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.

Registration Dates for Squirt/10U, PeeWee/12U and Bantam 14U: Aug 10 - Sept 25. A late registration fee of $100.00 applies to registrations received after 5:00pm on Sept 15.

Registration Dates for Mite/6U and Mite/8U: Aug 10 - Oct 15. New players graduating from Appleton Ice's Learn to Skate and Learn to Play programs will be accepted through Dec 31.

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!


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.

Welcome Message From the Prez

AAHA Night at the Gamblers
