The Tri-State Collegiate Hockey League (TSCHL) is an ACHA Division II level ice hockey league. ACHA Division II level consists of players with previous Jr. A, AAA or Midget Major experience, along with high caliber high school experience. The level can range from varsity high school up to NCAA Division III skills, depending on the programs.

History[]

The TSCHL was formed in 2010 and consisted of 8 teams for its first season.

[1]

A number of the league's current members were part of the now defunct Great Lakes Intercollegiate Hockey Association (GLIHA), while others joined from College Hockey East and Midwest Collegiate Hockey League (MCHL). All 10 members currently compete within the ACHA Division II Southeast Region. The league is separated into two divisions for the 2021-2022 season, only the second time it has done so with the other being in 2018-2019.
