With decades of volunteer efforts by great people to organize youth hockey in the community of Copper Cliff, a neighbourhood of Greater Sudbury, the minor hockey association’s executive board has renewed their rep program look and feel to accompany many of the updates and progressive changes with the local not for profit organization.
The organization is thankful for the more than 85 years of contribution from volunteer coaches, trainers, and board members as well as players, parents and officials who have made all the games, practices and tournaments building blocks to young hockey players who become good productive citizens, many of whom have returned to coach their children in the program.
The organization welcomes the changes as they celebrate the history of the organization and it’s graduates and players alike.
If your child is interested in learning the great canadian game of hockey this season, please contact the association for how and when to register your child this season.
On behalf of Copper Cliff Minor Hockey Association, I would like to congratulate Max McCue for being the highest selection of former CCMHA players in the 2019 OHL Priority Draft. Max was drafted in the 2nd round – 34th overall – by the London Knights. Max began his AA career in Copper Cliff as a Novice. CCMHA wishes you success in your upcoming Junior career and hopefully beyond. Well done!
