The Atlanta Mad Hatters Travel Hockey Program will provide youth hockey players with the opportunity to further develop their hockey and life skills to teach them to be a complete player on and off the ice. Provide a safe and fun atmosphere for youth hockey players, allowing them to push themselves outside of their comfort zone to reach new levels of development.

The Mad Hatter's association provides a detail oriented coaching staff, committed to player development with a heavy emphasis on skill based instruction to give all players the tools to execute high level hockey systems and strategies.

Our Atlanta Madhatters coaching staff understand and teach
not only the importance of individual skill development but also
team-building skills such as how to respect one another,
unselfish behavior, decision making, the importance of
communication and not cutting corners. Most of all we want to
help our players develop long-lasting friendships and have fun in
a safe and nurturing environment.

We have created a system and invested in resources for long

professional coaching staff, the organization has invested
resources geared toward total player development - from the
classroom, to the gym, to individualized on-ice training.
