The Wasatch Mountain Amateur Hockey Association (WMAHA) was founded in 1996. Its humble roots sprouted when several founding members began to coach eager young hockey players at the outdoor ice rink where the Utah Olympic Oval now stands. These original volunteers spent much of their precious time, their hard labor and their own money to eventually enclose the outdoor rink to better accommodate the fast growing membership.
In 2002, WMAHA forged a union with the professional American Hockey League (AHL), Utah Grizzlies.
(The Utah Grizzlies are now in the professional ECHL hockey league)
We have come a long way since then and now proudly wear the Jr. Grizzlies emblem. The union between the ECHL Grizzlies and Jr. Grizzlies has had a very positive impact on our program. We support the Utah Grizzlies organization and are thankful to receive support from them.
The WMAHA Grizzlies mission is to provide a safe and challenging environment that promotes skill enhancement, teamwork, and sportsmanship for competitive youth hockey. We embrace the core values of respect for the individual, integrity, loyalty and pursuit of excellence.
The WMAHA Grizzlies strive to accomplish these goals through the hard work of our volunteer coaches and staff. These individuals provide countless hours of planning, training, and giving direction to the players and their parents. We take pride in our players and in the positive relationships they enjoy being part of a team. They are building lifetime experiences and lifetime skills.
