‘’We’re really excited to announce more details about what our fall semester is going to look like,” said NECC Commissioner Jacob VanRyn. “We're excited for our lineup of titles for the coming semester. We work with our directors and coaches to ensure we offer the titles they offer and want to compete it. While we were proud of what we accomplished during our Year Zero (2020-21), I think our teams and players will see the conference continue to grow and be even better this coming fall."

The regular season will begin the week of September 20 following two weeks of activation tournament play. The postseason officially begins on Tuesday, November 16 and NECC Championship games are slated to take place December 4-8.
