THE NMHA WILL BE ADDING A SECOND U18BB TEAM TO OUR REP PROGRAM FOR 2023-2024 SEASON.
Based on the number of passports purchased for the 2023 Fall U18 Evaluations, the NMHA is pleased to announce that we will be moving forward with a fourth team in the U18 age group for the 2023-2024 season.

Based on the passports issued, the fourth entry will be in the ‘BB’ category.

We are also pleased to announce that Todd Robinson has accepted the head coaching position for the second team. Todd is a longtime volunteer and coach in our association, most recently coaching the U16MD team in 2022-2023.
