Thank you State Playdown volunteers!

Hello Fellow Middlebury Hockey Families!

Thank you to all the families who volunteered and showed up to cheer on the Tigers at the  State play-down tournaments these past two weekends.  We appreciate your support.

Enjoy the last couple weeks of the hockey season!

Neck Guard Policy

On behalf of the MAHA board, effective immediately all MAHA players are required to wear a neck guard during all practices and games. Coaches will ask players to go back to the locker room and get their neck guard if they show up on the ice with out it. Neck guards are a simple way to prevent a potentially life-threatening injury. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to MAHA's Player Safety Coordinator, Krysta Laroche, vsaha@middhockey.com,  or any other board member.

If you are unsure what a neck guard is or where to buy them, we have listed a few options below. Most hockey retailers have them, as well as Play It Again Sports (Blue Mall in South Burlington) and Kevin Smith Sports (Williston Road in South Burlington).

Simple neck guard: Amazon.com : Shock Doctor Ultra 2.0 Neck Guard Black Junior : Sports & Outdoors

If you are curious why this is now becoming a requirement, attached is the link to a recent NPR article about the recent death of a former Pittsburgh Penguins player died after being cut in the neck by a skate. Demand for neck guards soars after hockey player's death : NPR

Happy, safe skating!
