Ice Hockey[edit]

The UMC Golden Eagles hockey team played at the NCAA Division III level in the MCHA hockey-only conference through the 2008-2009 season. Being a Division II school the university operated the hockey team with no scholarships under Division III guidelines. The University discontinued the varsity hockey program following that season. UMC will honor the financial commitment to the new ice arena built in 2009 in Crookston, Minn. The campus signed a five-year lease beginning in 2010.[2] The university currently fields a club hockey team in the Division 2 American Collegiate Hockey Association.
