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.

Winning isn't everything but good competition is an important element of hockey development. Here is a great quote from USA Hockey - American Development Model:
While competition is a big part of youth sport, what competition means to adults and to kids isn’t always the same. At 12U, coaches and parents need to keep kids focused on process over outcomes. It is the effort and striving that teaches the real lessons.

A big thanks to all the parents who make weekends like that happen. This weekend we hope you all are enjoying some of the NHL All Star action here in Columbus.
Just a reminder that hockey schedules do not follow school closing schedules! If the rink is open, then your scheduled activities are still on as planned. Rinks do close when there is a Level 2 Snow emergency. Check your area weather and your rink in case you are uncertain. We encourage you to use your best judgment regarding travel safety for your family as local roads may not yet be cleared.
