Best Adult Hockey Tournament on the East Coast

2019 Chesapeake Bay Adult Tournament

Not all adult ice hockey leagues are created equal. It comes down to the level of players they attract and how seriously they are run. The same goes for adult tournaments. Good teams don’t waste time with sub-par opponents and lack luster competition. Serious players come to play. The Chesapeake Bay Adult Tournament is special not only for its reputation as a highly competitive tournament—it also keeps the fun rolling on and off the ice.

Free Beer & Tailgate

Sponsored by The Gardens Ice House, Gardens Sports Limited, USA Hockey, and Heineken, participants get to enjoy FREE beer during the tournament along with a lively tailgate, music, and entertainment. The rink’s Icebreaker’s Cafe also provides one lunch item per player.

“Our aim is to bring the same competitive fun and community experience similar to the adult tournaments in Canada, right here in Maryland. Building a sense of camaraderie among the players makes it memorable for everyone. As a result, good teams return to compete every year.”

— Billy Carr, Tournament Director
