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.
