Chiller Camps, Clinics & Pond Hockey

Spring Hockey Options offered by the Chiller

We encourage everyone to get out and enjoy other sports in the off season, but for those wanting to work on their hockey skills and stay on the ice, the Chiller offers a variety of great spring and summer options.  

Please click the links below for specific information and how to register.  

Just to clarify, Pond Hockey is a Chiller sponsored and run short season of games for fun and no pressure.  EYHA as an association is not involved in forming or overseeing the teams.  It is an opportunity for players to take the ice once a week and work on game play, try new skills, score some goals and have fun with friends!  If interested talk to your coach and see if they or another coach is putting a team together.
