The MIT Women's Ice Hockey Club was started in 1980. The team split into a varsity and club team starting the in 1999-2000 season. The varsity team joined the ECAC Division III league.
The club team has been a pillar of women's hockey at MIT. It helped forge a varsity team and remains today at almost forty strong. In 2008, the decision to cut 8 varsity sports at MIT was not popular and reduce the options for MIT hockey players as ice hockey was one of those eight. Fortunately both the men and women's team each have strong club teams for students looking to play.
This current 2013-2014 season we are making history again by joining the newly formed Independent Women's Ice Hockey Club League. This is an exciting opportunity full of new challenges and motivations. The new league is comprised of teams from Salem State, Endicott, Westfield, Harvard, Bates, UMass Lowell, Dartmouth, and of course, us. We have played most of these teams in the past few years. The league season runs from the beginning of November to the second week of February, and consists of 14 regular season games (we play each team twice), and then playoffs for the top four teams. Go Tech!
