Reminder – Registration for the 2018-2019 MMHA Season!

If you missed early registration, MMHA would like to invite you to register for the 2018-2019 MMHA season!

Registration forms and fees for the upcoming season can be found on our Registration page. Please make a note of the change in the Novice registration fees for this season.

This is a starting point for many children, creating positive life long memories and an initiation into team play as well as sportsmanship. These are all important factors in a child’s development. The executive members are committed to providing the youth in this community with a fun, exciting and safe environment to enjoy this great game.

Looking for volunteer coaching staff. If you are interested in being part of the coaching staff, please call Brandon at 705-303-4878 or come out to Mike Rodden Arena on registration night. If you are interested, take a look at our Team Officials page to find out what is required as a volunteer and to get your application form. Come join us! Let’s work together to make the Rockets a winning club!

Welcome to all new registrants and welcome back to those that have already been part of the organization. Let’s look forward to a fun filled hockey season!

Family, parents, and friends, we welcome you to subscribe to MMHA news on this website. You can unsubscribe at any time.

If you have news, photos, etc. to submit, then send it to us at [email protected] and we can publish it.

GO ROCKETS GO!

Jumpstart

Jumpstart is a national charity with a commitment to local communities. Canadian Tire Corporation recognized that organized sports connect kids to their communities and makes sure that money raised stays where it is donated.

Kids aged 4 to 18 who want to get active can receive funding to help with registration fees, equipment and/or transportation. Families must meet financial need criteria in order to qualify for Jumpstart funding. For further information refer to Funding Criteria and Application.

Reminder – Respect In Sport Parent Program

The Mattawa Minor Hockey Association is committed to fostering a safe and fun hockey environment for all participants. In support of this, it is required that at least one parent of each player registered in minor hockey take the Respect in Sport Program for Parents. The program is a proactive, educational program that empowers parents with the tools to ensure that the games are enjoyable and respectful for the parents, the players and all other participants in the game.

Caution – Fraudulent emails being sent!

MMHA would like to advise everyone that there is someone representing themselves as the MMHA President Brandon Neault and sending out emails using a different email address. Several of the MMHA executive members have received such emails. Typically there is a request for money. MMHA would like to recommend that should you receive such emails you contact the police.

2017-2018 hall of fame …

Congratulations to all Rockets for an outstanding season !!!

Although the Rockets play the game, a round of applause has to be given to the dedicated MMHA executive, coaching staff, and parents that support and guide the teams.

A big Thank You! to the staff at Mike Rodden Arena for maintaining the venue for games and practices.

Great season!

Awards for this season were presented at the annual awards ceremony held on April 15th at Mike Rodden Arena. Refreshments were enjoyed by all!

The Bobby Bass memorial trophy is awarded to the player who shows a passion for the game, both on and off the ice.

The Chick Webster trophy has been traditionally awarded to a midget player in their final year who has had a exemplary Rockets career, shows leadership, sportsmanship, and sets a great example for all of the younger players following in their footsteps. Given that there was no midget team this year, the award was presented to a player in one of the other divisions.


Congratulations to the winners!

Just super.

The DC and Marvel Super Heroes weren’t around, but actually they were, in the form of the Mattawa Atom Rockets, as the club put on a super effort in becoming overall champions on Super Sunday.

After taking the crown of the East Division Championship the weekend before, the Atom Rockets went undefeated in the battle of the best on the weekend of March 3 and 4 in Astorville.
