AHIHA Volunteer Staff

AHIHA Volunteer Staff

Our volunteers come from all over the U.S. and Canada! Many volunteers have been a part of AHIHA for over 30 years! Some are former players, parents, and others are educators, interpreters and college and professional coaches! Every one of our volunteers has a story to tell! We are always looking for new faces to our organization.

All volunteers – including interpreters, coaches, on and off ice personnel MUST register with USA Hockey. There are specific requirements for coaches that are different than other volunteers.
