About the AEHC - Airdrie Elite Hockey Committee

The Airdrie Elite Hockey Committee (AEHC) formerly the ACAA, is an Airdrie Minor Hockey Association (AMHA) committee that is responsible for setting the structure and direction for the male AAA stream of hockey within the Airdrie elite draw zone, as regulated and published by Hockey Alberta in the male Alberta Development Model (ADM).

The male AAA streams of hockey within the Airdrie draw zone of Hockey Alberta is comprised of U15 AAA, U17 AAA, and U18 AAA, which belong to the Alberta Elite Hockey League.


If something should arise during the hockey season, your first point of contact for resolution should always be your Team Manager. If the situation has you highly emotional and assuming there is no physical or mental harm or abuse, please allow a 24 hour cool down before meeting with your Team Manager. 

If the situation persists or is not being handled by your Team Manager or involves the team manager, your second point of contact will be your Division Director. 

The third point of contact would be to the AEHC Chair and should include your Division Director and Team Manager. This point of contact is only if there are still unresolved issues after meeting with or addressing your concerns with the previous two points of contact. The Division Director may escalate some concerns to the AMHA Executive Committee or the Discipline/Risk Management Coordinator, if required.

In the event that your concern needs to be addressed immediately due to a concern for the safety of a player, parent, manager or coaching staff, please call
