Districts 2023 Update

This season teams will have two options for districts.  The State/National qualifying traditional districts and a non-state qualifying district tournament to be played at the end of the season in March.  The traditional districts will follow the same schedules, bracketing and tournament rules as previous years.  The D4 Tournament is a Non-State Qualifying District Tournament designed for teams who are designated Howe 2 or below. The D4 Tournament is a Non-State Qualifying District Tournament and will be played similarly, but the bracketing and the number of rounds may differ based on the number of teams entering.  The cost for teams to enter either level of district play will be $130.00.  Registration is now open, please be sure to register for the correct tournament.  Once teams are registered they will not be able to switch the type of tournament.

MAHA Tryout Locator

February 23, 2021–

The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) announced the launch of a new ‘Tryout Locator,’ available to all MAHA - affiliated associations starting with the Spring 2022 tryout season.

Players and families can filter the information, by age group and season, to make it easy to locate potential teams.

Associations and/or teams can post their tryouts on the MAHA website by having a primary contact complete a simple form. The tool allows teams to enter up to four (4) dates, times and locations for their respective tryouts.

Changes and/or modifications can be made to the information as needed.

If you haven’t done so already, please encourage all of your travel teams to utilize the MAHA ‘Tryout Locator’ for posting their seasonal tryout dates. You can access the ‘Tryout Locator’ on the home page of the  MAHA website, or you can link directly at
