Some interesting numbers showing just how willing and committed you must be to play NCAA Hockey.
There are approximately 28,000 high school senior aged or older players registered with USA Hockey or playing Jr. Hockey in the United States.
There are 59 D1 Teams.
There are 79 D3 Teams.
Each team brings in an average of 6 new players each season and about half of those are from the United States. That means that only about 408 of the 28,000 players will get a chance to play in college.
That represents about 1.5% of the players……
For Division 1 that represents about .6% of players.
How committed are you and what are you doing special to be in the top ½% ???????
Remember those numbers when you are training this summer.
