CCHA Mission

The mission of the CCHA is to promote and maintain an amateur youth hockey association that delivers a positive, safe, fun and competitive youth hockey experience for all youth that reside in the Eastern Carver County School District 112 (“District 112”) boundaries. In that endeavor, the CCHA is dedicated to the development in all of its athletes the highest levels of sportsmanship and level of play that their physical and mental abilities, hard work and dedication can help them achieve. And without the dedication of its members who volunteer their time and abilities, none of the foregoing is attainable. So let us all remember that the volunteers are donating their time and doing their best to reach these goals, and it is only together than we can hope to get there.

CCHA Values

The following values are adopted from USA Hockey as our guiding principles in the conduct of the CCHA:

  1. Sportsmanship: Players need to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. Competitive fair play is a value to learn and practice beyond the strict interpretation of the rules.
  2. Respect and Integrity: Treat all other members of this and any other hockey association, including players, coaches and officials, as you expect to be treated, no matter the circumstances. Integrity is what you choose to do when no one is watching.
  3. Pursuing Excellence in Self, Team and the CCHA: Each member of the association, including players, parents, coaches, and volunteers, should seek to perform at the highest level of one’s ability at all times, which often can mean putting the interests of others before your own.
  4. Teamwork: Learning to work with and support others in a group is the hallmark of teamwork. The use of teamwork is reinforced and rewarded on the ice and throughout one’s life.
  5. Enjoyment: It is critical that the hockey experience be fun, satisfying and rewarding for all those involved in the CCHA, whether it be on or off the ice.

Thank you for being part of and developing the pride and tradition that is the CCHA.
