Port Huron Minor Hockey Association is currently accepting coaching applications for passionate and knowledgeable hockey coaches who have a desire to be part of an association rich in tradition. PHMHA has coaching opportunities for both head coaches and assistant coaches throughout our programs, as well as at all youth age groups and levels. While we seek significant coaching experience at the advanced levels, we have coaching opportunities for coaches with varied years of experience and even none. PHMHA will guide applicants through the process of receiving the appropriate USA Hockey Coaching Certification for the level they will be coaching. Qualified applicant must be certified through USA Hockey’s education program, must complete age specific online coaching modules, successfully complete a background investigation and have a passion for coaching and mentoring youth athletes.
The PHMHA Board of Directors comprises up to 9 members who are responsible for managing the affairs of the Association in compliance with MAHA and USA Hockey guidelines. These volunteers make a major commitment of time and energy, working as a team to provide a sound program for youth hockey players. Directors are elected for three year terms by the voting membership present at an annual meeting held in May. Board members whose terms expire may run for reelection. Terms are staggered so there is a continuing core of Directors each year. Persons interested in being considered for election to the Board should fill out this application indicating their interests, skills and qualifications. The election procedure is delineated in the By-laws of the organization which are posted on PHMHA's website and on file with MAHA.
PHMHA board of directors require an energetic hockey parent, committed to the continuous improvement of our hockey association. Board Member duties include attending monthly meetings, working during association events including: registration, tryouts, preskates, jamborees, and district tournaments. Each Board Member is expected to fill one of the following roles as well: president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, ice scheduler, fund raising coordinator, equipment manager, level director, ACE coordinator, or others. Some of these roles will be filled by non-board members, but the board members are expected to fill one of these roles at least. Together, a board full of energetic, dedicated parents will help drive this association to provide the best overall hockey experience possible for our kids.
Through generous donations from past Port Huron Minor Hockey Association families we are fortunate enough to be able to provide financial assistance to families going through a financial hardship.
Applicants are encouraged to participate in the many fundraisers put on by the association to help the financial burden.
At Port Huron Minor Hockey we believe in challenging the kids. We also want to make sure kids are not moving up just to fill a void but are actually playing up because of their abilities. If you'd like your child to play up a level fill out this online form and someone from the board will contact you to attend an evaluation skate for your child.
Use this online forms to submit your official roster request. You can not play in any games until you have a stamped and approved USA Hockey roster. A game is anything that has referees on the ice. A scrimmage is a game.
