Capital Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) is a local youth hockey organization in Central Ohio that strives to provide a great hockey experience for all youth hockey players – from beginners to experienced players. We offer house, select and travel programs for boys and girls ages 5-14.
Founded in 1967, CAHA’s goal is to offer the proper instruction of ice hockey fundamentals, as well as to create an environment for the young athletes to continue developing athletic skills. As a non-profit organization, CAHA is a member association of, and is governed by, the rules and regulations of USA Hockey and MidAm Hockey. CAHA offers programs for all levels of hockey instruction from the recreational to highly competitive players.
Practices for our house programs are mostly held at Chiller North and/or Chiller Ice Works. Travel and select programs also practice at the Columbus Fairgrounds.
For experienced/travel players – please see our Travel Hockey page and/or CAHA Northstars Select page.
For current CAHA members – schedule information is located under the “All Teams Pages” tab above.
House registration for the 2019-2020 season will be available Summer 2019.
The OSU players and coaches are looking forward to working with each player in a small group setting to develop all of your hockey skills. We will have a great teacher to student ratio on the ice so each camper receives plenty of one on one attention! We will separate the group depending on age/skill level so each camper will be comfortable in their learning group. Each day will have a separate skill dedicated to it so the players can get the most out of each session.
Power skating, edge work, balance, stride technique, quick feet
Puck skills, stick handling, deception, under handling, “hiding the puck”
Passing, techinque, forehand & backhand, passing to space, give & go

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.
