Adrian College adding an ACHA Division 2 Women's team next season. I was hoping that you can help spread the word within your organization and district. We are hoping to attract players who otherwise might not have gotten an opportunity to play college hockey. The team will start playing 2017-18, and will be fully supported by the Athletic Department.
Our state-of-the-art Arrington Ice Arena is home to some of the best fans in the country. With only 1,700 students on campus, Adrian College is a very comfortable place to study. Our average class size is only 16 students which allows for plenty of 1 on 1 time with professors and hands-on experience with any classroom equipment. While we are a smaller school, we can offer a much more in depth experience for student-athletes on and off the ice, with well over 50% of our students being student-athletes.

"...children are likely to live up to what you believe of them..." Coaches often look for that 'once In a lifetime athlete'; but it's more important that every single day, every single kid we come across knows that they are a 'one in a million kid.' #LikeAGirl #IcanDoAnything #GirlIsNotAFourLetterWord #strongisbeautiful
