Template[edit]

I have added College Ice Hockey task force to the ice hockey template. If anyone that is handy with graphics could create a small icon the same size as the other task force images that is related to college hockey then I can add an image next to the college hockey link on the template like the other task forces. -Djsasso (talk) 13:47, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

ACHA Articles[edit]

Anybody watching this page? Got an AfD for everybody. Grsz11 04:09, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm here. AfD's aren't really my thing but I'll throw my two cents into the discussion. Kithira (talk) 12:53, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
  • Generally ACHA Hockey articles should be condensed and info merged into the school's main article under athletics or student activities or on the schools atheletics article and then deleted. (It hasnt come up yet but it'd be interesting to see what would happen to an article on one of the higher level ACHA DI teams where some schools consider them varsity club sports like Iowa State, Lindenwood, etc...)--Bhockey10 (talk) 22:52, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
    • Lindenwood is an interesting example, and there may be sufficient third-party sources to make an article. But for the most part, there won't be. I'm a fan of ACHA, I cover my university's team, but it's very unlikely any of them are sufficiently notable. Grsz11 23:00, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Team Templates[edit]

Anyway we would be able to create a new, or edit the current template to be able to include rivalries? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wolfforlife40 (talkcontribs) 05:02, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

MCHA/NCHA[edit]

With the departure of the WIAC schools from the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA), and the remaining men's NCHA teams joining the Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association (MCHA), the MCHA has decided to rename themselves the NCHA and affiliate with the women's NCHA (joining several men's and women's squads under the same conference banner). http://www.uscho.com/2013/04/24/ncha-is-reborn/

How should we handle this with our articles? We can't just rename the MCHA article because we already have an NCHA article.

I would merge the MCHA into the NCHA article. Or the other way around and then rename the other article whichever would be easier. -DJSasso (talk) 14:34, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
That would require us to put the history of both conferences in the same article; that could get even messier, don't you think? Powers T 16:46, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Both are pretty small articles at the moment. But that being said another option would be to leave the MCHA as is and then add new NCHA history to the NCHA page. And then just put a section on the MCHA indicating the rename/merge with the NCHA and indicate with a main article link or something of the sort that history from that point on is on the NCHA page. -DJSasso (talk) 17:14, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
I think that's the best option; if we make sure to use {{main}} on both articles, we should be able to minimize confusion. Powers T 02:47, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

NAIH/USCHA[edit]

On May 15, 2013 the National Association of Intercollegiate Hockey (NAIH) will no longer exist. The Collegiate Ice Hockey Association (CIHA) will form. The awards, the records, past results will be honored by CIHA. National Association of Intercollegiate Hockey (NAIH) and United States College Hockey Alliance (USCHA) will merge to become the Collegiate Ice Hockey Association (CIHA). [1] I suggest change NAIH to CIHA.

Softball project notice[edit]

Hello, everyone. I've recently started the College softball task force, working to help expand Wikipedia's college softball coverage. I thought I'd post a notice around at some of the other college sports projects to give everyone a heads up. If you have an interest in the sport, please consider visiting the project. Thanks, Ejgreen77 (talk) 08:34, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Roster Template TfD's[edit]

A mass TfD that the members of this project may be interested in. See Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2013 July 19#Template:Alaska_Nanooks_men.27s_ice_hockey_roster.

ACHA team articles[edit]

Has there ever been an official policy in place on the notability of ACHA team articles? There seem to be more and more of them (Minot State Beavers men's ice hockey, Rhode Island Rams men's ice hockey, ect.) cropping up over time. Ejgreen77 (talk) 02:17, 28 August 2013 (UTC)
