COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The 2019 Chipotle-USA Hockey National Championships commence Thursday (March 28) in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, with the High School tournament taking center stage.
Featuring three divisions, including Division I (for single-school teams), Division II (for teams comprised of players from multiple high schools) and, for the second consecutive year, a Girls Division, the High School tournament will be held at both OBM Arena (Division I, Girls Division) and Mentor Ice Arena (Division II). The Buckeye State has hosted USA Hockey Nationals on 13 previous occasions, most recently in 2017 when Gilmour Academy Ice Complex and the Mentor Civic Arena were the sites of USA Hockey's High School tournament.
As part of USA Hockey Nationals, some 4,000 players will compete for American hockey top honors in the sled, youth, girls, high school, adult and women's levels at 13 host sites across the United States between now and late April.
USA Hockey, in conjunction with HockeyTV, will stream all the action online. Games are available live and on-demand by visiting USAHockey.HockeyTV.com, creating an account and purchasing a subscription.
