Welcome to the home of the Appleton Wizards and Fox River Freeze!

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, Hilbert, Kaukauna, Kimberly, Little Chute, or Sherwood or the village of Black Creek (Black Creek Elementary School or Middle School; Seymour School District) 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.

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 linking to the  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!
