AMHA Hockey Development for the 2019 - 2020 Season
The AMHA hopes all families have had an enjoyable and safe summer. With most summer sports winding down, the hockey season is fast approaching. Rep Tryouts will commence the week after the Labour Day long weekend.

Planning for the upcoming season has been underway for some time. The AMHA is excited once again to offer affordable hockey development opportunities throughout the 2019 - 2020 season. 


TAG Hockey Development
Once again, Trevor Gallant has been invited back to offer a combination of power skating and skill based training. This opportunity is open to Minor Novice to Peewee/Bantam level players. There are three times relevant to the aforementioned development levels. TAG development skates will commence Sunday September 22, 2019 and continue for 8 skates total. For more information, please check out the clinics tab on the home page (

Future Pro Goalie Clinics
Steve McKichan and Futurepro goalie clinics will again be offered to our goalies for the upcoming season. With the added pressure of being goaltender, and the cost associated with this position, the AMHA is excited to offer 5 sessions once again with Steve and his team. These clinics will commence Saturday September 21, 2019 and continue through to October 26, 2019. Be sure to put the correct dates in your calendar. For more information, please check out the clinics tab on the home page (

The cost per player for each of the above clinics respectively is $40.00. 
Reserve your child's spot by emailing Mike Reynaert at [email protected].

Hockey Canada Skills Clinic - Friday September 27, 2019
For the first time, the AMHA secured a Hockey Canada Skills Clinic for the PA Day on September 27, 2019. This clinic is lead by staff from the OMHA, and assisted by Coaches and Volunteers from the AMHA. Participants will receive both on-ice skill training as well as off-ice educational sessions. The day will commence at 9:00 am and finish at 3:00 pm. All participants will also receive a jersey for the event. The cost for this day per participant is $75.00. For more information, or to sign up please refer to the clinics tab on the home page (

For further questions regarding the Hockey Canada Skills Clinic, please contact Stephen Douglas at [email protected].

It is our hope that we can offer an abundance of opportunities for our players to develop their skills in the most affordable way. 

We would also invite families to provide feedback on our development opportunities in order to help us make decisions on these sessions in future years. Feel free to voice your comments to a board member when you see one.

See you all soon!

Tim Hortons
The Timbits Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
