The German Association Championship (Meisterschaft des Deutschen-Hockeyverbandes) was a competition for ethnic German teams in Czechoslovakia. It was organized by the Deutscher Eishockey Verband (DEHV).

The championship used a rather complicated format, as ethnic German teams from around Czechoslovakia were eligible to participate. There were usually multiple regional qualifying tournaments contested.

The 1931 German Association champion, Troppauer EV Opava, played LTC Praha for the Czechoslovak Championship, losing 2-0.

Troppauer EV qualified for the 1936-37 Czechoslovak Extraliga season by winning the DEHV championship. DFK Komotau earned a spot in the Extraliga for 1937-38 the same way.
