Welcome!

The Cornell Hockey Association is a community and University organization established in 1961 as the Ithaca Hockey Boosters Association to promote and assist ice hockey at all levels in the greater Ithaca area. Now 56 years later, the CHA continues that mission supporting the activities of the Men's Hockey Program at Cornell University.

This site is written by volunteers with basic skills and is updated as we learn by trying. If you are a Web-programmer or self-trained, computer geek with time on your hands and a fondness for Cornell Hockey, help us out! Contact us and help this site improve.
