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.

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!!
