2022 National Tournament



The 2022 ACHA National Championships will be played from March 10 through March 20, 2022 at the Centene Community Ice Arena in Maryland Heights, Missouri.  The Centene Community Ice Center, which opened in September 2019, is the practice facility for the NHL St. Louis Blues as well as the home of Lindenwood University’s hockey programs.  The ACHA will also utilize the Maryville University Hockey Center in nearby Chesterfield, Missouri, for overflow games and practices.

“St. Louis is such a great location for the ACHA and its member schools across all divisions,” said ACHA Executive Director Craig Barnett.  “About half of all ACHA member teams, in both the men’s and women’s divisions, are within an eight to ten-hour drive to St. Louis.  With the support of the St. Louis Sports Commission and the Blues, we’re looking forward to a great event to showcase the very best of ACHA hockey and to crown five division champions at the Centene Community Ice Center in 2022!”

“We are proud to bring another marquee collegiate hockey tournament to St. Louis,” said Blues President and CEO Chris Zimmerman.  “This is the Heartland of Hockey and the Centene Community Ice Center is the hub of hockey development in the Midwest.  Hosting the ACHA National Championship is a testament to the St. Louis community and the great strides we have made in growing our great sport throughout the region.”

“The ACHA National Championship is exactly the type of event we had dreamed of hosting when designing the Centene Community Ice Center,” said Patrick Quinn, Chairman of the St. Louis Legacy Ice Foundation.  “A chance to showcase one of hockey’s largest amateur events here in The Heartland of Hockey in a world-class facility ideally suited for players and fans alike.  Not only will local fans get to choose from over 100 games, our region’s businesses will see nearly $3 Million in economic impact as the tournament fills nearly 5,000 room nights during their stay and visitors enjoy the St. Louis sites and food scene.”

“We are thrilled to host the ACHA National Championships in St. Louis,” said St. Louis Sports Commission Vice President Chris Roseman. “Along with our partners, we look forward to welcoming everyone to the Heartland of Hockey and creating a first-class experience for the student-athletes, coaches, and fans representing at least 72 teams from around the country.”
