Champaign-Urbana Youth Hockey Association (CUYHA)
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.

  • Mite Tournament Canceled

    Due to a misunderstanding of the AHAI rules for full ice Mite play in 2014, we have canceled the 2014 Mite tournament.  There can be no full ice Mite play before December 1st.    We are very sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

  • Commitment to 12U house league
    In light of the registration numbers at tryouts and the interest expressed to us by multiple families, the CUYHA board has decided to commit to offering a 12U house league for the 2014-2015 season.  We will offer this program even if we do not reach the 25 skater minimum we had previously required.  We hope this helps some families in their decision making process.
