Our mission is to promote Michigan High School hockey and good sportsmanship in conjunction with the highest possible academic achievement for our student athletes.
As you can see, we have a tremendous amount of benefits. However, possibly the number one reason to join the Association is the unity among HS teams with hockey programs. The more unified we are, the greater voice we have. The greater voice we have tells players why they should play HS hockey. It is a great help to all of us when we are unified.
Over the past 6 months we have added Craig Peterson as our Hub update person. Craig has done a great job of researching where all former HS players are playing and updating the Hub with lots of information. High School hockey as always been a well-kept secret because we didn’t promote all of the great things that are happening. I think you will find with the Hub etc. that has changed.
Here is a detailed list of benefits that the Coaches Association offers to coaches and their student-athletes:
