I don't think it is, but not 100% sure.

Ok 1st, Not to be rude but if you are asking what the level of play is like than you're probably not good enough to play on NCAA Div I, (II),or III.

2nd- Schools aren't allowed to have two sports teams in different divisions of the same sport. So there's a couple possibilities a) Your school has a NCAA DIII team and an ACHA/Club DII team. b) or your school has a ACHA DI or II team and an ACHA DIII team.

3rd- IF you do plan on trying out next year to any of the teams Club or NCAA, I suggest work on stick handing, power skating, strength and conditioning, etc. You have to be in top shape in any college league to be able to go out almost everyday and play fast hard hitting hockey and still go to classes, work, other club meetings, etc...

Unless you plan on making hockey your career, picking a school by its hockey team over its academics isn't a very good move.


But if your a Sr. in HS what you want to do is go on college visits and go to a practice with team. We have kids all year come in all year who practice with us in the afternoon then hang around campus for the evening then stay over with a member of the team and depart in the afternoon the next day. Maybe sit in on a class or 2.

When I opened this thread I was wondering how many posts it would take for a Mighty Ducks reference. Good play

skill level pretty much is ranked in this order.

NCAA Div I
NCAA Div III
ACHA CLUB Div I
ACHA CLUB Div II
ACHA CLUB div III


most ACHA club Div I teams can keep up with NCAA div III teams but the best of div III ncaa would most likely beat ACHA club divI

D1 basically every team is good, and is much more national regarded. With D3 you have schools like oswega who are just dominant every year and could compete with the good D1 schools, only dont because of their size.
Not sure it has anything to do with the Enrollment/Size of school. I am pretty sure if you compare something like RPI's Enrollment (5,300) and Oswego's (8,200) it may be somewhat clear. There are a bunch of teams in DIII that i think could make the Jump to DI, but there are other things to consider when they make that decision, mainly money unfortunately.

And as far as Barns, RIT has the largest facility in the Atlantic (2100), so that is not necessarily the case either. Some DIII teams have larger facilities

Also There are some DI schools that are not allowed to offer Athletic Scholarships. RIT cannot simply because they would have to make other sports jump to DI (womens Hockey or some other womens team) in order to offer them.

As for how they get around the Athletic Scholarships; Some private schools are able to offer Financial Aid on top of the regular Academic Scholarships.

Edit: Maybe a club team player can correct me on this, but i have heard that they do not get all that much funding from the schools, and often times have to either pay their way, or have fundraisers to get by.

This is correct. I played DII club and the school gave us some funding and we had to come up with the rest. We did a few fund raisers throughout the year to come up with some of it. Most of the time we had to pay a few hundred out of pocket, which was much less than I had to pay out of pocket for high school.

I have to say: I don't think I've ever in my tenure here laughed out loud at a post, but you sir, have done the job.
