Defending The Blue Line is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by a group of National Guard soldiers. The charity assists families of all branches of the military with costs associated with hockey. They provide financial assistance for registration fees, free equipment, summer hockey camps, and sending many deserving families down to NHL hockey games in several different markets.
Defending The Blue Line is excited for this opportunity to further help military families. Keeping the kids focused and active in hockey is a great way to help keep their minds off of a parent’s upcoming deployment.
The Ice Pack Hockey League is a private pick-up hockey league started in the spring of 2006. They currently host games among six teams on Tuesday & Thursday nights at the B & C level of adult hockey. They play their games at Cabin John Ice Rink.
