REP MIXED (CAHL) - CMHA offers a traditional competitive Rep program for male and interested female players. This is competitive hockey and involves travel to other southern and central Alberta towns.  The Rep program is a tiered program - athletes go through a competitive evaluation process and are placed on tiered teams according to skill level.  Rep teams participate in the Central Alberta Hockey League   Cochrane Minor Hockey supports the number of teams determined by registration numbers and ice availability for the REP program.  Note: Number of U16 or U18 REP teams will be determined by number of registrations received. 

Current program standard - 2 practices per week for U11, U13, U15, U16/U18.  1-2 games per weekend.

Female Rep - CMHA offers a competitive female program for U11 through U18 female hockey players. The U11, U13, U15 and U18 Female teams play within a league (i.e., RMFHL, CAHL) directed by the Board of Directors of CMH on the advice of the VP Female Director, and therefore the league will determine the boundaries. Female Rep is tiered hockey with players placed on teams after competitive evaluations, but the number of teams per age-group will depend upon registration numbers.

If we have space in the female program when new Cochrane members are eligible to register on June 16th then we will accept new player registrations for our female program.
