UWL Winter Rec Sports = Hockey, by Ellen Barrett

As winter approaches, it is time for UW-L students to find other ways to be involved outdoors. Fortunately, UW-L is home to various organizations from academic clubs to sport teams.

The UW-L men’s and women’s hockey club teams provide new friends while being involved on campus and outdoors.

The Eagle Women’s Hockey Club is a woman’s only ice hockey team to compete with other club teams across the Midwest. The season runs from October to late February. All skill levels are welcome to play or learn the sport. Practices run twice a week usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a few games on the weekends.

Games are held at the La Crescent Community Arena with free admission for the audience.

The UW-L men’s Hockey club team, as stated on its page, is “a group of dudes trying to have fun and play hockey.”
