The number of adult players registered with USA Hockey in Michigan has dropped significantly this season. Several leagues have purchased supplemental insurance from a private source, and at least one league has joined another organization. The lack of teams has forced the decision to not host the State Playoff tournaments this season. Instead, we are concentrating on hosting a 4-on-4 Adult Jamboree. Because a good number of adult players are also coaches and parents of youth hockey players, the tournament must be held after the youth State playoffs and Nationals are completed. At this time, the Jamboree is scheduled to be held the weekend of May 14-16, 2021. As soon as more information is available, we will be contacting all Adult leagues to invite them to participate. All participants must be registered with USA Hockey. Any Adult who registers with USA Hockey after April 1, 2021 will be insured by USA Hockey for the remainder of the 2020-2021 season, as well as the entire 2021-2022 season. We are hoping that this will be an incentive for leagues and players to return to both USA Hockey and MAHA.
WHAT IS THE ADULT FIRST GOAL PROGRAM?
The Adult First Goal Program was established to provide the adult hockey fan or parent to experience the thrill of playing the game that they so passionately follow. First Goal is a grant-based FREE* program that provides USA Hockey registered adult hockey leagues a national platform of resources to introduce new adults to the sport. Being a good partner in the business is about join efforts between USA Hockey and registered adult leagues to grow the game.
