Champaign-Urbana Youth Hockey Association

Home of the Chiefs

Hello Hockey Players, Parents, and Fans,

Thank you for visiting the homepage of the Champaign-Urbana Chiefs. We offer hockey opportunities to players ages 5-18, with an emphasis on developing our members not only as hockey players, but as young men and women as well. Hockey is a sport that can provide life lessons and lifelong friends, and first and foremost should be enjoyable.

It doesn't matter if a player is participating in Minor Hawks, our House League, or one of our NIHL or CIHL travel teams, the goal for each player and each team as whole is the same: to get better and have fun. As Coaching Director, not only do I enter every season with these goals in mind, but every practice as well.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and I'll see you at the rink!


Nick Fabbrini, Director of Coaching
