Welcome to the sport of hockey!

New to Hockey?

Welcome to the fastest game on ice!

Hockey is thrilling to play and an excellent way to help your child meet new friends and develop skills that will help them, not only on the ice, but in their daily life!

Scroll down for resources and information that will help you quickly become acquainted with the Canton Victory Hockey Association and the greatest game on earth-  HOCKEY! 

We would love to have you join our hockey family, please reach out to with any questions!

Canton Victory Honda Association (CVHA) is proud to serve Canton and our surrounding communities with our Tier 2 and Tier 3 teams; From 6U Minimites to 18U Prep and everything in between!  We welcome you, whether you are brand new to the sport or at the top of your game, we have a place in our hockey family for you.


The pages on this website have been created to help parents learn more about the basics of hockey and help you to find out where you and your child can flourish in our association. 

The links on the following pages will give you an idea of the types of programs available at CVHA, the ages and skill level for those programs, about the necessary equipment as well as information about the game we love so much. 


All hockey program participants must wear full hockey equipment  


Write the name of your child on a piece of hockey tape and place it on the front top of their helmet. This will help the coaches learn your child's name and get to know each of them during their sessions on the ice.

There is no need to push your child, success should be in stages, especially with children who are more reserved.   Bringing them to the rink and showing them around first is a great way to get acquainted.  Try open skating, sticks and pucks or skating on a pond.  Register for a learn to skate class or juicebox class. The main thing is ICE TIME!   Once they start asking to come back for more, its time to progress to a our Tier 3 hockey teams! They are divided by age groups starting at 6U (ages 6 and under) and progressing from there with 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U.

Be patient and let your kids enjoy it at their own pace.  At the end of the day, it’s a game, and it’s supposed to be fun. It’s not about wins and losses, goals and assists, especially at the younger recreational levels. Hopefully your child learns to love the game, makes lifelong friends and memories, and learns important lessons along the way.


The CVHA and all of our teams are affiliates of and governed by the rules and policies set forth by USA Hockey and The Michigan Amateur Hockey Association.

CVHA is a non-profit organization administering the youth hockey program that skates out of Arctic Edge Ice Arena in Canton, Michigan. We are proudly partnered with Arctic Edge Ice Arena so we do not own or operate the building or their programs. 


Our programs are a success only because of the outstanding efforts of our volunteers.   We are always looking for help on and off the ice for this program. 

At minimum, our coaches and volunteers must be registered with USA Hockey as a volunteer, have completed Safesport Training and a background screening

The more coaches we have on the ice, the more that can be accomplished and the better support the players will receive. 

 The more off ice volunteers we have will help teams organize events, tournaments, snacks, photos and more, allowing them to have more fun!!   If you are a parent who would like to get involved, please contact your team manager or the association. 

All volunteer positions are important, it takes a village and hockey is one giant family!   Learn how to run the score clock, play pump up music for the games, organize a snack or fundraiser, take pictures and share them with the families!  All of those thing are appreciated and add to the memories!
