Hockey Canada only sanctions events in which all participants are registered members of Hockey Canada or USA Hockey. When traveling to a tournament or exhibition game outside of Manitoba you may need to verify your registration with the branch and a travel permit serves as the verification that your team and its members are registered with Hockey Manitoba.
Hockey Manitoba requires that you obtain a travel permit any time you travel outside the province for exhibition games or tournaments. If you are traveling within Manitoba you do not require a Hockey Manitoba travel permit however the Winnipeg and Norman regions require their teams to have approval any time they travel outside of their region.
If your team engages in league play against a team from another branch (ie: Saskatchewan) then you do not require a permit to attend regularly scheduled league games. However if you are attending a tournament hosted by one of those teams you do require one.
If your team will be traveling overseas please contact Peter Woods at peter:@:hockeymanitoba.ca
Please be sure to have a copy of the permit with you when you travel. Tournament organizers may ask that you submit a copy of the permit before you attend.
To avoid any obstacles please submit your travel permit request in a timely fashion to:
145 Pacifc Ave.
For information on Travel Permits please contact Ashley Fergusson at ashley:@:hockeymanitoba.ca
