Important AE Information
Huntsville Minor Hockey would like to congratulate Brandon Janke as the new Head Coach for the Midget AE Otters Team for the upcoming season - welcome Brandon.

The following details are time sensitive regarding AE teams for the 2019-2020 season:

Atom and PeeWee:
-currently there are not enough players to support an AE team in these divisions - the final decision regarding icing an AE team in each of these divisions will be made at the final Rep tryout on Monday, September 9th - players released from the Rep team will either be released to AE (if numbers support) or Local League (if numbers dictate)
-if you have an interest in trying out in either of these divisions for a Rep/AE team, please make sure to contact Amanda Jones, HMHA Registrar at [email protected] to get on the list ASAP and allow the coaches time to properly plan their remaining tryouts with an accurate knowledge of numbers attending
Bantam and Midget:
-the current tryout numbers in both of these divisions support the icing of an AE team for the 2019-2020 season

FYI - after the first entry Rep team has formed their roster, the minimum number HMHA is looking at to form an AE team is 13 skaters and 1 goalie. It is preferable to have a full bench to be able to support an enjoyable season for everyone on the team, as a short bench becomes even shorter if a team experiences illness, injury or other absence of its players. As with all our decisions, we take into account all the information available to us prior to making a final decision.
