All youth hockey programs are governed by USA Hockey and Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association (WAHA). In all 95 skaters participated in the youth hockey program with an additional 16 skaters at the high school level (which all came through the youth hockey program) during the 2006/2007 season.
MAYHA is able to provide skating and league programs only with the help and support of the families and local community. All coaches are trained (certified by USA Hockey) volunteers. During the hockey season all operational aspects are completed by parent volunteers. All hockey programs activities are overseen by a volunteer board of directors.
Fees / funds raised and collected are needed for operational costs. Each family pays a registration fee ($50.00 - $150.00 based on age level) per skater and participates in fund raisers and volunteer hours (10-20 hours based on age level of participant).
The youth hockey season begins the last week of October and finishes around the first of March. Some teams that participate in the WAHA State Tournament may extend into the first few weekends in March. Practices are held during week nights, usually 2 or 3 per week, lasting approx. one hour. The Introductory Program is held on Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. All youth games are held on weekends with a mix of 50% home and 50% away.
