AAA, AA, and A level hockey at KC
KC’s Rep program is an elite-level hockey program run by Knights the of Columbus Athletics Club that includes players from the entire city. Novice to Midget aged hockey players from all of the Edmonton KC hockey house clubs are eligible to attend tryouts and play for our rep teams.
KC Rep teams exemplify the Knights of Columbus principle of unity: “None of us is as good as all of us.”
What We Offer
The Knights of Columbus Hockey Club is built on the principle that hockey should be a fun way for young men and women to develop their skills, build a work ethic, learn sportsmanship and build friendships that can last a lifetime. The program is made up of the city-wide KC Hockey Athletics Club alongside ‘House’ clubs in different areas of the city. KC hockey starts at the initiation level (age 4-6) and has teams at all levels up to midget aged players (15-17 years old).
Hockey is a great game that can start a lifelong passion for the sport at a young age, but it can also be confusing for parents who aren’t familiar with the game or how the leagues are set up in the Edmonton area. The KC ‘Timbits’ Initiation program is specifically designed to help young players learn the game in a supportive atmosphere, and KC accepts registrations from anywhere in Edmonton. For parents who aren’t sure about what kind of equipment they need, we’ve also posted a full equipment guide that will give you all the info you need to get your little player safely on the ice.
At KC, hockey is more than a game. It’s a place where young people can come together to compete and to learn discipline, sportsmanship, the value of hard work and team play — the kind of life lessons that players will take with them off the ice and into the rest of their lives. KC hockey is designed to provide an environment that will help players develop to their full potential, regardless of what level they are currently playing at. And, maybe most importantly, at KC we strive to ensure every player that puts on our jersey has fun, and develops a love of the game that makes us all so proud to be a part of the KC hockey family.

KC Tryout Process
Tryouts can be a stressful time for players and parents. Find out how KC ensures tryouts are fair for all players. At KC the objectives of player evaluation include providing a fair and impartial assessment of a player’s total hockey skills, ensuring players have a reasonable opportunity of being selected to a team appropriate to their skill levels, and providing uniformity and consistency in the evaluation process.
KC Ice Exchange
Is your team looking to pick up an extra practice, or do you have an ice slot assigned to your team that you can’t use? The KC Ice Exchange allows teams to find and trade ice to help our club better use all our ice times.
Hockey is a great game, but it can be expensive to register a player and provide them with the equipment they need. Fortunately there are a number of sources of financial assistance that can help.
The 'Respect in Sport' Program
The Respect in Sport Program is an online certification program from Hockey Alberta designed to protect players and providing a safe and fun environment for all of participants.
