GVSU sounds more organized than his club team. Loyola had one team snd Freshman rotated dressing to fill the game roster. The hockey level was great
If I remember, we paid ice time and refs ( the amount was similar to what we paid for annual high school fees). The school paid for vans to transport to close games an they paid for motor coaches and hotel rooms for road trips. Loyola made nationals twice in my son’s four years. They had a reputation as being the smart kids because they were all 19 to 22. Most teams were comprised of older kids who tried American Juniors for a few years. The Loyola team was more like the Johnstown Chiefs than the smart kids.
Facility is 5 minutes away from us. My son is a squirt there this year for the local club team.
I know someone who played club at GVSU and there are indeed multiple teams. It's highly competitive there. If you'd like I can reach out to him. Email included.
He didn’t make the teams this year
I believe he was the highest scoring defenseman in his state at his level...I thought for sure he’d make it.
Lots of hockey talent at GVSU apparently. I wonder if their top team should take on MSU for fun
Division 1 ACHA club hockey. They have D1 and D3 teams. It was a big commitment with fundraising and a lot of travel. Games scheduled from Arizona, Oklahoma and West Virginia. Also North Dakota.
As a freshman it was too much for him with late night practices and studying in an engineering program.
travel and fundraising can eat up a lot of time. Some also charge for a wide variety of things, including captain's practices, tryouts, etc.
