Lakeland Hockey Association annually recognizes the efforts of its graduating seniors by awarding three different academic and achievement scholarships. Our association has a long history of emphasizing the importance of academic achievement as part of the total development of well a rounded athlete.
Funding of these scholarships is made possible through the annual pre-season player physicals, the used equipment sale, and various other fundraisers that take place throughout the hockey season. Now in our 22nd year, we are pleased to announce that LHA has awarded over $125,250 to 122 well deserving graduating high school seniors.
Scholarship applications are due by February 15 of each year. Applications received after February 15 will not be considered.
