EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE
All CAHL leagues and programs are played under the auspices of USA Hockey and all events are played at the Ice Den Scottsdale. Located on Bell Road just east of the 101 Freeway, the Ice Den Scottsdale is a 150,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art ice skating and entertainment center and still home to the NHL's Arizona Coyotes Hockey Club who practice at the facility on a regular basis. The Ice Den Scottsdale is also home to a Mountainside Fitness Platinum training center, Coyotes Ice Sports Prop Shop, an Over Easy breakfast diner, Chilly Bean Café, Divalicious women’s boutique and 18 Degrees, North Scottsdale's coolest neighborhood grill.
Through regular captain and committee meetings, the league strives to provide a structure that’s conducive to fair and safe play. Each year, league staff incorporates new rules and procedures that have been adopted by the league and incorporates them into the annual CAHL Player Handbook In addition, divisional parity is also a high priority for the CAHL. While the league understands the desire for teams to form based on friendships and convenience, it also has a responsibility to make the games competitive. As a result, the CAHL staff does reserve the right to move players or whole teams into more appropriate skill levels if necessary.
All Divisions Feature:
- One game per week (excluding traditional holiday weeks)
- Guarantee of two playoff games

League standings, statistics, rosters and league updates are posted daily and are available online via Pointstreak, the Ice Den’s fully automated scorekeeping system.
Pointstreak is a new, fully automated scorekeeping and stats system that has been recently purchased by the Ice Den. It eliminates the old paper scoresheets as scorekeepers use the Pointstreak touchscreen to track the games. In addition, the system generates pre-printed scoresheets based on the official league rosters approved by the league staff. It also serves as the on-line membership tool. CAHL members simply click on their divisional link and instantly enjoy access to team and divisional schedules, standings, team records, scoring leaders and more.
