There are more than 5,400 members in Atlanta’s hockey community, and over the years, we’ve been fortunate to be able to provide financial support, scholarships, and assistance to many of our players and their families when they needed it most. This wouldn’t have been possible without contributions from people like you.


Established in 2004, The Atlanta Hockey Foundation (AHF) benefits all current and former Atlanta Amateur Hockey League (AAHL) players and their families in times of need. To reach our goals and promote our cause, the AHF plans events and entertains members to raise the much needed donations to assist to our community.


Your tax-deductible donation will go toward assisting those who need it and helping our foundation become self-sufficient.  Our hope is that you’ll never need the AHF. But in the circumstance that you do, please know we’re here to help.


If you would like to volunteer or sponsor any of our events please contact the Foundation at


As always, thank you for your continued support.
