Welcome to the Grand Traverse Hockey Association, home of the Traverse City North Stars. We are a 501c3 designated non-profit, incorporated in December 1970.
The purpose of GTHA is to encourage the playing of ice hockey by youth of the Grand Traverse Area; to foster the teaching of hockey skills; to foster fair play and sportsmanship; and to provide Grand Traverse area youth with the opportunity to play organized, sanctioned competitive ice hockey.
Click here for details and the registration information! See you Sunday, October 2nd at 3PM for the fitting!
Attention coaches/managers/volunteers: You must register with GTHA in order to be added to a team's roster. You will first register with USA Hockey, and then with GTHA. Those links are below. Thanks for your assistance.
Coaches are the lifeblood of hockey. You play a critical role in our children's development, and without you, our kids couldn't play. If you are interested in becoming a coach in the GTHA, please fill out the coaches application using the following link:

Per USA Hockey and MAHA: Youth hockey player cell phones are not allowed in any locker room. With most kids having cell phones with cameras, there is a risk of inappropriate photos being taken and possibly being posted on the web. Hopefully, by keeping the phones out of the locker rooms, this can be avoided.
GTHA is taking this a step further and added to the policy by specifically saying any device capable of taking pictures or video are prohibited from the locker rooms.
