MAHA is excited to get back on the ice Saturday, January 2, 2021!

We will be loading the schedule into the website

with highlights below of a few things that are different from how we started the season:

- Per current State guidelines, our activities will be limited to practices only in the short term.  We will schedule games once this is permitted by the state.  

- Check-in/screening will occur outside and no parents (other than approved volunteers) will be allowed in the rink.  Please have your player arrive dressed and be prepared to leave them off at the rink entrance after screening (coaches/coordinators will be available to help all the kids tie skates and fit any remaining equipment inside the building).

- We will be limiting participants on the ice to 25 (including players and coaches), again per State guidelines.  Once this restriction is lifted, we will do our best to make more efficient use of the ice that we have. 

As we communicated earlier, we are committed to a safe and responsible operation given the potential risk and uncertainty around COVID.  

MAHA - COVID19 / Return to Play Guidelines

In an effort to keep all participants safe and healthy during the occurrence of COVID-19, Middlebury Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) and its players, coaches, volunteers, parents, and spectators will follow the procedures and expectations outlined in this document. These guidelines were developed in accordance with the State of Vermont, Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association, Friends of Middlebury Hockey, and the Middlebury Sports Center. MAHA reserves the right to change these guidelines as needed and will do so as updated guidance is available from any of the aforementioned organizations.
Please continue to check this site from time-to-time for the latest information.
