CCAA NATIONAL HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS (MEN'S)

From the 1974-75 season through the 2000-01 season, nationals were held on 23 occasions. Alberta teams won 17 national titles. The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) Ooks won 7 national titles including six with Perry Pearn at the helm.

(The CCAA Championship Bowl was presented to the winning team at the CCAA National Hockey Championships on 22 occasions. The national goverrning body also sanctioned the CCAA Challenge Cup which was presented to the winning team in 1992.)

 

A pair of regional championships were established prior to the inaugural CCAA Men's Hockey National Championships.

The 4-West Championships featured representatives of the four western provinces between 1972 and 1980. Alberta teams were triumphant in eight of the nine events. Both the Red Deer College Kings and the Mount Royal College Cougars were three time 4-West Champions.

The champions of Ontario and Quebec met only once in the spring of 1974 with the Les Patriotes de Saint-Laurent claiming bragging rights.

Qualifiers for the CCAA Men's Hockey National Championships occurred in 1981, 1982, and 1990.

Alberta teams advanced when they met their Saskatchewan counterparts in 1981, 1982 and 1990.

Ontario teams moved on when they met their Manitoba counterparts in 1981 and 1982.

The College of Cape Breton Capers from Nova Scotia qualified in 1981 and the Les Titans de Limoilou from Quebec qualified in 1982 when teams from the two provinces played for a berth at nationals.

CCAA NATIONAL HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS (WOMEN'S)

To date, there have been no CCAA Women's Hockey National Championships despite the efforts of conferences based in Alberta and Quebec.

In 2003, Red Deer College and John Abbott College led an effort to establish a national championship. Teams from the two provinces played one another in an effort to raise awareness of the sport.

Without adequate competition in the other conferences, a national championship did not materialize.
