With a shortened season on tap, the Shore Conference has consolidated the ice hockey divisions from four to three in 2021 and will use a North, Central, South structure. The North and Central divisions will be comprised of eight teams each and the South division will have seven teams. All the co-ops remain the same with the addition of Jackson Memorial joining Jackson Liberty and Point Boro to form a three-team co-op.

Practices began on Jan. 2 after Gov. Phil Murphy lifted the ban on indoor sports. The first games of the season can be played starting on Friday, Jan. 15 and the season will run through Saturday, March 6. The season was originally set to begin on Jan. 4 and run through Feb. 17.
