To cover the process:
Mites: all mite players are required to attend the evaluation skates. Girls registered for Coach Brandons teams do not need to attend, but can if they so choose. Players will be rated by the coaching staff and independent raters for the purposes of placing players on the two, evenly drafted teams. The players should have their team assignments by end of the week after the eval skate
LTP/6U: All 6U/LTP players will be evaluated together regardless of the division selection at registration. The coaching staff and independent raters will evaluate players. The top 18 or so rated players will be placed on our new 6U team, while the balance will be placed into our LTP program. The biggest difference between the two sections will be that the LTP program will not start its games until later in the season instead focusing the early portion of the season on additional practice and development time. There will be some additional costs and travel associated with our 6U team so players selected will have the option to decline the placement and instead stay w/the LTP program.
We are still looking for volunteers to help with the LTP program, so if you're interested, please let us know!
Running an association the size of the LHA is no easy task. With a projected 400+ kids and over 20 teams this fall, we're incredibly thankful for our volunteer leadership board. Our new board was elected at the last AGM and had their first in-person board meeting last night.
We wanted to welcome new board members:
Who join returning board members
The new board and the association are excited about the direction we're heading and look forward to continuing to make Livonia a destination for great families looking for great hockey!
Our first ever Livonia Hockey Association Adult Learn to Play Program was a success with 32 of our Assoication Parents and Friends particpating in an 8 week program to help them go from the stands to the ice, culminating with a full game in front of family and friends.
The 32 intrepid skaters spent 7 weeks going through a 'boot camp' learning everything from basic skating concepts, puck possesion, positioning, fun games and small area competitions and yes, they skated a mountain.
Our final game was played infront of packed stands with over 100 folks in attendence. The game was a success with all playing extremely well, but in the end the Blue Team prevalied.
Thanks to everyone who particpated and look for a similar program in the future!

The Livonia Hockey Association (LHA), a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization, has been a fixture in our community for many years with a mission to promote and develop recreational opportunities for the youth of the City of Livonia and beyond; to promote citizenship and fellowship through the medium of ice hockey; to foster good sportsmanship and cultivate physical welfare through organized competition in the game of ice hockey.
The LHA provides a positive learning experience for all boys and girls through qualified adult leadership in a safe, healthy, and fun environment. We provide programs to meet the needs of beginning skaters, as well as programs that offer opportunities to those players who wish to pursue more competitive environments.
All persons involved with the LHA are volunteers who are dedicated to the principal that winning is secondary to the molding of these future adults who are ready to contribute positively to our community.
We thank our volunteers, our families, and our players for making Livonia a great place to play the best game on Earth!
