The Friends of UNH Hockey is excited to kick off the 2014-2015 Membership Drive. The support of our Members is a large part of our annual fundraising. The Board of Directors for the Friends and the UNH Men’s Hockey Team thank you for your continued support.

This year we have added a new level of membership, to accommodate individuals who are interested in making a larger gift we have added an Individual Coaches Club Membership for $90.00 an individual egts access to all the benefits of the standard four person Coaches Club Membership.

We have one other important change for this year, in order to help ensure the security of your information we will no longer be able to take your Credit Card Payment at the Friends Booth during games. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you’ll understand that we have your best interests at heart.

Not to worry though we stay have plenty of ways for you to sign up!

  • If you are a past member you should receive a sign-up form in the mail you could simply fill that form out and send it in.
  • You can go to our giving portal here and sign-up online.
  • You could stop by the Friends Booth on game night where we will have friendly volunteers available to help  you to register.

This year we are continuing to utilize the UNH Foundation’s Giving Page as our portal for taking on-line registrations. The process is easy but as in the past there are a few things to pay attention for-

  1. When you get to the giving portal you will need to be sure that your gift amount is equal to or greater than (Thanks!) the level of membership you intend to sign up for.
  2. If you would like one or more of your family members to receive emails from the Friends you could indicate so by adding their email address into the “Comments, questions or special instructions for your gift” field.
  3. If you would prefer that we mail you your materials please indicate that in the “Comments, questions or special instructions for your gift”

The Golf Committee is pleased to announce that they have secured a date for the 2015 Friends of UNH Hockey Golf Tournament. The tournament is the principle fundraiser for the UNH Men’s Hockey Team and is always a great day filled with golf, friendly competition, camaraderie and lobster. Special contests include a Hole in One prize and a Closest to the Pin hole. We hope you’ll save the date and join us this summer. Check back on our website as more details will be posted in the coming months.


As a member of the Friends of UNH Hockey you are by definition a Representative of Athletic Interests.  The NCAA has strict rules governing the actions of members of booster clubs when it comes to their interaction with student athletes and prospective student athletes. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with the following guidelines to ensure that your actions do not violate the NCAA’s regulations and therefore negatively impact UNH’s Athletic Programs. If you are ever in doubt about the permissibility of your actions it is always best to Ask Before You Act by contacting the UNH Compliance Office.
