    Thank you for a GREAT Season!

    We would like to thank all of our NMAHA families, players, team managers, coaches and Board members for a wonderful 2022-2023 Season!

    We saw growth & development at all levels and as an organization overall this season.  There's still room to grow and build this summer before the 2023-24 Season begins in October!

    We will have our Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, April 8th - with an hour of skating for the kids during voting (2-3pm) and then the Coaches vs. Varsity game at 3:15pm!  This will elect new board members to start preparing for the next season at the May Board Meeting.

    Initial tentative Summer plans*:

    • Host another Try Hockey For Free (THFF) on July 15th (after participating in the 4th of July Parade in Rio Rancho!)
    • Host the Mark Ciaccio Clinic for RETURNING players again, likely in August - watch for updates here!

    * These activities are pending approval of the NEW board.

    Annual Membership Meeting & Elections - 4/8/23! (2-4:15pm)

    The Annual Membership Meeting will be held on April 8th, 2023 from 2-4pm in the Snack Bar area at the MAC - with:

    • Ice for the kids (skating only) from 2-3pm
    • Coaches vs. Varsity Game from 3:15-4:15pm!

    We will have ballots for voting (one vote per registered player this season).

    Please consider running for a Board position for next season. We have 6 openings to fill and the Board keeps NMAHA moving forward for youth hockey in Rio Rancho!
