AAHA Coaching Registration

AAHA Volunteer Registration

Coming Soon

 


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 offers both a youth (coed) hockey program called the Appleton Avalanche and a girls hockey program called the Fox River Freeze.

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, or Little Chute 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.

Some areas are "unassigned" and may not fall into specific boundaries.  If you are unsure whether or not you can join AAHA, contact our member services group.

3. Complete your background screen application.  Background screens are good for two seasons.  Please contact Amy at aahaoperations@gmail.com if you are not sure whether or not you require a screen this season.  The cost of the background screen is $20 this season.  Reimbursement can be requested.

2019-2020 Parent Meetings

Below are the slides from our 2019-2020 parent meetings.


What It Means to Be "Coachable"

Coaches and parents need to help kids learn how to be great!  The article below is a great read to get ready for the start of the season.



Doing Some Shopping?

Sure you are! You deserve nice things! And doing it online is so wonderful - you can do it in your pajamas!

Please consider using the Amazon Smile program to contribute 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!
