The Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Hockey is an ACHA Division 2 Southeast Region club hockey league in the east coast of the USA.

Format[edit]

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.

Of the ten member schools, nine compete at the Division I level of NCAA and one at Division III.
