Adult Hockey Association has programs designed for everyone from the beginning hockey player to intermediate level players.
Beginner School gives women who have never played organized hockey a chance to learn to play hockey.
November - April and April - August.
Women's Winter League started in 2012-13 and continues for a second season in 2013-14. The skill level consists of C3/D1 players, which is roughly equivalent to WHAM's B3/C1 levels. For lower level players, see the Women's Beginner School below.
October - April
Women's Fall League is for players of all abilities and designed as an opportunity to play real games while shaking the rust of the skates leading up to the Winter League. We encourage players to register individually or in small groups. Teams are assembled by AHA with parity in mind and having individuals and small groups register allows greater flexibility to maintain parity.
Summer League is designed to be a little bit more relaxed than our Winter Program. During the Summer we encourage forming teams with a mix of players from other AHA Winter teams or with players new to the league. This mix promotes improved sportsmanship and allows players to test and sometimes improve their skills. A light-weight jersey is provided so that everyone on the team has the same jersey.
June - August
