AAA Program


The Jr. Steel provides an opportunity for athletes to be trained by the Chippewa staff via on-ice practice sessions and video feedback. Our athletes will learn what it takes to play junior hockey.

Our athletes will compete against five other NAHL sponsored AAA programs in the newly announced NAPHL Fall League.  This gives our players the opportunity to compete against other top AAA teams in three NAHL sponsored events.  These events provide our athletes with direct exposure to junior, college, and elite full season AAA programs.

The program will run from late-August through mid-October.

  • NAHL Showcase – September 17-20, 2020 in Blaine, Minnesota
