The University of South Florida Ice Bulls club hockey team is currently seeking sponsors for their 2013-2014 season.
USF is a well-known and valued member of the Tampa Bay community and your association with the Ice Bulls will project a positive image to the public and increase your visibility in the area. Your business will be associated with a team with a long history of success both on and off the ice.
The Ice Bulls are a division III team in the American Collegiate Hockey Association and have a strong winning tradition. The team has been in existence for twenty-three years. They initially played in the now defunct College Hockey South and joined the ACHA in 2003. Between 1998 and 2004, the Ice Bulls won the College Hockey South championship four times.
The team finished the 2011-2012 season ranked 4th in the southeast division of ACHA, making the regional tournament.
The Ice Bulls maintain their winning attitudes off the ice by involving themselves in the community. We believe that it is important to extend ourselves beyond merely playing hockey and our players have logged over 1,000 hours of community service in past seasons, contributing to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Metropolitan Ministries, John Knox Village, Vincent Lecavalier Foundation, St. Jude’s Hospital, Toys for Tots and Susan G. Komen. Players have also donated time to work with local youth hockey teams.
In 2010, the team raised $1,500 for Madison Goss, a five- year-old little girl who lived in Atlanta. She has suffered from a rare form of cancer. The funds also supported other pediatric cancer related charities through the Madison Goss and Friends Pediatric Cancer Tournament. The tournament was held Jan. 14-16, 2011 in Ellenton, FL.
The Ice Bulls are a non-profit 501©(3) organization and all donations are fully tax-deductible.
