2020 marked the rebirth of Lake Superior State University’s club hockey program. Our teams joined the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) which is the National Governing Body for Non-NCAA Collegiate Hockey throughout the United States. The Lakers have a Division II AND Division III team and they compete against a number of teams such as Adrian, Bowling Green State University, Central Michigan, Concordia (MI), Concordia (WI), Ferris State, Michigan State, Northern Michigan, Purdue, Trine, and among many others throughout the Great Lakes region. We are committed to serve and improve ourselves, the team, the school, and the community. Our program is a great opportunity for students to fulfill their dreams of playing college sports while experiencing a superior environment.
Our mission is to attract and retain students here at LSSU who have a vested interest in becoming a well-rounded student-athlete as well as learning how to be a great role model for the generations to come and teaching those what it means to be a “Laker”.
The American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) is the national governing body for non-NCAA college hockey. It is the only non-NCAA college hockey partner recognized by USA Hockey. This allows member teams and athletes to be covered by USA Hockey insurance and other USA Hockey benefits. The ACHA teams compete against one another for season standings and the top teams in each division participate at the ACHA Nationals in Massachusetts in 2021.
