Rocket City United


Check out some of our local sports teams while you’re in Huntsville.


Did you know Huntsville is a hockey town? Well, we are! Cheer on our professional team, the Huntsville Havoc or, on the college level, the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s (UAH) Chargers. Both teams take to the ice at the Von Braun Center. Hockey is a favorite local pastime that makes up a defining part of Huntsville’s culture. There are family-friendly activities before and during the games, and the team mascots are always crowd-pleasers.

Huntsville Havoc is a member of the Southern Professional Hockey League and the UAH Chargers team is part of NCAA Division I.


Football in the South is a tradition – there's no doubt about that. Huntsville has its own share of football teams to cheer on, including:


The Huntsville Speedway is a quarter-mile track in south Huntsville that holds races for stock and modified cars. Many racing legends had early career wins on this track, including Richard Petty.

Roller Derby

Enjoy a nontraditional sport outing and watch Alabama’s first all-girl, flat-track derby skating league – the Dixie Derby Girls.
