    Proud Members of the Chicago United Hockey League

    Responding to the market demands and a desire to offer a full-ice Mite hockey experience for its membership, twenty Chicago area clubs have formed a new youth hockey league that will debut this fall. The Chicago United Hockey League (CUHL) will offer a full season of full-ice hockey beginning in September and concluding with round robin playoffs in March. The league will be affiliated with the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) and AAU Hockey Illinois.
    "For the last several years, there has been a growing desire of many in the hockey community to offer a full ice Mite season and, importantly, to allow local clubs to make the decisions that impact their memberships," said Jim Hanlon, who will serve as President of the new league. "We have many in our group who have dedicated their coaching careers to Mite hockey. They understand what is best for the development of Mites--both in terms of their skills and their love of the game--because they work with this age group in their communities on a daily basis. They understand what the parents, our paying customers, desire for their financial commitment."
    The league will offer three levels of travel hockey: AA, A1, and A2. These teams will play a full season of 24 games beginning in late September and continuing through to the end of February. "Hockey is a winter sport. We intend to play hockey all the way through February," added Hanlon. The House Division will offer a 15-game season beginning slightly later in October. All League play will conclude with a round robin playoff format.
