Youth Hockey Awards

Each year, MAYHA recognizes parents who have invested a significant amount of time in our youth hockey program with two awards: Volunteer of the Year and Lifetime Achievement. The people recognized through these awards have invested a significant amount of time into the program and exemplify our core values of respect, integrity, sportsmanship and teamwork.
