Travel Hockey

Developing youth hockey skills and a love for the game.


HYHA offers competitive teams for all age groups from 8U to 18U. Each player, coach and parent should know and understand the rules and potential penalties involved with playing travel ice hockey.


Practices generally begin in August and the season runs through February.


The travel program participates in the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League (CBHL), which consists of teams in Maryland and Virginia.


Practices are typically two evenings per week. An official practice schedule will be released in late summer.


Each level can play up to 20 league games a season depending on how many teams are in the age group/play level. In addition to league games, each team has the option of picking up non-league games for a total of 30 games a season. Each team is also encouraged to participate in tournaments, which are a great experience for both players and families.


Each player must purchase two jerseys (one home, one away) and a pair of socks to complete the uniform. 14U and above must purchase Bulldogs branded pant covers. Information for uniforms will be provided prior to the beginning of the season.

Additional Costs

Each player is required to obtain and maintain their own equipment to include the required travel jerseys and matching socks. Equipment can be purchased at the rink or from suppliers such as HockeyTron or HockeyMonkey. Used equipment is also available through Play It Again Sports in Frederick, Md. Mouth guards are required and can also be purchased at the rink for a nominal charge.


Please take a moment to thoroughly review our Travel Tryout Policy, which includes costs for 2018-19 and other important information.  Your player must be registered with USA Hockey for the 2018-19 season.
