CGA is off to a fast 6-0 start, though the majority of the games were on the road. Today marks the 3rd PPD contest of the year, tonight’s game was postponed due to a weather based rink closure in Maine. We will continue to look for an opportunity to reschedule the game(s).

Saturday @ Sacred Heart (1930 start at the Wonderland of Ice in Bridgeport CT) and Sunday at home vs Springfield College (1700 @ Dayton Arena in New London CT) are the remaining games before Thanksgiving Break.

The team appreciated all of the support last weekend in Tarrytown and Midtown Manhattan and looks forward to seeing more of you over this weekend.

About our Program:

The United States Coast Guard Academy is one of five Military Service Academies. As a Service Academy, we focus on recruiting student athletes with strong moral character and leadership skills to produce Commissioned Officers in the United States Coast Guard. In addition to the four year top notch education, every student will spend approximately 10 weeks each summer honing their leadership skills and spending time side by side with active duty Coast Guard members completing our everyday missions.

Summers are memorable with travels and adventures that take students all over the globe.  While at the Academy, time is highly regimented, but students graduate with a Bachelor’s of Science with a heavy emphasis on math, science, engineering, and commissioning as an Ensign with associated service in the US Coast Guard for the next five years. Graduates from our institute, hockey players included, have pursued notable careers in various Coast Guard missions such as aviation; operations afloat and ashore, engineering, law, environmental protection, communications, intelligence, and computer information and technology.

Our hockey program is an ACHA Division III member school, playing in the North East Collegiate Hockey Association (NECHA-South Division). The team generally plays a 20-25 game season, traveling to states all around the New England area, playing schools such as Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Springfield College, the University of New Haven, the University of Connecticut, the Naval Academy, the Merchant Marine Academy and Massachusetts Maritime Academy.  Hockey is one of the more popular sports within the student body of our school, the games are generally well attended, and we are competitive within our league. As a club sport, we are an excellent program for the most competitive hockey player to one who is still honing their skills.

The coaches for the Ice Hockey Team have attended the Coast Guard Academy, played for the team, and are active duty members of the U.S. Coast Guard.  Each coach is part of the faculty or cadet staff and stay involved in the success of each hockey player on and off the ice.  There are very few schools that will have the teacher/staff ratio that you get at the Coast Guard Academy.

The Coast Guard Academy is open for campus visits daily. We have a great admissions staff that can assist you with your application, or can arrange a visit for you to a local Coast Guard Unit.  I also invite you to come to any of our games or practices.

Attending the United States Coast Guard Academy will not just help you take your passion for hockey to the next level but will also give you the opportunity of a lifetime.  Here at the Academy, you can attend a tuition-free school that will set you up for success with a very rewarding career in the United States Coast Guard. I encourage you to learn more about the Academy at www.uscga.edu.

Please be sure to submit your application prior to the January 15th deadline.  The Coaching staff look forward to hearing from you; please feel free to reach out to any of the coaches at the Contact/Recruiting Page.
