The IceMen Maniacs Booster Club is dedicated to enriching the fun atmosphere at IceMen home games and assisting the IceMen players and staff with various on- and off-ice needs, including household goods for apartments and healthy snacks for the locker room. We also help promote IceMen hockey in the community and online via IceMenManiacs.com, the Maniac Message Board, and our official Facebook and Twitter pages.
The club's main source of revenue is the sale of our signature "IceMen mini cowbells," which are available at every IceMen home game for just $5. (You can always find the Booster Club table in the main concourse, just above the front entrance and lobby at the Ford Center.) We sold over 4000 cowbells during the team's first six seasons, and continue to sell dozens at each home game to this day!
The Booster Club organizes and/or promotes a variety of events, including pre-game tailgating parties, summer cookouts, group trips to road games, and exclusive parties with IceMen staff and players. We also promote fan gatherings during the off-season, giving fans opportunities to get together at Otters games, Ellis Park, Swonder Ice Arena, and more!

Meetings & Club Discussion
While major club-related decisions are typically made at official meetings, members also take part in plenty of informal planning and brainstorming online. Most informal club planning and discussions take place in our Members-Only Facebook group, which is separate from our public Facebook page. (The former is for internal club matters, while the latter is for promoting the club and team to the masses.) Additional discussion and information about the latest booster club meetings and events can be found on the Maniac Message Board in the "IceMen Maniacs Booster Club Events & Discussion" thread.

More To Come!
The IceMen Maniacs Booster Club is open to any and all IceMen fans, although only adult members (age 18 and up) are permitted to vote at Booster Club meetings and in Board of Directors elections.
Annual dues are just $5 for an Individual or $10 for a Family. Individual members must be age 18 or older, and each Family membership must include at least one adult age 18 or older. (A single Family membership can include up to 2 adults, plus unmarried children up to age 23 and any other legal dependents who reside at the same mailing address.) Other booster clubs charge as much as $20 to $50 per person, but we want to keep membership affordable so more Maniacs can get in on the fun!
