AHA Travel Teams participate in the Greater Springfield Junior Amateur Hockey Association (GSL) with other teams across the Pioneer Valley.

The GSL season is typically comprised of 20+ regular season games with the possibility of playoffs.

Our teams are also encouraged to schedule independent games and tournaments to broaden the range of competition.

Coaches are encouraged to follow USA Hockey’s ADM model.   Small area games and small drill groups are used to promote maximum puck touches and activity.   We provide professional skating instruction and Goalie Clinics to our Travel Teams.

 AHA is comprised of teams from several divisions
