Pre/Post Chill Spring

The Columbus Chill Hockey Club is one of the top hockey programs for Ohio Hockey players who want to compete at a high level while still being eligible to participate with their high school hockey season. 

Participating in high paced, fun practices with an emphasis on skill development and competition are a big key to developing as a player. Every practice will be run by high quality, professional coaches.  Each practice will include a competition aspect that will help players develop in their "Learning to Compete" stage.

A Development Program is offered in the Spring and competitive 16U and 18U teams are fielded in the fall before the high school season.

Spring Development Program

Heading into its 7th year, the Spring Development Program has been a huge success in helping players of all abilities improve their skills, compete against other HS aged players, and have a ton of fun. This program will help improve your skills to make you a better player. Players will be challenged, have lots of repetitions with the puck, and have constant decision making in a game like environment.  

This program has sold out the past few years. Register early.

After the 4/5 session, players will be placed on small teams to compete for the I-270 Cup.  Each Wednesday, teams will play small area games battling for points for placement in the I-270 Cup Tournament during the 5/22 and 5/24 ice sessions. The top team chooses the small area game to be played for the tournament.  The winning team receives a special prize. In the past, it has been Championship Hoodies. 

Monday sessions - skill and technique work (passing, shooting, skating, decision making, position specific details) and Small Area Games

Wednesday sessions - Tournament Style Small Area Games


The practice and games will be facilitated by Coach RJ and his staff. Each year, the Columbus Chill bring in the top coaches and trainers to help the players during the Spring program. LHSS and Lee Harris leads some of the Monday sessions. 

There will be a goalie coach for the goalies at the Monday sessions. Goalies are rotated between the teams. Goalies need to be able to refocus and focus quickly in the small area game environment. This could be the best development they will see all year. 


All players will receive a practice jersey and t-shirt.
