The Maritime Indian Hockey Association was formed over fifteen years ago through the work of many volunteer committees and their tournmanent co-ordinators coming together for the benefit of organized hockey in our native communities. The MIHA was set up to provide a safe and harmonious hockey experience for all players and in the process improving the quality of play for both players, coaches and fans.
Over the years, the MIHA has been recognized as the governing body with respect to
rules, regulations and the management of both tournaments and native leagues that have
been in existence over the past number of years. This gathering of representatives
from various communities has been comprising the Board of Directors Committee of the MIHA
and has been running at the grassroots community level for years. Because of this
MIHA Committee, strong input has been received and continues to be very important from all
Years ago, the native hockey scene saw many, many talented players and coaches alike competing for coveted championship trophies and tournaments including the Maritime Indian Hockey Championships (currently not in progress), the Maritime Indian Junior Hockey Championships (which have been held for years in both Brookfield & Truro, NS) and tournaments such as the Wally Bernard Memorial Tournament, held each year in Sydney. As well, each of the communities that had stronger teams such as Eskasoni, Indianbrook, Millbrook and Waycobah have hosted their own tournaments on an annual basis.
Currently, there are approximately eight (8) native hockey tournaments each year ranging from the PeeWee level to Oldtimers, depending on the host of the tournament. It is our hope that through the MIHA, the development for hockey in various levels will increase and that communities will begin to have their own minor hockey systems developing for both boys and girls in the near future. We will be posting more information on the website and will have a downloaded version of the MIHA Rules & Regulations for your use.
