Center Ice Fund


The Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association Chandler is pleased to announce the launch of the Center Ice Fund for the 2021 - 2022 season.

The Center Ice Fund was created to align qualified Coyotes Amateur Hockey Association Chandler participants with financial aid and other resources to eliminate barriers to participation and encourage personal development through competition, teamwork and athletic achievement.

CAHA Chandler has remained a leader in the sport of hockey in the state of Arizona. With the Coyotes Development Program and the Arizona Bobcats, CAHA Chandler now encompass 12 competitive traveling teams and nearly 24 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 participants and their families.

The Center Ice Fund was conceived to ease this burden and remove financial barriers to participation. Any currently registered CAHA Chandler player is eligible to apply for financial assistance.  Applications will be accepted beginning June 1st 2021 and must be submitted no later than June 15th, 2021. Applications and program details can be found on  www.azbobcats.org website.

The Center Ice Fund is 100% supported by private donations. Individuals or businesses interested in contributing to the Center Ice Fund can email us at centericefund@coyotesice.com for more details and information as to how to get involved. All donations made through the Center Ice Fund are tax deductible and tax donation acknowledgement will be given upon receipt.

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