The Texas Collegiate Hockey Conference was formed in 2016. Original members of the TCHC were Texas A&M, University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas at El Paso, Texas State, TCU, Dallas Baptist University, Texas Tech and University of North Texas.
The inaugural play-offs were hosted and won by University of Texas at El Paso. In the second season, the TCHC play-offs were hosted by University of Texas at Austin and won by University of North Texas.
Each August the TCHC hosts a Recruitment Camp/College Fair, with the sole purpose of allowing the student-athletes to meet and talk with the coaches, players and admissions staff from the teams in our conference. The first TCHC Recruitment Camp/College Fair had 75 in attendance and grew to 175 in the second year.
In 2018, the TCHC also began hosting a Youth Festival for 8, 10 and 12u hockey players. This event give house/rec players a chance to play in a fun environment, meet college hockey players, get a replica college jersey and meet new friends.
