About the ALLIANCE
Since being founded in 1993, the ALLIANCE has always positioned the organization as a leader in Canada in the administration and development of the game of hockey for all player and adult volunteer participants. As a result, the ALLIANCE offers a number of programs designed to enhance the performance, organization and safety of our participants. This innovative thinking has led to the ALLIANCE being one of the most recognized and original organizations in amateur sport.
