Special Events are events that fall outside of regular hockey programming. For each of these events, teams must ensure that a Special Event Sanction Request form is submitted to the BC Hockey office at least 7 to 10 days prior to the start of the event in order for the request to have Hockey Canada Insurance coverage extended to the event.
If you are using a private or entrepreneurial instructor that is not registered as a member of the team (such as dry land training, goaltender coaching or specialized skating training) the instructor must be registered as a BC Hockey Associate Member. You may contact your local registrar to find out whether or not the instructor is a BC Hockey Associate Member. If the instructor is not already a member, he or she should complete the Associate Membership Application form located on the applications page of the BC Hockey website:
Please note that Associate Members also need to complete Respect in Sport and Criminal Record Checks for BC Hockey. Private Instructors will not be approved for participation until all requirements are met.
Please remember that not all activities are eligible for sanctioning. Please visit the Special Events page of the BC Hockey website at www.bchockey.net/RiskManagement/SpecialEvents.aspx for additional information regarding Special Event Sanctioning.
