T.E.A.C.H. Program

CLHA is proud to offer the True Excellence in Academics & Chisago Lakes Hockey (T.E.A.C.H.) program to encourage, support and reward youth hockey players who commit themselves to their schoolwork while enjoying the sport of hockey.  

As competitors, young players set goals for themselves on the ice and in the classroom. Like the cheers they hear for goals, assists and a good hustle, they respond positively to recognition and rewards for their performance in the classroom.

CLHA hopes to generate a lasting, measurable impact on higher achievement in the classroom and increase awareness among youth hockey players that performance in the classroom is more important in life than performance on the ice.

If the skater does not attend a Chisago Lakes school and/or their school uses a regular A-F grading system, we will use this table to calculate based on math and reading grades.

This program recognizes skaters who achieve a 3.0 G.P.A. or higher, on a 4.0 scale, during the academic period which coincides with the hockey season.

All skaters must be a registered Chisago Lakes Hockey Association member (includes girls participating in the Forest Lake playing agreement for levels U10, U12, and U15). 

High School and Middle School:

  • Skaters must have an average of a 3.0 GPA for 1st and 2nd term report cards. 

Kindergarten through 5th Grade:

  • Since Chisago Lakes elementary schools do not follow a traditional A-F or Satisfactory grading system, skaters must receive a 3 average in reading and math on their 1st term report card.


  • Will qualify provided they are enrolled in a preschool program.
