Based in Amherst, Massachusetts, the Amherst Hockey Association provides hockey programs for all levels of youth skill and competition for ages 4 to 17 years.

The AHA is a non-profit organization that relies on parent and community volunteers for coaching and managing our programs and appreciates any donations to make hockey affordable for all.

The AHA is a member organization of Massachusetts Hockey District 6 and USA Hockey. AHA co-ed travel teams compete in the Greater Springfield Junior Hockey League (GSL); our girls' teams play in the Connecticut Girls Hockey League (CGHL) and are a New England Girls' Hockey League (NEGHL) scheduling partner.
