UCLA Ice Hockey: Towards Tuition-Free Club Hockey

We need your help Bruin fans!

Thanks to your continued support, the Bruins have had tremendous success making three straight appearances at the ACHA Men's D2 Western Regional Tournament. The team has gained national recognition and is earning its title as one of the most exciting club hockey teams to watch in the country!

The program is an entirely player-funded organization. Unlike other sports that are located on campus, team members must pay high dues to compensate for equipment, league, travel, and practice fees. We aim over the next few years to eventually cover 100% of team dues for all athletes! 

Where will your donation go?

Because of our outstanding fundraising support from last year, we were able to expand to two practices per week. Our budget breakdown has remained the same: 

  1. Ice Time (45%): Since ice is not conveniently located on UCLA’s campus, the Bruins must rent ice time and other respective facilities for practices and games. A 1.5 hour practice slot can cost upwards of $500. With a 30-game season from September through February, ice time makes up the majority of our $100,000 budget. 
  2. Equipment (25%): Players must purchase their own equipment, much of which is not covered by team dues. Our biggest priority is making sure our athletes are equipped with safe and protective gear. 
  3.  Travel (25%): The Bruins compete against teams in states such as Arizona, Utah, and Colorado, which requires a substantial amount of travel-related expenses. This includes: airfare, vehicle transportation, food, and hotel accommodations for a roster of 20 skaters and coaches.
  4. League Fees (5%): Although such fees are a small percentage of the total budget, league payments are required for every participating ACHA program.

Expanding UCLA Hockey's Impact

With your support, we can continue to provide the UCLA community with a competitive collegiate hockey program. Your donation will allow us to expand the accessibility of the club to more students and help grow the sport of hockey in California. Thank you again for contributing to such a vibrant hockey atmosphere for our fans, friends, and families across the nation! 

Go Bruins!
