Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. is a Chevy Chase, MD-based company that operates sports and entertainment facilities and youth sports events. Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. was founded to purchase undermanaged and underperforming ice rinks to bring professional management and badly needed capital to 20-30 year old rinks to save the facilities and provide a safe and fun environment for the local community. We have subsequently expanded in junior hockey ownership to provide our facility participants a pathway to college hockey.
