April 18: Mites Equipment Return and Mites Boys Fun Day

We have scheduled the Mites equipment return for Sunday, April 18th from 2-4pm in the East Arena.  Please return all borrowed HHA equipment on this day.  If any of your equipment is damaged, please let a volunteer know so it doesn't end up in our inventory for next year.  If you plan to attend the Hutch summer camp, we will redistribute equipment at that time.

Also, on April 18th from 3-5pm, the boys Mites will have an end of year fun day playing soccer and other games on the turf, followed by pizza and snacks. The girls already had a successful fun day with bowling and pizza.  Let's have a great turnout for the boys too!

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.


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.
