Don't let D-3 Dad see this! He thinks D-3 is one step away from 'The Show' and to think these super stars are mixed with lowly ACHA players! Oh the horror!
Fact is D3 and ACHA both lead to beer leagues with some minor exception so might as well get them prepped. They’ve still gone further than 90% of the kids they grew up playing with. Be happy your kid still loves the game and hopefully will turn into a productive member of society with their college degree.
