Every year the Miami University Club Hockey Team holds open try-outs
in September. All registered Miami Students (or Miami Hamilton Students)
who are enrolled in a minimum of 9 credit hours and possess at least a
2.0 cum GPA are eligible.
We hold an informational meeting during the first week of classes each
year. Traditionally, there is a $20 try out fee that must be paid before
you are able to participate in Drop In Sessions that are reserved for
those trying out for the team. There are 5-7 Drop In Sessions that lead
up to the first day of try outs in order for everyone to get there legs
back from the off season.
Traditionally there are 26 players who make the team, and all returning
players must try out again every year. There is an average of 75 players who try
out each year for the team.
Member dues are traditionally between $350-$400 per semester and go towards
covering ice bills, referee fees, travel expenses, league dues, and a
minimal equipment budget. The club relies heavily upon fundraising campaigns
and university funding to help balance the operating budget.
Miami Club hockey players come from various leagues. High School Varsity,
Midget AA, Midget AAA, Junior B, and Jr. A are all represented on our
We practice 2-3 days a week after 8pm on the weekdays. A typical schedule
would have around 24 regular season games with 3-4 road trips before playoffs.
We never play over holiday breaks, and follow the university's schedule
to allow all players the ability to go home when other students go home
(ie. Fall Break)
