This program is highly recommended for all skaters to continue to develop proper skating skills through the Hockey 4 level. Additionally, it is becoming a requirement for the youngest of skaters to pass at least Basic 1 before entering the Learn to Play Hockey (Pre-Mite) program.

New this year, the AMHA has developed a Rec Hockey Program (RHP). You will be given the option to sign up for this as well now. The fee structure still needs to be determined by the board for this RHP.
Recreational Hockey Program
The AMHA Recreational Hockey Program (RHP) is designed to provide an opportunity for those who want to learn the game of hockey, further their individual development, not have the commitment that travel hockey requires and to have fun. It is the intent of AMHA to provide its members the opportunity to play recreational hockey for the levels of Tykes through Peewees, as Club resources allow. As players learn to enjoy the sport of hockey and improve their player skill level, it is hoped that players will aspire to join their respective travel hockey program.
Recreational Program Structure
Members that are not part of the Travel Hockey Program (THP) will be placed into the RHP. The structure of the RHP will be somewhat dependant on the number of players within the various divisions. The Coaches and Coordinators Committee (CCC) will determine the season's structure at the beginning of the season and will retain the right to make adjustments throughout the season to best accommodate the members and the Association. These activities may consist of, but do not guarantee, cross ice scrimmages, full ice scrimmages and the possibility of full ice scrimmages or house league games. Players should be willing to travel to and from nearby Iowa communities as opportunities for games become available. Travel Hockey players may be allowed or encouraged to participate in these weekend activities if that participation enhances the RHP and does not conflict with the THP. If the THP is in need of additional players and/or a RHP player makes significant improvements during the season, the coach of the division in need of a player may request the CCC to review such a move for approval. If approval is granted, the final decision to move to the THP will rest upon the RHP player.
The CCC will be responsible for ensuring that there is coaching availability for all weekend events that the RHP players are involved in. Coaches of the THP will assist in coaching the RHP players during the regularly scheduled weekly practices.
Travel Hockey Program
The AMHA Travel Hockey Program (THP) is designed for players who want to make a serious commitment to the game of hockey and to further their individual development. Travel hockey requires a significant amount of travel and financial commitment. It is the intent of AMHA to provide its members the opportunity to play competitive travel hockey, for the levels of Squirt through Bantams.
AMHA travel hockey teams will have the opportunity to play competitive hockey within and outside of the Midwest League, as determined by the Board, the coaches and parents of the respective teams.
The number of travel teams fielded at any one level will be determined by several factors including the number of players desiring to participate in travel hockey and the skill level of said players. Those desiring to participate in travel hockey will need to be evaluated to aid in the determination of the number of teams that may be formed. Further information on evaluations can be found in the evaluation policy.
The number of teams that AMHA will field at any one level will primarily be driven by the number of those desiring to participate in travel hockey. In addition to this will be the skill levels of those desiring to participate, based on evaluations and knowledge of the abilities of any specific players. In game situations, attempts will be made for equitable play time. This design may allow for additional players to be on the travel team that otherwise would not be. Travel teams will consist of players of comparable skills and the number of players on a team will follow the below structure:
- The minimum number of players on a team at all divisions will be ten (10) skaters and one (1) goalie.
