Sabres 6U/8U Hockey

Our Mites program is for players with Birth Years 2015-2019.

Sabres players will be split by skill level at an evaluation held on September 9, 2023 (details below).

The top 2 teams will play Half-Ice in the CBHL. The remainder of teams will play on Cross-Ice teams. Players can opt out of Half-Ice if their desire is to play Cross-Ice. All teams should expect to travel some for games, but the travel schedule for Half-Ice is heavier.

Experience Required

The only “experience” required to become a Sabre Mite player is that the player must be able to stand up on their own on the ice if they fall down. Programs such as Learn To Play, Snowplow Sam, etc. are certainly beneficial - but are NOT required to become a Sabre.


Program starts in September with evaluations, and practices will begin that week as well. Season will run through the end of February.


Practices and home games will be at the Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf.


Players will practice 2 times per week. Half Ice players will have a 3rd skills practice with the Sabres Skills instructors.


Teams will play in CBHL Jamborees, and any other games scheduled throughout season.


Players must purchase game jerseys in addition to registration fee.

We will have 2 Half-Ice teams, up to 4 Cross Ice teams (as numbers allow), and an all girls team.  The all girls team will be made up of players pulled from the other 6 teams.  The all girls team will play in girls games, as they can be scheduled, but the girls will practice with their assigned coed Mite team.   

If you do not want your child to be placed on a Half-Ice team, please email the Hockey Director before evaluations to let him know: Scott Kelly -

The practice schedule is as follows:  

Half-Ice A&B:

The Mite game slot at the Clubhouse will be Saturdays from 11:20am - 12:20pm.  Mite teams will not have home games every weekend.  Home games are scheduled very fluidly throughout the season, and games will be added as they are scheduled.  The Mite teams will also have away games, and Jamborees - which are also scheduled on a fluid basis.
