More Info about MHA

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 at at USM's Olympic sized rink.  We sometimes skate at the Colisee in Lewiston if USM's college teams play during our practice times.   Our teams play our games in the Valley League based out of Haverhill, 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 or so apart. Games are usually in Haverhill, Lawrence or Methuen, MA.  Please read more about the Valley League on this webpage.

Playoff Games Postponed Until Further Notice

COVID-19 Update!

All Valley playoff games have been postponed until further notice. We will be monitoring the situation closely over the course of the next week and will assess the playoff early next week.

MHA will continue playing in the Valley League

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.

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
