Founded in 2003, The Oklahoma Hockey team gives young student athletes a chance to pursue their higher education, as well as playing quality college hockey. Oklahoma Hockey is classified as a club team that competes in the division I level of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). Although the team is classified as club, we do not operate similar to the way that other OU clubs operate. Our athletic conference is different from the standard Big 12 that most Oklahoma fans are used to seeing. The team attracts players from all over the continent, with members on the roster hailing from Los Angeles, CA, all the way to Montreal, QC, Canada. OU hockey competes in the Western Collegiate Hockey League (WCHL) which consists of schools from Tucson, Arizona to Fayetteville, Arkansas. There is a national tournament in March every year that moves around the country with this year's being hosted in Columbus, Ohio.
Our goal is to raise a portion of the funds that it takes for us to take trips to our away games. The campaign goal is $4,000. The Oklahoma hockey team tries to play the most competitive schedule possible to measure our team against the nation’s best. Playing the nation’s best requires the team to travel to play other schools, some close and some far. The last year that the team played saw us travel to places like Columbus, OH, Minot, ND, Ames, IA, and Tempe, AZ. Travel expenses such as meals on the road are provided through the fees that each player pays and donations. Most trips require overnight accommodation which is also included in the fees. Oklahoma hockey is eager to play the most competitive schedule possible to to bring OU a national championship. Without fundraising for travel expenses, we could not have the ability to travel to our away games to compete.
