Elizbethtown Bears hoist the CPIHL Viola Cup
Long before the Elizbethtown Bears High School Ice Hockey team were recognized as champions and hoisted the CPIHL Viola Cup, they were a group of seven- and eight-year-olds doing their own thing on a downtown roller hockey rink.
"It feels good, a lot of hard work," said Dave Dolan. "The work really began back when these kids were in kindergarten doing roller hockey leagues.
"I ran a roller hockey league trying to get kids involved to play and sometimes 50-60 kids would be at the roller hockey rink. And out of all of those kids, the majority of them came through our program and played on our hockey team."

Playing with classmates for the school colors and mascot is an important part of the roller hockey experience growing up. Please help us to keep our student-athletes on the rinks!
