Membership in the MGHCA is obtained by registering with the MSHSCA through their registration link which is provided below. This is the only method for becoming a member of the girls hockey coaches association. This is a change from past years. This change gives all coaches who become members to receive year round liability insurance coverage that includes working camps and clinics during the off-season.
PLEASE NOTE: Coaches must join the MSHSCA to be eligible for post-season recognition (i.e. Head or Assistant Section and State coach of the year). Also, the Head Coach must be a member for their players/team to be eligible for post season awards administered by the MGHCA including All-State, Individual All-State Academic, Section and State Team Academic honors, Ms. Hockey and Senior Goalie awards.
