Travel Ice Hockey

Prince William Hockey Club offers competitive hockey at the Tier II level.  We participate in the CBHL (Chesapeake Bay Hockey League) and generally travel to rinks in Virginia, Maryland and DC for our league games. Most travel teams also participate in several tournaments throughout the season.

It is our goal to provide a fun, competitive environment where young hockey players can gain the skills and experience they need to continue playing year after year.  Some of PWHC's alumni choose to play college or junior hockey as well.

Craig Laughlin and The Network Hockey Development Program

Exciting New Offering for Travel Skills and Goalie Clinics

The Prince William Hockey Club has partnered with the Network Hockey Development Program, led by former Washington Capitals star Craig Laughlin, to conduct challenging and enriching skills clinics for the Club's Travel players as well as all PWHC goalies for the 2014-2015 Fall/Winter hockey season.

The Network Hockey Development Program, based out of Laurel, Md., offers a variety of on-ice and off-ice programs to develop hockey players at all competition levels. NHDP's entire staff is packed with seasoned players and coaches with collegiate and professional hockey experience. Despite a grueling schedule as Comcast Sports Net's analyst for the Washington Capitals, Craig Laughlin will personally lead most of the clinics throughout the season.

This curriculum for training will be very intense and provide our players the opportunity to learn from a former NHL star. Craig and his staff will work with our player's mental and physical toughness, to help them compete harder. This program will help distinguish the Prince William Hockey Club as one of the best in the area for youth hockey development.

-All NHDP clinics will be held on Monday Evenings at the Prince William Ice Center

-All Travel Teams will have a 50 minute on-ice skills and a 30 minute video/chalk talk training session on alternating weeks

PWHC Creates and Initiates Club-wide Concussion Policy & Training

 With the recent media attention and better understanding of concussions in sports, the board of directors saw the need to create and address a concussion policy within our own club to protect the players and the coaches.  

The goal of this was to not only educate the coaches, but the players and parents as well.  While the training listed in the policy is mandatory for the coaches in house, inline, and travel, PWHC strongly encourages all families to review the information provided by the CDC.
