WELCOME TO EASTON ICEHAWKS
HOCKEY ONLINE!

 

Founded in 1979, the Eastern Shore Hockey Association (ESHA) is a non-profit youth ice hockey organization, committed to helping our children to learn and develop the skills necessary to play ice hockey in a safe environment.

With our limited resources, every effort has been made to offer options suitable for each player’s age, ability, and competitive interest.

We currently have teams dedicated to recreational level youth hockey (CCHL / Red teams) as well as a more competitive Tier II youth hockey program (CBHL / Blue teams). Both, the Red and Blue team, are USA Hockey age levels U10 (Squirts) through U18 (Midgets). We also offer U8 (Mites) and U6 (Atoms) instructional hockey which teaches the basic fundamentals and elements of the game, this program may participate in games and mite jamborees which are usually cross-ice with Limited Travel.

With only one ice rink in our area, both Red and Blue teams are considered “travel” hockey teams and are for the experienced skaters (for learn to skate or youth non-travel hockey CLICK HERE).  ESHA’s Tier II “Blue” teams play within the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League (CBHL), being more competitive, and played to win. The Red Teams typically play in the Capitol Corridor Hockey League (CCHL) which is a little more “recreational” in nature.  Both the CBHL and CCHL are comprised of teams from Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC, with most teams being within a two-hour drive from the Easton area. The youth hockey season runs from September through March. Most teams have two evening practices per week with games on the weekends. Player evaluations are scheduled in April and are open to returning and new players.

It is very important that players and parents understand and accept the time commitment of playing on a team, especially the CBHL Travel Teams.

2017-18 Coaching and Assessment Announcements

Going into assessments, it is important for our membership to know ESHA’s goal is to accommodate every player on a team and have at least two teams at most age level. ESHA uses Blue (Upper team) and Red (Lower team) designations to differentiate the skill and potential playing levels of the teams. The number of teams and coaches necessary will be determined by the number of players registered at every age level. Extra teams and coaches will be added as necessary.

Evaluation Process

This year, ESHA will adopt a more standardized assessment plan across all teams in an effort to more accurately assess each player. Our goals are to be as transparent and communicative as possible to reduce the stress and anxiety often associated with the evaluation process. Independent assessors will be at every assessment to evaluate all players.

BEGINNING HOCKEY PROGRAMS
 

Options for families interested in beginning hockey include:

  • Try Hockey For Free (THFF), offered in the fall and winter each year (November and February) through USA Hockey and hosted by ESHA. Watch our website for announcements. Participants in the fall THFF event can continue the experience by registering for our Transition program, which gradually integrates new players into travel hockey.
  • Jamie Webb program, offered through Talbot County Parks and Recreation (TCPR).

From THFF or Jamie Webb, ESHA looks forward to welcoming hockey players to our program. 

For more information about Jamie Webb, visit: http://www.talbotcountymd.gov/index.php?page=Jamie_Webb_Youth_Foundation

TCPR also offers a Learn-to-Skate program for children who are brand new to ice skating.
