LHA's top level Tier II teams compete in the Central States Developmental Hockey League (CSDHL) as well as the Colorado Amateur Hockey Association's (CAHA) Tier II league.

The Central States Development Hockey League (CSDHL) in the #1 Tier II youth hockey league in the United States. CSDHL is a competitive league organized for elite Tier II ice hockey teams within Illinois and the Central States regions. It is sanctioned by USA Hockey and is often referred to as the best AA league in North America. It offers competitive travel hockey at the Midget, Bantam, Pee Wee, and Squirt levels. Players can expect to travel anywhere from 3-6 times out of state for league games and playoffs. Our 18U,16U,16U Prospects, 15U, 14U Major, and 14U Prospects travel as a team for all out-of-state trips throughout the season. Our 12U CSDHL team travels with their family rather than team travel.
