We are sending this to you with so much unknown with hockey.
First, we hope this letter finds you, your athlete and your family healthy and safe.
NMICE is currently working on planning the upcoming 2020-2021 hockey season, but as we, USA Hockey and the Outpost continue working through the challenges of COVID-19 and ever-changing state mandates and safety guidelines - the season structure and dates remain uncertain.
But there is good news! If you haven't heard, the Outpost has installed their ice and has slowly been reopening its doors to athletic fitness and exercise activities.
NMICE at this time cannot sponsor these activities. However, we would like to let you know that there are opportunities for athletes to rent private Ice.
If you are interested in private ice rentals for hockey exercise, please let us know or call the outpost to reserve your ice today.
Please keep in mind that all athletes and patrons must comply with Outpost regulations as they are currently mandated. Right now, that means face coverings for everyone, including athletes on the ice. Social distancing as much as possible and just being conscientious to common sense health precautions. The Outpost has gone to great lengths to ensure the facility is clean and sanitized - and that the environment is as welcoming as possible. Compliance with Outpost rules is non-negotiable, we expect everyone to adhere so we don't risk our health and safety - or the ability of the Outpost to stay open - so our athletes can continue exercising and participating in ice sports fitness.
If you are interested in renting some ice time, please contact the Outpost scheduler, Kara, at

USAH has changed how they do initial registration. Every player and volunteer must register with USAH first before they sign up for LAHA (not up yet)!!
As of April 1, 2020, we can register for next year. I know this may seem a little pre-mature with COVID-19 all around us, but it is the way it is. We also do not know yet if our rink project will be affected by this virus. So far, it has not. USAH also has decided that they are using one national screening organization instead of lettting each affiliate choose their own background screening company. Also, there is a $30 charge for this per paerson. However, this fee is being absorbed by LAHA ($10 and LOEAHA $20 (state affiliate to USAH). Since, you only need background screening for 18 year olds and all adult volunteers every 2 years, this on the average is only $5 to LAHA/person/year.
To register for next year's hockey with USAH and file the application for back ground screening use this link
You will be able to register with USAH first in this link. Then do the background screening. If you are uncertain if you need the background screening, there is another page that will allow you to check your status before you go forward to screening.
When you register with USAH, you will get a receipt that says "CONFIRMATION NUMBER". It does not say your USAH number for 20-21 but the confirmatioin number is your USAH number. When you start right off with the screening process there will be a blank that asks for your USAH number but there is already a number there. It is not your number, you must type in your USAH number for 2021. I reported this to USAH and hopefully they will be cleaned up.
Also, when you have finished your screeing process, you will get a screen that shows PayPal button, DO NOT CLICK THAT BUTTON, just be patient and that screen will update and USAH pays for the screening at this level. You will also need a photo ID, such as drivers license, passport, birth certificate, state ID, etc. to upload
I have gone through all of this, so I could help anyone who needs to do this. It is a pretty good system for USAH registration and for background screening. Contact me by email or phone (top of website).
