WEFH Refunds

We appreciate your patience as we have worked to ensure that WEFH refunds as much as possible to all families. We want to thank SBMHA, TMHA, Hockey Winnipeg, and Hockey Manitoba for the support as we all negotiate these unprecendented times. We also want to thank Sport MB for a grant that will help to cover our COVID costs so we don't have to pass those on.

TMHA will be refunding families directly to method of registration fee payment and WEFH is refunding SBMHA families by etransfer. We have started these etransfer today with the U9 group and will be working on as many as possible throughout the weekend. If you are a St. Boniface family and U15 or under and have not received your refund by Sunday, May 9th, please contact Teri at:

U18 Saints and U18 Sippola A1 refunds will be processed May 10th and 11th. U18 Dube A1 refunds will come direct from team.

Stay well!

SBMHA refund statement

St Boniface Minor Hockey Association

February 9, 2021

Dear SBMHA Members,

Due to the cancellation of the 2020/21 season by Hockey Winnipeg, registration fees paid to SBMHA in the fall will be refunded to members on or around April 30th, net of amounts retained by our governing bodies (Hockey Winnipeg, Hockey Manitoba and Hockey Canada), and certain operating costs incurred by SBMHA up until the shutdown. Our Treasurer will calculate refunds for each family and will consolidate by team and make lump sum payments to the team accounts. The team managers will then distribute refunds to families from there.

If your child plays for a Railcats or a WEFH team, your refunds will be distributed by those associations.

We are encouraging teams to commence training activities as soon as it is deemed safe by the province. Any ice rental or other costs associated with operating team training will run through the team accounts.

We thank you in advance for your patience. This will be a large undertaking and it will take a significant amount of time.

-SBMHA Executive




Hockey Winnipeg Directive Cancelling 2020-2021 Season

Hockey Winnipeg Directive Cancelling 2020-2021 Season link

Unfortunately, the date has come that Hockey Winnipeg has made the difficult decision that having a viable season is no longer possible. The current restrictions are in place until at the earliest Feb. 13th, many arenas have or will soon remove ice, and the logistic of scheduling a season, not knowing what the next week will bring, is just not possible.
They are not saying that if the provincial health directives change, and centres and arenas are allowed to open that we cannot have players on the ice, just that there won't be a formal season. As indicated, Hockey Winnipeg is committed to supporting us with this.
Any refunds need to be coordinated with HWPG, SBMHA and TMHA so we appreciate your patience with this. We will also be working with the teams to refund any money collected that hasn't been spent.
The WEFH board would like to thank all of coaches, players, families and volunteers for supporting us in what we hope is a unique year. We hope everyone stays healthy and safe and we will see you on the ice as soon as possible!
As always, we welcome any questions and comments.
Teri, Jacquie and the WEFH board


Hockey Winnipeg and its member Minor Hockey Associations are committed to providing quality hockey programs in 2021, in a manner that is safe and responsible.  Hockey Winnipeg is currently planning a number of different approaches to hockey in 2021 with the goal of implementation under various levels of restrictions that may be in place from the Manitoba Provincial Government.  Once hockey receives approval to re-enter return to play and Hockey Winnipeg receives approval from our governing bodies – Hockey Manitoba and Sport Manitoba – we will return to the ice as soon as is reasonably possible.  While we do not know what the next few weeks hold, it is our intention to begin this program implementation as soon as possible following the lifting of restrictions.

Hockey Winnipeg would like to remind our members that the health and safety of our entire community is of the greatest importance at this time.  By complying with the current restrictions we can all play a part in the return of hockey and many other valuable activities.  Over the next few weeks outdoor hockey rinks and frozen lakes will be available for use. We encourage everyone to be physically active but must remind our members that organized team activities on these surfaces are strictly prohibited by public health orders.  Any violation of the Public Health Act and specifically Order #12 (or any other relevant orders) will not only result in enforcement from the Province of Manitoba but Hockey Winnipeg may take additional disciplinary action as well.

Hockey Winnipeg would like to wish all of our members a Merry Christmas, a safe holiday season and a Happy New Year.  We look forward to dropping the puck in 2021!

Ian McArton

Executive Director, Hockey Winnipeg
