Loudoun Knights 2022/23 have partnered with PureHockey as our Uniform provider this season
The Loudoun Knights are excited to launch the 2022-23 hockey season! Coach Craig Desjarlais will lead the Knights in their third season. This season the Knights will be playing in the Chesapeake Bay Hockey League ("CBHL") and the Eastern Junior Elite Prospects League (EJEPL). Goalie coach Dan Keyes will continue working with all club goalies, and with dedicated video rooms and athletic training spaces, the Knights offer an excellent opportunity for local players to develop.
And development is what we're all about. The Knights AA and A hockey programs are an important part of the Ion Road- a full development model structured to promote players from their first ice touch through each advancement stage until they are ready to move on to college and beyond.
Our staff is currently also working on building a robust development program at Ion to bring new players into the system, help them develop a passion for the game, and a drive to someday play for the Knights!
Tryouts for Knights' Teams from 8U to 18U will begin on April 25th. In the meanwhile, Ion International Training Center has a full array of camps and clinics to help get your game on track for the coming Knights' season.
2022-23 SEASON INFO:
Knights teams will practice Monday and Wednesday evenings, and take advantage of Ion’s tremendous resources, including a dedicated video room for off-ice instruction and specialty training spaces for hockey-specific strength training and conditioning. Coaches will require players to be at both on-ice practices, the off-ice workouts, and one video session per week. We believe in total athlete development, and must train our brains and bodies in addition to the training we do on the ice.
Knights home games will take place Saturday and Sunday afternoons throughout the season.
All Knights' Teams will participate in 2-3 tournaments throughout the year, including tournaments both at Ion and elsewhere (Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Boston, and Michigan.)
