Travel Program

The Southern Maryland Sabres Hockey Club is a USA Hockey Tier II program that fields competitive teams from the 8U to 18U age groups. These teams participate in the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League (CBHL) and the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League.  Our home arena is the Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf, MD. 

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.
