Center Ice Fund

The Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association is pleased to announce the launch of the Center Ice Fund.

The Center Ice Fund was created to align qualified Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association players 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 has taken a leadership position in the sport of hockey in Arizona. With the recent addition of the Bobcats program, CAHA continues to strengthen its commitment to community, it’s youth and the game of hockey. The association now encompasses over 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 players and their families.

The Center Ice Fund was conceived to ease this burden and remove financial barriers to participation. Any currently registered CAHA player is eligible to apply for financial assistance; applications will be accepted starting May 1st and must be submitted no later than July15th. 

The Center Ice Fund is 100% supported by private donations. Individuals or businesses interested in contributing to the Center Ice Fund can contact the fund’s director, John Allen, at jallen@coyotesice.com or by calling (602)553-4130.

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