Help provide MAHA with information on the teams that intend to participate in the split season in Fall 2022. A complete list of those teams participating will be shared with those teams that register so they can more easily contact other split-season teams for games. We will also communicate other information about split-season opportunities as well as playoff information.
Fill out the form below now to let us know your participating this season!
Teams must declare intent to enter early-season playoffs by September 1, 2022. A $900 deposit will also be required as part of the application process. Deposit will be applied to final fee. Make sure you review eligibility requirements above prior to registering.
The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association implemented the split season as a pilot program in the 2014 – 2015 season to help players whose goal in to play high school hockey in the winter. The program provided a split season option for Midget A & AA divisions. Under this new program teams were now be able to compete in a new, earlier season starting in August, a late season starting in late-November, or in both.
Having an early season allows high school age players, not playing other fall sports, to compete at a high level in preparation for the MHSAA season. Those teams playing in the early season will have a playoff at the end of that season to qualify teams for the State Finals, which will be played immediately after the MHSAA season is done. The winner of the finals will represent Michigan at the USA Hockey National Championship.
