NCAA Men's Hockey v3 Overview

Introduction

Sportradar’s NCAAMH API offers scores and time remaining updates for all in-progress Division I hockey games. It is consistent in structure, format, and behavior with our other League Specific APIs.

Primary feeds will return schedules, standings, and game scores. Additional feeds provide complementary data, including team rosters and Top 25 rankings.

API Map

To best utilize the NCAA Men's Hockey API, you will need several parameters to create your API calls. The map below illustrates how you can obtain the parameters you need.

The primary feeds require only a date or season to call the endpoints. Those feeds provide Game, Team, or Tournament Ids which can be used to generate the game, team, and tournament feeds. All of the other feeds require no variables.

🏒

Tournament Ids are only listed in the Tournament List feed. Use the Tournament List to get the Ids required to access the Tournament Schedule and Tournament Summary.
