Welcome to the Hutchinson Hockey Association

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.

Season Updates

Phase 5 updated 1/12/21. See more on the COVID-19 page.

For the latest information, please visit News/Events on the website.

LiveBarn Streaming Now Available at Burich Arena

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.

Swine Barn - Now Open at the Fairgrounds

The Swine Barn is now open as a third sheet of ice offered through HHA  for some extra hockey time with friends! Please note that we are learning as we go and making changes on the fly.  You can find the latest schedule and rules below. If you have any questions, please contact Marc Docken or HHA board member.

**This space is privately rented by the Hutchinson Hockey Association. Only registered and rostered players and coaches are allowed on the ice. A minimum of one SafeSport approved parent/guardian must be presenting during any ice time.**

Thank you for following the rules and have fun at the Swine Barn!

Mask Update

1/5/21: Minnesota Hockey has secured approval from MDH for the use of the Bauer Splashguard in addition to the CCM Game On mask. Please see the attached update on HECC masks for details. 

Also, MN Hockey has developed an FAQ sheet on the mask mandate with answers to many of the most common questions to date. We hope this helps navigate this challenging topic and appreciate your patience.

Return to Play on January 4, 2021

The Executive Order by Governor Tim Walz instituting a pause on MN youth sports has been extended.  Therefore, HHA practices will resume starting Monday, January 4, 2021.  Please note the updated MN Hockey rules regarding COVID listed below to follow at that time.

2020-2021 Hutchinson Hockey Registration

Registration is still open for Mites. Please use this link to register your players.  

Electronic Background Screening

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.
