Update on Registrations and Placements

Members - a quick update regarding registrations and team placements for next season:

All players who intend to participate in AHA mites through high school next season need to be registered by next Friday, March 27th. This will enable our placements committee to have an accurate player headcount.  

At this time, we are considering several options for the team placement process - all of which are of course contingent on when we can get back on the ice. We will communicate updates as soon as is practicable. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact placements@andoverhockey.org. 

We hope you and your families are healthy and safe.

AHA Season Suspended

On March 13th, the executive committee of the Board of Directors of the Andover Hockey Association agreed to suspend the AHA season indefinitely. This decision was made to protect the health and safety of our membership and to preserve our standing as a responsible member of the community at large.

The AHA remains in constant communication with Phillips Academy and the Valley Hockey League and will provide further updates as they become available. The AHA Board also will be discussing best options for placements for next season shortly and will communicate information to members as soon as possible. Registration for next season will remain open but the on-ice evaluations scheduled to begin on Monday will not be held at this time.

If you have specific questions related to registration or placements, please direct them to placements@andoverhockey.org.

Thank you in advance for your support and patience as we continue to navigate this unprecedented situation. We wish all of our members and their families good health.

Registration Now Open for 2020-2021 Season

Hello AHA Families,

We are excited to inform you that registration is now open for the 2020-21 season for our mite through high school programs.  To register, simply log into our website and choose the appropriate player and program for which you are registering.  If you are new to AHA, you will need to create an account with our website partner, CrossBar.  An updated schedule of dates for on-ice evaluations is available here (all sessions will take place at the Phillips Academy Ice Rinks). Note there have been some changes to the Boys’ HSHS schedule which was previously published. Players will receive advance notification via e-mail of the specific sessions to which they are assigned. Should you have any questions surrounding registration or the evaluation and placement process in general, please feel free to reach out to placements@andoverhockey.org.   

The upcoming season marks the 50th anniversary of the Andover Hockey Association, one of the longest running and largest community based amateur hockey associations in New England, and we are excited for what the future holds for your organization. Looking back on this past season, we have received great feedback from players and parents alike on our skills instructors, set practice schedules and new and improved website and social media presence. As previewed during our parents’ town hall meeting in January, we have several other enhancements planned to make this coming season even better. Given all of these improvements as well as to keep up with the ever increasing cost of ice time, the Board of Directors has approved a slight increase to tuition levels across our programs for next season. We remain committed to keeping hockey as affordable for our members as possible while delivering a world class experience.   

If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at president@andoverhockey.org. Good luck for a successful completion to this season and I look forward to seeing you again at the rink next year!  

Best regards,

Matt McLaughlin 

AHA President
