The CAROLINA JUNIOR HURRICANES HOCKEY ASSOCIATION (CJHHA) is a not-for-profit organization founded in May of 1987. CJHHA has served the Raleigh and Triangle area for 25 years. CJHHA is the largest USA Hockey travel based association in the Carolinas with nearly 550 members ranging in age from 8 to 18. We offer a comprehensive set of programs ranging from Skills Development Clinics to competitive league programs for Tier II A through Tier I AAA Travel players.
In February of 2007, CJHHA formed a partnership with the Carolina Hurricanes NHL Team. The Hurricanes through their Canes Youth and Amateur Hockey (CYAH) program work closely with the RYHA to develop and promote youth hockey. Under this partnership, all CJHHA teams are known as the Carolina Junior Hurricanes and wear the Hurricanes logo.
In January, of 2019, RYHA and the Carolina Eagles merged programs and officially rebranded to the Carolina Junior Hurricanes. The organization is now excited to boast 25 boys teams at the AAA and AA/A levels, as well as 10 Girls teams at the AA, A, and Select levels. We are proud to say the two organizations together are working to provide an even stronger foundation for Raleigh area hockey players.
The Junior Hurricanes work collaboratively with area House/Recreational programs to develop youth hockey players skills and provide additional competitive playing opportunities.
