OVER $100,000 RAISED FOR HOCKEY SCHOLARSHIPS

A HISTORY OF ‘HOCKEY ON THE HILL’
The SFU Men’s Hockey program originally competed in the late 60’s and early 70’s, but was resurrected in 2004 with the goal of one day recruiting top college athletes and providing another alternative for the many local athletes that travel to the United States to compete and go to school. Today, the SFU team recruits top-level Junior hockey players and competes against BCIHL, CIS, and NCAA Division 1 programs.
