What makes them great? Include a sentence or two about the local sponsor here.
The purpose of MAHA shall be to provide the opportunity for the youth within MAHA’s service area to play amateur hockey at prescribed levels which may consist of T-Blades, Mites, Squirts, Pee-Wees, Bantams, Midgets, and corresponding girls’ teams such as U-10, U-12, or U-14. It shall also be a purpose of MAHA to prepare its players through attention to skill development and competition for future play at high school level.
MAHA's Girls Try Hockey For Free was a huge success! Lots of new faces!
MAHA and Milton kick off their season with a power skating clinic on Tuesday! Let the fun begin!
The season is almost upon us! We are scheduled to be on the ice by the first of October. The Board has been busy this summer putting together plans for the upcoming season, and I would just like to share a few details with you all.
We will be combining teams with Milton this year at the Squirt, Peewee, and Bantam levels. They were unable to field individual teams, and we decided that we could accommodate them. This also helps us supplement our numbers which allows for more appropriate team placement, as well as promoting the sport, and keeping kids on the ice. We are anticipating three teams at squirt level, two teams at the peewee level, and two teams at the bantam level.
Dan McFall is also coming back this fall to do our pre-season skating clinic like last year. It will be open to all members (with the exception of T-Blades) who can attend on a non-mandatory basis. We understand that players are also students, participate in fall athletes, and are hunters. Players are not required to attend, nor will it be held against them. This is merely a free opportunity that we provide your kids to get back into the swing of skating and shake the rust off. These sessions will be on Tuesday, and Thursday, nights starting on October 1st. The practice schedule can be found on the MAHA website calendar. There will be team practices on Saturdays in October as well to provide your player ice time with potential teammates and coaches. The goal is that there are potentially 11 sessions of ice that your player could take advantage of before evaluations even take place.
Evaluations will be the weekend of the 26th and 27th of October. The plan is to have non-level, non-parent evaluators as the majority of evaluators at each level, supplemented by coaches who have seen the players play. We are also looking to have 4-5 evaluators at each level, to provide as much data as possible. We will also be looking to have players declare positions at the older levels (Peewee and Bantam) to also provide us with more information. We are hoping that players will have ample time to get back into a routine, feel comfortable, and work hard before evals even begin.
T-Blades will begin on Friday, October 11th at 6pm. Please contact Karen at email@example.com if you are in need of equipment.
There will be a Girls Try Hockey for Free Event on October 5th from 1-3pm. We are having the Paul Smith's Women's Team and the MVU Girls' Team on the ice for this event. One of the biggest goals of the MAHA Board is to build up our girl's program. We are very close to having a team at the 9-12 age range, and we will have an 8U Girls team this year. All the MAHA girls are encouraged to take part in this event and to bring your friends. If you know of any girls who are interested, please share this event with them.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any Board Member, their contact information can be found on our website www.MAHAhockey.org. In the meantime, enjoy the last few weeks of Fall Sports, and see you at the rink!
