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.

In order to streamline the communication surrounding selections, avoid confusion about the notification process, and provide families with as much advanced notice as possible for planning purposes, USA Hockey and its twelve districts follow a National Notification Timeline. Please reference the National Notification for details on this year’s notification dates and player selection process. Thank you in advance for your patience with this process. For additional questions, please contact Jean at email@example.com.
Please read the tryout agreement that was signed by all associations that have 10 and 12U tier I and II teams. It is important that everyone abides by this agreed upon policy.
The tryout agreement allows for the girls to finish their season through league playoffs before trying out for a 2017-18 season spring or fall team.
Thanks for your cooperation!
It is that time of year to begin the selection process for the USA Hockey Female Honors Award.
