Volunteer Requirements

AAHA is a volunteer-run organization. AAHA's policy is that all families with skaters who are Mites and older will volunteer to support our organization.

Volunteer credit requirements are based upon the oldest skater in your family:

  • Mite/U6, Mite/U8 - 10 credits per family
  • Squirt/10U, PeeWee/12U, Bantam/14U - 20 credits per family 
  • Freeze families who also have a player at Fox Valley Youth Hockey Association will be required to complete 10 volunteer credits through AAHA's Dibs system.   These families will also need to complete Fox Valley's volunteer hours requirement. 

Each year, AAHA and Freeze supports Appleton Ice by volunteering  service hours. Families who volunteer for Appleton Ice can count those credits toward their AAHA or Freeze requirement as long as the credits are approved by the Operations Director or the DIBs Coordinator in advance. 

Please take a moment to read the Volunteer Work Requirements Policy.  All families should be familiar with this information

  • USA Hockey registration fees

  • travel costs

The costs below are considered part of your "individual team fees" and your team manager will set these fees for your child's team (typically between $125 and $200 per player).  These fees are mandatory and subject to the Payment Policy.

  • team tournament registration fees (over the 2 included)
  • ice fees for additional team practices - coach/team discretion

Skaters interested in playing on an AAHA Youth Team  must reside within the boundaries of the public school districts of Appleton, Hilbert, Kaukauna, Kimberly, or Little Chute to register and join AAHA. 

Some areas such as the Chilton, Freedom, Pulaski and Seymour school districts are unassigned to an association. Residents of those school districts may choose to join any association with a shared border to the school district boundaries. Once you join an association, that association becomes your home association and all rules regarding transfers apply.

The Fox Valley Youth Hockey Association includes residents of the following public school districts: Neenah, Menasha, Hortonville (which encompasses Greenville) and Shiocton.

A female player wishing to play on AAHA's female-only teams (Fox River Freeze) may play if AAHA is the nearest association offering one, provided her home association does not offer one at the appropriate level and the nearest association is not a WAHA approved co-op team. (Appropriate level is defined as a specific level or one higher.)
