“Last month, Hockey Canada, Hockey Manitoba, and Hockey Winnipeg learned of an alleged sexually exploitative relationship between a coach and a player between 2019 and 2021 through a video circulating online. The Winnipeg Police Service was notified, and we sent this information to Hockey Canada’s Independent Third Party (ITP).

We take allegations of this nature extremely seriously and the individual is ineligible to participate in Hockey Canada-sanctioned programs, including as a coach, guest coach or volunteer while the ITP complaint process is ongoing.

As the police and ITP investigations are ongoing, we are not able to comment further at this time.”

Ian McArton – Executive Director



Due to issues with inaccurate team entry, the MALE U18 A (A1-A, A1-B, A2-A, A2-B) divisions need to be re-made and re-scheduled.  Hockey Winnipeg is working on this as quickly as we can.  Any game that was previously scheduled is no longer confirmed and there will be no games played on the weekend of October 28-29 in order to allow for the schedule to be redone, reviewed by the Associations and then posted. Thank you for your patience!

Hockey Winnipeg knows all our volunteer coaches put in hours helping the players become better at the game and as people. That being said, we have one coach, Jonathan Schmidt, who went above and beyond this. We want to thank him for his quick thinking and heroic efforts to help save a player’s life after she was accidently cut at a practice in St Norbert.

1616 is the primary initiative of the Ladd Foundation, a Canadian registered charitable organization founded by 2-time Stanley Cup Champion, Andrew Ladd. 1616 is a FREE experiential program that is focused on mental, physical and social well-being for young hockey players and the people who support them. This virtually delivered program features story-telling from professional hockey players who teach 1616 concepts. Over the course of the season, 1616 will be a resource for parents and coaches to support the growth of their players both on and off the ice.

The 1616 season starts October 18th, so register your teams today! Deadline to register is October 16th, 2023.

Hockey Canada and its Members want to end the culture of silence that exists in parts of hockey. To help ensure that we are a safe space for raising concerns, Hockey Canada has updated the Maltreatment and Discrimination regulations as well as developed an Independent Third Party (ITP) reporting mechanism to process certain complaints. Going forward, Hockey Winnipeg will be following Hockey Canada’s procedure for any concerns regarding maltreatment and discrimination.

All skill levels are welcomed with no previous experience needed. Due to limited space availability, players cannot simultaneously play organized hockey and participate in the recreational program.
