Hockey Operations

The Operation's Committee serves as a support committee to the Operation's Manager in all matters which pertain to the on-ice aspect of MAHA. This includes placements, coaches, ice scheduling, team assignments, etc. The committee is broken down into three separate layers of involvement:

All MAHA Coaches

  2. At Large members - Serve as a second tier "think tank" to be utilized at the Steering Committee's disposal, and hold no voting power.
  3. Coaches - All MAHA coaches receive an automatic membership on the Operation's Committee, to be utilized at the Steering Committee's discretion and holds no voting power.

Why was the position created? Though MAHA is built on the base of its volunteers, MAHA has grown both in size and in need to where certain volunteer aspects of MAHA were getting to be to large. By combining the major aspects of MAHA into one position we are able to not only keep the organizational aspect of MAHA efficient, but we are able to utilize the position to constantly look at ways to update and better our association in all aspects. With the need for more ice time in Mankato, it is very beneficial to have a position created where community ties can be created and constant attention can be given to the needs of MAHA's participants.
