The ERAU Ice Hockey Clubhas been around for 12 years and has developed a following that rivals all the other sports on campus. We currently compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (Division III). We are doing everything we can to make our presence known on campus and were recently recognized by the school for an award of excellence.
The team is expanding as a whole and our major emphasis this year will be on the acquisition of team sponsors, keeping player fees low, getting the school and community more involved, and maintaining a web presence. The team, in cooperation with the Student Government Association, is looking for ways to expand the team's presence by continuing to air games through EaglesFM and looking to televise game via the internet and the SGA sponsored Riddle Vision TV Station.
We have historically drawn 400 to 500 spectators at each home game. We are trying to improve attendance every year by increasing the campus and community support for our team. The Daytona Ice Arena can hold 1,000 people, and we intend to fill it to capacity this year.
