COVID 19 Information for Players, Coaches and Associations

As we prepare for the 2020-2021 season, important updates from CAHA and USA Hockey will be posted on this webpage for North Carolina and South Carolina members.

Remember we can contribute to helping eliminate COVID-19 by doing these four things:

  • Physical Distance
  • Wash Hands and Practice Safe Hygiene Habits
  • Clean Surfaces and Equipment Between Uses
  • Staying Home When Sick or Experiencing Any Symptoms

The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, CAHA will continue to provide updates and resources as more information develops.
