Jr Mavs/Knights Board of Directors

The Mid America Hockey Association (MAHA) is the Missouri based, 501(c)3 that is the parent organization for the Kansas City Jr. Mavs and the Kansas City Knights. Founded in September, 2009, as the governing agency, MAHA programs 18 youth hockey teams serving over 150 young boys and girls. We are  based in Independence, Missouri, and play out of Independence Community Ice/Cable Dahmer Arena. We offer players the opportunity to participate on house, select, and travel teams in divisions from 8U through High School. MAHA's most significant accomplishment is providing youth of the community an opportunity to learn a new sport and compete at a skill appropriate level from beginner to High School Varsity. MAHA is focused on growing the game through inclusive principles, quality programming,  and reducing financial barriers to entry for anyone wanting to play.

The Board of MAHA exists to enable youth hockey to be fun, provide development and resources, give families a voice at the citywide level, provide oversight and accountability, ensure accordance with USA Hockey principles, and grow the game.
