UC Davis Ice Hockey is a club team that competes in Division 2 of the American Collegiate Hockey Association. Founded in the early 80s, the team has a long history playing against teams from around the area. The Aggies generally take players looking to continue playing ice hockey at a high level after graduating high school or transferring from another college. The team is run by and for the players, and is self-funded.
Over the years, the success of the team has varied widely, from winning the PCHA to making regionals. The team is always motivated, excited, and ready to play for a full season—a season which goes from October to early March. Over the course of the two quarters, the Aggies play around 20 games and look to get the best possible record in attempt to make regionals, the tournament where teams from the Pacific division compete in a shot at going to nationals.
The Aggies take on local teams, including Santa Clara University, Santa Rosa Junior College, San Francisco State University, Stanford University, and UC Berkeley among others.
In recent years, the Aggies have been fairly successful in the PCHA, finishing in first place in the regular season twice. For the 2015-2016 season, with the PCHA having disbanded, the Aggies look to make regionals for the first time in 3 years.
The Aggies' home rink is Vacaville Ice Sports, located at 551 Davis St. in Vacaville, CA.
