Rec Program

The Southern Maryland Sabres Hockey Club recreational program is designed to provide hockey players an opportunity to learn and develop skills in a team setting. The recreational program is also designed to assure equal opportunity to participate for all skill levels. Players of all skill levels are welcome. No tryouts required.


The Sabres have adopted the USA Hockey American Development Model (ADM).  The ADM provides age-appropriate guidelines and curriculum to hockey associations across America to help more kids play, love and excel in hockey. For the Mite program, we promote the integration of cross-ice practices and games into youth hockey, raising the level of creativity among players, increasing player participation, and creating a positive environment

These teams participate in the Capital Corridor Hockey League (CCHL). The league is part of the Southeastern District  of USA Hockey. Our home arena is the Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf, MD.

Additional information regarding the SMSHC Rec Program can be found in the Rec Member Handbook.
