ROWAN TEAM INFORMATION

The Rowan University Men's Ice Hockey program has enjoyed many successful seasons since its inception in the 1970's. Over the past eight years the program has evolved into one of the top programs in the region under the guidance of Head Coach John Caulfield, Associate Head Coach Mike Husek, and Alan Weiner. The team won the league championship in 2008 and has continuously been nationally ranked in the Southeast Region. The program has offered numerous students the opportunity to continue playing competitive hockey while also pursuing their degree at one of the most academically renowned schools in the region.

The ice hockey program at Rowan is very competitive and is operated like an NCAA varsity program. The team is professionally managed and the athletes conduct themselves with dignity. The team plays up to 35 games during the season and travels to all away games on a

Rowan University charter bus. The team carries a roster of 26 players, with players coming from many backgrounds, including midgets, Junior level teams, and other colleges. The program has attracted players with experience playing in Canada and Europe.

The team plays all home games at Hollydell Ice Arena in Sewell, NJ, approximately five minutes from campus. The team has its own locker room facilities at the Arena, featuring individual player stalls, coaches office, showers, skate sharpener, and more.
The program enjoys a wide variety of media exposure, including campus telecasts, University newspaper articles and interviews, local media coverage, and all games can be seen live on RTN network.

The Rowan varsity team is an American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) D-II member and is part of Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey conference. Rowan competes against other Mid-Atlantic and Southeast Division schools such as Penn State, Virginia Tech, Liberty, and UMBC, as well as other teams like William Paterson and Montclair among others. The Mid-Atlantic conference is regarded as one of the nation's top most respected and competitive leagues and continually has teams going to the regional's, including Rowan who made regional's every year since 2011/2012 season. The Mid- Atlantic had nine out of the top fifteen teams ranked regionally and nationally for the past few season.

Rowan Ice Hockey embraces the athletic and educational experience that is an integral component of the academic mission of the University. For current students hoping to join the team, the coaching staff typically extends an invitation to join the team for a practice, thus allowing the prospective player to experience hockey at the college level. This invitation is reserved to applicants who are applying to Rowan University and have been in contact with the caching staff. The most

important factor in deciding where to play is selecting a school that fits both your academic and athletic needs and wants. The Rowan University Ice Hockey staff encourages players to examine and evaluate the University's academic programs and resources before making their final decision.
