Northwestern Hockey Camp Canada is coming to The MAC this summer!!!!

The MAC - Home of your NMAHA Scorpions!

The sale of our home ice rink is officially complete. Now known as "The MAC" -- The McDermott Athletic Center. We are very excited about new opportunities and improvements to come. The first being no more $1 to watch games!! 

Be assured we will have a full season of hockey this season and we look forward to many great seasons to come!A fantastic new opportunity for players 13 and under being offered by the McDermott Sports staff is drop-in skating beginning on Saturdays from 11-12. Skating coaches will be at The MAC for an hour of skating skills at a $10 drop-in fee. This is open to any players 13 or under. Full gear is best, but at a minimum players should have helmet, skates and gloves. If you have questions, you can email nmahachiefofcoaches@gmail.com This new skating program will take a two week break October 22 and 29, the resume again.

Volunteer Screening

Our kids can't play hockey without our volunteers!!

To help ensure the safety of all of our players, training and background screening is required by USA Hockey's SafeSport Program for all adults (18 and older) who volunteer with our associations and LOE affiliates.
Per the USA Hockey SafeSport Program Handbook any volunteer with routine contact or responsibility for our youth athletes are REQUIRED to be screened, including:
1.  Members of the Affiliate Board of Directors
2.  Local program administrators [association board members and volunteers]
3.  Coaches 
4.  Team Managers
5.  Officials
6.  Locker room monitors
7.  Team drivers
8.  Travel chaperones
9.  Anyone with routine access to youth participants.
This is mandatory, but the process is quite simple:
