Our hockey program is very competitive, with our players playing the game majority of their lives. Our program is part of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) D-II and plays under NCAA rules. Over the course of the season, Rowan plays around 30 regular season games within the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey Association (MACHA) as well as showcase tournaments and other non-league play. The season runs over the course of fall and winter terms with the playoffs starting in late February/early March timeframe. The team has its own locker room facilities and travels to all away games on a Rowan University charter bus.
The current coaching staff is committed 100% over the course of the year and the program is run as a top tier program with a lot of NCAA benefits. Rowan's program is a great opportunity for any player to experience hockey at the next level.
The team currently has two on ice practices a week and also has video days to review games. Practice and travel information can be viewed HERE. The team has a few off ice sessions but we encourage all players to work out off the ice on their own. We do send summer workout programs to prospective players.
The team plays at the Hollydell Ice Arena near the campus.
Because we are a Club Sport, scholarships are not given to any players based on sport however in some cases the university provides financial aid based on scholarly achievements. The team has a partnership with Harrow Sports and offers each player specialized equipment that includes gloves, warmup suits, bags, pants, and others. In addition, each player also receives their jerseys and helmet (goalie helmets excluded).
There has been a number of rules changes for goalies that requires eleven inch pads. (More Info)
