Criminal Record Checks

This year SMHA has enrolled in a new CRC procedure. All SMHA volunteers will need an up to date criminal record check done before the October 31st deadline. If you have done a CRC is the past, please contact to confirm your CRC is in good standing with SMHA. CRC's are good for 3 years, so if you had one done during/before the 2012 season, you will need to have it updated.

This year SMHA has enrolled in an online process through the Ministry of Justice. Full details are available on the Volunteer Certification page.

Firefighters Foundation Donates to SMHA

The Saanich Firefighter's Charitable Foundation was established in 2001 to pursue charitable objectives throughout the community of Saanich and Victoria Island. Our goals are accomplished by raising money through a variety of initiatives to benefit victims of fire related incidences, to support children in sport and to enhance community spirit. We are extremely proud to partner with the Saanich Minor Hockey Association; an organization that teaches children the principles of good sportsmanship, fair play, hard work, and team spirit.

From the Saanich Firefighter's Charitable Foundation, we thank you for your work in the community and remind you, that we can all make a difference.

SMHA Volunteers Update

BC Hockey has made changes to the expiration dates of the Respect in Sport/Speak out clinics that all SMHA volunteers must have in order to be on a team roster. Beginning this season, Respect in Sport/Speak Out will now have an expiry date of 4 years. This means that any MHA member that took either Respect in Sport or Speak Out from the 2010-2011 season or before will now be expired and need to re-certify.

Also beginning this 2014-2015 season, the expiration date for HCSP (Hockey Canada Safety People) has been reverted back to 3 years from 6 years.

If you plan on volunteering for your son or daughter’s team this season as a coach, Safety Person or manager and you took Respect in Sport or Speak Out prior to the 2010-2011 season, you will have to take the clinic again before December 1, 2014.

Please contact Nancy Moniz at if you have any questions.

SMHA Branded Clothing

Be one of the first to be sporting the revitalized Saanich brand!! THE SMHA Executive has been revising and updating our look. We want members to be excited and proud to wear Saanich colours.

Come on by the product display table during the initial assessment weekend of Aug 23&24. You can find us between the Gold and Green rinks from dawn to dusk. Sizing samples of Saanich Braves brand merchandise will be available to try on. We can meet your needs head to toe - hoodies, t-shirts, shorts, hats, track suits whether it is for your Player, Coach, Manager, Mom & Dad, Biggest Fan.

Individual orders will be taken on the weekend - cash or cheque only please. Following the Aug 23&24 weekend, merchandise will be available thru Hometown.

Team orders – Team managers will be responsible for team orders once their team is finalized and under way. We would encourage Coaches and team managers to view products available for their teams. Samples can be borrowed from the SMHA executive.

Please note: Individuals interested in T shirts are urged to put your order in Aug 23&24.
There is a minimum 12 T shirt order for teams and if your team doesn’t order the shirt you are interested in, you may have to wait for an order of 12 for that style.

This is our opportunity to have a consistent brand and look for teams representing SMHA and are asking teams to utilize the newly designed track suits (if they are going to order any this year). Hometown Sales will not make custom styles for individual teams, they will only produce what is on display for members.

Please note: Midget Rep players not attending the initial weekend of Aug 23&24 are urged to come to the rink and view products as they will not be available to view when you start your assessments Sept 2.

SMHA Juvenile Team

Juvenile Island League hockey is open to players ages 18 to 20 years as of December 31st of the current season. Most Juvenile players have supported their Minor Hockey Associations for many years and would like to continue playing hockey in the Minor Hockey program. These players choose to play Minor Hockey rather than go on to the Junior Leagues due to their commitments to school, trades training or work. They are playing for the "love of the game".

SMHA encourages graduating Midget players each season to play in the Juvenile Island League and continue their hockey experience.

We are hoping to grow this League this season.

Check out the Juvenile Division home page for much more information.

C Major Teams

C teams in all divisions this season will be balanced teams.  There will be no C Major teams in any division.

Please take the time to read the attached letter for more details on this VIAHA decision.

As VIAHA will no longer have the C major teams at any level, Saanich Minor Hockey will reopen the registration period for the Rep stream tryouts until the 15th of Aug 14. This extended period of time will allow those players who were hoping to make a C major team to make a decision on whether to tryout for the Rep program or remain in the recreational stream on a balanced team.

For those players deciding to tryout for the Rep stream, please contact Nancy Moniz as soon as possible to register at
