About DAHA

Duluth Amateur Hockey Association 

partners with the

Bayfront Blues Festival


The Duluth Amateur Hockey Association (DAHA) will once again partner with the Bayfront Blues Festival this summer, August 8, 9, and 10, 2014. We will need volunteers to help DAHA staff the beer and wine tent. 100% of our profits will be distributed to our programs, rinks, families, and players. We had a great group of volunteers last year, and we had a lot of fun! Please consider volunteering for a shift during the Blues Festival weekend and help us support our young players and neighborhood rinks! Call or email the DAHA office if you have any interest in volunteering.   


Please email us with your request, at the same time please include your phone number, address and shirt size.  We will be updating the schedule daily.
