About the Club
Cal Poly Hockey Club is a student run team operating through the Cal Poly Club Sports Council. We compete in the Western (WCRHL) division of the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (NCRHA) and the season runs October-April. The season consists of tournaments 1-2 times per month, followed by regionals in March and nationals in April. Regular season tournaments are held in San Jose, Huntington Beach, Santa Barbara, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, and Corona. The National championship tournament is held in Missouri for the '14-'15 season. For more information on the NCRHA, visit this page.
Cal Poly fields 3 competitive hockey teams to play in the league. The top team competes in Division I of the NCRHA and the lower two teams play in Division III, formerly the B-Division. Team captains decide the rosters following tryouts (click for information). Both the Division 1 team (A Team) and the Division III Gold team (B Team) practice 2 times per week throughout the season, while the Division III Green Team (C Team) practices once per week.
All players must be enrolled in at least 9 units at Cal Poly and are limited to 5 years of NCRHA eligibility.
The club receives less than 5% of the necessary funding from Cal Poly and relies on player fees, fundraisers, and donations in order to operate. If you are interested in donating to Cal Poly Roller Hockey Club, please visit our donations page.
History of the Club
The Cal Poly Hockey Club was founded in 1993 and has been competing in the Western Collegiate Roller Hockey League (WCRHL) since 1995. Since then, we have won 4 Regional titles. We consistently finish in the top 8 teams at Nationals every year. Cal Poly Hockey still has not taken home a national title, but recorded a 2nd place finish at the National Championship Tournament in Madison, Wisconson in 2011.
Cal Poly Hockey Club provides hockey players with the ability to play competitive collegiate roller hockey and we set out to put forward the best collegiate hockey team in the country. Though we believe that academics come before hockey for a Cal Poly student, we believe that a healthy balance between school, hockey, and life can be achieved. It is important to remember that hockey is a game and through the competitive nature of the sport, we sometimes lose the aspect of fun. In the wise words of the great, triple-deking Gordon Bombay, "let's have fun out there."
