Official Statement on District Tournaments

AAHA Hockey Family,                

USA Hockey has canceled the 2020 National Championships due to the impact of the COVID-19 Virus. In light of this fact and related issues, the AAHA has canceled the balance of its District Tournaments, which were scheduled to be held this weekend in North Jersey. 

This decision was not made lightly. It was done in consultation with USA Hockey, our Host Rinks (Ice House – Hackensack, and Ice Vault, Wayne) as well as advice from other USA Hockey Affiliate leaders. Many other Affiliates have also canceled their District Tournaments. 

We are continuing to monitor new and developing requirements from Federal, State and local governmental agencies, should further action by the AAHA be required to address other events, such as tryouts and invitational tournaments. We will communicate any new directives on our website and social media platforms. 

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
