To be eligible to play for IHNSW in the McCrae-Williamson,
Ginsberg, Kurt De Fris, Tange, Joan McKowen Memorial and Brown National Championships,
a player must be a permanent resident, have a visa of two years
or more validity, or be an Australian Citizen. No import players
are permitted to compete in these Championships.
Strict rules govern the inclusion of non-Australian
born players representing Australia in IIHF Championships. To avoid
future disappointments, IHNSW refers all players with permanent
residency or intentions of gaining permanent residency, to the IHA
Handbook for clarification of eligibility criteria.
Non-Australian born players under 18 years of age who
arrive in Australia after their tenth birthday - regardless of whether
they previously played ice hockey or not, must have held an IIHF
transfer Letter of Approval for a minimum of two years in order
to be considered eligible to play in a National Team.
To avoid future possible disappointment, IHNSW suggests
that all non-Australian born players apply for an IIHF transfer
Letter of Approval if he/she is:
An Australian resident (citizen
Under the age of 18 years; and
Migrated to Australia after their tenth birthday.
