The Northern Virginia "NoVA" Ice Dogs is a local, family-friendly organization offering competitive and developmental hockey for boys and girls ages 5-18.
NoVA Ice Dogs will have a reduced program while our home rink at Mount Vernon ReCenter is under renovation.
As a non-profit, volunteer-run organization skating out of public rinks, the Ice Dogs represent the most affordable and accessible quality hockey experience in the DMV.
Tryouts for Girls' CBHL 10/12U, 14U, and 16/19U teams will be April 28 and 30 at Tucker Road. Click here for more information and to register for tryouts.

The Ice Dogs have historically offered multiple programs for players of all interests. Due to the closing of our home rinks for renovation, we will not be able to offer the same range of programs in the 2023-24 season. The below information reflects our current planning based on anticipated ice availability.
CBHL: a traditional ‘travel hockey’ co-ed program for the 10u, 12u, 14u and older age groups that would practice twice per week and play 30+ games during the season. The season usually begins in late august and runs into March. Teams have participated in the competitive CBHL.
2023-24 status: PAUSED
CCHL: a “travel-lite” co-ed program for 10u, 12u, 14u, and older that typically practices once per week and plays 15-20 games in the CCHL season that usually begins in mid-September or early October and runs to March.
2023-24 status: ACTIVE
8U: a co-ed program for all kids age 8 and under that emphasizes building a love for the game and teaching core skills like skating, stickhandling, passing, and shooting. The 8U program serves to prepare players to feed into up into the CBHL, CCHL, or Girls program once a player hits age 9.
2023-24 status: ACTIVE
Girls: our all-girls program for ages 10u and older that competes in the all-girls division of the CBHL. These teams typically practice twice per week and play 25-30 games vs other all-girl teams.
2024-24 status: ACTIVE
We are offering co-ed Intra County League teams, co-ed 3 v 3, and girls' teams for spring 2022.
