    The NoVA Ice Dogs fielded two 8U teams in the 3-5 May CCM Showdown hosted at Prince William Ice Arena. Both teams had the opportunity to play 4 games against teams from around the region, honing their skills and having a great time doing it!

    Congratulations to our Silver Tournament Team that finished second in the Silver Division of the Tournament, losing a nail-biter 10-9 in sudden death overtime.

    NoVA 8U LA won the Dorchester Championship at the Mite Beach Bash Tournament in Ocean City, MD on 3 March!  The team lost their first game by a goal to Grundy, came from behind to tie Allegheny and outright beat Lehigh Valley to advance to the final round.  The awesome goal tending of William “Wild Bill” Vrabec and Ryan “Goldie” Goldfarb won the Ice Dogs the championship with a final score of 3-2 over Lehigh Valley.  The team celebrated with a trophy, medals, and the shaving of Coach Dan’s head on the beach.  Way to go, Ice Dogs!

    NoVA 8U Hockey Programs

    2019-2020 Season

    The NoVA Hockey Club Dogs offers opportunities for both boys and girls born in the 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 calendar years.  All children born in these calendar years will play in the Club's 8U House Program.  A subset of these children born in 2011, 2012, and 2013 will play in the Club's 8U Travel Program.

    The current season will run from August 2019 through February 2020.

    If your child has played or participated in the Club's 2018-2019 NoVA 8U Hockey Program, the 2019 NoVA Spring Program, our Learn to Play Program or an equivalent Learn to Play Program, then your child is likely ready for one or both of our NoVA 8U Hockey Programs. Please ask if you have any questions.

    Comparing our 8U House Program Fee of $650 to other Programs while considering the amount of ice touches your child will receive, the NoVA 8U House Program is for you. We look forward to seeing your child on the ice!
