OverviewEdit

"Dinosaurs" is the name of the sports teams of the University of Calgary located in Calgary, Alberta or, for fans of the "Dinos", the Town of Bedrock. Their home arena is the Father David Bauer Arena. They are members of the Canada West Universities Athletic Association (CWUAA) and Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS).

In 1945 the University started as a campus of the University of Alberta and was variously referred to as the “Univeristy of Alberta at Calgary”, the “Univeristy of Alberta-Calgary”, and the “Univeristy of Alberta (Calgary)”. In 1966 it became its own separate university.

The Dinosaurs came back to life in 1964-65 in the old WIAA. One difference between Calgary and many other western universities is that they never competed at the senior or junior levels prior to joining the university ranks. They did, however, play in the 1967-68 Alberta Senior Playoffs for the first half of the season.

In that 1964-65 campaign, the Dinos registered a 0-12-0 record to finish last in a four team conference behind the University of Manitoba, the University of Alberta, and the University of Saskatchewan. All of those were well-established hockey programs at the time. In fact, Manitoba won that year's University Cup. The Dinos followed with 0-12-0 in 1965-66 and 0-16-0 in 1966-67, when the University of British Columbia rejoined the league.

When the WIAA split in two following the 1971-72 season, the University of Calgary became a founding member of the CWUAA, along with the University of Saskatchewan, University of Victoria, University of British Columbia, and University of Alberta. Victoria has since departed and a GPAC merger and new programs have added new CWUAA opponents at the University of Manitoba, the University of Regina, University of Lethbridge, and Mount Royal University.

Things did progress such that Calgary won the 1974 conference title. Despite growth of the CWUAA over the years, the Dinos continued to be part of the "Big Four" pretty much every year, along with Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
