Scholarship Program Changes Effective IMMEDIATELY!


The CYHA membership and Board of Directors has been working diligently in recent years to create and fund a scholarship account for use to help kids in our programs. We have always offered scholarships with a maximum amount of $675, but we are happy to announce, that number is being increased for some of our programs. Your hard work has allowed the scholarship account to grow, and because of that growth, as an Association, we are able to create different scholarships for each of our 3 programs. If you request a scholarship, you will have to COMPLETELY fill out the appropriate application for the program your child participates in. If you don’t fill it out completely, or don’t furnish the documents that are asked for, or don’t get it in on time, we will not be able to look at it for consideration. Please don’t put us in a position of having to reject your application because you didn’t provide what we ask for.

Because of these changes, we have extended the application deadline until August 18, 2017. The Board will meet in the following week to review all applications that have been submitted completely and properly, and applicants will be notified as quickly as possible of the decisions made.

Now the fun part, the maximum amount remains the same for the House Program ($675). The House/Rec Travel Program maximum awarded amount has been increased to $1,000 and the maximum amount awarded for the Full Travel Program has been increased to $1,500. For these two programs, the maximum awarded amount represents 56% of the program fees that could potentially be covered if the full amount is awarded.

As always, the Board reviews the circumstance of every application and could award anything from zero to the maximum amount and anything in between, based on the request and the family’s circumstances.

We are excited to offer this program, and hope that if helps some of our children remain on the ice when they otherwise may not have been able to. We will continue to count on all of you to work hard to keep the scholarship fund capitalized so we can continue to offer free checking clinics, house program skills clinics and underwrite other programs like the upcoming 3 on 3 Tournament and the Hockey Skills Series starting in the fall. It is our goal to continue to add benefits for our members to our programs, and your hard work has allowed us to get started on this path. For that, we thank you!
