Re: Club team beats a D-1

Anon
And to be specific, they have 7 Canadians and 2 Russians playing club hockey in Virginia on their D1 ACHA team, not your typical college club hockey team?
Most would be surprised as to the composition of some of these club teams. Kids who play top level Jrs. and decide to focus on academics, kids who want to choose a school rather than have the school choosing them, better prep school kids who have had enough. . . Seriously, I went and watched a local D-3 game and to think 4-5 kids off of a local Club Team like BC or NH couldn't play D-3 is laughable.

It\\'s not a surprise, LIU has very large roster, probably played a number of those kids to get some ice time. At the same time Liberty has 3 club teams, Div I, II, III, their Div team is loaded with Canadian kids who have aged out of major juniors, so yes, they don\\'t suck
Details matter
It's also an online school, started by Jerry Falwell. Not exactly a bastion of higher education.

Other sports are NCAA D-I.
It may have online classes, but it also has a very large campus
It's 85% online. That's more than "online classes."
The school isn't typically 85% online, it must be a Covid thing right now
Sorry, but you're wrong. Team wanted to recruit my kid last year. We looked into it - for five minutes. Athletics good, education worse than bad.

Congrats on your kid being recruited for Club hockey
