MACHA Cancels 2020-2021 Season due to COVID-19

Posted on: December 8th, 2020 by uwmhockey

 

MACHA Cancels 2020-2021 Season due to COVID-19

 

The Mid-American Collegiate Hockey Association has canceled the remainder of the 2020-2021 season.

 

The MACHA board met virtually on Sunday, December 6th, and voted unanimously to cancel the remainder of the season and allow the conference and its teams to focus on preparation toward the 2021-2022 season.

 

The board had originally suspended conference play prior to the Fall semester with hopes that conditions would allow a reduced Spring semester schedule to follow.

 

“Only a handful of our member teams had stated they would be able to play in the Spring,” stated MACHA President Larry Taylor.  “The decision was not what we wanted to make, but with many known and unknown concerns, it really was the only decision to make.  We look forward to the 2021-22 season.  We’ve added several more ACHA programs to the conference.  This will bring our total amount of teams to over 40.”

 

The Mid-American Collegiate Association is one of the oldest, largest, respected, and most competitive conferences in the American Collegiate Hockey Association.

 

For more information, please contact Board Secretary Michael Hernbrott at mhernbrott@gmail.com.

MACHA teams voted unanimously to suspend 2020-2021 league games until January 2021.  All teams should attempt to reschedule league games in 2021. If two schools are playing in the fall semester and unable to schedule in the spring semester, they can play league games in the fall semester.

 

If needed, teams can play one 4 point game with standings to be on points percentage versus wins and losses.

 

League playoffs are tentatively scheduled for March 5-8; however, this date may change.

 

Regionals are to be determined.
