The way Youth Hockey should be ...
The Cranford Hockey Club (CHC) is the oldest youth hockey club in New Jersey, providing the best value in the region. We are a non-profit, family-focused organization led by volunteers and coaches (many of whom have played competitively) driven by a love of the game.
We have the right priorities for youth hockey . . and are decidedly not a year-round club. Like USA Hockey and experts in the field citing reams of supporting data, we believe our players should take a break during the off-season.
We believe young players should be introduced to the game in a fun and engaging environment, such as our cross-ice Mite programs implementing USA Hockey’s American Development Model, and grow and develop with an opportunity to play competitively as members of the New Jersey Youth Hockey League. Our Mission is to develop not only great hockey players, but great people of strong character who value teamwork and sportsmanship while reaching their maximum potential in a fun environment.
If you have any questions, please click here and a Board member or CHC Ambassador will be sure to reply . . or feel free to speak with anyone already in our family. Based on our end of season survey results, 98% of respondents were satisfied with their hockey season and over 95% would recommend the Cranford Hockey Club.
