The University of Alabama's club hockey D2 team has worked tirelessly this season to have a successful 18-7-1 record which put the team in 3rd place in the College Hockey Federation playoff series.

The Frozen Tide will be traveling to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to compete in the national tournament. The tournament will be starting on Friday, March 10, and goes through March 15. Alabama will be entering the tournament as the 18th seed.

Because hockey is a very expensive sport when it comes to traveling, due to ice maintenance and more, the team is raising $40,000 to help with travel and food costs for 32 athletes. This money would cover bus expenses, hotels, team meals, and anything else needed to support the team, coaches, and staff. Any leftover money will transfer over to next season's budget.

The Alabama Hockey Club started in 2005 and was formed by three students because UA Athletics did not, and still does not, offer a hockey team. The program joined Alabama's Club Sports program that had 40 other teams.

The team has remained successful and exploded in recent years, especially with the expansions of Division 1 and Division 2 teams. The D2 team is part of the College Hockey Federation and plays teams across the south. The CHF wasn't established until 2022 which created a college hockey league with teams across the nation.
