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.

The Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association, VSAHA, is looking forward to the start of the many state tournaments across our state. Check out the VSAHA State Tournament site for details. Our host associations are working hard to make sure their arena and staff of volunteers are ready to make it the best possible experience for everyone. I am sure we will see some exciting games with great plays, close calls, and a few lucky bounces. It is truly an exciting time and a chance for all of us to show off this game we love.
With an increase in discipline hearings and a focus on respecting game officials, I want to remind us all that we all play a part in making this a positive experience for everyone. As the games begin and decisions are made by players, coaches, officials, and our volunteers, it is important to remember that this is just a game. We are all human and mistakes may occur. How we handle our actions and reactions in challenging times can leave a powerful message.
No matter how you are taking part in our state tournaments as a player, coach, official or spectator, I would like to remind you that we have high expectations for everyone.
