UD to Host 2014 ACHA National Hockey Championships

ACHAMen’s Division I National Championship
March 6-11, 2014

Women’s Division I & II National Championships March 13-16, 2014

The University of Delaware will again host the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) National Men’s and Women’s Championships in 2014. The 2014 Men’s Division I Championship will be held March 6-11, 2014  and the Women’s Division I and Division II National Championships will be held March 13-16, 2014.

The University of Delaware Hockey programs and the UD community are pleased to once again welcome the ACHA tournament. Hoping to build on the successful 2011 championship tournament held in Newark and with the addition of the Women’s tournaments, UD will have an opportunity to highlight the university programs as well as show-off the surrounding community.

Both tournaments will be held at the University of Delaware’s Fred Rust Arena and the Gold Ice Arena. The single elimination men’s tournament will consist of 20 teams, each made up of 20-25 players. The Women’s Division I tournament takes the top eight teams and splits them into two pools that eventually meet in the  championship round. The Women’s Division II tournament also uses a round-robin format for the preliminary round.  A total of 16 women’s teams participate.
