Home of the Chiefs

Thanks for visiting the online home of the CUYHA Chiefs.  On this site, you will find general information about our youth hockey programs.  Please explore the site and click on the Contact Us link if you have additional questions.
CUYHA offers many ways for boys & girls to get into the great game of ice hockey:

Minor Hawks - A Chicago Blackhawks-sponsored program for kids ages 5-8 that introduces kids to skating, ice hockey equipment, and basic skills instruction.

House League - geared towards kids ages 5-12 (8U and 12U) who have some confidence skating, but still need skill development before playing competitive hockey.

Travel teams - Teams at all age levels that have regular practices (2-3/week) and who enjoy an enhanced team atmosphere.  Skaters test their skill development through game play against other youth hockey organizations in Illinois and surrounding regions.

  • CUYHA Spring Midget Team
    Hello Hockey Parents,

    Unfortunately, I'm writing today with bad news.  We currently have 8 skaters and two goaltenders registered, and it is almost a certainty at this point that we will not reach our minimum number of skaters of 14.  While this is certainly disappointing, it does not discourage me from believing that we will have the numbers to not only field a Midget team this fall, but that we will have a competitive one. 

    There will be ice time opportunities available for Midget skaters here in Champaign starting in May through Illini Hockey, and I plan to spend time the remainder of this spring and summer looking for potential Midget players to help our organization. 

    Thank you for registering your skater with us this spring, and I will keep everyone posted on the status of our Midget program for the fall.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
