Congratulations to Golden State Elite 16AA-2 team and their return from the CCM World Invite in Chicago with the 16U Ribcor Division championship banner and trophy in its luggage. After wins over West Kent (MI) and NC Force Prep (NC), and a loss to Northern Express (IL) in round-robin play, GSE found itself in second place in its bracket as the elimination round began. GSE then got a signature win in the round of 16 against hometown Naperville. Victories over Nashville, Ajax (Ontario), and Little Caesar's Farmington Hills (MI) secured the championship.

CAHA STATEMENT ON ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS
Sep 29, 2019  1:39 PM
Misuse of electronic communication (including social media) is one of the primary offenses in society today, especially among youth. Today’s youth have grown up with technology as one of their primary means of communication; while it is instant and effective, it also desensitizes them to responsible and appropriate communication. Electronic communication empowers and emboldens people to say things they would never say directly to someone, often resulting in language that is insensitive, hurtful, discriminatory and disrespectful. Over time this pattern can escalate into language that is harassing, bullying, threatening or abusive in nature.

CAHA has zero tolerance for violations of the USA Hockey SafeSport policy on Electronic Communications (See "USA Hockey SafeSport Program Handbook" on CAHA Policies Page). Any known or proven violations of this policy could result in disciplinary action, including suspension or termination of the privilege to play hockey within the California affiliate of USA Hockey.

For questions or more information regarding SafeSport refer to the CAHA SafeSport Webpage (CAHA Safesport). Read More >>

An Open Letter to the Out of Control Sports Parent Sitting Next to Me in the Stands
Aug 11, 2019  10:40 AM
Dear Out of Control Sports Parent, You. Yeah, you. The one shouting “Get the rebound!!!” to your kid. The one with the heart palpitating so loudly that you cannot contain yourself. The one yelling and complaining about the coach. The one hollering at the 13-year-old referee. The one angry at my kid for making a mistake. The one hollering at the kids who made a mistake running the scoreboard in a recreational tournament in a meaningless pool play game. Read More >>

Changes to Concussion Legislation in California
Jun 21, 2017  11:06 AM
CAHA is proud to have been a leader within USA Hockey by establishing statewide concussion protocol five years ago. Since that time, the Pacific District has adopted concussion protocol in all its affiliates, and USA Hockey recently added a concussion acknowledgement requirement to its online registration process for all members.

The State of California has also implemented concussion protocol that now expands from the original high school sports legislation to recreational youth sports organizations under Health and Safety Code 124235 (chapter 516). All CAHA member associations – and all CAHA members – need to be aware of these requirements for the upcoming season. Read More >>

For All the Parents
Oct 1, 2017  1:07 PM
Your child's success or lack of success in sports does not indicate what kind of parent you are. But, having an athlete that is coachable, respectful, a great teammate, mentally tough, resilient and tries their best IS a direct reflection of your parenting.
