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.

Travel Team Tryouts: September 1st - September 8th

  • Summer Stick and Puck Sessions
    Dear CUYHA members,
    We will be offering a low-cost, half-ice stick and puck session every Thursday from June 4 to July 30 (no ice July 2).   It will run from 6-7pm and coaches will be on the ice to supervise the activities (no formal coaching will be provided).  This is a time for the kids to get on the ice and skate, play small pick-up games and have fun.  Full equipment is required.  If skaters were not registered with CUYHA during the 2014-2015 season, they can still attend but they must be registered with USA Hockey and they must sign a waiver before they take the ice.  The cost is $5.00 per session.

    Email if you have any questions.
