Welcome to the new and improved website of the Chippewa Youth Hockey Association (CYHA), home of the Chippewa Thunder! Our mission is to provide the youth of Chippewa County with quality programs for ice skating related activities. We support teamwork and cooperation through mutual respect, sharing of skills, knowledge and responsibilities.

If you have a child between the ages of 4 and 8, or have friends with kids this age who are interested in trying out hockey, then G.O.A.L. is the program for you!  This two weekend program gives your child an opportunity to learn how to skate and play hockey!  The cost is FREE.  A $25.00 deposit is required if equipment rental is needed, which will be promptly given back once equipment is returned.

We greatly appreciate your gift!

What do you do if you have to be away from CYHA and your skater is playing in a Game?  Do the Grandparents live in a location which precludes them from attending CYHA in person to see your skater's games or competitions?  Do you want to see what is going on during practices and other matters at the CYHA rink while you are away?
Well, we now have the answers, Live Barn! 
For the cost of a roll of tape and a skate sharpening you’ll be able to watch games/practices from Chippewa Falls and any other LiveBarn rink - Live & On Demand.  Members can share great moments to social media/email, and can also submit highlights to be considered for LiveBarn’s Plays of the Week.

Sani Sport Solutions

The Sani Sport cleansing process is a simple one, the entirety of which takes six-teen minutes. After placing the gear into the machine, ozone and air circulate throughout the chamber. This is then followed by an automated spray which helps protect the equipment and eliminate any residual ozone left behind. No water or chemicals are contained in the treatment. Our process removes harmful bacteria and odors while not compromising the quality of the sporting equipment. The bacteria and odors caused by perspiration are significantly reduced from the sports gear with the 16 minute Sani Sport process.


Cost is $35 per set of gear and $ 50 for Goalie gear.
