So sending your kid to one of those D-III academic powerhouses like SNHU or UMass-Dartmouth is your idea of preparing your kid for life after college then good luck to you. I\\\'m with the other guy, pick a great school - not one of your prep school / D-III schools up in the woods no one outside of New England has ever heard of - and let the kid play for fun. No crime in that.
SNHU is D-II
SNHU is a bad school & worse at hockey.
Hahahaha! An online college has D-2 hockey?

Re: Club hockey -

Let's see, two years of juniors, D-3 at a little no name school or good known school at 18 and club hockey. As a parent it's a no brainer.

Re: Club hockey -

I don't disagree. I only hope that if and when my kid is faced with that decision, I have the balls to let him make it on his own.

This is hard for most parents to do as they have sunk a tremendous amount of time and money into their kid's hockey career over the years and to then have it come to an end playing club is unpalatable to most. Not saying this is my view. Not to mention that just a few years prior many of these kids were the stars of their elite teams, daddy boasting at the office, mom trumpeting her little studs accomplishments around the rink. Big talk of playing college hockey and now, .... meh.
