The Ithaca Adult Hockey Association was formed during the summer of 1999 by a group of players from both the Cass Park and the Rink leagues. The primary goal of IAHA is to promote a healthy and fun recreational adult hockey league in Ithaca by providing oversight of the league administration, improving parity among teams, promoting sportsmanship, and encouraging players at all skill levels to participate.

Hello Hockey Players,
Wow, what a difference a year makes. Or a month. Or a week.
Planning for hockey season was pretty simple a year ago. There was not going to be a season. A month ago, we thought it was going to be pretty straight forward. Maybe we’d need a tweak or two from our normal routine, but we’d be able to use our usual planning model to move through the season. Today, it’s pretty apparent that the COVID situation is again very dynamic, and we’ll need to plan to be flexible as conditions change.
We’ve begun our planning. One decision we have made is that all participants will need to have completed a COVID-19 vaccination routine at least two weeks before their first regular season or pre-season game. We’ll include instructions for providing your proof of vaccination with the registration material. If you have not yet been vaccinated, and you want to play, go get your shot. Today.
Next, we need you to help us continue with planning. We need to get a gauge on numbers, as well as people’s COVID-19 sensitivities and concerns. Please respond (once) to our survey. https://cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3w4Iswi9XlU80xU
Sponsors – if anyone is interested in sponsoring a team, or knows someone who would like to sponsor, let Ray or Eric know. The sponsor will be required to provide a set of jerseys (league specification will be provided), or pay a fee of $500.
Goalies – we anticipate the need for several additional goalies this season. Please ask around.
As always, please pass on any comments or concerns to any board member, or the full board. Thanks, and we hope to see you on the ice soon.
