2019-2020 season registration is now open. Please see the 19-20 season rates below. In general, rates were raised by 3% this year. The main factor in our need to raise rates is the City of Ames increased their charge for ice time by 3%. Ice time is our largest expense by far and has a direct influence on what we charge skaters. As a board, we work very hard to keep fees as low as possible. Skater fees and fundraising/sponsorship are our only source of income, and we hope to increase our fundraising/sponsorship efforts to avoid future fee increases. We welcome any ideas for fundraisers and sponsors.
New this season is an early bird registration period, now until August 30, in which you will receive a $100 discount if you register by August 30. All registration on or after September 1 will not receive the $100 discount.
Additionally, if you have multiple skaters in AMHA Mite Level and above, you will receive a $100.00 discount.

AMHA will hold tryouts for each division (depending on numbers) the week of September 23 – 30. More details forthcoming.
Please register your skater(s) within the appropriate age group for which they are eligible to skate in this upcoming season. Those who are interested in asking for your child to be evaluated for a possible move-up this season should fill out the AMHA Player Move Up Request Form and submit to Fred Van Bergen. All player evaluations will take place during the tryout period, September 23 – 30th. If you have any questions related to the move up process, please contact Fred Van Bergen.
AMHA will continue to partner with the McFarland Sports Medicine Clinic this season for our concussion screening. All new skaters will need to be screened (10yrs old and above) while other skaters will be re-screened based on their year in school. The need to retest skaters is to create a rotation schedule since last year was the first-time using McFarland Sports Medicine Clinic. Our goal is to have “mass screenings” at the rink while still providing the opportunity for individual appointments at the rink. Team Coordinators will provide more detail when available.
Learn to Play session will begin on Tuesday, October 22nd. Registration for the fall LTP session will be made available in mid to later September. If you are interested in participating in the LTP program, please wait to register during that LTP registration period. If your skater participated in the Learn to Play program last season and is age-appropriate, you are strongly encouraged to register for the appropriate age level team. I would encourage you to speak with Fred Van Bergen to determine the best option for your skater.
The official start of the season will be Monday, September 30th.
