The GCHSCHL is now the OSHL!
Over the summer of 2017 our league has undergone a name change. The Greater Columbus High School Club Hockey League is now called the Ohio Scholastic Hockey League. The change was made for various reasons, including wanting the ability to recognize the continued importance of education as well as recognizing the fact that we have teams in the league outside of the Columbus area.
