Welcome to the home of the Appleton Wizards!

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.

Volunteer Credit Requirements

Since AAHA is a volunteer-run organization, each AAHA family is required to fulfill a certain number of volunteer credits. For those with players at the Squirt/U10 level and above, the requirement is 15 credits. Mite families are required to fulfill 7 credits. Please note that this is per family, not per skater.

All volunteer credits must be scheduled by March 1 and completed by March 29th. A skater may be eligible to participate in the Monsters on Ice Festival or the State Tournament if a family does not meet the minimum volunteer requirement. Unfulfilled credits will be billed at a rate of $40/credit hour.

NOTE: Any volunteerism not posted on AAHA's Dibs session will not be eligible for AAHA volunteer credits unless approved in advance by the AAHA Board. Volunteering to help at USA Hockey Nationals (March 26-29) will eligible for volunteer credits. Sign up below using the VolunteerSpot link.

NHL Study on Cross Ice Hockey

Mites who play cross ice (vs full ice) hockey have:

  • 2x more body contact
  • 6x more shots
  • 2x more puck touches
  • 2x more pass attempts
  • 5x more passes received
  • 2x more changes of direction

These statistics are per player, not per team. The more advanced the player, the greater the benefit from playing cross ice. Watch the video below!
