The Central Collegiate Hockey Association is a college athletic conference which operates mostly in Michigan and Ohio, although it also has members in Alaska, Indiana and Nebraska. It participates in the NCAA's Division I as a hockey-only conference. It holds its championship tournament at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, usually in the second week of March.

Unlike several other Division I hockey conferences, the CCHA has no women's division.
