2020-21 TAHA Registration Page is now LIVE

TAHA plans to offer as close to a normal season as possible but we are following the guidance of NYS and practices may be submitted for games until we are given the green light for competitive play.

Important COVID related Info

The full COVID-19 protocol is available below for your review, but here are critical elements to follow when coming to Frear Park:

Everyone entering the rink must fill this form for each event they plan to attend:

  • Frear Park Ice Rink will open 15 minutes prior to your scheduled on-ice time
  • Anyone arriving early MUST wait outside, preferably at/in their car, to avoid congregating in the entrance area.
  • All players, coaches, parents/spectators and staff MUST wear a mask when entering and exiting Frear Park.  
  • Players MUST bring their own water bottles that are clearly marked/ labeled with their name. 
  • All players MUST enter Frear Park completely dressed (minus: helmets, skates and gloves). Exceptions will be made for goalies, who may need to put on additional equipment at the rink. 
  • Hockey bags are NOT permitted in Frear Park at this time.  A small personal belonging bag will be permitted but all belonging will be brought to the ice area and NOTHING will remain in the locker rooms.
  • Players will exit the ice along the rink glass to remove skates and then head to the lobby to meet their parents for departure.  There is NO RETURNING to the locker room area.

Getting Better at Home


We have put together a program for our players to work on their skill development with some off-ice drills. We assembled what we hope could serve as a starting point for empowering our players to enhance/advance their hockey skills at home.

Below is an explanation of the program, and the program itself, which will be sent to players via Instagram and posted on the website, in addition to this message to you, the parents. Your support of this effort is much appreciated. We are rolling out the program to the players tomorrow (Monday, April 20, 2020).

We are awarding a $25 Pure Hockey gift card once every two weeks (for a total of four gift cards). This will be given as the result of a drawing every two weeks. Players will become eligible for the drawing depending upon their level of participation.

***Parents please be sure your player knows that they must fulfill ALL 3 requirements to
be eligible for the drawing.

Here is the program and weekly workout checklist:
