TCAHA is updating the registration process for public skate fundraisers. All registration will be done through an online form on this website. We will open registration for public skates Thursday, October 16 at 9 am. Initially each team will be allowed to select only one date on a first come, first serve basis. After two weeks, teams will be allowed to select a second date from those that remain (if any). The online form will remain available until all weekends have been taken. Additional public skate dates may be added.
Please make sure you initially register for only one public skate date. If your team registers for two or more public skates during the first two weeks, all dates will be eliminated and you will have to wait until everyone else has had a chance to pick a single date.
Teams must also have a primary sponsor before they can host a public skate. We will check and choose another team if your team does not have a primary sponsor 1 week prior to your selected date.
TCAHA is currently in need of Age Group Coordinators (AGC) for our BP, Mite, Squirt, and Midget house age groups and is accepting nominations. If the prior AGC is not continuing, the new AGCs are chosen by the Head Coaches of their division following the drafts. But we need volunteer nominations! This is a very important volunteer position in our organization that helps us run more efficiently.
Below is more information on the AGC position from our TCAHA Handbook.
If for any reason the Division/Age Group Coordinator is unavailable, he/she shall appoint a Head Coach from within the division to serve as his/her temporary replacement.
The Division/Age Group Coordinator should possess good communication skills, and must be generally accessible (Email, fax, etc. desirable) to coordinate division issues and resolve problems.
Attend regular meetings and serve as a voting member on TCAHA Coaching Committee.
Hold meetings of the division coaches as needed to administer activities in the division.
Facilitate communications between the coaches in the division and the Coaching Committee.
Assist with the identification and selection of coaches for the division and other decisions associated with coaches in the division. Ensure that coaches and on-ice helpers have the appropriate insurance and coaching credentials.
Assist coaches in the division with adhering to all rules and regulations of USA Hockey, PNAHA, and TCAHA.
Be the point of contact for scheduling issues and requests for teams in the division.
Assist the Scheduling Committee to ensure that an equal number of games are played between the teams in the division (applicable only to Recreation divisions, and only to association provided ice time).
Assist the Scheduling Committee with monthly ice schedule reconciliation for teams in the division to account for trades, cancelled ice, etc. Notify the Scheduling Committee as soon as possible if scheduled ice will not be used to allow the Scheduling Committee the opportunity to find others that can use the ice, per the ice cancellation policy in Section 7 of this handbook.
Assist in the coordination of tournament and weekend game opportunities (i.e., travel requiring overnight stay) to assure equity between teams in the division. Assist teams with tournament applications.
Obtain approval from the Scheduling Committee before allowing teams to commit to tournaments or other weekend travel. This prevents scheduling conflicts (applicable only to Recreation divisions).

Coordinate the placement of a player, who registers after the draft and/or team selection along with all coaches in said age group.
Preside at the draft and coordinate with the attending Board Representative to ensure that all decisions made during the draft are fair for all teams and consistent with TCAHA rules and regulations pertaining to player distribution.
Attend other games within the division when possible. This will provide the coordinator with the ability to self-assess any situations that may require reports to the Association committees or disciplinary action.
Attend Team Managers Committee meetings.
Assist the registrar with obtaining copies of score sheets for all home and away games.
Coordinate that division’s tournament(s) planning.
