The Sturgeon Sting began play in the 2014 season with U13, U15 and U18 AA teams. Sturgeon Sting teams draw elite level hockey players from 6 minor hockey associations:
CR Knights Minor Hockey Association - Calahoo, Riviere Qui Barre and surrounding area
CNN Minor Hockey Association - Bon Accord, Gibbons and surrounding area
Athabasca & District Minor Hockey Association
Westlock Minor Hockey Association
Barrhead Minor Hockey Association
Wabasca/Desmarais Minor Hockey Association
Sturgeon Hockey Club - Morinville, Legal and surrounding area
The focus of the Sting hockey program is to develop hockey players to be able to move on into AAA, College and Jr. Hockey careers. We place a premium on developing coaching and player skills and work hard to prepare players for the next level of hockey. In the 2018/19 season for instance, there were 7 players playing U15 AAA hockey who had started their elite careers playing Sting U13AA. We are also proud of our U18AAA players and our WHL players who played their AA hockey here in Morinville.
