COVID 19 Information for Players, Coaches and Associations

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

With common sense and a commitment to do our part by following safety guidelines implemented to keep us as safe as possible, we can contribute to helping eliminate COVID-19 by doing these five things:

  • Physical Distance
  • Wash Hands and Practice Safe Hygiene Habits
  • Clean Surfaces and Equipment Between Uses
  • Staying Home When Sick or Experiencing Any Symptoms
  • Properly Wearing a Face Mask.

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.

USA Hockey and The USA Hockey Foundation would appreciate your help in making sure all kids can return to the game they love. Right now, many of our hockey families are experiencing financial hardship.

With a donation of $46 to our Membership Relief Fund, you are ensuring that a child can return to hockey by covering the cost of their USA Hockey membership.

The positive impact that comes from hockey is limitless. Let’s keep the kids playing so they can continue to experience the joy of the game and stay connected to their community.
