Hockey, Eastern Shore, Maryland, Ice Hockey, Easton IceHawks

My my My my


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.
