Registration is a two-step process:

1. All skaters are required to register online with USA Hockey for the upcoming season in order to skate with Amherst Hockey Association. You can register at This process takes about 5 minutes. Cost is $56.50 for anyone who will be 7 years old by December 31 (free for kids 6 and under).

2. All AHA skaters are required to register online on our website, you can access the registration through the link for each program below, or navigate the Registration tab at the top. You will need to provide the USA hockey number obtained from the first step (Please allow a few minutes for our system to validate your number before you can complete the process). 


Important Note: If you have been in our Learn To Skate or Learn To Play program and have been considering our travel program, we suggest you talk with our coaches/volunteers about the travel program. It is much easier for you to register for and begin with the travel program and move back to the in-house programs than it is for you to move from the in-house programs to travel later in the year (since 8U team placements  are conducted in September).
