Hockey Sanctions

Sanctioning Procedures
All schools must receive sanction by the NBIAA to play non-member teams. The sanctioning procedures of the NBIAA are clearly stated in Article 3 of the NBIAA By-Laws.
Application deadlines by member schools for tournaments or exhibition games with teams within the ‘Region’ (Maritime Provinces and Maine) must be submitted at least two (2) weeks prior to the event and at least four (4) weeks prior to the event when involving teams outside the “Region”.

Applications must be submitted using the NBIAA online sanction request and should include the start time of the teams first game. A reminder that no exhibition games shall take place during instruction hours between Monday and Thursday as per OR 15.5.

Schools are reminded not to plan exhibition games or tournaments until they have received proper sanction.

The New Brunswick Interscholastic Athletic Association requires that all NBIAA teams have their school district’s approval before leaving the Province. Additional Insurance is required when travelling and playing outside of Canada. Proof of such travel insurance for sport accidents must be sent to the HNB and NBIAA prior to departure.
