History of Programs

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.

Over the years, the CSSHL has grown to encompass 26 Accredited Schools/Schools with Residence and 84 teams in six different divisions.
