CHA Membership

Levels and Benefits

Becoming a member of the Cornell Hockey Association supports the team by providing supplies, refreshments, and fan support to the players and coaches. We are a community based, non-profit organization recognized by the University as the Official fan-support group to the team.

Membership dues at any level in support of the Men’s Team are welcome and greatly appreciated. Look through our membership categories and decide which is a best fit for you. THANK YOU!

We have two options for membership application and payment

  1. NEW AND EASY! Start or renew your membership on-line and pay with your credit card
  2. To pay by check, you may start or renew your membership on-line here or print an application. In either case, please mail your check (and the printed application – if you choose that option) to: Cornell Hockey Association, PO Box 4265, Ithaca, NY 14852

Please note: The Internal Revenue Service regulations mandate that gifts made in exchange for benefit privileges are not fully tax-deductible. If you choose to accept benefits, the amount of your tax-deductible gift will be reduced by the value of your benefits received. In some cases, the fair market value of the premium is considered insubstantial and will not count against the tax-deductible gift. If you decline the benefits package at the time, you make your contribution, your gift may be fully tax-deductible.
