8U Program

The 8U program is for players with birth years 2013 through 2015. Games are played “cross ice,” which is better for young players, and the focus is on skill development, teamwork and having fun. 

The Ice Dogs register one 8U travel team in the CBHL, after tryouts in the summer. All other 8U teams play in the club’s house program, against other Ice Dog teams and area clubs.  

8U players can expect 6 practices and 2 games each month, plus jamborees and tournaments. Games and jamborees are held at rinks throughout Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland.

NoVA Ice Dogs Girls Teams have several options for leagues and level of play. This season we have teams playing in the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League (CBHL), a Tier II hockey league, and playing independent schedules.

Tryouts are held each spring for placement on teams. The season runs from August to March. The level of play for each team is determined after tryouts and that determines league, schedule, and national-bound declarations.

Girls Teams can expect 2-3 weekly practices and approximately 2 games on weekends, as well as 3-4 tournaments throughout the season. Most games are played at rinks throughout Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland with some teams traveling routinely to Pennsylvania and New Jersey; tournaments may be farther away.
