College Hockey: D3 vs Club
« on: June 04, 2019, 12:40:02 PM »


Aside from any differences between the talent level or the quality of the games does anyone have first hand experience on the differences between D3 and Club College Hockey?

Best I can tell most D3 schools are smaller and don't offer as many of the education choices that many large state schools (with club hockey) have, which could be problematic for some.

We have experience with D3 schools with other sports and realize having a coach recruiting your kid at those schools can help with their chances of being accepted and getting a more robust financial aid package.  Does that ever happen with club teams? 

Do you have to pay to play at a D3 hockey school? I understand club teams can cost about what you would pay for travel hockey.  Is that correct? 

Are there any other difference that a parent or player should be aware of, when considering these two options?

Thank you for your input.

If you are paying to play hockey in college, you shouldn't be playing hockey in college.

So just give it up then.  Who cares you enjoy it. Who cares it keeps you in shape or sane or it is just plain fun.  Don't play. become a hermit, go buy an xbox, sit on the couch, and gain 100 pounds.
What a stupid answer.
Kids play all sorts of club sports in college. None of them are free.  Hockey is more expensive than most but most don't have to worry about ice time. There are lots of kids playing those club sports that could play for a NCAA sanctioned team but chose not to do so. In fact I know a few that turned down D1 scholarships and later played on club teams in the sport of their choice.  I have known others that got hurt but still wanted to play the game even if they couldn't play at a higher level anymore.  All are very happy to have club sports as an option.  But since you said they shouldn't be playing for a program like that, I will have to go tell them to stop and make sure all the schools end their club sport programs too.

I'll second that just dumb. Look into the schools and find out what the cost is. They should be comparable to playing club growing up anywhere from around 3k to 7k but if the school organization has an alumni they could very well be helping to fund keeping costs down. I don't know if you can get a scholarship for club or Dlll though.

Obviously from someone who has no first hand experience at anything.

And this answer my friend is the exact mentality that kills youth hockey. Clueless people this guy must coach!

There is no reason why playing in college at club or D3  should be frowned upon. I played with several guys who played club/D3 and D1. The price index mentioned above to play is accurate but the alumni donations and fundraising almost completely erases a players financial obligation to play. Some might be lucky enough to have to pay nothing but it's totally worth it for those who want to continue playing competitively for their school they're part of. PLAY!
