Thinking about joining the Wolves? Here are some things you might want to know first:


I’ve never played hockey before. Can I play with The Washington Wolves?


The Washington Wolves is not a learn-to-play-club, but we will on occasion accept women who are solid ice skaters even if they have little or no hockey experience. However, even in those situations, we recommend that you spend some time at a learn-to-play program or in one of the local recreational leagues before trying to join the Wolves. Both the Garden's Ice House in Laurel, Md., and the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va., have programs better suited for beginners. 

I’ve been playing hockey for years. Can I play?

Yes. We have two teams — one competes in the MAWHL C division and one competes in the MAWHL D division. If you have a fair bit of hockey experience under your belt, the C team is probably the best fit for you. We hold evaluations at the beginning of every season to determine the C and D team rosters.

I’m under 18. Can I play for The Wolves?

Nope, sorry. Come back in a few years.

Where are practices?

We practice at the Ft. Dupont Ice Rink, in Washington, D.C. It’s located at 3779 Ely Place, SE, Washington, D.C. 20019. See a map or get directions.

How often do you practice?

We practice on Tuesday nights at 10:00 p.m. from mid-September until mid-March.

Where are games?

Our home games are played at Herbert Wells Ice Rink in College Park, Md. You can find directions here

For away games, we travel to Baltimore, Virginia, Pittsburgh, Hagerstown and other parts of the MidAtlantic Region.

How frequently do you play games?

Usually we have one game each weekend, though we take a break during December for the holidays. Sometimes we will schedule two games in a weekend to cut down on the number of times we have to drive far distances.



How expensive is it?

The 2013-2014 Wolves season will cost $875. You can pay all at once, or divide it into payments spaced throughout the season.

Want to check out a practice?

Send us an e-mail at and we will let you know of the next upcoming practice. Before getting on the ice, you will need to provide your USA Hockey registration number, a signed code of conduct, and $25 toward rink fees.

I still have more questions. Who can answer them for me?
