The Amherst Hockey Association (AHA) is a non-profit organization that relies on parent and community volunteers for coaching and managing our youth hockey programs.

AHA provides a supervised, recreational and competitive hockey program for youths from 4 to 17 years old who live in the Amherst, Massachusetts area. We are a member organization of Massachusetts Hockey District 6 and USA Hockey.   Our programs are conducted primarily at the Mullins Center practice rink on the campus of the University of Massachusetts and at Orr Rink at Amherst College, as well as at other local rinks.
