Hockey teams at most NCAA II-member schools compete at the NCAA I level.
Hockey is an equivalency sport for NCAA scholarship purposes, so partial scholarships can be awarded (up to 30 per team in NCAA Division I) to meet the limit per school. For example, an NCAA Division I school can award 27 ice Hockey players each a 2/3 scholarship and still meet the limit of 18 per school. Ice Hockey is not an official NAIA sport. NAIA member institutions with varsity hockey programs compete in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) which includes both varsity and club programs from US colleges nationwide.
