AAAHA has operated youth hockey programs since its founding in 1951 and is committed to providing instructional and competitive hockey opportunities, for all players without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, or national origin. AAAHA seeks to develop character, sportsmanship, and physical fitness among the youth in the local community by providing an environment that fosters a positive learning experience, teamwork, and friendship. AAAHA affiliates with USA Hockey, MAHA and other ice hockey associations to promote, encourage and improve the standard of hockey.
Our Learn To Play Hockey program is for our newest skaters, age 8-14.
Carrie Keil and her staff will run all on ice sessions for LTP as well as a handful of sessions for all house and instructional programs.
"Carrie coached many local AAAHA house and travel teams, and accepted the position of Skating Coach for the University of Michigan Men’s Hockey Team under current head coach, Red Berenson. As time went on, Carrie found herself working with a number of competitive youth teams in the southeastern Michigan area, and began training players on a private basis as well. Carrie is now currently the Power Skating Coach for the USA NTDP U-17 and U-18 teams housed in the newly renovated USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan, and has been a part of their remarkable program for the last 16 years".
Reminder- AAAHA is run primarily by volunteers. Our Ice Scheduler and Treasurer are volunteer positions.
The program costs and program schedules will be posted on the website when they become available. Typically, early August.
