CALGARY CRUSADERS/HSL

The Calgary Crusaders are excited to announce that we will have teams join the Alberta based, Hockey Super League for the 2018/2019 season! Our Crusader teams will feature players born in the following age groups 2010/2009/2008/2007 and 2006.

Our goal with the Crusaders is to provide an alternative option to traditional minor hockey for young players throughout the Calgary and surrounding areas.  By practicing two to three times a week, complemented with one off ice training session either at Skillz Skating and Shooting Center, or at one of our dry land training providers in Calgary, the Crusaders program has everything your child needs to develop and grow in a fun and competitive environment.  

The Crusaders home facility the Great Plains Arena located at 5749 76 Ave SE, Calgary, AB, is where Crusader teams will practice and play their exhibition games during the season.  With Skillz Skating and Shooting Center moving to Great Plains Arena, this will allow the the Crusaders program to train on and off ice all at the same facility.

About Hockey Super League

Founded in Edmonton, Alberta in 2017, the HSL is an alternative to Minor Hockey for players born in 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005. The HSL is not a registered league with Hockey Canada or Hockey Alberta, we are independent of these organizations. We believe that hockey is defined by the people who play the game.
