UCLA Ice Hockey: Get Us to Our Games!

The UCLA Hockey team has been a tradition on campus since 1926. Originally a division 1 program, World War II forced a downsize in the athletic department's budget and resulted in the end of UCLA's status as a division 1 hockey school. The team is now almost entirely player funded and plays in the PAC-8 conference (essentially the PAC-12, but a few schools don't have programs).






Over the past two seasons, our donors have enabled us to transition to a new rink at Pickwick Ice in Burbank and to purchase brand new blue Under Armour jerseys (seen below) after the athletic department signed a new deal with Under Armour. The success the team has enjoyed these past few seasons would not have been possible without your support! 




This year, we need your help with getting our team to its road games. The team will be travelling to Tempe, AZ to play ASU, Spokane, WA to play Eastern Washington University, and to Lake Tahoe, CA in February for the PAC-8 conference playoffs. In all, the team will be travelling over 4500 miles this season. As you can see from the graphic below, travel expenses account for over 1/4th of the budget and limit our ability to invest in ice time. Every dollar raised through this campaign to assist our travel budget directly results in more on-ice practice time for this team. With 15 rookies on the team this year, our ice time is extremely important in developing chemistry and allowing us to reclaim our position as champions of the PAC-8. 



Our players cannot thank you enough for all of your support. Our full schedule can be found on the team website here and new this year, every home game can be watched live on our team Facebook page! It's shaping up to be an exciting year for the Bruins and we hope to see you out with us at Pickwick Ice!
