Jon Hansen joins the Chicago Gay Hockey Association in one of their community events “Learn to Skate” as well as one of their team practice. “A day with the Chicago Gay Hockey Association”
The Chicago Gay Hockey Association (CGHA) is Chicago’s Official gay hockey organization and was established in July of 2002 by Chuck Jacobson, who was inspired after attending a tournament hosted by the NYCGHA. The CGHA is a registered 501c-3 organization.
Our mission is to provide a non-discriminatory environment within the hockey community. We encourage all people with a passion for ice hockey – novice or pro, male or female, straight or gay – to contact us and learn to skate, play on our team, volunteer for social events, come to the games, and join our organization.
For the first season, the team was named SPIN and played in the Vernon Hills Glacier Ice Arena Men’s league. After that, the newly named Blackwolves played in the Rolling Meadows Park District Adult Men’s League, Level 5.
Currently, the CGHA fields one team that plays in the C3 division at Johnny’s Ice House.
