Competition & Commitment
The ACHA DIII Pacific Division is a very competitive and made up of approximately thirty teams that cover most of the mid-west and western states. Players participating at this level usually have a multiple years of competitive hockey experience in the past at the youth and high school level. Most times during the season players will be on the ice two to four times each week in practice sessions and games.
The overall success of the team and organization is dependent on the commitment of each player to the scheduled on and off ice sessions. In order to continue to develop our program, fulfill our mission statement, and have success on the ice, each player needs to be able to commit to the level of participation that is described in the organizational guide. Please contact the General Manager with any questions. .
