Chicago Hockey Institute (CHI) is a Chicago based hockey program focused on enhancing long-term skill development of players from Pre-Mite through the professional levels. Programming ranges from Spring and Summer Skills Clinics to intermittent drop-ins and are primarily based out of Fifth Third Ice Arena and Mcfetridge Sports Complex. CHI focuses on providing an exciting, fun and positive experience for players to hone their skills and learn from some of the best coaches in Chicago.
The CHI program is managed by longtime youth development coach and former professional hockey player Kevin Doell. Kevin is currently the Hockey Director for the Chicago Stallions Hockey Association, where he has assisted in player development for over ten years. Kevin had an 11 year professional hockey career spanning top leagues in the North America, Sweden, Finland and Austria including the NHL (Atlanta Thrashers), AHL (Chicago Wolves) and ECHL. He is also a proud alum of one of the top NCAA Division 1 hockey programs in the country, the University of Denver Pioneers.
CHI works with former and current professional players and coaches to develop optimal training techniques that are proven to help in the skill development of each athlete. The coaches that work at CHI clinics and camps, all have an immense amount of hockey knowledge and have participated in this great game the majority of their life. We hope you can join us for one of our clinics or camps soon!
