Maulers Travel Teams are intended for skilled hockey players (boys and girls) from the SQUIRT level through the MIDGET level. Tryouts will begin in early September and the season normally runs through the end of February. The teams will average 3 – 5 hours of ice per week including games, practices and Beyond the Edge sessions.
For the 2014-2015 season, the age levels are as follows:
SQUIRT: Born in 2004-2005
PEE WEE: Born in 2002-2003
BANTAM: Born in 2000-2001
MIDGET: Born in 1996-1999
We are excited to continue to build upon the strong season we had last year and exceptionally strong registration numbers we had for our spring hockey season that just ended. Based on our current projections for the upcoming season we plan to field the following travel hockey teams:
USA Hockey Registration Information
AHAI requires the purchase of your player’s 2014-2015 Season USA Hockey Insurance directly from USA Hockey. All players must have a valid USA Hockey Insurance number in order to take the ice for tryouts. To register go to http://www.usahockeyregistration.com/
Fees and Payment Schedule
EARLY PAYMENT DISCOUNT
As in the past, we will offer a $200.00 discount per player for those who’ve registered and remitted a $300.00 deposit by our early registration deadline of July 15, 2014 AND are paid in full by their child’s first practice (the second week of September)
If you choose not to take advantage of the early payment discount, all skaters must be registered and have remitted the $300.00 deposit prior to taking the ice for tryouts.
The fees for each level for the 2014-2015 Season are listed below. Please note that these fees are exclusive of additional fees that may be incurred by each travel team, such as slush funds, tournament fees and travel costs and expenses.
Travel Team tryouts will be conducted as described in the Maulers Hockey Tryout Manual. We will notify any player that does not make a team ASAP and no more than 24 hours after the last tryout for that age level. After all notifications are made, the teams and first practice time will be posted on the Maulers' website.

As you all know, the Maulers Hockey Association takes very seriously its mission to develop not only young hockey players but also exemplary citizens using sports as a vehicle to do so. To that end, the Maulers Board of Directors believes it is appropriate to recognize those players who went above and beyond in the classroom during the past season.

Congratulations to the following players that received straight As in all academic subjects over each of the first three quarters of the 2013-2014 school year.
Maulers families volunteered at Feed My Starving Children and packed 101,600 meals for food insecure/malnourished children in Haiti - a great experience for the kids and parents alike. Another reminder that the blown offsides call isn't really that big a deal in the scheme of things!!
Thanks to Coach John for putting it together and to all who volunteered their time - another proud day to be a Mauler.
USA Hockey unveiled a new Heads Up, Don’t Duck instructional video featuring Olympians Jenny Potter and Ryan Suter.
The Heads Up, Don’t Duck safety initiative dates back to 1996 and is aimed at reducing spinal cord and other debilitating injuries.
“Dr. Ashare, the current chair of our safety and protective committee, helped launch this important program nearly two decades ago,” said Dr. Michael Stuart, chief medical officer of USA Hockey. “The basic premise of the program has not changed, however, we created this updated video piece to ensure that every player and coach understands the importance of keeping your head up.”
“We’ve been out in front on safety issues over the course of our history,” said Dave Ogrean, executive director of USA Hockey. “Heads Up, Don’t Duck has long been one of our signature safety programs and is part of our broad SafeSport program that addresses both on and off-ice safety of our participants.”
AHAI strongly encourages all parents and coaches at all levels of hockey to have their players watch this HEADS UP – DON’T DUCK VIDEO at least twice every season to help reduce the risk of a catastrophic injury.
Congratulations to the 2011-2012 Mite AA Bronze team for winning the Mite B Division Championship at the Big Chill Tournament in Ann Arbor over the MLK Weekend. They beat the Troy Sabres in a exciting shoot out.
