Thanks for asking but I hope I have your coaches covered with November 24, Outpost. 

My customary practice is one early September at Outpost and one late November Taos or Los Alamos for the reasons you mentioned.

This year almost no one signed up in September so I canceled it. 

Everyone gets the opportunity to join us the 24th. There is a bonus. One ice session with myself and local staff and another with Joe Bonnett ADM Director for USAH. Mites on the ice and class attendees assisting or witnessing the ADM practice he directs. 

I hope this will work out for your coaches I don’t expect that I can pull this off annually. Meaning I can’t promise this opportunity will arise again. Level 2 coaches needing recert for 3 are also welcome, they will help Joe administer the ADM clinic and have class sessions for level 3 certification.



You are welcome to distribute this email for affected coaches. Thanks!

CORRECTION TO: Register now for Nov Elks Hull Hockey Camp


CORRECTION: We had the ages too restrictive and now have corrected them.  Some said they could not register their kid in the appropriate age groups.  Try again if you had this problem.

This camp will provide an advanced powerskating and technique camp.  All ages from Atoms (age 5) through Midgets.


Teaching powerskating is my passion and I firmly believe the most important skill any young hockey player can focus on is skating – “The best players are the best skaters!” These sessions will include lots of advanced edge-work and foot-work. The drills will have a huge focus on balance & coordination, body-weight shifts, and using their edges in ways they probably never have before! The players will be challenged to execute drills that will force them to get better and stronger on their feet – The more they can do in their skates, the better hockey players they will become. Drills will be ran with a high pace to ensure maximum repetitions per player. The best part about this camp is that the players thrive on challenging themselves and end up absolutely loving this one!

These sessions are guaranteed to:

  • Stretch the skater’s legs out
  • Build leg and core strength
  • Improve endurance, conditioning, balance & coordination
  • Highly Improve edge-work & foot-work (both forwards & backwards)
  • Increase recognition of how body-weight shifts can improve posture & technique
  • Improve overall skating ability

Sorry for the flyer does not go out but it is on the website to the left of this message.


LAHA Members,

Below is a flyer for the subject.  Most of you won't need this but some may have a child coming of age 5, 6, or 7.  If not please pass onto youir friends or neighbors that might have children who might be interested.

Registration is open

Please read for clarification, and if it is still unclear please ask. 


Atom Registration for Birth Year 2013 and later: First time player ages 7 and under may register free for the first half of the season, Phase IReturning Atoms of any age will need to pay for registration. If your player is Birth Year 2013 and has played before they will be a Mite, and should register under Recreational House or NMHRL (see below).

Recreational House and NMRHL 

Recreational House: The Mite (8U-Birth Year 2011 and 2012), Squirt (10U-Birth Year 2009 and 2010), Peewee (12U-Birth Year 2007 and 2008), Bantam (14U-Birth Year 2005 and 2006), Midget (18U-Birth  Year 2001 and younger) levels offer a “Recreational House Only” which requires no travel outside of Los Alamos.  All games and practices will be held in Los Alamos!  This option may appeal to those families who wish to limit their travel and time commitment, or those who are brand new to hockey and are looking for a way to test out the sport.

NMRHL: If your athlete wishes to play in games against other New Mexico recreational hockey teams (NMRHL), in addition to house league games, choose the Recreationad and House NMRHL option.  Most families will want to register for this option.  This will require you to travel to Sant Fe, Taos, Albuquerque and Rio Rancho to play games.

High School ages register for the highest level team on which they plan to play, see below for explainations on the differences between Midget Developmental or Varsity.

High School

High school aged athletes should register for the highest level team on which they plan to play, Midget Developmental (formerly known as JV) or Varsity. Players born in 2005 have many options, Bantam, Midget Developmental, or Varsity (if selected). Register that player for the highest level team on which they plan to play. If they would like to play with the Midget Developmental team they only need to sign up for that and they will be eligible to play at the Bantam level as well; the higher fee covers play at both levels. If they do not want to play with the Midget Developmental team then they will need to register for Bantams. The key is to register the player for the HIGHEST level team for which they will play games.

Volunteer Requirements

Volunteer Requirements

LAHA Adult Volunteer registration is open and ready for the 2019-2020 season- volunteers must register- it's free.

USAH requires volunteers to have a background screening as well as SafeSport Training (takes about 2 hrs.) prior to any volunteer activity.

These are mandatory and are good for two years. If you completed a SafeSport training two years ago, then you only need to complete the refresher course this year (not as long as initial training).

If you are someone who falls within the listed positions below, please complete these items ASAP.

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST- there are links and instructions you must follow.

Per the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Handbook those who need to be screened include:

1. Members of the LAHA Board of Directors

2. Local program administrators

3. Coaches

4. Team managers

5. Officials (over 18)

6. Locker room monitors

7. Travel chaperones

8. Anyone with regular, routine or frequent access to youth participants

9.  NEW THIS YEAR--the requirement that players born in 2002 will be required to complete Safesport

We may require that additional persons be screened.


Please check to see if your name appears on http://www.newmexicohockey.org/page/show/829216-good-to-go the "Good To Go" list first.

Screenings are good for 2 years, and you may have been cleared for this season already from a previous screening. Only proceed if your name doesn't appear on the list or if it is in RED.

Screenings cost a considerable amount of money, please only do them every two years.

If your name doesn't appear, please proceed to the link below, this part is very quick.

The website is: https://loeaha.volunteerportal.net/    password: hockeyiscool

Please remember, the background screenings can take 2 - 4 business days, and then have to be manually entered on the LOEAHA site. Therefore, should you not see your name on the list after 4 days, please email me directly before running another unnecessary screening.


This part takes a couple of hours, but is required. 

First, you must register as coach, referee, or volunteer on the USAH website, a membership number is required for the training. https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action

Once registration has been completed, then please proceed to the SafeSport training page.


Please keep a copy of your training certificate for your records.
