Organization facilities

History

The ECRHA was founded by Jonathan Huck, Brendan Brennan, Nick Sally, and Ben Picker (who is now general counsel to the NCRHA and ECRHA). The region was first known as the Mid-Atlantic Region (MAR) of the Collegiate Roller Hockey League (CRHL). After the collapse of the CRHL and the creation of the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (NCRHA), the MAR was renamed and restructured into the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association. The region then merged with the New England Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (NECRHA) to increase the size of the ECRHA. Thereafter, in 2006, teams from Virginia, an area previously within the borders of the ECRHA, moved into the Southeastern Collegiate Roller Hockey League.

Events

The 2003 National Championship tournament was held in Feasterville, PA at the Sportsplex, the home of the ECRHA. College roller hockey teams came from around the country to be crowned the national champions at the division I, II and III levels. Lindenwood (MO), Cal Poly Pomona(CA), SUNY Binghamton(NY) and St Charles CC(M0) all went home with championships in their respective divisions.
