San Diego State University

Carry the Tradition of SDSU Men’s Ice Hockey into the Future

Hockey Pedigree:

The San Diego State Men’s Ice Hockey Club Team dates back to 1972 and has been a rich part of the fabric of the Aztec and San Diego sports communities.

Throughout the almost 45-year history of the team, hundreds of different players have contributed to the growing prestige of the program. Over the years, the team has won a National Championship at the Division III level and has received countless bids to the American College Hockey Association (ACHA) Division II regional tournament.

Maintaining Success:

The new group of student-athletes is attempting to carry on the great tradition of ice hockey in Southern California. The current team, under Head Coach Phil Bateman, has started an Alumni Association with the sole purpose of giving back to the Aztec family, maintaining ties between current and past players, and promoting the game of hockey in Southern California.

On the ice, the tradition of Aztec hockey is pushing to reach new levels by modernizing and continuing to legitimize the program. We made tremendous strides toward this goal last season by becoming one of the premier club programs in California. We achieved the highest national ranking of all qualified California teams, narrowly missing out on a bid to the national tournament.

Off the ice, our student-athletes strive to achieve the highest academic standards. Our areas of study are diverse ranging from business finance and psychology to mechanical and aerospace engineering, computer science, and biochemistry. The overall goal is to make sure we are developing well-rounded Aztec student-athletes who will branch out after graduation and continue the strong tradition of the Aztec family.

Fundraising is an enormous part of what helps our team achieve excellence, which is why we are asking for the support of our alumni, family, and friends. This crowdfunding campaign will assist with the overall function of the program including travel budget, player memberships, facility costs, and equipment.
