The Mid-Atlantic Women's Hockey League (MAWHL) is the oldest continuously active women's ice hockey league in North America. This League is not a professional women's ice hockey. The MAWHL is an amateur hockey league and have three divisions allowing for different levels of women's players in United States. The MAWHL is controlled by USA Hockey. The league have a wide range of talent, some from high school and others that currently play or have played for the United States women's national ice hockey team.

History

The MAWHL was begun in 1975–76 with only three teams. The Delaware Bobcats, the Boulevard Hookers and the University of Pennsylvania's club team. In the 1976–77 season, the Philadelphia Ice-Centennials joined the MAWHL.

During the summer of 1977, the increased popularity of ice hockey sparked the birth of the Mid-Atlantic Women's Ice Hockey League. It consisted of nine teams at the start of the 1977–78 season. The newcomers included: the Bergen Blades A team and B team, the Ironbound Bandits, the Pittsburgh Pennies, and the Philadelphia Ice-Centennials B team.

At the beginning of the 1978–79 season, the Budweiser Redcoats, and the Green Machine Eagles from Long Island, New York joined our league. Unfortunately the Pittsburgh Pennies, and the Bergen Blades B team dropped out. With these changes MAWHL now had a nine-team league divided into North and South regional divisions. At the start of the 1979–80 season our league started with eight teams: Four in the both divisions. At the start of the 1980–81 season, only six teams remained in the league. Gradually even that number diminished to four with the losses of the Bergen Blades in 1981, and the then Long Island Eagles in 1986
