If you are new to WAHA and looking to register for a session but unsure of what league to register for, make sure to attend a few drop in sessions offered by both the Stumptown Ice Den and Woodland Ice Center. Drop ins are typically scheduled by playing ability (AB, CDE, etc) and are a great way to find out where your skill level is relative to WAHA’s sessions and leagues.
