Syracuse University Men’s Ice Hockey would like to express an interest in your future as a student-athlete. Syracuse provides a combination of superior academics coupled with an outstanding hockey program for those that are interested in continuing their competitive hockey careers at the collegiate level. The Syracuse University Hockey Team is a member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Division I level. The team competes in the Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League (ESCHL) alongside the University of Delaware, Drexel University, New York University, the University of Rhode island, and Stony Brook University.

The team consists of approximately 28-30 junior, prep school, and top-level high school players from across North America and the rest of the world.  Many are recruited, but a portion of the roster is made up of walk-on athletes who are selected in a tryout that takes place early in the Fall semester. Funding for team equipment, apparel, travel accommodations, and game costs is covered by Syracuse University, player dues, and fundraising. 

SU Hockey plays approximately 30-35 games per season - much like an NCAA program. Games are played from early September to mid-February and conclude with a conference playoff tournament. If qualified for, the ACHA National Tournament is typically played in Mid-March. The team practices three times per week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings. All home game and practices are held at the Tennity Ice Pavilion - a modern on-campus facility.

Prospective players are encouraged to fill out a recruiting form using the link on this page.


Thank you for your interest in our University and hockey program.
