Ten Division 2 ACHA teams – Columbia, Loyola, Penn, Towson, Villanova, Rowan, Montclair and Maryland from the DVCHC, along with non-league opponents Delaware and Navy – are set to battle, while fellow DVCHC members Slippery Rock and Saint Joseph's will also return to the Showdown stage representing D3.

U19 / HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS:
On Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018 at 3:45pm, the Women's DVCHC is excited to host another girls high school showcase for the first time in many years at IceWorks in Aston, PA! This will take place amidst the annual East Coast Showdown, where 12 women's college club teams (10 of which play at the national level in the ACHA), will play games over the course of the weekend. Our hope is to introduce high school players to some of the many universities and colleges in the Mid-Atlantic region that they could attend for a great education, while continuing to play fun and competitive hockey without the full time commitment of an NCAA schedule.
There are so many benefits and opportunities that can come from staying with hockey in college, something that many young women may not even realize is out there in so many forms, and we hope that having them meet, mingle and skate with some of these coaches and players will give them a new outlook as they embark on their college application and decision process!
Any female high school player is welcome to register and attend this event. The cost will be $60 per skater/goalie, which will include a practice jersey and one hour of on ice time, plus introductions to all teams present at the tournament.
