 GENERAL INFORMATION

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. Players who make the team will play on the team. No player who makes the squad will be "warming the bench."  Many Admirals players participate with other teams, including 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 NVSHL is a "no checking" league for all middle school teams. The season begins around November 1st and will comprise ten (10) league games, plus we typically schedule as many as three (3) additional exhibition 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 12-14 practices this year on weekday evenings.

Fees for the season are $750 for current players, and $850 for new players. The additional cost for new players covers the cost of two (2) personalized game jerseys (home and away), as well as matching socks (home and away).

Our head coach, Steve Stryk, is a USA Hockey certified Level 5 coach, assisted by coaches Jeff Dinkelmeyer and Max Gruber.
