In mid-November 1996, when the Oswegatchie was frozen over, and as the last hour of daylight crept over campus, a few Ranger School students ventured onto the ice to skate and shoot some pucks. Later, under a full moon and some street light, a night-time game got started. Ranger School hockey was born.
The hockey club is open to any student enrolled at the School who wants to learn and play the game. Skill levels vary from beginner to expert. Faculty and staff members, some alumni, and a few local residents also play with the group. We play at local arenas, usually once a week, from mid-October to early March. Since 1999, the Ranger School Alumni Association has challenged the current Class to a tournament competition, the highlight of the season.
