Website Sponsor Commitment Form

The Detroit Hockey Association (DHA) is an amateur, non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax exempt youth ice hockey organization based at Jack Adams Arena in Detroit, MI.

The DHA has focused on building the character of metro Detroit youth for over 30 years. Its motto, “Where goals are achieved, not just scored” guides the association. When it comes to helping students achieve life goals, the program has been a great success. The numbers say it all. According to USA Today the 2006 the graduation rate in Detroit public schools was worst in the United States at only 21.7%. In stark contrast, all Detroit Hockey Association players graduate from high school and most go on to College!

The DHA is committed to grow by attracting more players and their families to the program. This website provides one method of informing metro Detroit the DHA offers the most affordable hockey in Southeastern Michigan. For example, an entire season in the i-Program (learn to play) only costs $150, including instruction, ice time, skates, sticks, and full equipment!

The annual Hockey in the Hood (HITH) tournament is one of the highlights of the Detroit Hockey season.  Every February since 2005, the DHA has hosted HITH in Detroit.  Hockey in the Hood is a diverse tournament that features inner-city youth hockey teams from around the country.

2008 was a very special year for Hockey in the Hood.  Teams from ten different cities helped Willie O'Ree celebrate the 50th anniversary of his breaking the color barrier in the NHL.  Mr. O'Ree was on hand to present the Willie O'Cup championship trophy to the winning teams.

Please explore the Detroit Hockey website for more information about its history, teams, events, and sponsors.

The Detroit Hockey Association offers a special note of thanks to our sponsors. DHA sponsors help ensure the continued viability and growth of this valuable program.
