It is the mission of the AAAHA Board of Directors to grow the game of girls youth hockey! A grass roots effort is under way to develop players in the girls program that will have a passion to play hockey not only as young girls, but well into adulthood too. In order to accomplish this mission, it is important that the girls in our association have the programs available from the early fundamental skating years, into high school and beyond. You will see many new and exciting changes, such as the addition of our Girls Learn to Play program. It is our hope and desire to see your daughter play at every level of girls hockey within the association.
