American Amputee Hockey Association

About the AAHA

Put your disability on ice.


The AAHA is a new disabled hockey association whose primary mission is to develop the sport of ice hockey for amputees and other amateur athletes, regardless of race, gender, physical ability, who are interested in competing locally, nationally, and internationally.  We are sanctioned by USA Hockey and Disabled Sports USA to conduct developmental camps and clinics and to advance the goal of future Paralympic participation of amputee hockey players competing upright on or with their prostheses.

Amputee Hockey is identical to amateur ice hockey with the exception that the athletes are missing one or more of their upper or lower extremities.  Competing with other amputees allows participation in a fast-paced exciting sport on a "level playing field", the hockey rink.

One of the AAHA's objectives is to grow the sport at the national level, with the hopes that other national teams and international tournaments will follow.  We hope to compete in an exhibition tournament in Salt Lake City as part of the 2002 Paralympic Games.

"Getting back on the ice was something I thought would never happen again."  The AAHA is helping to realize the dreams of amputees who want to play hockey once again after injury or disease.  "It was fast-paced, competitiveďż˝this is HOCKEY!" The AAHA is also helping amputees who wish to learn to play hockey for the first time.  Come check it out!
