The University, under the umbrella of Aztec recreation, has a core mission to promote safety, respect, professionalism, integrity, wellness, and excellence. San Diego State University Men’s Ice Hockey is designed to develop a total student experience in education, community service, excellence, leadership, growth, life skills, and preparation for life after university and hockey. We maintain a philosophy that mirrors the Aztec Recreation standards of excellence. Our ice hockey program is led by a dedicated coaching staff with over thirty-five years of hockey experience. Each member of the coaching staff holds each athlete to the highest standards in the classroom, at the rink, and within the Aztec community. The ice hockey program acts as a vessel for current and future student-athletes who strive for the highest levels of play, and academics while attending the San Diego State University.
