Important Updates

Neck Guard Requirement

Effective August 1, 2024, all youth players must wear neck laceration protection during practices and games. Each player/family is responsible for purchasing a neck guard, as neck guards will not be provided with rental equipment.

Volunteer Obligation

The 2024-2025 season is the final season for the volunteer obligation fee structure. MAYHA will develop a new credit system that allows key volunteer positions to receive credit towards for their player’s registration fees. Watch for information later this year.
