The AA Winnipeg East Railcats is a joint venture between
St. Boniface Minor Hockey Association (SBMHA) and the Transcona Minor Hockey Association (TMHA).
AA Hockey within the Hockey Winnipeg system begins at the Minor Peewee age (11 year olds) and continues on until the Midget age (16 &17 year olds).
Coaches are usually selected in the late spring/early summer and the organization will seek the best qualified coaches for each age category. Coaches will select the players for their team during the tryout process in the fall with players not making AA usually returning to the A level of hockey in either the SBMHA or the TMHA hockey areas.
