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.

Searching ....

And now we're looking for round 3 of our new leaders and coordinators to ensure this season is more successful than ever before!
 
Look for calls for application this week on the website and at AFIC for the next wave of AAHA leadership, including:
 
Monsters On Ice Tournament Coordinator - AAHA's annual celebration of the future of hockey is a yearly highlight not just for our Mites players, but a shining point for the organization annually, for a tournament that draws teams statewide and en masse! We need an enthusiastic and motivated individual to take the lead position in putting this year's MoI together, as Becky's greatly increased responsibilities as Program Operations Director simply demand an new generation take this Tournament to the future!
 
Parent Liasion/Member Services Assistant - With the volume of responsibilities our friend Sheri Treu has taken on...we need an individual to serve as her lead communications point with membership regarding concerns outside of on-ice matters, and assist with administration where need. Will also assume the role of Team Manager Coordinator moving forward.
 
Promotions and Public Relations Committee - AAHA needs about 5 individuals that can take the lead for our grassroots growth and communications - from Try Hockey For Free, 2 and 2, to Tournament and Fundraising Promotions and Media Relations, this new, long overdue branch will take charge in raising awareness and exposure throughout not only our existing membership, but our sometimes neglected community.
 
And we're always looking for additions to our Fundraising crew - thanks to  Angela Shalkhauser, the Aschenbrenner Duo of Cherry and Scott, and Jeff Bojarski for stepping forward with fresh ideas, energy, and contributions already! And a special thanks to Brad Beyer - who has done an unbelievable amount of ground-floor research for future grant opportunities before the year has even gotten rolling. We've got some pretty high aspirations in the next couple years, and all the efforts help out incredibly!

Conditioning Info 2015

Skaters will be required to check in prior to each conditioning session. Skaters must be registered with AAHA for the 2015-16 season prior to participating in any conditioning sessions.

Conditioning groups are formed based upon last name. Please attend your assigned session only.

Goalies: Please attend the Goalie conditioning sessions, not the Squirt, PeeWee or Bantam conditioning sessions.

Take the Pledge! 

 
Check out the Liberty Mutual PlayPositive® program and help AAHA win $2500.

Coaching Announcements

08/16/2015, 2:45pm CDT
By Matt Prendergast

The following Head Coaches have been recommended by the Coaching Selection Committee and approved by their Board Advisors:
 
U10 - Jeff Bojarski
U12 - Bill Gillard
U14 - Scott Horman
Squirt A - Paul Lombardi
PeeWee C - Tom Nichol
PeeWee A - Jim Patten
Bantam A - Bob Mandoli
 
AAHA does have strong Squirt B and C and PeeWee B candidates, however due to some personnel and scheduling variables (which are typical this early in the year) that are still to be finalized, we need to hold off on the announcement of those selections for a bit longer to secure the necessary commitments. 
 
Please note: We are currently still in need of candidates for Bantam C, as there have been no submissions to this point for that level.


Hockey 1-4 Program

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 4: August 19 - September 24
