Little Dipper 8U Mite Red Evaluations

Anchorage Hockey Association is proud to announce Chris Heisten as the Head Coach of AHA’s Little Dippers 8U Mite Red Program. Chris has been coaching with AHA North Stars program every year since his retirement from Professional hockey in 2005. Heisten brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for teaching the fundamentals of hockey to young hockey players. Chris will be joined by his brother, AHA coaching director Barrett Heisten and Mite director Matt Shasby to help develop our young athletes. Our Red program will follow USA Hockey ADM model guidelines, where our coaches will use age-appropriate training methods to help develop our young athletes skill sets. At this age, skill development is our top priority.

Evaluations for the Red program (2006 & 2007 birth years) will take place September 8th & 10th from 6:00 to 7:00pm at BB2. You will first need to register your child with our Little Dippers “White” division to participate in our Red evaluations; evaluations will be free of charge for all 2006 & 2007 birth year players that have registered with AHA. If your child is selected to play for our Red program, additional fees apply. Our Red program will practice on Monday and Wednesday evenings and will play half-ice games versus other associations (Allstars, Eagle River, Moose, Valley) on the weekends.

Any questions about our Little Dippers Mite program, please contact Barrett Heisten: ahacoachingdirector@gmail.com

    The Legacy of Anchorage Hockey Association and the Anchorage North Stars

    Articles of Incorporation and by-laws for AHA were filed on June 6, 1961 making the Anchorage Hockey Association (AHA) officially 53 years old. The principal founder of AHA was Dempsey Anderson who coached for AHA for several years and provided skating instruction and moral guidance to several generations of Anchorage hockey players. The Dempsey Anderson Arena was named in memory of Coach Anderson. AHA is a charter member (since 1972) of the Alaska State Hockey Association (ASHA). Anchorage Hockey Association is sanctioned as an affiliate of USA Hockey, the national governing body for amateur hockey in the United States.

    As the largest and most comprehensive youth hockey organization in Alaska, AHA is proud of its legacy of being the leader in offering all levels of hockey to the boys and girls of Anchorage. Many past AHA players have advanced to higher levels of the sport in the junior, collegiate and  professional ranks. Many more have applied the lessons learned through participating in hockey in their everyday activities and have continued as volunteers in AHA. Whether you aspire to win the Stanley Cup or the AHA End-of-Season Championship, hockey will always be a part of your life you’ll never forget. The skills learned here will help prepare you for life – setting goals, developing leadership skills, promoting teamwork and fair play, respect for others, and giving back to our community. Many of our former players have come back to AHA as coaches and volunteers. We have multiple generations of proud AHA families and players. You, too, can be a part of AHA's legacy.

    To play the game is great; to love the game is greater.
