Season Notes
Sioux Falls exits the League after two seasons.
Due to the closing of Pepsi Ice Center in Overland Park early in 2011, the Kansas City Stars and Kansas City Jr. Outlaws merge to form the Kansas City Jets and skate out of the newly remodeled Kansas City Ice Center in Shawnee, Kansas.
The League's 12 teams are divided into East and West divisions playing a 32-game schedule. Teams in the same division play each other 4 times, teams in opposite divisions play each other twice.
The League adopts a new Varsity regular-season overtime format:
1. 4-on-4, 5-minute sudden-death overtime, 2. 3-player shootout, 3. sudden-death shootout.
Waterloo finshes the regular season in first place and represents the League at the USA Hockey High School National Championships in Salt Lake City, UT, March 21-25. Waterloo advances to the championship game falling to Regis Jesuit of Colorado, 4-3.
A prorated protected list is implemented based on team enrollment.
