The Amherst Hockey Association hosts a thriving Girls’ Division that recruits, retains, and builds solid skills for girl players with on- and off-ice training, social events, scrimmaging, co-ed and girls’ teams, and more. 

For the 2020/2021 season, we are hoping to offer a full-time 14U girls’ team, as well as a full-time 12U girls' team, who will be part of the Connecticut Girls Hockey League (CGHL). Evaluations are scheduled for March 2020 (see the AHA home page for details), and girls who are in the 2006-2009 birth years are encouraged to attend. For details on this team, email our Girls’ Division coordinator and CGHL representative Erin Flanagan at .

Depending on numbers, we may be offering a part-time girls’ team. This team, for girls who are in the 2008-2011 birth years will play 10-15 games in the CGHL. Both newer and more experienced hockey players are welcome. Girls who play with other organizations may also join this part-time team to get the added benefits, camaraderie, and confidence boost of playing with all girls. As this is a secondary team, we recognize that their full-time co-ed or girls’ teams have priority.

We will likely also offer our Girls' House Team. The house team has 10-20 girls, many of whom were brand-new to hockey. Historically, 2-5 of our house team players move on to travel teams each year.  

The Amherst Hockey Association is delighted to be one of the leaders in promoting girls’ hockey in Western Massachusetts. Visit the registration page for pricing and to register. If you have questions about the girls’ division, please contact our Girls Division Director, Erin Flanagan at  .
