August 25 2021

AMHA welcomes all member families back to the 2021-22 season!

Your Board and Staff have been busy all summer working on all things on ice and off!  We are very pleased with our progress on a number of projects and you will see many improvements to the rink when you hit the ice in a few short weeks.

Our registration system is ready to go and we will open TeamSnap no later than Monday, August 30 for online sign-up.  TeamSnap makes it very straightforward for returning players and we will share all relevant instructions via our News items and web site.
