About GIHA

The Gorham Ice Hockey Association's mission is to provide an opportunity for Gorham middle school and high school boys and girls to participate in competitive ice hockey.

GIHA is a 501(c) 3 non-profit, volunteer organization that was founded in 1989 with the intent of offering an organized ice hockey program for the middle school students in the Town of Gorham.  In 1991, the program was expanded to include a high school boys team, and in 1994, boys ice hockey became a varsity sport.  In 2000, a high school girls ice hockey club team was added as well.

GIHA provides financial assistance, organization, logistics, fundraising, and volunteers, as necessary, to provide a quality school hockey experience for our student-athletes.  The majority of our expenses, primarily ice time, are paid for through fundraising and player fees, while some other expenses, such as transportation, coaches, referees, and uniforms, are provided by the Gorham High School Athletic Department.

GIHA's goal is to foster enthusiasm and support for ice hockey, through the participation of student-athletes at all levels.  We encourage school attendance, dedication to academic excellence, and a commitment to work hard at our sport.  We value and honor fair play, good sportsmanship, respect for others, and pride in ourselves, our peers, and our Gorham athletic community.
