CAHA Strategy Plan

CAHA Strategy Plan Update

The CAHA Board has received feedback from Associations on the Proposed Strategy Plan to grow hockey in the Carolinas. The Strategy Committee is currently going back to the Associations to gain their input and feedback to the specific Action Steps that have been developed to implement the plan. We are currently receiving this feedback and we will then incorporate this feedback into the plan. Nothing is set in stone and we want Association feedback to make the plan better. For parents interested in providing feedback, you can do this via your Association (they represent you) or contact one of the Strategy Committee members directly. This is a DRAFT plan and is proposed to the Associations for their input and feedback and nothing has been decided and nothing will be decided without this important input. Please let any of the Strategy Committee members know if you have any questions or feel free to contact anyone on the CAHA Board.

CAHA Strategy Committee - Chad Boerst, Brian Haaland, Brad Hoffman, Matt Hurley, Brian Mehm, Ed Morris

During the 2018 and 2019 CAHA Annual Meetings, CAHA held round table discussions to discuss topics that were identified as being important to our Associations. These included the need for a longer term strategic plan to plan for the growth and success of our game. Since this time, CAHA has been working on identifying issues that need to be addressed in order to grow the sport of hockey in the Carolinas. A Strategy Committee was formed based on feedback from these Annual Meetings. The Board believes that CAHA should lead change to maximize the growth of hockey in the Carolinas and that taking steps to do this is right thing to do for the sport and for our players, families, coaches, and officials and we want to provide the best experience possible so all players PLAY HOCKEY FOR LIFE.

The Strategy Committee’s purpose is to develop a vision and plan to implement the CAHA stated purpose in the By-Laws. The Board believes that we should lead change and create a plan and implement a strategy that will achieve our vision to grow hockey in the Carolinas. We want to partner with all Associations to implement positive change and address what CAHA should look like in the future and develop strategies and tactics to achieve that vision. This plan is currently in the DRAFT phase and we are meeting with all of our Associations to get input, ideas, suggestions, and support for the plan. Our intent is to implement the plan beginning in the 2020-2021 season.

If any CAHA member would like to provide input or ideas, please contact Brad Hoffman at
