AMHA honours teams, players from 2023-24 travel season

Updated: Apr 26


The Amherstburg Minor Hockey Association (AMHA) conducted its year-end banquets for travel players this past weekend.


AMHA travel convenor Josh Leeman said they are held mini-banquets with each team having its own banquet from April 20-22 at the Libro Centre. Meals were provided for all teams with their own awards presented.


Leeman said results on the ice weren’t as strong competitively as they would have wanted for AMHA travel teams but he said they have added more travel teams this season.


Development and travel teams were added by the AMHA this year in U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, two in U15 and U18.


“It’s double of what we had the previous year,” he said of the amount of travel teams.


With the addition of “A” level teams in Amherstburg and the fact there are more non-parent coaches they now have access to have contributed to the growth of travel teams locally. The growth of the town has also assisted, Leeman believes.
