CAHA is CELEBRATING 50 YEARS AS A HOCKEY ASSOCIATION LEADER

1967-2017

 

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 5-14 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.

CAHA 50/50 Volunteer at CBJ Game

 

CAHA has been awarded one night to partner with the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation to run their 50/50 Raffle.  Our night will be on Friday December 23 against the Montreal Canadians.  This year the CAHA Board has decided to use the proceeds from our night to support the House program and specifically help offset the costs incurred by our volunteer coaches that run our House teams.  In addition to the required background check that is reimbursed by CAHA, our coaches pay for a USA Hockey membership, attendance in the required USA Hockey Coaches Education Program classes and completion of the online age specific training modules provided by USA Hockey.  The Board would like to recognize the time and effort of our coaching volunteers by using these proceeds to help offset these expenses.  CAHA received 25% of the amount sold at our game.

We need 35 volunteers from CAHA to staff the event.  Our volunteers need to be at Nationwide Arena by 4:30 on the day of the game for training/instruction from the Foundation on how to execute the event in our volunteer role.  Ticket sales begin as when the gates open to the public at 6:00 and run thru the end of the 2nd period.   Discounted parking is provided by the Foundation at one of the parking lots close to the Arena.

If you haven’t already participated in one of these events it is a lot of fun.  The local hockey community is very tight knit and you will see plenty of familiar faces in the crowd as you sell tickets.  And this is a great way to say thanks to our volunteers who coach our skaters and make CAHA a great organization.

Attached is a link to a Sign Up Genius page we have set up for you to volunteer for this event.  I personally look forward to seeing you on December 23.

Thanks,

WASHING YOUR HOCKEY JERSEYS

RECOMMENDED CARE FOR YOUR HOCKEY JERSEYS!!!

 

  • Wash the hockey jersey inside-out. Turn the jersey inside-out, then place it into the washer. Doing so will help to preserve the jersey's fabric and make it less faded.

 

  • Use color-safe detergent. Washing your hockey jersey is safe detergent negates the fading effects of regular detergent. Purchase color-safe detergent at your local department store.

 

  • Wash the jersey in a gentle washing cycle and in COLD water. Unlike hot water, the cold water will not shrink the jersey. The gentle cycle of the washer allows your jersey to stay intact. In addition, the gentle cycle will keep your jersey looking soft and feeling comfortable.

 

  • LET IT AIR DRY DO NOT PUT IN DRYER. Just like the hot water, the hot air of a dryer will shrink your hockey jersey and loosen the adhesion of the silkscreen LOGOS, numbers and names. To properly dry your hockey jersey, put it on a hanger and hang it up in a dry place. If you have a clothes line, you can hang your jersey up outside. It should take at least 45 minutes to air dry.  If you have to use the dryer, use only the AIR SETTING and NO FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS!!

 

  • Hang up your jersey in a dry place. Once it's done drying, place it in a closet or somewhere that is not filled with moisture. Moisture will make the jersey uncomfortable when you decide to wear it again.

Have a great Hockey Season!!

Q: How does the new system work during a hockey game or an event?

A: The garage will allow access to a limited number of Ice Haus coaches, referee's, players and parents.

 

  • At the entrance, the parker will provide his or her name to the ambassador to be verified by the list of names provided by Chiller staff
  • Once the name is verified, the ambassador will scan a prox card that will dispense a bar code ticket to the parker
  • The ticket provided will give provide 2 hours and 15 minutes ··or" 4 hours and 15 minutes of free parking  as allocated  and approved  by the Chiller staff.
  • Ice Haus parking is based on a first come first served basis. The equipment enhancements allow for a monitored system of Ice Haus patrons specific entrances and exits in order to consistently accommodate the allotment provided.

Q: Why will it cost $50 if you stay longer than the allotted free time of 2 hours and I 5 minutes or 4 hours and  15 minutes?

A: We are encouraging patrons of the Ice Haus to be mindful of the limited space we have and encourage parking space turnover for the next team, players, and coaches. We have also experienced patrons using the free Ice Haus parking accommodation to attend a CBJ game.

 

 

 

Q: What do customers do on a non-event day/night?
A: On days/nights that the Arena does not have a conflicting event, the Ice Haus Patron will pull a ticket from the machine and enter the parking garage.

 
     
   

 

The patron should take the bar coded ticket with them to the front desk of the Ice Haus and they will validate the ticket for up to 2 hours and 15 minutes "or" 4 hours and 15 minutes of free parking  depending on what event or group you are with. Ifyou depart after the free allotted time, you will be charged the daily max of $9.00. As you depart, you will insert your ticket at the exit and the gate will open if you have left within  the allotted free time   provided.

 

 

Q: What if my ticket is not scanning?

A: Push the call assistance button on the top right of the pay in lane machine and a 24/7 command center staff member will be available to assist you while you are being monitored on an IP camera.
