CAHA is the premier Central Ohio Youth Hockey Organization and has been active since 1967. The central theme of CAHA is to provide the proper instruction of ice hockey fundamentals for boys and girls who range in age from 5-18 years old, as well as to provide an environment for the young athletes to continue developing athletic skills. A non-profit organization governed by the rules and regulations of USA Hockey, CAHA offers three levels of hockey instruction--the Initiation League, the House League, and the Travel League.

We are pleased to announce the 2015-2016 AA Columbus Capitals Head Coaches!!

We will be announcing the 2003 and 2004 “A” Head Coaches once the on ice try-out process has begun. We will also be able to determine if the mixed birth year bantam (2001-2002) will be formed and if it is that head coach will also be named.
No assistant coaches will be named until the rosters have been created and those players have paid their deposit. New beginning this season: (1) The head coach will work with the Hockey Director/Committee to select assistant coaches from the registered Travel coaching candidates. (2) There will be a MAXIMUM of 4 persons permitted (rostered) on the bench and/or penalty box; the Head Coach, 2 asst/bench coaches and either an asst/coach or an approved parent which will operate the penalty box during games. (3) Team Managers/Treasurers also need to be approved through a similar process as used for the coaches, but utilizing input from the CAHA Scheduler and Treasurer. Once they are approved as manager/treasurer they will need to be registered as volunteers with USA Hockey (obtaining a new USA number).
More information regarding background screenings, SafeSport, skills coaches, team forms etc., will be sent out as the process moves forward.
Please do not hesitate to contact the
with any Questions.
