The Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association is pleased to announce the launch of the Center Ice Fund for the 2020-21 season.

The Center Ice Fund was created to align qualified Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association participants with financial aid and other resources to eliminate barriers to participation and encourage personal development through competition, teamwork and athletic achievement.

For close to twenty years, CAHA and CAHA Chandler have remained the leader in the sport of hockey in the state of Arizona. With the Coyotes Development Program, Jr Coyotes, and the Arizona Bobcats, CAHA and CAHA Chandler now encompass thirty competitive traveling teams and nearly fifty house developmental teams. While we are very proud of the association’s growth and our competitive standing on a regional and national level, we also recognize that maintaining a program of this caliber requires significant financial commitment from our participants and their families.

The Center Ice Fund was conceived to ease this burden and remove financial barriers to participation. Any currently registered CAHA/CAHA Chandler player is eligible to apply for financial assistance.  Applications will be accepted beginning July 25th, 2020 and must be submitted no later than August 10th, 2020

The Center Ice Fund is 100% supported by private donations. Individuals or businesses interested in contributing to the Center Ice Fund can email us at for more details and information as to how to get involved.  All donations made through the Center Ice Fund are tax deductible and tax donation acknowledgement will be given upon receipt.

As always, thank you for your continued support of CAHA and youth hockey in Arizona!


The Center Ice Fund aligns qualified Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association participants with financial aid and other resources to eliminate barriers to participation and encourage personal development through competition, teamwork and athletic achievement.


 Funds awarded, shall generally be limited to 50% or less of association fees per recipient per year.
