The Hutchinson Hockey Association strives to create an environment of participation, which encourages creativity, discipline, leadership, sportsmanship and competition, thus building character in all youth who choose to participate. Our youth are our greatest asset.
HHA has recently held joint meetings with the City of Hutchinson, Boys and Girls High School coaches and Hutchinson Figure Skating Association. Unfortunately, after much discussion the difficult decision was made to not have summer ice in Hutchinson this year. There were many factors that went into this decision including following MN Hockey and the Governors guidelines for social distancing. Our main priority is keeping skaters (both hockey and figure skating) safe. In addition, we must be fiscally responsible for the association and our families.
We are working on a plan to offer a dry-land camp using the same dates July 6-24th. The dry-land camp would focus on stick handling, shooting and strength training. We want to provide something hockey orientated to give the kids something to do this summer, but it will look much different than in years past due to Covid-19. We are still in the planning phase of what this will look like given the guidelines but wanted to get information out to the families for planning reasons. It's looking like the camp would be Monday-Thursday but do not have those plans solidified yet. We hope to share final details in the coming weeks.
Please stay safe and healthy.
The document below describes the steps that must be taken to register electronically the background screening required by the association for its volunteers (excludes minor officials). This is the preferred method for doing this. Both parents will need their own NGIN account to each register electronically.
Because NGIN will only allow an email account to be used one time in its system, if you are set up as a secondary email, you will have to remove that secondary email from the account, register yourself with that email, and then link the accounts under the profiles to receive all the necessary emails for your players.
Please watch the video on concussions produced by Hutchinson Health. This video is especially good for the athletes themselves to watch.
