Friday, June 18 from 11:30am-1pm: HHA will be serving pizza lunch from Dominos at the Teddy Bear Band concert (the band begins playing at noon) at Library Square (rain location is the Rec Center). Bring your teddy bear, your appetite, and tell your friends about this fundraiser!!
Sunday, June 20 at 11:45am: Your HHA player is invited to inline skate through the Grand Day Parade to celebrate Hutch Hockey and hand out candy. Please wear HHA apparel if you have it! HHA is #37 this year and your skater can be dropped off in the parking lot of the Southwest Initiative Foundation at 11:45am (depending on when they block off roads, you may have to park on a side street and walk your child down to the parking lot). Every HHA skater is welcome, however Mite girls and boys must have an adult with them through the parade. Please let us know if you plan to have your skater participate in the parade, but also please have all skaters check in with Melissa Campbell or Erin Knudtson the day of, so we are certain that we have parent contact information for each skater. Skaters should be picked up at the Bobbing Bobber Brewery as soon as they finish the route. Please make sure your skater has a plan for immediate pick up as well as plenty of water.
If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Given the spectator limitation due to COVID-19, we have been working on other ways for family and friends to watch HHA games. We decided on a service called LiveBarn which is now installed in both the East and West arenas to stream all youth hockey games, including JV/Varsity. Have an away game? Check out the other venues that also have LiveBarn - all included. The service is available on a subscription basis and allows you to watch both live and on-demand games at any time from any device.
For more information or to subscribe, visit LiveBarn. Enter code ee31-826h for 10% off.
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.
Congratulations to our Girls 12UA team for placing 2nd in District Playoffs and making it to Regions!
