KOHA: Youth Hockey
The Kalamazoo Optimist Hockey Association (KOHA) is a nonprofit, charitable, membership corporation offering an ice hockey program for boys and girls ages 5 to 17 (high school seniors) at all levels of ability…from beginning skaters to high-level competitors.
The program has enjoyed broad-based community support and has grown steadily since its inception. It was a leader in beginning a Learn-to-Skate Program. Each year more than 150 of these first time skaters continue into the KOHA Beginning Hockey program. Others enter formal figure skating instructional programs or continue informal recreational skating.
The KOHA philosophy of assuring enjoyable participation and growth in hockey skills for every boy and girl who wants to play the game has been an important factor in the association’s phenomenal growth.
