Purpose

Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association, VSAHA, has devoted a considerable number of hours monitoring the youth sports world throughout Vermont.  In conjunction with our member associations, leaders in state government and partners in New England Hockey, we are happy to share the following information in regards to the 2020-2021 youth hockey season.  Our intent is to help our members provide a safe and practical hockey experience that can still be feasible given the state restrictions and guidelines that are in place.  It is imperative that our members follow these guidelines and rules in order to keep our rinks open, keep our kids on the ice and to keep our communities safe.  

Note: This is a living document and will be updated as necessary.
