UNC Hockey Experience

In joining UNC hockey, you will be part of an elite group of student-athletes in one of the nation’s premier educational institutions. The UNC hockey team has seen tremendous success over its long history. Most recently, the Tar Heels were the ACCHL Premier South Division Champions, ACHA Southeast Regional Finalists and won the Governor’s Cup beating in-state rivals NC State University.

Our players annually compete on big stages such as PNC Arena, home to the Carolina Hurricanes (NHL), where our fan attendance has consecutively been in the thousands. In addition, the Tar Heels competed in the Frozen Finley outdoor game in 2023 where the players got a chance to play in front of 24,000 fans!

Our program is one of the most historic in the country and since UNC is one of the best institutions in the country, our players can tap into an expansive and extremely successful alumni network. Due to the vast amount of programs UNC offers, we have alums in various industries such as, investment banking, consulting, law, healthcare/biotech, who are working at companies such as Bank of America, Deloitte, Intel, Genentech and Amazon.
