Air Force Falcons Hockey Conference
The Air Force
Falcons play Division I college hockey in the Atlantic Hockey Association and every year face off against many of the top
teams in the NCAA. The AHA was established in 2003 as a hockey only conference and prior to that many of the teams in the
conference had been a part of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference since 1997. The AHA is made up of eleven schools: the
American International College, the Air Force Academy, the United States Military Academy, Canisius College, Bentley University,
College of the Holy Cross, Niagara University, Mercyhurst University, Robert Morris University, Sacred Heart University, and
Rochester Institute of Technology. Robert Morris emerged as the conference tournament champion last season after taking down
Canisius by a score of 7-4 at the Blue Cross Arena during the 2014 championship game. This year Robert Morris will undoubtedly
be targeted by every other team in the conference who will be looking to knock off the defending champs. Every game in the
AHA is a heated battle with many teams having long histories of facing off against one another in big games. If you are looking
for top tier college hockey you have come to the right place in the AHA.
This year the Air Force
Academy will be looking to make their way back to the NCAA Tournament after missing out on the postseason the last two years.
Long time head coach Frank Serratore has proven time and time against that he is one of the best in all of college hockey
and knows all of the right calls to make. Senior defenseman Dan Weissenhofer will undoubtedly be leading the Falcons on the
ice and will do whatever it takes to help get the team back to the NCAA Tournament during his final year at Colorado Springs.
Most hockey players at Air Force are committed to go on and serve their country and very few go on to play professional hockey
so for most of the athletes their time at Air Force is the pinnacle of their hockey career. This makes for an amazingly motivated
squad that is always capable of pulling off some big wins year after year.
in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding college
hockey and Air Force Falcons fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NCAA. On game day at Cadet
Ice Arena, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer and
closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and the
excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful slapshots, and
tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class college hockey. By the time the final
buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be
planning a return trip.
The Air Force Falcons have participated in the NCAA Tournament five times,
most recently in 2012. They have won their conference tournament four times including an impressive three-peat which they
accomplished from 2007 through 2009. The Air Force Falcons have twice been conference regular season champions, in 2009 and
