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 57 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.

This Weekend's Games: GAME TIME CHANGEGS

Friday, January 18: Cornell vs. Harvard @ 7:00pm ... NO CHANGE

Saturday, January 19: Cornell vs. Dartmouth @ 3:00pm ... NOTE THE EARLIER TIME!

Friday night game vs. Harvard remains at 7:00pm. Due to the impending winter storm, please note that the start time of the Dartmouth hockey game on Saturday has been moved to 3:00pm.

For up-to-date Winter Schedule Storm Updates, please follow THIS LINK.

In advance of the Harvard game, fans are reminded that there is a zero-tolerance policy in place regarding bringing fish into Lynah Rink. Additionally, fans are reminded that alcohol consumption and public intoxication in the rink are also prohibited. Throwing any object onto the ice before, during or after the game, or any other disruptive behavior, will not be tolerated and will result in ejection from the rink. Cornell is on notice that any disruption in the game caused by items thrown onto the ice may also result in a delay of game penalty against the Big Red.

Fans should prepare for some delay entering the rink because of package and other inspections at the door. Bags/backpacks and outside food or drink are not permitted inside the rink. There will also be a no re-entry policy in place until after the first period.

We look forward to the weekend... GO BIG RED! - Cornell Athletic Ticketing
