How did we do this past season?

In the Western Collegiate Roller Hockey League our Division I team tied for 3rd place with University of Nevada Las Vegas and took 4th place at our regional event. Our B Gold team placed 2nd place in the WCHRHL and took 2nd place in a heartbreaking overtime nail biter against Arizona State in regional play. Our B Blue team also had a very successful year and took 6th place in the WCHRHL B Division.

Our Division I team and our B Gold Team were invited to play in the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Championships this past April in San Jose. Our Division I team was competitive, but ended up going 1-3 playing against Connecticut, Eastern Michigan, West Point, and Hofstra. Our B Gold team was very successful and made it all the way to the semi-finals and lost a heartbreaker against Central Florida.

Due Fees This Season
$475 for Division I
$425 for B Teams

Here are some BIG changes!

We are pleased to have Coach Anthony Zermeno and Jack Noe as head coaches for our Division I roller hockey season, but don’t worry……Coach Nielsen will still be behind the bench cheering everyone on still. We are very grateful and eager to see what we can accomplish this year.

We have a “Hockey House” again! 6621 Sabado Tarde in IV

We are looking to really branch out into the community and get more communication between ourselves and the leagues going on at Earl Warren Showgrounds.

We will be hosting another clinic in late March with Peter Dale from USA clinics. The clinic is mostly for ages under 18 and is a lot of fun for children and young adults at all skill levels. So make sure to be on the lookout for the clinic in March and make sure to let our young future hockey stars know about the clinic. Remember, they are the future of our sport.

In conjunction with the LA Kings we will be hosting a roller hockey tournament on our campus. This is an event we really wanted to put on this past season, but due to scheduling difficulties we couldn’t fit it in. People can form their own teams, it will cost approximately $35 a player and that cost will INCLUDE a ticket to a Kings game verse either the Anaheim Ducks or the San Jose Sharks! Everyone will get a ticket to the same game at Staple Center and more information will become available as the season progresses. It looks like we will have a lot of interest from our club, San Luis Obispo’s club teams, and our Alumni.

Alumni Game was successful this past year, but we are really going all out this next year to try to get our alumni out. The past Alumni game will be scheduled further away from holidays this year, so there are no excuses not to make it out! The Alumni kicked our butts this past year, but we will see if those “old guys” still got it.
