Conditioning is In Session!

Thanks to all that launched AAHA 2016-17 successfully this week with the first round of pre-season conditioning sessions - our coaches were all excited to see the early returnees to the ice, and to start putting in the work!


ALL participants in AAHA pre-season Skating and Conditioning Sessions MUST be registered with AAHA for the season before hitting the ice! This is a liability requirement, so be sure to get signed up today.

In addition, all coaches and assistants should  immediately be confirming if their Safesport training is up-to-date and certificate filed with Ryan Kelbert at The training is good for two years, and your status (and certificate copy) is available by viewing your profile at If you are hitting expiration at the end of August (likely for many), you just need to take the refresher course, which takes maybe a half-hour. Don't leave it until the last minute, we want you out there!

FootballMania - Hitting Crunch Time


We've already raised over $1200 to help fund AAHA's commitment to purchasing additional weekend ice time for all levels for extra practices during the upcoming season - but let's all rally and blow it through the roof!

Reminder - each 20 dollar ticket sold returns $14 to the organization, and can be purchased online from basically anywhere! Except maybe that one rink in Altoona which seems to be magically encased by a glacier somewhere near True North. SO SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!

AAHA is in pursuit of a new Rental Gear Coordinator for the upcoming season, to replace the beloved Tim McGrath, who is retiring from this position to pursue new arenas to volunteer his many skills in helping our kids!

Tim has, however, pledged to assist the new coordinator to ensure a smooth transition, and guide the person (or persons) equipping the future skaters of our association in getting locked down with the best-fitting (though not always 'best-smelling) gear we've got available.

With the season almost upon us, we need to fill this role ASAP!

Full Season Volunteer Credits awarded for this position; please contact Matt or Becky if you know you should be the Chosen One.

Parent Meeting and Social!

The annual Parent Meeting will be Sunday, September 25th starting at 5pm over at the Super Bowl, following immediately by our first-ever Welcome Back to the Ice social right across the hallway.

Note: if you are a parent with only Mite level skaters in the association, you do not need to attend this meeting; a Mite-specific parents' meeting will be held a little later down the road for that program - date and time still to be finalized - but you're welcome to attend this meeting and/or the social should you wish.


Doing Some Shopping?

Sure you are! You deserve nice things! And doing it online is so wonderful - you don't even need to wear pants.

But before you do, would you please consider clicking the link to the right and starting your whirlwindvia that Amazon Smile program? Doing so contributes a percentage of the purchase cost from nearly every Amazon purchase you make to AAHA - at ZERO additional cost to you! (Unlike, say, when you vote and they ask you if you want to donate an extra three bucks to some shady election fund - NO SIREE, that's not how Amazon is taking care of us!)

We thank you for your support!
