Keep A Kid In Hockey

As some of you may be aware, CIHA has a scholarship program that helps families in need help pay for their child to play hockey. We understand that situations arise that unfortunately may make a family choose between everyday necessities and keeping their child playing a sport they love, all while learning great life lessons.

As a 501(c)3, CIHA can accept a tax deductible donation from anyone wishing to donate to a new program that will supplement our scholarship program. We are calling it "Keep A Kid In Hockey". This can be an anonymous donation, if you wish, and can be for any amount, or be specified toward something in particular.

If you'd like to "sponsor" a mite, for example, you can donate the amount to cover that cost. If you'd like to sponsor a player whose family you know may be going through a difficult time, you can do that as well. Lastly, you can donate a specific dollar amount that will supplement our current scholarship program, which works with a specified budget and looks at each situation independently.

Thank you for your consideration and help "Keep A Kid In Hockey" if you can!

Attention Coaches!

Attention Coaches!

The Hockey Season is right around the corner and so is the need for coaches. 

Please take a few moments to register with USA hockey and complete our coaches application on the CIHA website. 

Deadline for Head & Assistant  coaching applications are due August 16th, with interviews taking place the following week. 

USA Hockey has updated a few new rules. 

  1. You will not be able to add a Coach to a Youth/Girls/HS Roster until the required Age-Specific Coaching Module has been completed. So please finish this early so our association has no coaches sitting out. 
  2. At the June MN Hockey Board meeting they also adopted new requirements for Coaches concussion training. The concussion training will be required every season.
  3. You will not be able to add Team Staff (Coach or Manager) to a Youth/Girls/HS Roster until their SafeSport training has been completed.
  4. The Consent to Treat form is no longer a required form. It has been removed from the Registry

Your Player Have Great Grades

S.K.A.T.E. is an academic recognition program designed to encourage youth hockey players to strive for excellence in the 
classroom.  As competitors, young players set goals for themselves on the ice and in the classroom. Like the cheers they hear for goals, assists and good hustle, they respond positively to recognition and reward for their performances in the classroom.

 Student athletes must have a Grade Point Average (or equivalent) of 3.0 or above to qualify.
 Fill out this form and return with a copy of student’s latest report card by February 27, 2017  to Tara Hallberg 1006 Wentlock Ct NW Isanti 55040, or put in Secretary’s box in Arena office or email to
Player recognition will be at North Isanti Baptist Church on March 27.

All School age CIHA registered players are eligible to participate.   Report cards from end of 1st Trimester or midterm grades for 2nd tri will be accepted.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Coaches Game

Thank you to ALL for supporting the 5th Annual Coaches Game.  The 2016 event was a HUGE success!!!

We were able to gather nearly 250 lbs of food


Generated just over $1900.00 for the Food Shelf...YES $1,900.00

We had 30 Coaches


Over 200 spectators


We essentially had 40% increase over last year.  All of this would not be possible if it were not for the hard work of Alicia Overby, Jamie Sherman and Courtney Pope.  They organized the bake sale, chuck a puck, sign making, raffled gifts, door prizes, hot dog eating competition, raffle baskets and were the glue holding the entire event together.  A special thanks to Mike Heiderscheid for announcing, music, and clock, Larry "Boom Boom" Bacon and Mark "Mad Dog" Radeke for reffing, Greg Jarvela for scheduling, Sarah Reinhart for working the ticket box, and the CIHA Board as well as the Isanti Arena for supporting the entire event.  I also would like to point out that the Raffle Baskets were a HUGE success this year.  To ALL the teams that put a basket together, a heart felt ....THANK YOU!

I BIG thank you to all the COACHES who came out and supported the cause.  With out the coaches there is no show, no fundraising, no event.  I cant thank you enough for coming out and sacrificing your time (and body in some cases) for the betterment of our community during the holiday season.  I hope you all feel better about dessert during the holidays, knowing you just got your workout in!

A special thanks to the Cambridge Isanti High School boys and girls hockey coaches, who again showed tremendous support by attending the event, participating, and allowing us to use their jerseys.  Way to go guys!  Cambridge-Isanti Youth Hockey is honored to have your continued support.

To ALL.... No doubt it is a very busy time of year for all of us, and your attendance, participation, and support of this event is greatly appreciated.  Our loyal hockey community should be proud of our accomplishments and relish in the holiday cheer of helping those in need.  I feel blessed and extremely proud to be a member of such a wonderful community.

Thank you ALL!

and Happy Holidays
