The mission of MLAHA is to give each child in our program the opportunity to develop and grow as a hockey player, as an individual, and as a member of a team. We hope to accomplish this through educated volunteers, creating a fun atmosphere for practices and games, and developing a community of responsible supportive adults to mentor our players.
Thank you for your interest in the Moose Lake Area Hockey Association.
If your child is interested in playing hockey this season or you have questions, please contact any coaches or members of the Board. Information is available on the "Contact Us" or "Board" tab on the upper right.
The Board meets each month. Please check calendar for dates, times, and location.
Meetings are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend.
