Auckland Ice Hockey Association is looking for new referees.
If you have wanted to become more involved in the Auckland ice hockey community, and if you skate and have some experience with the game of hockey, this is your chance.
Officiating is challenging and rewarding and another way to enjoy the game of ice hockey. You work with quality people as part of the “third team.” It is a great way to get in extra skating and with the rule knowledge and principles of officiating you will learn, you will become a better player. For younger players, there is the chance of officiating international hockey, ultimately (maybe even the NHL?). You’ll even earn some money for refereeing games too!
We need officials for all levels of hockey, from Under 12 cross-ice to the adult leagues. If you have never officiated before, don’t worry! We will train you up and put you on the ice with experienced officials as you get started.
We strongly encourage you to complete your registration form online ahead of time, to avoid delays at the rink.
Fees & Payment Options:
Parents can purchase concession cards at the rate of $150.00 for 10 sessions or pay for sessions individually at the casual rate of $20.00 per session without a card. Concession cards will be available for purchase at both rinks – please ensure you turn up early to purchase your card. We will have EFTPOS, VISA and cash facilities available.
Please note, due to increasing credit card processing fees from our payment gateway provider, those who wish to pay via credit card will incur a 3.5% convinience fee, added to their total amount. EFTPOS and debit card transactions will not incur a fee.
All concession cards purchased in 2018 with leftover concessions will be valid for 2019.
Players can hire a range of gear for a fee of $30.00 per term (plus a refundable bond of $50.00). If you need to hire gear, please ensure you arrive early at the rink to find suitable gear for your child.
2019 U12 Super League: More information about the 2019 Under 12 Super League season will be sent out in the coming weeks.
If you have any questions, or require more information please get in touch with the 2019 Learn to Play League Director, Sheree Anderson, ph: 027 617 8090 | e: firstname.lastname@example.org
That’s all from us – we hope you have a great 2019 Learn to Play Season!

Auckland Ice Hockey Association are seeking new off-ice officials to assist with the score bench.
If you have ever wanted to become more involved in the Auckland ice hockey community but do not skate (or even if you do), this is your chance!
Staffing the score bench involves working with the on-ice officials to record penalties and game statistics and working the game clock (one score bench official for each job). Score bench officials receive $16 in game fees per game, and so this could be a great opportunity for high school age family members, too.
No experience necessary, we will train you up! If you are interested and would like more information, please contact: email@example.com
Sharpen your skates, tape up your sticks and clean the cobwebs out of your helmets…AIHA is pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 ice hockey season!
Yes it’s true – it’s time to put down the mince and cheese pies and begin your rigorous cardio training plans (click here for some inspiration) as the 2019 season is officially upon us and we’ve made a number of changes to make this the best season yet, make sure you read below to find out more.
Due to ice time fee increases by Paradice, playing fees have increased by 5% for 2019. AIHA’s costs have increased each year over the last 3 years, but to date these have not been passed on.
2019 Playing fees will consist of:
Registration Fee – Due 1 March 2019 – $175.00
Ice Fee Instalment 1 – Due 1st March 2019 – $149.00
Ice Fee Instalment 2 – Due 1st June 2019 – $149.00
Ice Fee Instalment 3 – Due 1st August 2019 – $149.00
A total prompt payment discount of $65.50 will apply if all fees are paid prior to March 1st. Please ensure you support the Club by paying your fees on time, or even better, early!
Payments can be processed through ClubHub at the time of registration or after you have registered.
Based on player feedback, and to keep consistent with our other leagues, we have re-branded the Senior-Non Check league to the AHL (Adult Hockey League)
New League Director:
Bill Bartlett has taken on the role of league director for 2019, please help support Bill in his new role. You can contact Bill via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to acknowledge and say a special thank you to Karl Peni for his many years of service to AIHA and New Zealand ice hockey.
Monday Night Games:
You asked – we listened! Feedback from players has seen us add games on a Monday night to help spread out the games and increase rink availability. Plus, it gives you an excuse to knock off work early!
Monday night games will initially take place 6:45pm – 7:45pm, 8:00pm – 9:00pm and 9:15pm – 10:15pm and once the Bantam & Junior leagues start in late April, reduce to the 9:15pm – 10:15pm slot only.
The 2019 AHL season will start on March 23rd.
The playoffs format worked well and feedback was great, so we will retain this for 2019. Playoffs will run as follows:
A League – Semi-final knock out game, followed by best of 3 finals series.
B & C League – Quarter final knock out game, semi-final knock out game, followed by best of 3 series.
The full schedule will be available on our scheduling website prior to the season starting – click here
The Adult Hockey League needs referees! Without referees we cannot run games and we have been running pretty thin on the bench over recent seasons. So, if you would like to try on the stripes and engage with the game in a different way, join the “third team!” We will train you and get you up to speed in no time! Contact email@example.com for more information.
U12 Super League / Bantam / Junior League / Registrations:
Registrations for the Bantam and Junior leagues are now open. Please refer to the separate email you have been sent or view the news post here. U12 Super League registration will open shortly, we will contact you once registration opens.
Questions / More Information:
If you have any questions or require more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you.
We are looking forward to a fantastic season of ice hockey – see you on ice!
