Hockey Scholarships

Playing college hockey on a scholarship in the US is a great way of still pursuing a professional career, but at the same time getting a university degree

The dream for most hockey players is to make a living at their sport as professionals. Success requires talent, hard work, determination and luck. Competition is fierce, and over 95% of hockey players fail to ultimately earn a living by just playing hockey.

To play college hockey in the United States is a brilliant opportunity to continue your efforts towards a professional career, while acquiring a university education to fall back on.

The backbone of the NHL consists of drafted college players and there are also a number of other professional leagues around the world with many former college players.

The competition in college hockey is fierce. One reason for this is that there are considerably smaller amount of schools that can offer hockey programs than for example soccer, tennis and golf. In addition, it is only in the highest college division (NCAA Div 1 ) that one can get athletic scholarships in collegiate hockey. However, it is possible in other divisions (NCAA Division 3 and ACHA ) to receive academic and international scholarships that can help finance your education.

The lifestyle of a college hockey player in the United States is very similar to that of a professional player. You train daily at top facilities where you have access to physio, physiotherapists and nutritionists. You travel a lot, staying at hotels, and get the chance to play against the country’s best young players.

To have a reasonable chance to compete for a place in a college team you need to play at highest amatuer level in your home country.
