Elevating Vikings Hockey:
The Time to Invest is Now
Step 1: Build a new locker room
Vikings Hockey is the only team out of the 21 NCAA sports Lawrence offers that has its full-time training, practice, and game site off campus. With the program’s success comes growth, and as we have grown, the Lawrence Hockey roster and coaching staff have simply outgrown the space we have designated for the program. The time is now to harness the energy of our community and supporter base, seek investments in a strength of the college, and elevate the program to new levels.
We believe that each student deserves their own stall space in our home locker room—a hockey student-athlete’s home away from campus. By increasing the square footage of the room, our program could add equipment storage, work areas, and a study lounge. With a renovated locker room space, we could appeal to more talented prospective Vikings and field an even more competitive roster. Above all, we could better retain and equip some of our strongest academic achievers to chase success in Lawrence classrooms.
We need your help. We cannot do this alone. This is a seminal moment in the program’s history, in which we can elevate the Vikings Men’s Ice Hockey program at Lawrence University for years to come. Please consider an investment in our young men, coaching staff, and program today.
Step 2: Build a program endowment
Once we reach our locker room project goal, we will shift the focus of our initiative and our sights to the building of an endowment for the Lawrence Vikings Men’s Ice Hockey program. With a profound upgrade to our facility, the need for perpetual funds that support the maintenance, upkeep, and enhancing of the program for future years will become essential. In order to pursue excellence as a program, it is essential that we begin to build an endowment that is invested, grows into the future, and, lastly, distributes a small percentage of its annual earnings that directly benefits Vikings Hockey student-athletes’ recruitment, gear, travel, and overall experience in perpetuity.
