About the Friends of UNH Hockey

Founded in 1972, the mission of the Friends of UNH Hockey is to promote, support and enhance the UNH Hockey program. The goal may be fundraising, but the Friends are really about family and fun.

It all began over 40 years ago in the old Snively Arena. A small group of fans would gather following the games to socialize, mingle with the players and parents waiting outside the locker room and enjoy one another's company before heading home for the evening. That small group of fans and volunteers had become a significant and dedicated fundraising group and an integral part of the success of the UNH Hockey program.

A twenty-one member Board of Directors coordinates the fund raising activities, including the annual membership drive, the golf tournament, merchandise sales and the ever popular 50/50 raffle. And directs the disbursement of funds raised for the hockey team.
