From humble beginnings, UCO Hockey has worked to establish itself among the elite in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). For the past 17 years, UCO Hockey has climbed the ranks to become a perennial national championship contender in the ACHA. The 2022-2023 season presents a familiar opportunity – win the program’s third ACHA National Championship.
The Broncho Hockey Team has maintained a top 10 national ranking over the course of the season and is well positioned to make a run for that goal. With only a few weeks before nationals, the Bronchos look to finish strong and build off their memorable 2022 season where they fell short in the championship game.
Although one of the most attended and popular sports on campus, hockey at UCO is a club sport. Due to the club nature of the program, the team is responsible for fundraising 85% of their operating budget, which includes travel to the 2023 ACHA National Tournament in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Your gifts go directly to the team to provide additional support for equipment and travel costs.
The UCO Hockey Program is operated on a 100% volunteer basis, which includes head coach Michael Rivera and assistant coach Brandon Harley. Both coaches are UCO alumni and won a national championship during their time at Central. Currently, the dedicated coaches work full-time jobs in addition to their roles as volunteer coaches.
UCO Hockey has won four conference championships, competed in four final-four berths, and played in 12 national championship tournaments. With your help, Central can add more banners to the Broncho Barn rafters in 2023.
