Adrian College Announces the Addition of a D2 ACHA Team for 2017-18

Adrian College adding an ACHA Division 2 Women's team next season. I was hoping that you can help spread the word within your organization and district. We are hoping to attract players who otherwise might not have gotten an opportunity to play college hockey. The team will start playing 2017-18, and will be fully supported by the Athletic Department.

Our state-of-the-art Arrington Ice Arena is home to some of the best fans in the country. With only 1,700 students on campus, Adrian College is a very comfortable place to study. Our average class size is only 16 students which allows for plenty of 1 on 1 time with professors and hands-on experience with any classroom equipment. While we are a smaller school, we can offer a much more in depth experience for student-athletes on and off the ice, with well over 50% of our students being student-athletes.

MAHA Tier II Girls 05 Update

The MAHA executive board discussed the Tier II National Bound issue with the girls 2005 birth year players. USAH has decided to wait one year before all Tier I and Tier II teams, when rostered, are considered National Bound. Teams at the time they roster in the registry portal for the 2017-18 fall season will have to  check the appropriate box (national bound) to participate in the USA Nationals. All 14U Tier II girls teams that have 2005 players on their rosters are not allowed to check the National Bound box. These teams are also ineligible for MAHA State playoffs.
The MAHA executive board approved allowing these non national bound Tier II 14U girls teams with 05 birth year players on them to participate in league play with the LCMGHL as well as any tournaments they want to attend.
