Eagles "On Ice" Campaign - help us get to Nationals
The picture above is the 2019-2020 Team. This Team recently defeated the #1 Ranked team twice to earn a strong ranking for the first half of the season. Our current statistics place us 13th in the nation. This team has the leadership, potential, will and the talent to make national recognition a reality for Embry-Riddle Ice Hockey.
The Embry-Riddle hockey team has been in existence for 23 years. This past year we accomplished one of our most ambitious goals: We were ranked for the first time within the top 10 of teams in the American Collegiate Hockey Association's (ACHA) southern division in the 2018-19 season.
This ranking allowed us to be eligible for the regional playoffs in Huntsville, Alabama In March.
While this was a great opportunity for the team, we could not execute on the opportunity due to many factors — including financial support for the trip and the necessary ice time.
This year the team is very competitive and they are competing at a level that will take them to Nationals in Frisco, Texas in March 2020.
We now need your assistance to keep this dream “On Ice” to help your Eagles attain national recognition.
We have started a “Eagles On Ice” Campaign to help offset the cost.
Ice hockey is club sport at Embry-Riddle. As such, the club receives limited financial support from the university and must be primarily funded by student dues. Our players commit up to $1,000 per season to compete in this league, but they still need your support to make it to Nationals. Your tax deductible donation will assist the team with travel, equipment, practice and ice time support.
Our overall fundraising goal is to raise $10,000 in order to travel and prepare for this opportunity. This includes: Ice time, equipment, rental vans, travel, lodging, food, meals and airline tickets.
We ask you to come along on this journey by providing any financial support you feel is appropriate. Your help will have a direct impact on our student-athletes and help to create lifelong memories on our quest to make Eagle Ice Hockey history.
Every donation counts. Our goal is to get enough support to help our students be the best students, citizens and Eagles on Ice. Follow along with our success on our Facebook page.
