The Rams consistently rank in the top 20 teams in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). We are a founding member of the toughest league in ACHA, the Western Collegiate Hockey League (WCHL). Members include Arizona State, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado State, Colorado, Missouri State, Oklahoma, and Central Oklahoma. The national champion has come from the WCHL three of the past four years.
In addition to our league schedule, the team also competes against other colleges and universities across the country to complete a schedule of between 35-40 games each season. This schedule includes between four to six road trips. If we qualify, as we did for the 2016-17 season, the team travels to and competes in the ACHA National Championship Tournament.
A preseason camp and open tryouts occur during the first two weeks of school. We typically practice three times per week, always in the evenings to avoid any class conflicts.
Beyond hockey, the program provides students with an excellent opportunity for leadership, responsibility, and quality athletics that will benefit them long after they graduate. Our program is student-led and our student athletes, with the support of the CSU Campus Recreation Office, dedicated coaches, managers, trainers, and interns manage the entire season to include travel, media and advertising, finances, marketing, and more. Beyond the season, the team works closely with the University, groups in the community, and youth hockey organizations to facilitate team events, volunteering and fundraisers to round out the college hockey experience.
