Funded entirely through philanthropy, this $2 million project is a complete redesign and layout of the current locker room space. Included in the renovation are custom wood lockers, player lounge, nutrition center, dry locker room, recovery area and state-of-the-art technology with UMass Hockey branding throughout.
"Our locker room renovation is the last phase of the complete overhaul of all UMass Hockey facilities. The locker room renovation will not only be the final step but also the most impressive! The final product will provide our players with first-class amenities and will quickly become one of the premium locker rooms in Division I Hockey. The financial support for this project has been outstanding and I want to thank all of our donors for their support and generosity. I’m very excited about this project in many ways but mostly because our players deserve it. They’ve earned it on the ice, in the classroom, and in the community. They have done everything in a first-class manner and deserve first-class facilities."
- Head Coach Greg Carvel
"Thank you to everyone that donated to fund our locker room renovations. We are so grateful to have such an amazing support system that allows us to succeed everyday. Not only am I thankful, but I’ve learned that one day I will be in position to give back too."
- Assistant Captain Junior Bobby Trivigno
When complete, the locker room will be the latest in a series of facilities enhancements for the Minutemen, complementing the new weight room, renovated athletic training room and video room and branding updates that have all been completed within the past three years.
“Our student-athletes, coaches and staff have made a considerable investment over the last several years to make UMass a household name in college hockey. In turn, our loyal fans and donors have done the same by investing in the student-athlete experience and our future. It has allowed us to provide our program with the top amenities, and I am incredibly grateful for the financial support and commitment that so many have already shown towards this renovation. We strongly believe that when this project is completed, Massachusetts Hockey will own one of the most coveted college hockey facilities in the nation. It will position us well to attract top recruits to our university and provide our players with a home to develop and enjoy a first-class student-athlete experience.”
