For the past 11 years as President of MAWHA Donna Guariglia dedicated her time and efforts to the growth of girls hockey. Under Donna's leadership the MAWHA League has grown to be one of the largest organized girls hockey leagues in USA Hockey. Donna has submitted her resignation to the MAHWA Board of Directors and the board has accepted her resignation.
With the MAWHA Presidency being vacated mid term; the By-Laws provide for the Executive Vice President to assume the responsibilities of President for the remainder of the term. At this time Paul Bardell will assume the responsibilities of MAWHA President for the remainder of the current term.
The MAWHA Board of Directors would like to thank Donna for her years of leadership and support in the MAWHA League. Donna will continue to work on the USA Hockey Board of Directors serving as the Treasurer and will still be very much involve with girls/womens hockey within USA Hockey and the Atlantic District.

In an effort to keep the Member's Contact information accurate and up to date, we request an updated club contact sheet at each Annual Membership meeting. This year we did not receive a sheet from several clubs and to help facilitate the collection of Club Contact we have integrated the Club Contact Information gathering on the MAWHA website.
Please take a few minutes to provide us the Club Contact information that is requested (President, Treasurer, Director/Ace Coordinator, and Referee Assigner) This information will allow the MAWHA information to be properly distributed with a current contact information.
