Middlebury’s Try Hockey for Free day was a wonderful experience for the players and coaches who came out to Memorial Sports Center on March 3rd, 2018. The event attracted 36 registered children from the Addison County area between the ages of 4 and 8. Coaches from the Middlebury Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) and volunteer coaches led the kids through basic hockey drills focused on skating, puck handling, and safe play on the ice.
Try Hockey for Free is a great way to give families who are considering hockey the chance to give the sport a try, and we hope that we’ll see many of these awesome kids again next season in MAHA’s Learn to Play and Mite programs.

Each year Kraft sponsors a Hockeyville contest – the winning prize is $150,000 in rink upgrades and the opportunity host a pre-season NHL game. The stories, notes and pictures you post to our community page will earn Middlebury rally points, which will help us get into the second round of the Hockeyville judging. With a 40 year history as an all volunteer organization, Middlebury has a great story, and the Hockeyville award would let us finish the Memorial Sports Center and add public bathrooms, a heated viewing area, and elevator.
Please go to the page below and add your story or note about what our hockey community means to you! Deadline March 10th.
