Welcome to the Hutchinson Hockey Association

The Hutchinson Hockey Association (HHA) strives to create an environment that encourages creativity, discipline, leadership, sportsmanship and competition, thus building character in all youth who choose to participate.  Our youth are our greatest asset.

2024 Summer Shooting Challenge

2024 Summer Shot Club Badge

This is an optional 'challenge' to encourage skill development during the off-season!

Timing: May 1- August 31

Categories (# of shots):
2,000-3,999 | 4,000-5,999 | 6,000-7,999 | 8,000-9,999 | 10,000+

Any player from any level can participate in any category! Please encourage your player(s) to make a goal before starting the challenge. There are about 120 days in the challenge to factor a daily average, i.e. 6,000/120 = 50 shots per day.  Any shot counts - wrist shot, slap shot, snap shot, backhand, etc - so mix it up and keep track. A parent must initial the # of shots each day to check in on a regular basis.

The Hutchinson Hockey Association is planning for the 2024-2025 season. We are looking for youth travel team coaches who are dependable, knowledgeable and have a passion for coaching youth hockey.

If it is of interest please email our Coach in Chief at for more information and to apply.
