Grosse Pointe Hockey Association

Welcome to the Grosse Pointe Hockey Association

The Grosse Pointe Hockey Association (GPHA) was formed in 1962 and has been a community fixture for providing area youth an opportunity to participate in an exciting, challenging sport while emphasizing camaraderie, sportsmanship and fun.

We are a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization with 1000+ members and 14 teams participating in Travel, House, and American Development Model (ADM) programs.

GPHA provides a competitive environment of learning and good sportsmanship at all skill levels for both boys and girls in the sport of hockey. We are fortunate to have former hockey professionals, college, and amateur players instruct our children in the game and serve as positive role models. Our volunteers are the backbone of the association, and we are thankful for their commitment and dedication to our children and the great sport of hockey!


GPHA is pleased to announce 2014-2015 Fall/Winter Season Registration is officially open !!

Registration Fee

For the 2014-2015 season registration fees have increased to offset rising league costs.

Note, GPHA fees are still the lowest in SE Michigan for an organization of this size. To help reduce the impact of the fee increase, GPHA has implemented an Early Registration period at a reduced cost.

  • Early Registration: April 1st - May 31st, Cost $100*
  • Standard Registration: June 1st - December 31st, Cost $150*
* ADM registration cost is $50


The registration fee is a one-time charge.  If a family registers two or more players, they are only charged the registration fee for two players.  Any additional players from the same family (i.e. three or more) can register for free.  In order for the registration system to recognize that your family is registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time.  On the Review Page, there is a link near the bottom to "Register Another Player" - please click on this link to ensure that all of your family's players are registered within the same order.Failure to do so will result in a forfeiture of your family's discounted rates.





What is the ADM?

American Development Model (ADM) is a new system of training minor hockey players in the United States, developed by USA Hockey with the urging and support of the National Hockey League.  ADM is designed to properly train young players with a "Hockey For Life" motivation. 


How does it work?

ADM is based on a six station rotation.  Players spend 5 minutes at each exercise working on a specific skill.  The rink will then be divided into thirds for larger area 3-3 and 4-4 scrimmages.  This system is active, productive, fun to play and fun to watch.  There will be less down time, more moving, more playing.  Small groups, small ice. Most importantly, more FUN!


Season Info

The ADM season runs from September 6th through late March.  There will be 2-3 skates per week depending on your child’s age and/or skill level.
