Skills and Speed Clinic with Coach Mark Ciaccio of the New York Rangers! (8/23-25/2022)

Posted 8/3/22 | Updated: 8/11/22 @ 3pm MDT

The New Mexico Raptors Hockey Team and RJ Sports LLC present:
Marc Ciaccio of the New York Rangers for a 3-day Skills and Speed Clinic!

This clinic is intended for returning players ages 6-18 and will be just $65 (+processing) for three evening sessions with Coach Ciaccio!

(Please - no "new to hockey skaters" for this one - Try Hockey for Free (THFF) is coming before this on 8/20!  See details on the home and THFF pages!)

The clinic will be divided into two groups (35 skaters MAX each):

  • GROUP 1: Ages 6-12 (Peewee and below) - 10 spots left!
  • GROUP 2: Ages 13-18 (Bantam and above) - 20 spots left!

(Age is determined using the USA Hockey method - actual age on December 31st of this year)

The dates and times ON the ice are as follows:

Date: Group 1: Group2:
Tuesday, 8/23 5:45-6:30pm 6:30-7:15pm
Wednesday, 8/24 6:45-7:45pm 7:45-8:45pm
Thursday, 8/25 5:45-6:30pm 6:30-7:15pm

We realize these are school nights, so the younger group (#1) will go first & the older group will go after. We tried to ensure this clinic doesn't go too late into the evening so as many players can participate as possible based on available ice.

To complete registration please [CLICK HERE]

Please use a computer (not phone) for this registration and you will need to sign into your personal SportsEngine account to complete the registration.

Please register by 8/15/22.  Once each group reaches 35 skaters, no further registrations will be accepted! 

We will be opening this to other associations on 8/11.

Equipment Exchange/Donation - SET for October 1st at the MAC!

Posted: 7/25/22 | Updated: 8/11/22

We are planning to host our pre-season Equipment Exchange on Saturday, October 1st from 2-4pm at The MAC!

Yes - this is the weekend before practices start on October 3rd.

Has your player outgrown their old equipment?  Bring it in and we should be able to exchange for the right size.

If your player has gear that WON'T ALLOW them to currently play in stick & pucks or potential upcoming clinics/tryouts (damaged, wrong size, etc.) and you need something sooner, email us at nmahahockey@gmail.com to make arrangements before the Exchange.

Got hockey gear not being used & taking up space?  Bring it down!

Please email any questions to Margaret McNatt (NMAHA President) at nmahapresident@gmail.com.

MAC Ice Situation... Up & Running!

Created: 6/8/22 | Updated: 7/25/22

The ice opened for the 3rd Annual MAC Cup over the weekend of July 8th, 9th, and 10th - however, some of the lines were damaged and this is being addressed and the ice built up even more this week.

Unfortunately, the MAC Ice Calendar on the website is having issues, but there are the following on the weekends so far (CALL the MAC to confirm!):
Public Skates:  SAT/SUN 3pm-5pm ($11?)
Stick & Pucks: SAT/SUN 1pm-2:30pm ($13)

I will try to update here as I check the wall calendar at the MAC!

Don't forget you can get a monthly Ice Membership that gives you access to all Public Skates and Stick & Pucks.

Congratulations to our returning and new Board Members!
