ACC College Hockey has dropped it's first pucks for the 2021-2022 Season, but the specter of COVID-19 remains. Players and coaches continue to be tested and quarantined (if positive), regardless of vaccine status. Fortunately, we have had no student-athletes hospitalized for the pandemic virus to date, and will continue to take necessary precautions to ensure player and staff safety.
COVID concerns also caused our M2 fall tournament rink in Charlotte to unilaterally pull the contracted ice a few weeks ago. However, due to the quick work by ACC staff and members, the ACC will hold the M2 Fall Tournament in Northern Virginia at The St. James Sports Complex on the same dates: 12-14 November. We have 11 members attending and nearly twenty games scheduled - NC State and UNC-Charlotte will join our Virginia and Capitol Division Teams and Guest University of Maryland, in our annual showcase. Schedule will be posted shortly on our website. All games with ACC opponents will be considered league games. The Saint James is a world class dual sheet facility. Please come and join us if you find yourself in the area!
Due to short notice on the change of venue, games will not be broadcast, however Pro Hockey News will have a Journalist on site to cover all our games.
Looking forward to seeing ACC M2 Hockey back on the ice for our Annual Fall Tournament. My sincere appreciation to The Saint James leadership for accommodating the extensive ice requirements, George Washington University, and Georgetown University for their support, and all the folks on our staff for pulling the proverbial rabbit from the hat! Hope to see old friends and new faces at the Sports Complex in just one month!
