Bowie Hockey Club has been providing quality hockey instruction for over 40 years. The club provides a wide range of programs, from instructional hockey for the very beginner to competitive travel teams.
Our recreational teams compete in the CCHL, travel teams play in the the CBHL, and our top teams also play in the EJEPL, a league made up of teams from the east coast and also other areas of the country. The club also runs a spring hockey program to keep our player's skills sharp for tryouts.
The club also encourages and supports our player's academic and community spirit. We attend BowieFest annually and this year our coaches are playing the Wounded Warriors on September 19 at 3:15 PM in a game to support this great cause.

Just because we spend a lot of time in heavy winter coats and other warm clothing, doesn't mean we don't like to be stylish...
Rebecca DeSantis-a BHC supporter and fan-is graciously donating 30% of product sales to Bowie Hockey! Read on for more information...
Hello Hockey Moms! My name is Rebecca DeSantis; although I’m not a member, I am a Bowie Hockey Club supporter and fan. As such, I will be running a Jamberry fundraiser for your club.
First, let me give you some information regarding Jamberry Nails. Jams are heat-activated vinyl nail wraps. They’re unlike anything else you can buy anywhere else. They’re not polish strips, but a vinyl adhesive that adhere through heat and pressure and they LAST and NO DRY TIME!!!!! Jamberry wraps outlast the dollar-store brands and even the expensive salon brands. They don’t chip, fade, or smell — and they don’t dry out or expire. Jamberry wraps last up to 2 weeks on your ﬁngers and up to 6 weeks on your toes (yes, you read that right!) They will withstand even the coldest rinks and your hands will look so great you’ll hate to cover them with gloves. They’re versatile and come in many designs. I even designed Bowie Hockey Club wraps for this fundraiser!!! These will be on display at Open House.
Now that you know a little about the product, let me explain how you can help raise money for your club. There are a couple of ways we are running this fundraiser. One is a typical fundraiser, where you ask friend and family to look through a catalog and you collect orders and money. These catalogs, if you choose to do the fundraiser this way, will be available at the Open House. This will run until September 26, when orders form will have to be turned in to Sarah Davia. The second way we are running the fundraiser is an event page on Facebook. This begins September 1st and ends September 30th. The entire fundraiser is done on Facebook. I will run the event, but you SHOULD add family and friends to the event. The more people added to the event the more orders we will get for the Hockey Club. There will be games to play and prizes to win. All orders will be shipped directly to the customer. No gathering orders, collecting money or passing out the product! The link to the Facebook fundraiser is listed below. You can even share the event once you have joined.
The last way is to email the following link to friend and family who are not on Facebook: https://rebeccadesantis.jamberry.com/party/... No gathering orders, collecting money or passing out the product! Bowie Hockey Club can earn up to 30% of the product sales. So let’s sell!!! Any questions? Ask me! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are some notes from the board meeting last week:
*Our Open House is September 19 from 100PM to 600PM at the rink. We will be having food and fun first and then the Bowie coaches will be playing the Wounded Warriors in a charity game. It will be a lot of fun, with raffles, food, and things to purchase, please come out if you can. See our website for more details.
*Fees are due on October 1 for travel players and November 1 for rec players. Players must be paid in full by these dates in order to continue skating at practices, skills sessions, and games.
*Game and practice schedules from travel teams are 99% complete, please take a look at the website. You will be informed of any changes.
*Practice schedules for rec are also complete. Game scheduling is ongoing. You will not be able to see an individual team schedule until rosters are posted, though you can see the club's weekly schedule and deduce team schedules from that.
*The Big Bear tournament not filling brackets was disappointing. Teams that are not playing at the tournament were scheduled for non-league games.
The summer is nearing it's end and we all know that means a return to school and, even better, a return to the rink. As is customary for the beginning of the season, Bowie Hockey invites all members to join us at the Open House on Saturday, September 19 from 1pm to 6pm. Please see the attached flyer for a schedule of events.
This year, in an attempt to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the USA Warriors, the Bowie Hockey Club will host the Warriors' standing ice hockey team at the Open House event at the Bowie Ice Arena. The Warriors will go head-to-head against the Bowie Bruin Coaches in the Warriors’ season opener in a game that will start at 3:00 pm. The public is invited to attend the event to cheer on the Warriors, heroes who have served and were wounded in defense of the United States.
Present and past U.S. military personnel will be invited to stand for recognition. If you have family members or friends who are past military, please extend an invitation to them to join us as well. Donations, although not required, are very much appreciated and will be accepted on behalf of the USA Warriors at the event. In addition to donations, items, including a Washington Capitals’ team-signed stick, will be raffled off during the game with funds directly benefiting the USA Warriors’ program. If you wish to donate prior to the event, you may do so here.
Please email Sarah Davia at
by 9/11 with a headcount of the number attending. It is important that you email your headcount so that we have an accurate number for food purchases. We encourage all members to attend this exciting event.
Thank you for your continued support!
About the USA Warriors
“The program educates, trains, motivates, and encourages the formation of USA Warrior Hockey Programs locally and nationally while encouraging individuals who have physical disabilities incurred during service to the United States to participate in the sport of ice hockey in an environment that is adapted to the level of their ability.”
August is upon us and, before we know it, the hockey season will begin. We certainly hope you've been enjoying your summer and are looking forward to returning to the rink.
As the season approaches, there are a few dates we'd like you to keep in mind:
Saturday, September 19th, BHC is hosting our Annual Open House. This year's event will be unlike any before. The USA Warriors will be facing the BHC Head Coaches in a battle on the ice. Proceeds from raffles and donations will benefit the USA Warriors. Please join us from 1:00pm to 3:15pm for a cookout at the rink. At 3:15pm, we will move indoors to cheer on our favorite coaches and the Warriors. Bring your skates (no gear required) to join the Warriors and Coaches on the ice for a casual skate from 5:00 to 6:00pm. Please plan on attending our season kickstarter event. Further information to come.
In addition to Open House, Friday, October 16th, is Hocktoberfest, our 3rd annual club-wide fundraising event. This event is held from 7:30-11:30pm at Renditions Golf Club. Tickets are $50 per person which covers food, beverages (including beer and wine), starter chips, and lots of fun. A Silent Auction will be held and anyone willing to donate items to the auction should contact Sarah Davia at
@comcast.net. More information regarding ticket sales is forthcoming; in the meantime, hire a babysitter, invite friends and family members, and plan to join us this great event!
Thanks for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you at these important Club events.
