The Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey Association (MACH) is a college ice hockey league based in the Southeastern region of the United States. The conference is part of the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division 2 and is made up of eight teams from colleges and universities based in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

Format[]

Each team plays every team in their division twice throughout the season. Only divisional games are counted towards standings. The four teams from each division with the most points at the end of the season qualify for league playoffs. The two divisional playoff champions meet to determine the league championship. League and non-conference games are taken into consideration to qualify for the ACHA Division II Regional & National Tournaments.

Member Clubs[]

Of the eight member schools, six compete at the Division I level of NCAA and two at Division III. Stevenson University joined the conference in 2017 following the launch of its own club men's ice hockey program.[1]
