MHA begins their season right after Labor Day and continues into mid to late March. We practice 2-3 times per week (mostly 3 times) for approximately 80 hours of practice time every year. Most of our practices are at USM's Olympic sized rink. Our teams play our games in the Valley Hockey League based out of Massachusetts. We play a 35 game schedule where we play two games on a Saturday about 3 times per month. Games are usually about an hour apart. Games are usually in Haverhill, Lawrence or Methuen, MA.
What makes MHA different than other organizations??? We develop our players instead of always worrying about the W's and L's. Yes, we like to win during the regular season. We just don't limit our players ice time to get the W. If your child puts in the effort in practice and games, he/she WILL get better. We offer the most skilled skills instructors around. Graeme Townshend, Seth Goodson and many other guest instructors from Townshend Hockey will help prepare your child to be a better hockey player. More information about our Townshend Hockey instructors can be found at www.townshendhockey.com

MHA will continue playing in the the Valley Hockey League. This is one of the largest leagues in the United States and has produced many top junior, college and pro players over the years. The league has been a gateway for many players to be noticed by many of the top programs in the northeast. By having a large number of teams, the league is able to have a parity system that allows teams to be placed in a division that best fits them.
MHA is owned and operated by Graeme Townshend, who has played and coached at every level, including the NHL.
Graeme and his staff’s mission is to not only develop successful hockey players on the ice (proven results) but successful young adults with character off the ice as well.
