Arlington Admirals Middle School Hockey Club: Welcome




The Arlington Admirals Middle School Hockey Club is about having fun. We are members of the Northern Virginia Scholastic Hockey League (“NVSHL”). Our club prides itself on sportsmanship and teamwork, as well as being great competitors. Many Admirals players participate with other teams, including the Washington Little Capitals, Team Maryland, Capitals Academy Travel, Nova Ice Dogs, Reston Raiders, as well as many kids from area House teams. The Admirals are a great tradition in Arlington, and the coaches and parents work hard to ensure that each kid has an enjoyable hockey experience playing for our team.  

The Admirals finished first in the Northern Virginia Scholastic Hockey League in 2017-17. The Admirals practice and play home games at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington.

The NVSHL is a "no checking" league for all middle school teams. The season begins around November 1st and will comprise ten (10) league games.  Our NVSHL games have traditionally been scheduled on Friday evenings, usually in the 5:30pm - 9:30pm timeframe. We also plan to hold a two-day team "boot camp" in September, and we will hold approximately 5-10 practices this year on weekday afternoons, typically in the 3:30-5:00 pm time slot at Kettler.

 The team is coached by Jeff Dinkelmeyer and Max Gruber, a USA Hockey certified Level 1 and 3 coaches.
