Women's Ice Hockey
The NMU Women's Club Hockey team was established in 2000. We are a part of the CCWHA (Central Collegiate Women's Hockey Association), which includes Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Western Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Ohio State University, Lindenwood University, and Robert Morris. We are also a part of the ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association). This league includes all the CCWHA teams, as well as others from around the country, and hosts the National Tournament every year.
Dues are about $1200 depending on the number of girls playing. The team does offer opportunities for fundraising and sponsorship. This covers all ice time, league dues, referees and travel costs. In addition, players are expected to purchase warm-ups and pay for their meals on road trips. Members are also required to purchase a PEIF pass for the year.
Participants Must Supply
All of their own hockey equipment: Helmet must be black and the team can help find equipment if needed. Jerseys, pant covers, socks and bags are provided by the team.
Includes Michigan Tech in Houghton, downstate Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, and Minnesota. The team often travels on Fridays, so if possible we recommend that players do not schedule Friday classes. The league requires a cumulative GPA of 2.0 be maintained.
Tuesday, September 2 from 10 p.m. - 11:30 p.m. and Wednesday September 3 from 9 p.m. - 10:30 p.m.
Tryouts are at the Berry Events Center located near the PEIF and Superior Dome. In addition, I have attached the practice and game schedule for the remainder of the 2014-2015 season. It is asked that if you plan to show up please bring your class schedule for the fall, and a work schedule if you have one, so that dryland groups and times can be set up.
Tryouts/cuts will be made immediately following the September 3rd skate if necessary.
