Concussion is an all too frequent event in contact sports like hockey. Important background information for coaches and parents is summarized here in an informative guide from the CDC.
Chatham Hockey Club 2014-15 Registration
Please pre-register here for next season for CHC teams. Pre-registration is imperative as it allows us to form the correct number of teams and book appropriate ice. In the event player numbers need to be limited preference will be given to those families that pre-register first.
CHC will have a new jersey this season. It will be the 'throwback' jersey worn by the High School at their game on the Winter Classic ice at Yankee Stadium. You must pre-register by July 3rd so your player has a jersey.
Chatham Hockey Club Teams 2014-15
Time to sign up for Chatham Hockey! We have opened up official registration for the 2014/2015 Season.

Please note all teams, including Middle School teams, will sign up through the website this year.
You may signup for Mites through PeeWee as a Full (practices and games) or Travel (games only) player. Travel players must be rostered on and practicing with another team during the season.
Mennen teams are formed based on numbers. If we need to limit participants preference is given first to Full players and then the order in which you sign up.
Players in the 5th through 8th grade will have an assessment skate in September. Based on the assessment your player will be placed primarily on one of the three teams - PW, 2003s, or CMS-Aspen. As during last season we expect to see movement among the rosters on these teams game to game.
As the season approaches more information will be sent to you by coaches or managers for these teams.
Please pre-register NOW so your new jersey will be ordered and you will be on the contact list for further information.
