It is the only hockey in the Gettysburg area and is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports on campus. The Gettysburg College Hockey team plays in the Great Northeast Hockey Conference (ACHA), in Division II club (non-varsity) hockey. We compete against rivals such as Bucknell, Muhlenberg, Princeton, Univ of Penn, Rutgers, as well as against other major universities in the Mid Atlantic region. Gettysburg is also a member of the national American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA), which is essentially the equivalent of the NCAA for club hockey. Since the Gettysburg area does not have their own ice facilities, home games for the Bullets are played at the York Ice Arena.

As a non-varsity sport, the Bullet hockey team does not receive any funding from the Gettysburg College Athletic Department. We receive some funding from Campus Recreation as a recognized club, but these funds hardly cover our required ice time. The majority of the funding comes from player dues, any fundraising, and generous donations. As we look towards the future of this growing program we also welcome the idea of sponsorships for the Gettysburg College Ice Hockey team. As you well know, ice time is expensive and we try to keep the burden of dues for the players as low as possible, since they already carry the weight of paying for college tuition. The number of practices we have all depends on the funding we receive for the year, and unfortunately sometimes can be minimal resulting in very few practices.

The benefits for you as an individual donating to the Gettysburg College Ice Hockey team are numerous. Some of these include bringing the exciting sport of hockey to the Gettysburg community; giving these students a chance to play the sport they love; Advertisement for your business on our website; and any donation you make can be used as a tax deduction since Gettysburg College Ice Hockey is a recognized non-profit organization. Please help us expand this growing program and take it to the next level.

Some of the best support you can give us is to attend our games and cheer us on. But if you choose to support us by making a donation to the team, we would be very grateful. We thank you for taking the time to read about the Gettysburg College Ice Hockey program and look forward to your possible support in the future. Please contact Coach Esser at eesser@gettysburg.edu if you are interested in more information about the Gettysburg Ice Hockey program or making a donation to the team. Go Bullets!
