Welcome to the 2014-15 Andover Hockey season. While the transition from summer can bring mixed emotions, when your child's skate blades touch the ice all will quickly recall their love of hockey, and the excitement for our sport will be new once again.
We remain the largest hockey town in Massachusetts (and almost certainly New England). We believe this is a very positive reflection of Andover Hockey Association, and we are certainly very proud of that claim. Here are some quick facts regarding this coming season:
• 600+ players (and counting—Initiation registration is still active)
• 500+ families
• 42 teams
• 125+ coaches
• ~40 team managers
• 1,600+ unique AHA events at Phillips Andover ice rinks
• 100% volunteer

The Andover Hockey Association, Mite teams are sponsoring the 32nd Annual Scott Heseltine Tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend at Phillips Academy.
Over the years, the Scott Heseltine Mite Tournament has become an Andover Hockey Association tradition and a highlight of the season for our Mite program. The tournament was started in 1982 in memory of Scott Heseltine, an Andover student-athlete who had a passion for hockey.
The core objective of this tournament is to promote community and the sportsmanship among our youth. Therefore, as a community, we are asking you to participate in this event by sponsorship, either through advertisements, raffle items or well wishes to your favorite team or players in the Tournament Program Guide.
The tournament is scheduled for November 28, 29 and 30th with the first puck dropped at 8:00 am on Friday, November 28th.
We look forward to your support both through sponsorship and by coming out to cheer on all the teams. Please clink the link below for more details on how you can help be a sponsor:
