*** Effective 2015-16, Edmonton now participates in the Alberta Development Model Player Movement process for Bantam AAA, Minor Midget AAA and Midget AAA ***

Alberta Development Model PDF

The Elite Stream AAA process will by conducted by the league governors or Hockey Edmonton designate:

Midget AAA – AMHL
Minor Midget AAA – AMMHL
Bantam AAA – ABMHL

The Player Movement process provides a maximum of 3 tryouts:

Tryout #1 – Resident Team
Tryout #2 – Zone Team or next closest club for rural
Tryout #3 – Team most in need

This is a club selection, invitation and rotation process based on criteria. While a player may request a tryout at a desired club, there are no guarantees or obligations on tryout assignment as a club reserves the right to decline a tryout. The club may not require a goalie, defence or forward.
