The American Special Hockey Association (ASHA) will open registration for the 2020 – 2021 season on Wednesday, September 9, 2020. 

As in the past, there are no fees for ASHA Membership for the 2020/2021 Season. 

We encourage all current ASHA Members (players, junior coaches, senior coaches, and volunteers) to register early WITH YOUR TEAM MANAGER.  While many teams are adapting their return to the ice due to COVID, ASHA will be supporting new programs and activities off the ice for member teams.   

We do remind all teams that a background check and child safety training is required for senior coaches, adult volunteers, and junior coaches 18 years of age or older at the time of registration.   We have migrated to a new system and it may take some time to update each team with their updated coach verifications.  ASHA will notify Members when a new background check or training is required.  We realize that this process can be a challenge to navigate.  If you have any concerns or difficulties with the process, please contact us so we can help you.  If the process cannot be completed, it could jeopardize your insurance coverage. 

Last season ASHA had over 4,000 Active Members and over 90 teams registering during the season. As ASHA continues to expand throughout the country, and with the increase of ASHA-sponsored festivals/tournaments across the country, we want to ensure that every team has all the support they need as registered members.  

While we may be playing differently this season, we will still be connected and engaged with you!
