CAHA is CELEBRATING 50 YEARS AS A HOCKEY ASSOCIATION LEADER
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.

Central Ohio Girls Hockey is hosting a clinic for 5-15 year old girls Sunday, December 11th at Taft Coliseum. Clinic Times start at 11:45 am to 1:15 pm. Please plan on arriving 30 to 45 minutes in advance to register and get dressed. This 90 minute clinic includes 45 minutes of ADM style skills practice, followed by 40 minutes of scrimmages. This event is open to all skill levels and full gear is required.
New to hockey? No problem! Contact us in advance, and we will do our best to provide gear for this event.
Thanks to a coalition of local hockey organizations, we were able to make the cost of this valuable clinic very affordable. There is an ice fee of $10 cash to be paid at check-in. Registration is required. Follow the link below to register. If you have any questions please contact Natalie Darr at email@example.com
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.
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.
Our camps develop Defenseman to have a deeper understanding of the game and their position so they can play with confidence as well as contribute to the teams success. Let us help you take your game to the next level!
