AHA is pleased to announce that registration is now OPEN for our always popular Mite House League ("MHL"). The MHL is the next step for players birth years 2013-2015 who have completed AHA's Learn to Play or a similar program.
Please note that players who already registered for mite placements in the spring but were not selected for a travel team do NOT need to register again at this time and will automatically be enrolled into the MHL.
We plan a traditional start to the season in September, with parity teams being formed during the first month of practices and then games starting in October and running through March. MHL players should generally expect to have two practices and one game per week, and will be able to participate in supplemental programs open to AHA members.
Tuition for the program is $1500 per player for the season. A $200 deposit is required at the time of registration; the balance will be due once players are assigned to teams in the fall.
Please spread the word to friends, family, neighbors, and classmates who are not currently AHA members and who may be interested in participating. If you have any questions, please contact AHA's Mite Director Joe Barbagallo at email@example.com. See you on the ice!
We've all heard a lot about shots in the news recently. Some states are running promotions where you can win a prize if you get your COVID vaccine. Even the president has encouraged everyone who is able to get their shot this summer if they haven't already.
Here at the AHA we would like to issue a different shot-related challenge to our members. How many hockey shots can your player take this summer?
Today we are kicking off the AHA's Summer Shot Challenge. The idea is to get the kids outside and spending a little bit of time each day getting ready for the upcoming season. So make sure to set up that net away from any windows and let those shots fly! Wristers, backhanders, top shelf or down low - fire away and work on your skills.
For our members 8 and under, we are challenging them to complete 1000 shots by September 1. That's 100 shots a week over the next ten weeks.
For our members ages 9-12, the goal is 2500 shots for the summer.
And for our oldest members, ages 13 and up, the ultimate goal is 5000 shots. That breaks down to 500 per week, or 100 each weekday.
We will go by the honor system for keeping track, but please send us videos of your players participating in the challenge to our social media platforms. There will be prizes for those who attain (or come really close) to the goals. And while we can't promise a million dollars like some states are doing for the vaccine, we can get you some really cool AHA swag in time for the season to start in September!
We are organizing an equipment drive again this year and would like to collect all of your gently used gear that your child has outgrown. This program is primarily targeting smaller equipment for our entry level skaters so that we can help defray the costs of playing hockey.
This year we would also like to collect all of your old AHA practice jerseys should you wish to pass them along.
Please bring your used gear to the Phillips Academy ice rinks parking lot where we have placed a collection bin in the far right corner along the fence. (Look for the Learn to Play/Learn to skate signs).
If you need equipment for your growing children and will be skating this summer please contact Henry Gourdeau at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to check with us if you need equipment in the fall as well (plenty of gear for LTS-PeeWee aged kids).
