The Canadian Independent Hockey Federation and AAU Hockey Join Forces!
BARRIE ONTARIO: AAU Hockey is proud to welcome our Canadian members into the AAU family, forming a cross-border alliance of new opportunities. The CIHF website can be found at: www.cihfhockey.com.
The Canadian Independent Hockey Federation (CIHF) brings their league, associations, teams and thousands of members into the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). AAU members may now cooperate to host AAU sanctioned tournaments in both the US and Canada.
CIHF competition levels range from House (HL) through Representative (Rep). For our US readers, Rep level could best be described here in the US as Select and/or (A) level travel.
US and Canadian teams should also be aware that the 6U (Mini-mite classification born in 2007 or later here in the US) are known as Tyke in Canada. Similarly, 8U (Mite born 2005 or later) are known as Novice and 10U (Squirt born 2003 or later) are known as Atom in Canada.
CIHF member communities have offered Safe Play hockey opportunities for over 10 years, although the federation was only recently created in response to their substantial growth throughout Ontario.
The CIHF had already been expanding in Barrie, Burlington, London, and Toronto. However, expansion is now well underway in Bradford, Guelph, Hamilton, Kitchener, Oakville, Orillia, Oxford County (Woodstock, Tillsonburg and Ingersoll), Toronto, Waterloo and York County (Newmarket & Aurora).
Community organizers in other Canadian communities wishing to create their own House level and/or Safe Rep Hockey teams, organizations and/or leagues, should feel free to contact CIHF president Peter Cardo at: (705) 733-9500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
