In 1986, the MWHL became the Minnesota Women’s Hockey Association and their alliance with USA Hockey and Minnesota Hockey was initiated. In the 1990’s the MWHA incorporated and became known as the Minnesota Girls’ and Women’s Hockey Association (MGWHA) when they helped form and organize the leagues for girls’ hockey teams in Minnesota. The current name of Women’s Hockey Association of Minnesota was instituted when Minnesota Hockey took over the role of organizing the girls’ teams within the Districts of Minnesota Hockey and WHAM became the organizer of adult women’s hockey. Currently there are over 1300 players in WHAM, playing in seven divisions. WHAM continues to lead the Nation as the largest single Adult Women's Association in USA H.
