The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association congratulates the Garden City Hockey Association as its recipient of the 2020 John Stansik Award, recognizing the Association of the Year in the State of Michigan.

The GCHA has committed to a standard of excellence in its program offerings to membership. Its philosophy of fostering growth and development, with a genuine spirit of fun, is driven by the GCHA’s highly-trained coaches. As a result of an exceptional Learn to Skate and Learn to Play program, the Association has seen substantial growth over many years, particularly in its 8U division.

The Garden City Hockey Association actively embraces key growth initiatives, including USA Hockey’s Try Hockey for Free program, Welcome Back Week, Hockey Across America, and the IIHF World Girls' Ice Hockey Weekend. Furthermore, they regularly engage the community through activation at local events, promoting the game of hockey as well as community service.

In addition, the GCHA firmly believes that no child should be turned away from the game due to cost. Its commitment to fundraising efforts for families, in an effort to off-set seasonal costs, leaves a lasting impression for membership.

The John Stansik Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the growth of the hockey community in Michigan.

MAHA Meeting Update.

Based on the rink openings in zone 6 and 8, MAHA is anticipating that rinks in our area will be open at the same capacity level.  With this being said we will not have any restrictions on the number of skaters on the ice for teams.

Since we do not officially start until after Labor Day, we still do not have the final guidance from the city.  

Stay safe and enjoy your summer.
