The Canadian Sport School Hockey League
In 2009, five like-minded Hockey Canada Accredited Schools came together to launch the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. Their vision was to establish a league designed specifically for elite level student athletes, give these athletes an opportunity to increase their skills on and off the ice, and provide athletes with a high level of competition as well as exposure.
The inaugural 2009-10 season featured five sport schools and eight total teams spread across two divisions. During the 2019-20 season, the CSSHL features 26 Accredited Schools and 80 teams in eight different divisions.
All programs within the CSSHL are sanctioned Hockey Canada Accredited Schools, meeting the regulations of not only Hockey Canada, but their respective provincial branch.
The CSSHL continually strives to be a leader in education based hockey in North America with Hockey Canada registered Sport Schools. The objective of the league is to provide a competitive environment for young student athletes that share similar values of Sportsmanship, Citizenship, Academic Excellence and Hockey Development.
An Experience Like No Other
One of the most memorable parts of playing RHA is the amount of travel each team gets to partake in each year. On average each team travels 2 weekends a month throughout the season which allows players and coaches to experience a level of camaraderie unseen at this age of hockey. Our teams not only get to travel and play top level competition from across North America but get to have numerous life experiences that help them grow outside the game of hockey.
A main takeaway from our program is to best prepare players for the schedule and regiment of hockey players at the next level no matter what league. Outside of regular CSSHL play and travel, each team will get to experience 3 to 4 other tournaments or showcases that will maximize the exposure at every level including WHL, CJHL, NCAA, and more.
The majority of games in the CSSHL take place on weekends, in a showcase format. Programs in each division take turns hosting these Showcase Weekends, which sees multiple teams in one location playing multiple games. This format cuts down on travel time, as well as school days missed. Teams will also play a small number of flex games through the season on non-showcase weekends.
