What equipment will I need?
You will need full hockey equipment for your first game. Equipment includes helmet (half-shield is acceptable, but full cage/mask is recommended), breezers, elbow pads, gloves, breezers, shin pads, skates, stick, hockey socks. Shoulder pads are optional, but recommended. Eventually matching-color helmets and breezers will be required for the winter league. We strongly recommend you purchase black helmet and breezers.
Is fighting/rough play allowed in AHA?
AHA is a non-checking league. Fighting is strictly prohibited. AHA promotes a safe environment for adults to play hockey and does not condone rough play. Players that fight or get excessive penalty minutes are suspended. Refer to the AHA Addendum for more information.
