY valid for AA, AAA or HS players).  Your credit card will be charged approximately $100 at time of registration and the remaining amount will be charged in October if you have not already contacted the SWHA Registrar to cancel your SWHA Registration.
Upon receipt of email notification, a credit for the SWHA registration fee will be applied back to your credit card [1]
Failure to inform the SWHA Registrar via email by October 2nd for AA & AAA or October 12th for HS will result in the remaining amount of full registration being charged to your credit card.
[1] All credit card refunds processed by SWHA will be subject to a refund processing fee, the minimum of 5% of original credit card payment or $20.
