  • 3. TOUGH ROADHockey is one of the toughest and fastest sports in theworld. To get to the next level you have to be very talentedand have a lot of drive, while also knowing the best routeto take to get there. You have to know from a pretty youngage that hockey is your favorite thing in life and you wantto pursue it. Playing NCAA hockey is what a lot of youngathletes goals. (Allen, K. M. 2007) Anyone who playssports wants to advance to the next level. For many peoplethat next level is the NCAA. Playing in the NCAA is adream all athletes have. What many of these students dont http://pubpages.unh.edu/~jif4/hockeyeast.htmlknow is how hard it is to actually play there. Playingjunior hockey is one of the best ways to reach the goal ofplaying in the NCAA.

  • 6. HARD WORK AND DRIVEIf you want to play college hockey be prepared to work harder than you ever have in your entire life. Juniorhockey is one of the best ways to be recognized by D-1 colleges. To play hockey at this level, you must bededicated and ambitious. This is a preparatory league for the NCAA; this means that they take it very seriously.They have very long strenuous seasons each team in the Eastern Junior Hockey League. This junior hockeyprogram plays 60 games a year, compared to the NHL who play 82 games a year (McCarthy, Dave, ed. 2008).Once you are ready to accept the amount of work you will have to put in then you can think about how badly youreally want to play college hockey. It is important to play at many different places, so you are exposed to the rest ofthe hockey world. Hockey players come from all over to play college hockey that’s why you must go to manydevelopment schools. There are many different types of hockey development schools. The first type is an actualprep high school. (Lambert, M. L. 2012) This means that it is just a private high school. These schools must bepicked carefully; you must research what private schools have the best hockey program. This helps hockey player’sdevelopment because they are still in high school, except their main focus is hockey. The other type ofdevelopmental school is developmental camps/schools. These camps vary in skill and intensity. They are meant tojust be 100% player development. There is no school involved and is usually done in the summer time or offseason. It is an isolated camp that works on developing player’s skills through vigorous work outs and training.The last type of developmental school is Junior college. Junior college is a community college where athletes canplay and develop their skills for two years before they go to a four year college. This hockey isn’t very intense, butit is good to take time to get bigger, older and stronger to be able to play at D-1 schools. There is an 8.57% chanceto go to the NCCA for hockey if you go to a D 2 or 1 prep high school. If you only play in your public high school,you have a .06% chance of making it to a collegiate level.

  • 9. HARD WORK AND DRIVE
  • 10. RECOGNIZED Playing juniors is the best way to get recognized in the NCAA. If you play juniors you should be aiming to playtier 1 or the Eastern Junior Hockey League. This is the major junior hockey program for kids who want to playNCAA College hockey. This is the last step where you still pay money to play, usually 6,000 a year. Players fromthis league go directly to NCAA Division 1 schools. Although it is not high, the percentage of Jr. A players thatplay D-1 hockey is only 10.6%. Compared to other leagues, this is a high percentage. Playing hockey is thehardest sport to play Division 1 in college. (Houox, J. R.) The reason for this is because every athlete must take acouple years off before college to develop their skills. The years that hockey players take off is what separates theserious from the less serious. Also going through these vigorous leagues before college shows that you can handlethat amount of work, stress, and competition that comes with Division 1 hockey. This just shows how incrediblyhard it is to play Division 1 hockey.

  • 14. DECISIONS College hockey also has a lot of different levels that rangefrom D1-3, ACHA, NJCAA or club level. The leagues areseparated by the skill level and the intensity level of theteams. Division 1 is above and beyond all other leagues,but Division 2 and 3 are similar in skill. Division 1 has 59elite teams all over the country. Division two only has sixteams in its entire division. Division 3 has 73 men’shockey teams. Since D-2 has such few teams they play themajority of their seasons with the top D-3 teams. The onlyleagues that are in the NCAA are the D1-3 schools. Afterthese schools the levels of competition are not as serious. Itis much easier to make a NJCAA, or club level team.These teams are mainly to have fun, but still have toughcompetition.

  • 19. DON’T COUNT YOURCHICKENS TILL THEY HATCH If you are looking at these NCAA schools, the standardrecommendation from most educators and parents has beento pick a school where you will be happy at and look athockey after. This is said mainly because of the saying“don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. Parents andeducators are worried too many athletes throw away allother opportunities just to keep their hockey dreams alive. Ifyou are talented enough you will be picked up or noticed bythe best hockey teams. Playing hockey in college is veryhard to do, so you have to be sure you want hockey to takeover your life. You should never put hockey 100% in frontof school. The best way to prepare you for college hockeyis to do it early. You must put yourself on the best path to theNCAA, and realize that’s what you want in life, before highschool. You must get into very competitive programs at ayoung age to get recognized.

  • 24. DEVELOPMENT There are many different ways to get recognized and play Division 1-3 hockey. There are a lot of coaches andrecruits that are coming out for many Prep and USHL leagues. The NCAA is separated by divisions, but evenwithin these divisions there are different levels of difficulty. To play for a quality NCAA team is the toughest part.Every athlete who has worked hard enough to play hockey in college won’t want to settle for a poor team. Playingfor a strong, playoff worthy team is what every athlete should be striving for. There is not just one list that givesyou everything you have to do to make it to college hockey. This is one of those things that you have to work to getand continue. It is 100% in your hands. Brian McLaughlin, head of recruits for the NCAA actually stresses howhard it is to play D1-3 colleges even if you go to a top prep school. He says that a prep school is a very good idea,for just high school. They also stress school and grades because even if you make it to NCAA it’s even harder tomake it your career. All coaches and recruits look at grades. Grades are very important because you may be goodenough to play at their school but maybe not have god enough grades to get into their school. Prep school hockeyis a good way to get recognized for the NCAA. Prep school gives a great opportunity to play very competitivehockey, while receiving a very good education. This way is the best way for wealthier parents or players. It is veryexpensive to play at top D-1 schools, because they usually are big schools with 10s of thousands of students. Prephockey gives the student athlete another opportunity in case they give up on their dream of playing college hockey.It is definitely good to get other perspectives on college hockey to see what the best decision for each individualathlete is.

Out of all of the stats and ratios of going to the NCAA and even the NHL theUSHL has the highest percentage; 80. This percentage is extremely high, that’s why it is so incredibly hard to playin this league. It explains how a player must pass high school and earn good enough grades to get into college.Although many of these players who play regular shift dont even end up going to play college hockey. What thismeans is, you could be a starting player on one of these talented junior teams but still may not even make it to theNCAA. One skill these players need to develop over time is being able to except failure. The road to the NCAA isvery long, players need to be able to persevere through challenges, injuries and coaches opinions. Every playerneeds to be able to accept failure and continue to move forward from it. This program is very intense and has thebest talent of young hockey players. The program I mentioned is the USHL, this is a very prestigious league andevery player must share the same ambition to win. “There’s not a faster or more focused track to the NHL forthose who are ready”. Although many players get drafted to the NHL or other semiprofessional leagues it is still avery good tool to play college hockey. The key is are you good enough?

BY THE NUMBERSThe USHL focuses how going through this level of hockey at the high school age is best way to get a college spot.Over 250 players from the 2011-12 season received scholarships to play NCAA Division 1 hockey. There is nogreater testimonial to the work and dedication of young hockey players then to see them mature and grow throughthe most challenging, but rewarding platform in sports. This sport is so hard to succeed in, which is why no othersport provides so many college routes. Many Jr. Teams have many different college recruits at home games. TheUSHL Champion ship last year had a crowd of 3,480 people. It also had scouts from over 50 NCAA schools.
