The association supervises the activities of thousands of amateur hockey teams, and tens of thousands of players, using a volunteer workforce of elected and appointed officials. MAHA administers amateur hockey in Michigan through seven established districts. Each District is responsible for the local teams and Associations in their area.
Registration is open for its 2016 National Hockey Coaches Symposium, set for Aug. 11-14 in St. Louis, Missouri, at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel.
