House "Move Up" Requests

Move-Up Requests for House Players
It is the default policy of AAAHA/MAHA to place individual registrants on teams in the appropriate age division dictated by player birth year.

Requests to move players up to an older House division level are exceptions to this policy. Requests should be submitted, in writing to the Executive Director and ACE Director to be considered.

It is the policy of AAAHA to have all players first participate in evaluations within their natural age group. The evaluation panel will be instructed to identify any players whose skill level is such that a play-up request, if previously tendered, would qualify for further evaluation. Such candidates will then be evaluated along with players in the older age division. If the player in question clearly evaluates in the upper 50% of the older age division and does not displace an otherwise age qualified player, move up requests may be approved after review by the Executive Director and ACE Director on a case by case basis. Decisions of the Executive Director, ACE Director are final and may not be appealed.

For the 2020-2021 season, move-up requests must be submitted no later than August 15, 2020.



AAAHA House Hockey League

Ann Arbor House Teams are all a part of the Little Caesars Amateur Hockey League for the Fall/Winter season. Our Fall/Winter season runs from September through March. 

AAAHA House teams will have power skating lessons with Keil Power Skating again this season.

Age appropriate off ice work outs will also be available to those interested, through Advantage Sports and Conditioning at the Cube, (cost not included in ice fees).

In Ann Arbor, our house teams offer a competitive environment in which teams are able to play 18-22 games per fall season, along with scrimmages and tournaments. Parents are asked to make a commitment to the team practices and game schedules to the best of their ability. House teams are more competetive and teaching hockey skills work best when all players can commit to their team season schedule. 

AAAHA recommends new skaters try our Fall Learn To Play programs before jumping on to a house team, especially at the Bantam level where checking is introduced and could be a safety issue.

Most house teams will choose to participate in at least one tournament per fall season.

Spring season is a shortened, 6 week season, with a more relaxed schedule and game play. There is no Little Caesars League offered for Spring. Spring is less of a commitment and dual rostering is permitted during Spring.

House hockey in Ann Arbor is a commitment! We want to thank the parents for making the commitment to get your children to practices and games, the coaches, and team managers for volunteering their time to teach the kids the great game of ice hockey! 


Coaching Applications

We want to thank all of our coaches! All of AAAHA's coaches are volunteers and volunteer every minute they spend with our kids! Coaches also volunteer their time off ice as well, planning practices, strategies for games, off ice training, etc. 

If you have interest in coaching any of the house teams, please contact Peggy Costello,  peggy.costello@aaaha.org


AAAHA Goalie Clinics

Check the AAAHA Calendar for our monthly goalie clinics during the fall season. All members of AAAHA are welcome to come out for goalie instruction.

Let your head coach know you would like to attend.
