Lake Superior State ACHA Women’s Hockey

Welcome

2020 marks the Inaugural season for Lake Superior State University’s Women’s club hockey. The team will join the ACHA, Which is the National Governing Body for Non-NCAA Collegiate Hockey throughout the United States.  Lake State’s club hockey will compete against an assortment of teams such as Central Michigan, Northern Michigan, Concordia (MI) and Michigan State. The team believes in commitment to serve and improve themselves, the team, school, and the community. This is a great opportunity for students to fulfill their dreams of playing college sports.

Our Mission

The mission of the Club Sports Program is to attract and retain students to Lake Superior State University while providing an organized, safe, competitive arena for students to participate in sport. Club sports are designed to foster skills such as discipline, commitment, critical thinking, confidence, passion, trust, resiliency, team-work, social and personal growth.  A gateway of pride is recognized for Lake Superior State University on campus, in the greater Sault Ste. Marie community, and in the cities of which the sports teams travel.

“I am beyond ecstatic to be offered this opportunity to be a part of this ground-up program at LSSU. I look forward to the challenge of creating a competitive team but more importantly helping young people develop on and off the ice. This is going to help draw more positive nation-wide attention to the University and give the students a great college experience.” Matt Parker, LSSU Women’s ACHA Head Hockey Coach.

“Coach Kaunisto’s biggest strength is his wealth of knowledge of the game and the ability to teach hockey skills and systems to his players. He also has an honest, compassionate, direct communication style that players respect and appreciate. Along with being the Head Coach of the men’s program he will also assist the women’s hockey program with scouting, recruiting, campus visits, and practice planning execution.” Ruthann Cantile, LSSU Director of Club Sports.

“I am very excited to be able to stay in the game of hockey and to help the student-athletes continue to grow both on and off the ice. I am also looking forward to be able to grow the sport of hockey in my hometown that helped make me the person I am today. I am looking for student-athletes that strive to push themselves to be better in the classroom as well as on the ice.” Steve Kaunisto, LSSU Men’s ACHA Head Hockey Coach.
