The Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) is a minor hockey and Hockey Canada sanctioned league based in Western Canada and the United States.

The CSSHL was founded in 2009 with five "Sport Schools" based in Alberta and British Columbia. The CSSHL was specifically designed to enable like-minded student athletes an increased level of competition and exposure.

Today, the CSSHL currently has grown to 70 teams from 19 different "Sport Schools" spread across seven divisions: Midget Prep, Midget Varsity, Elite 15s, Bantam Prep, Bantam Varsity, Female Prep and Female Varsity. Over 400 CSSHL alumni have gone on to play Junior 'A' or Major Junior hockey.[1]


Founded in 2009, the five original members of the CSSHL were the Banff Hockey Academy, Edge School, International Hockey Academy, Okanagan Hockey Academy and the Pursuit of Excellence.
