Ice Hockey

The Ark-La-Tex Amateur Hockey Association (ALTAHA) is a non-profit, all volunteer, corporation formed to promote the sport of hockey among the youth of the Ark-La-Tex and it's surrounding areas. The hockey program began in 1997, when The Shreveport Mudbugs came to town to play in the WPHL. The association has taken on various names and forms over the years until 2012, the name was changed to the Ark-La-Tex Amateur Hockey Association (ALTAHA) to more accurately represent the diversity of our membership.

The program was housed at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City until 2015 when a group of investors brought the Mudbugs back to Shreveport in the form of a NAHL franchise that would play at George’s Pond at Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport.

ALTAHA has over 180 players with ages ranging from 4 to over 63. Our membership routinely comes from as far as 2 hours away to take part in our hockey programs. Hockey is growing within the South and Shreveport plans to continue in a leadership role.

  • Develop one of the best hockey programs in the Southern United States.
  • Manage programs that are highly competitive but very affordable.
  • Provide opportunities for the development of Junior and NCAA Collegiate level players from within the youth program.
  • Maintain an active adult recreational program.

ALTAHA is a member of USA HOCKEY and its affiliate Southern Amateur Hockey Association. This qualifies our players to participate in USA Hockey programs such as select hockey camps, and district, and regional playoffs.
