UNC Club Sports & Roma’s Pizza Sponsorship
UNC Club Sports and Roma’s Pizza are working together this year through a sponsorship, which stemmed from our Executive Council members wanting to establish the programs first sponsorship in April of 2014. Roma’s Pizza has been Greeley’s pizza and beer joint since 1988, and is well known as having a fun environment and receives annual awards like: Greeley’s best pizza, take-out, lunch, vegetarian food, and drink specials. All Club Sports athletes will receive special deals throughout the school year, and for our annual awards banquet Roma’s Pizza will cater the event. This is the first full school year for Roma’s Pizza and UNC Club Sports to establish a sponsorship, and are looking forward to supporting each other throughout the year.
Club of the Year: 2016-2017
UNC Club Hockey’s 2016-2017 accomplishments stood out on and off the ice. The team was ranked in the top five most the year and won over 22 games. They we're the first ever Big Mountain Hockey Conference Champions and hosted not only the Mile High Classic but also the Regional Tournament. The team started “Bear for a Day” where youth in the community got a game jersey and pre-game on ice & locker-room experiences. UNC Hockey also promoted awareness, raised money & honored those in our community by hosting Military and Breast Cancer Nights at the Ice Haus. Throughout the year UNC Club Hockey was able to give thousands of dollars back to the community. As well as to a fellow club hockey player from another university who became ill during the season. It’s for these reasons and others why it’s no surprise UNC Hockey was named ACHA Division II Community Service Award Winner for 2016-2017. This award is presented for outstanding contributions to the local community and charitable organizations and representation of the ACHA. Congratulations UNC Hockey on a remarkable 2016-2017 season on and off the ice. Thank you for your first class representation of the University of Northern Colorado and UNC Club Sports!
