The MAAC was founded in 1980 by six charter members; the U.S. Military Academy, Fairfield University, Fordham University, Iona College, Manhattan College and St. Peters College. Competition followed one year later in the fall of 1981 with members competing in the sports of mens cross country and mens soccer. On January 2, 1982, when Army traveled to Iona, the first MAAC mens basketball game was played and the MAAC story was just beginning to be written. In June of 1995, the MAAC continued to develop opportunities for student-athletes as the conference announced the formation of the MAAC Men's and Women's Lacrosse Leagues, with the men's league beginning competition in the Spring of 1996 and the women's league commencing in the Spring of 1997. The men's league consists of four MAAC schools -- Canisius, Manhattan, Marist, Siena -- and six associate members -- Mount St. Mary's, Providence, Quinnipiac, Sacred Heart, St. Joseph's University (PA) and Wagner. The women's league consists of MAAC institutions Canisius, Fairfield, Manhattan, Marist, Niagara and Siena, plus Le Moyne College. In September of 1997, the MAAC continued its mission of providing student-athletes with opportunity by forming the MAAC Ice Hockey League, which began play during the 1998-99 season. The league, one of six conferences in NCAA Division I, consists of three full-time members -- Canisius, Fairfield and Iona -- and eight associate members -- American International College, Bentley College, University of Connecticut, College of the Holy Cross, Mercyhurst University, Quinnipiac University, Sacred Heart University and the United States Military Academy. The MAAC Hockey League success story was perpetuated this summer as the League was awarded an automatic berth to the NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Championship.
