The Bears organization currently serves as the primary development club for the NHL's Washington Capitals since the 2005–06 season. Since the 2002–03 season the hockey club's home games have been played at Giant Center, located less than half a mile west of Hersheypark Arena, the AHL club's previous home from 1938 to 2002. (The arena was also the home to the EAHL Hershey Bears from 1936 to 1938.) The Bears have won 11 Calder Cups, more than any other AHL team. They won their most recent title in 2010.

The history of Hershey hockey goes back to a series of amateur hockey matches played in Hershey between college teams beginning in early 1931. The first such formal hockey game ever played in Hershey took place on February 18, 1931, when Penn A.C. and Villanova University faced off in the 1,900-seat Hershey Ice Palace. Nine months after that successful inaugural contest, Swarthmore Athletic Club moved into the Ice Palace, where they played their first game on November 19, 1931, against Crescent A.C. of New York City. In the lineup that night for Crescent was a 23-year-old center named Lloyd S. Blinco, a native of Grand Mere, Quebec, who came to Hershey the next season and would remain continuously associated with Hershey hockey for a half century as a player, coach, and manager.

The 15U Burtonsville Thunder team had an incredibly fun season led by longtime coach and Burtonsville Athletic Association legend, Doc Egan. We have a dedicated group of coaches and a team that works hard together and continues to improve their skills. This team looks forward to testing their baseball abilities on the field in the Spring 2019 season.

In July 2017, we traveled to Cooperstown, NY where several players successfully competed, placed and won the individual skills competitions. The team fared well in the tournament and the families thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to participate in this traditional youth baseball event. (Source: www.burtonsvillebaseball.org)
