Women's Club Ice Hockey 2020

Who We Are:

Pitt Women's Ice Hockey is a team of passionate students that are excited for the ability to play a high level of hockey this season. We will be playing in the College Hockey East League and the American Collegiate Hockey Association's Women's Division II.  We are very proud members of Pitt Women’s Ice Hockey’s team and are looking forward to building on the successes of last year, and making a push to Nationals this season is Dallas, Texas.

We are thankful for our exceptional and passionate volunteer coaches, Jim Napoli, Ron Walkowski, Doug Rakoczy, and Jared Kapustik, whose enthusiasm for hockey will push us and our team to new heights. We are excited to show the City of Champions what we’re made of! 

Our Project:

We work hard, physically and mentally, whenever we step on the ice, but getting this team off the ground financially is a mountainous obstacle in and of itself.

We are asking for your support to raise funds for fundamental supplies that keep our team operating: home-ice for games/practices, uniforms, league and insurance dues, travel expenses, referee/EMT costs, and our hopeful trip to Nationals. 

How Can You Help?

There are plenty of ways you can support Pitt Women’s Ice Hockey! Donations, sharing our link, spreading the word, and cheering us on as we go into the rest of our season will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to email our fundraising coordinator, Cierra Lutz, at CRL78@pitt.edu.

How donating through EngagePitt works: Every donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law (you will receive a receipt) and 100% of the proceeds go directly to Pitt Women’s Ice Hockey. You can donate using one of the pre-determined levels, or choose your own amount. 

We look forward to interacting with you and keeping you up to date as the season and our campaign progress!

“Oops I Did it Again” Goal

The spectacular game-winning goal scored in this shootout by Jocelyn Lamoureux-Davidson was a remarkable ending to this gold medal game. Jocelyn would later tell the media that deke was practiced over and over again and even had a name – her and her sister called it “Oops I Did It Again” after the Britney Spears song. This golden goal donation will cover over ⅔ of a player’s ACHA dues for the year!
