College Hockey Mid-America (CHMA) is an American Collegiate Hockey Association Division I club ice hockey conference with teams in Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The league was formed in 2006 after members of the now defunct University Hockey League organized the league and moved from the ACHA's Division II to Division I.

Season formatEdit

Every CHMA team plays every other team in a home and away series, producing a league regular season of 14 games. The regular season champion receives an automatic bid to the ACHA Division I National Tournament. Additionally, each year, the league holds single-elimination playoff tournament.

In 2010, season champion Slippery Rock declined their bid to the national tournament.
