I'm in Niagara too, couple of the ice dogs go to Brock, and the rest all go to the same highschool. I have an ice dog in one of my classes im pretty sure.

My appoligies. I wrote that wrong for sure. What I meant was that they get out of school early every day to go to practice. They are both very important to the players as with the OHL I would assume.

I just meant like, if a player is failing a class in highschool, I don't think it effects their eligiblilty to play in the OHL. Could be wrong maybe..

From what I know, high school aged players attend a high school in the city of the team they play for, if they live far away. Then after the season is over they go back to their local high school and finish there.

I went to high school with the Platers (now Attack) in Owen Sound. I know one of our guidance counselors was involved with them. They were hardly ever there and when they were there they were mostly hanging out by the front doors. Now sure how any of them passed, but I heard of a few who did well after my time there. Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day and it seems like it would make more sense to be "team schooled" (like home school but with the team) instead, because it must be tough on the teachers too that they hardly ever show.

(And yes, Sean Avery loved himself as much in high school as he does now)

All high school aged on the Spits go to St. Anne's. If a player is local, they can continue at their normal school. The older kids generally enroll at the University of Windsor on a part time schedule.

Like some said...some players do well...others struggle. Derek Lanoue and Mark Cundari were always being rewarded because of their strong academics. For example, Taylor Hall was heavily modified as he wasn't...well to put it nicely...not really academic minded.

Each team has their own academic advisor. Spits have 2. One for high school and one for post secondary.

As discussed many also are enrolled in Univ. & college.

Every player in the CHL is entitled 1 year of college/university for every year he plays in the CHL.
Many take advantage of this ie - 275 last year from the WHL.
Using the same # for the Q + the O equates to 825 players per year making use of the CHL scholarship funding.
