It continues into the winter where the team performs at numerous basketball games. Also, at least once a year the team attends a collegiate dance team competition. In the spring, dancing at the annual Funtastic Dance Follies is an exciting way to end the year. Try-outs are held at the beginning of Fall Semester and again at the beginning of Spring Semester.

Men's BSU Club Hockey

Advisor: Doug Leif

Description: The purpose of men’s club hockey is to allow students who have played competitive hockey in the past to continue so with a smaller commitment. Club hockey operates usually from the end of September through the end of February. We practice two days a week, and play most weekends that do not fall during a school break. Our seasons normally consist of around twenty games. We try to get as many at home as possible, but we do find our selves on the road often. Try outs are held at the beginning of the season and the team consists of around 18 players. Although, we do allow those who do not make the team to practice with us throughout the course of the season for a small fee.
