Pre/Post Chill Fall

The Columbus Chill Hockey Club is one of the top Ohio Pre/Post hockey programs for High School players from central Ohio.

Under the guidance and leadership of Coach RJ Umberger, the Columbus Chill gives players the opportunity to learn from professional coaches through a proven training schedule. Practices are fast paced and challenge players through innovative drills and games to provide comprehensive skill development that will transfer to game play better than “old-school” drills. Off-ice activities will include informational seminars and video sessions to enhance each player’s physical, mental and emotional development to perform at a high level during the Chill season and for their High School team.

The Chill will field 18U and 16U teams. The teams will run from early August to late October. The Chill have approximately 20 hours of practice and plan to play 20 home and away games within 2 - 6 hours from Columbus. The 18U and 16U teams plan to compete for the MidAm District Championship in late October for the chance to secure a bid to the USA Hockey National Championships held on March 30 - April 3, 2023. 


The 2022 schedule will be finalized in the upcoming weeks. It will be similar to the 2021 season. In 2021, the teams traveled to four tournaments (Cleveland, Sylvania, Ann Arbor, and Nashville). Both teams were very successful in 2021. The 18U team won two tournaments and finished the season ranked 12th in MyHockeyRankings. The 16U team won one tournament in 2021.
