Mission Statement: “To be National Leaders in Education-Based Hockey”
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 2021-22 season, the CSSHL will feature 26 Accredited Schools/Schools with Residence and 94 teams in eight different divisions.
All programs within the CSSHL are sanctioned Hockey Canada Accredited Schools or Schools with Residence, meeting the regulations of not only Hockey Canada, but their respective provincial or regional members.
The CSSHL continually strives to be a leader in education based hockey in North America. 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.
