SHAHA is happy to announce that we will be fielding Independent Midget teams at U15 and U16 for the 2017-18 season.  The decision was made to provide players with an increased level of competition while at the same time providing scheduling flexibility for the players and families involved.

These teams will not be playing in the PAHL, and will instead participate in several local and travel tournaments, as well as scheduled games with other AAA/AA organizations around the region.


We will be hosting an Open Skate for both teams on April 20th.

Only players that can compete on a AA level should attend, and there is no cost for this session.  Evaluations for the teams will not occur at these sessions, but players will be closely monitored by the respective coaching staffs.

Players already registered for the standard tryout dates are strongly encouraged to attend the Open Skate.


Tryouts will occur at the following dates / times:

Tryout Registration:

  • All participants will need to register online through the SHAHA website at the following link.
  • Registration will open on Friday, February 24th, and we are asking that all returning SHAHA players register by March 31st so we can plan accordingly
  • Of the tryout fee, $200 will be retained as a commitment fee that will be put towards your season fees

Team Information:

  • Mite – We will accept a maximum of 60 players among 6 team units.  All returning players registered will be guaranteed a roster spot next season.
  • Squirt – We will host 5 teams at this level, and all returning players registered will be guaranteed a roster spot next season.
  • PeeWee – We will host 5 teams at this level, and all returning players registered will be guaranteed a spot next season.
  • Bantam – We will host 6 teams at this level, and due to the amount of returning skaters to this level, we at this time cannot guarantee a roster spot for all returning SHAHA players.  Non-SHAHA players will be permitted to only tryout for potential AA level teams, and not the remaining teams being constructed.
  • Midget – We intend on fielding an A level team at both U16 and U18, as well as independent AA teams at U18, U16 and U15.  A level teams will continue to be considered game only once the PAHL season begins.  Placement of players to these teams will be at the directive of the head coach of each team, and returning SHAHA players will not be guaranteed a roster spot.
  • Girls – We anticipate offering a team at all four levels (U12, U14, U16 and U19), however the fielding and placement of these teams will depend on the division offering by the PAHL.

Ice Time and Development:

  • SHAHA will continue to offer power skating, skills sessions, and goalie instruction to the Squirt, PeeWee, and Bantam teams. 
    • Squirt, PeeWee, Bantam, and Girls U16 and U19 - two weeknight practices per week while Girls U14 - one weeknight practice per week
    • Girls U12 - weekend practices only, upon coach's request
    • Midget - practices TBD, with some weeknight practices through September followed by approximately one weekend practice per month beginning in October
    • Supplemental practices will be available upon coach's request for weekend ice not used for games. All teams will have weekend practices assigned in addition to their regular weeknight practices in the beginning of the season prior to the start of PAHL placement games.

Season Fees:

  • Ice costs continue to rise annually. Season fees for most teams have been raised $50, consistent with the 3% increase in the hourly cost of ice. Girls team and independent Midget team costs have been adjusted to capture our costs of putting these teams on the ice.
  • Season fees once again will need to be paid online.  This season we are now offering options to pay the season fees in full, in a 5 installment plan or in an 8 installment plan.

Our goal is to keep you as informed as possible as changes occur, and we ask that you bookmark the important dates for registration and tryouts highlighted above.

If you can’t find an answer to a question you may have, please send questions/comments to and we will get you an answer as soon as possible.

Thank you for your decision in being a member of SHAHA this past season and we look forward to the future with you.
