Rosters For Regular Season 3 On 3 Events

3 on 3 tournaments are allowed during the regular season.  All players need to present their USA Hockey Registration Confirmation Page or evidence that they are on an official 1T roster to provide proof the players are USA Hockey members.

Rosters For Post Season 3 On 3 Leagues

Post season 3 on 3 leagues that are run by associations/clubs or independent contractors will not be required to roster these teams.  All associations/clubs or independent contractors running 3 on 3 leagues are required to have all players participating be registered with USA Hockey and all their registration receipt/confirmation pages scanned into their USA Hockey Registration Portal.  A listing of all players participating in the 3 on 3 League will need to be forwarded to the USA Hockey Registrar for Michigan.

Guidelines Regarding Non-Sanctioned Play (AAU Teams)

Refer to the 2019-20 USA Hockey Annual Guide Policies:

Multiple Spring Teams

Starting in the 2019 Spring season, Tier 1 organizations will only be allowed to have one (1) Tier 1 (AAA) team in each age classification.  This is a rule that has been in the MAHA guide book, but never enforced. 

2018-19 Season 30% Rule For Squirt Minor/Squirt A

During the 2017-18 Season, the MAHA State Playoff Committee (SPOC) discussed the 30% rule for the 9U (Squirt Minor/Squirt A) age division.  If a Squirt Minor/Squirt A team played more than 30% of their games against Tier 1 (AAA) teams, the Squirt Minor/Squirt A team would be ineligible for MAHA Districts and States. 
The SPOC met 5/12/18 and determined, since USA Hockey and MAHA don't recognize Tier 1 (AAA) hockey at the 9U (Squirt Minor/Squirt A) level, the SPOC would not be able to determine which out of state teams would count towards the 30% number, since some States recognize Tier 1 (AAA) at 9U.  The 30% rules do not count for the 9U (Squirt Minor/Squirt A) age classification.  
Reference 57th MAHA Rules & Regulations: VI. M. 1. a. (page 29).

Citizen Requirements For 2019-20

>All transfers and paperwork for all non-US citizens must be forwarded to the USA Hockey Transfer Department and approved before players are placed on a roster.
>Guardianship paperwork does not change the resident status.
>Estimated time for a transfer to be completed is a minimum of 3 working days and a maximum 7 days after it has been received by the USA Hockey Transfer Department.  Once it is approved, it will appear as approved on the registration form.
