ALUMNI WELCOME BACK
The origin of Mules ice hockey began in the late 1960’s at the old Ice Palace Rink on Hanover Avenue in Allentown. Back then, the opponents were teams such as Moravian College, Lafayette College, Lehigh University and some local men’s league teams. The beginning days were forged by these young men. Built from a love and desire to play the greatest game on earth, these men built the foundation for what today has become a prospering program. Their desire to succeed and play hockey for THEIR college keeps those that have followed inspired to continue the proud tradition established over forty years ago.
It’s that tradition we wish to honor and maintain. Today, we are proud to wear the same Red and Grey colors the founding Mules pulled over their heads so many years ago. We recognize those men and all those who came after who helped built what today we call Muhlenberg College Ice Hockey.
Muhlenberg Ice Hockey is always looking for ways to keep in contact with its alumni. We are looking to share the memories and experiences that we all had while playing for this team. We would like to share some of those memories with our alumni and other hockey fans on this site as we relive the past and hope for a bright future. If you’re interested in sharing your memories or joining the alumni network, just let us know by submitting your information to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
This year, we will reestablish the annual Alumni Game. It will be held on Saturday, September 22 at our home rink in Allentown, Pa. We welcome ALL former alumni to participate in the game. If you’re interested, please contact former Mule Brad Zatcoff at firstname.lastname@example.org. The games have always been a hit with those that attend.
ALUMNI SUPPORT / FUNDRAISING
ALL our players pay a fee each season to participate. This fee is determined by the amount of support it receives. This support is used to subsidize costs such as ice time, bus transportation and uniforms. Without the generous support of our friends, the program would cease to exist.
If you wish to donate, please contact Dr. William Gryc, the TEAM Advisor at William.Gryc@muhlenberg.edu
The alumni are also invited to support the team in other ways such as organizing events with current players and alumni or connecting players with job and internship opportunities. If you’re interested in helping out, please contact Dr. Gryc.
