Registration for Chatham Youth Hockey’s 2016/2017 Season is now open on our website. CYH programs for 2016/17 will offer developmental programs for Mini-mite (2010 and younger) as well as for older players new to hockey (birth years 2006-2009). Additionally, CYH will again play competitive games in the MCYHL for Mites & Squirts, and in the Aspen Middle School League for Middle School (6th, 7th, 8th Grade) players. Chatham Hockey registration options for this year are as follows:
MCYHL Games Only (Mite & Squirt): CYH rosters Mite & Squirt teams in the Morris County Youth Hockey League at Mennen Arena which play 1 game most weekends for 18 weeks followed by a season-end Jamboree for Mites and playoffs for Squirts (if qualified). To register to play games only in the MCYHL, your player must be registered, practicing and playing with a travel hockey club in the area.
Learn-to-Play Hockey / Mini-mite: This option is for 2010 birth year and younger skaters who have previously learned to ice skate but typically have 1 year or less of experience playing hockey. We will be partnering with the Union Sports Arena Mite Development League for this option. This option will typically involve 2 ice slots per week, with at least one skate on the weekend involving cross-ice games organized by the Union rink. The season will run from early October to early March.
CHC House Games & Practices for Mites & Squirts: This option is for birth year skaters 2006-2009 who have previously learned to ice skate but typically have 1 year or less of experience playing hockey. Our older CYH players will share practice time with our Mini-Mite players but play competitive games on the MCYHL team for their age level. This option will typically involve 1-2 ice slots per week plus MCYHL games.
Middle School Teams: Information on middle school teams will follow at the beginning of the school year.
Volunteers and Coaches Needed: When registering, please consider also volunteering as a Birth Year Parent Coordinator. Active parent participation is a foundation of Chatham Youth Hockey. Additionally, while we have a core group of coaches lined up for the different teams for the coming season, if you have experience on the ice and an interest in coaching, we can always use help and can tailor commitments based on the time you have available. USA Hockey registration and coaching certification is required, but can be completed by 12/31/2016. If you are willing to volunteer or coach, please contact us at
