The CBR Team
The Charleston Blockade Runners (CBR) underwater hockey team was founded by Pat and Lynn Harris in 1993. At that time, there were six players that would frequently visit the bar Mustangs in the Avondale neighborhood of Charleston, SC. Although Mustangs may not be around anymore, a number of the original members still play! CBR has always been a team of both men and women of all ages. Our weekly practices are recreational pick-up scrimmages.
The CBR team name derives from the Civil War blockade runners. Light-weight and fast, these Confederate boats would sneak past Union ships in the Charleston harbor to transport cargo such as food and ammo.
