The Cambridge Blues are the University’s men’s varsity squad. They compete in BUIHA Division 1 South (checking), which is the top tier for University ice hockey in Britain.
The season consists of a league format cup competition that runs from November until March. The Blues also enter Tier 1 of the Universities National Championships. The Blues squad trains on ice on Sunday evenings at Planet Ice in Peterborough, in addition to three weekly fitness sessions.
The Blues’ season is marked by two important highlights. The first is a trip to Zuoz, Switzerland, where they train up to four times a day and play matches against local teams on perfect outdoor ice at the Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz. The second is of course the annual varsity match against their arch-rival, the Oxford University Blues. This fiercely competed contest is steeped in history and has an intensity like no other.
