The Appleton Area Hockey Association (AAHA) is committed to developing competitive youth hockey in the Appleton, Wisconsin area while teaching our skaters the value of winning ... and losing ... with grace and dignity. Our aim is to increase our skaters' enjoyment of the game of hockey, advance their skills, and to help develop their character.
AAHA is a Division 1 member association of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA, Region 3). Skaters interested in joining AAHA must reside within the boundaries of the public school districts of Appleton, Black Creek, Hilbert, Kaukauna, Kimberly, Little Chute, or Sherwood to register and join AAHA. If you reside in another city or school district you must register with the appropriate association such as Fox Valley, De Pere, Green Bay, Waupaca or Shawano.
The U14 captured the State Championship crown at the WAHA State Tournament in a 6-5 double-overtime win on a short-handed goal. Congratulations to the team and coaches. And special congratulations to Lauryn Hull and Annika Horman on their 2nd state championship title as part of the AAHA Girls Program.
BackCheck Hockey is a boys summer hockey program for previous B and C level skaters. Beginning June 7th and continuing every Sunday through August 23rd, the 5:00 to 7:00 time slot at AFIC is reserved for the boys. More than 40 players are on the list so far and I hope to get a few more to help reduce cost. The response has been Squirt heavy, so I anticipate the first hour will be dedicated to Squirts and the second hour to Pee Wees and Bantams. This is not a strict separation, however, as there are probably some 2nd year Squirts who would like to skate with the older players and some 1st year Pee Wees who may benefit from extra ice time and skate in both sessions. Based on the response so far, I anticipate cost being around $75 for 12 one hour sessions. If there is money left over, we can use it for a pizza party at the end of the summer.
Contact Doug Meyer for more information.
The AFIC will be offering the Hockey 1-4 skills program as part of their Learn to Skate sessions this summer. This is a great way to help your Mite, Squirt or beginner PeeWee/Bantam player improve his/her hockey skating skills! AAHA strongly recommends that all skaters complete the Hockey1-4 program before registering for the Mite program in the Fall. The cost is $75/skater for each session and includes a free punch card for admission to open skate for the duration of the session.
Classes are on Wednesdays from 5:00-5:25pm or 5:25-5:50pm.
Session 1: March 18 - April 22
Session 2: May 13 - June 24
Session 3: July 8 - August 12
