The Northeast Women's Hockey League is an NCAA Division III women's ice hockey-only conference. The conference was formed in 2017 when the ECAC West collapsed the and five schools whose primary conference was SUNYAC banded together to form the NEWHL. While SUNYAC supports men's ice hockey only five of the ten member schools sponsor women's ice hockey.

Members[edit]

The NEWHL was formed by five schools in 2017 and will be joined by two more beginning with the 2019-20 season.[1] Because seven teams is the minimum requirement for a conference to receive an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament the stability of the NEWHL will be greatly strengthened with the additions.[1]
