    All The Way From “Pay to Play” To The NCAA

    By Chris Walby 07/16/2021, 10:00am CDT

    What To Do When The USHL And NAHL Don’t Want You, But You Still Want To Play

    MINNEAPOLIS —  It’s that time of year again. The NAHL just had their draft and hundreds of Minnesota high school hockey players are crushed they didn’t get drafted. What’s next?

    Unfortunately, it’s sad. The majority of them will quit and “just go to school.”  It’s true. Now entering my tenth season of Junior A hockey, I’ve watched this trend continue and shake my head at the number of Minnesotans who give up the game they allegedly love and enroll in school for the fall.

    There is a stigma here in the “State of Hockey” that if you don’t make the United States Hockey League (USHL) or North American Hockey League (NAHL), that you’re no good and even more absurd is that you’re above having to pay to play hockey and should just go to school.

    I learned early that this was a huge obstacle to overcome while recruiting Minnesota players, but have managed to talk some sense into a few of them. They realize they love the game too much to quit.  Most of those stories have a great ending that entails them playing NCAA Division lll hockey and living life without the regret of quitting.

    My message and the point of this article is simple.  If you love to play the game, keep playing.  Our tuition here and most places is affordable if you get a job and put the work in.  That in itself builds character and players appreciate the experience each season even more .

    With a ton of hard work and a coach who believes in you, you can make it to the NCAA.  You can earn a spot on a college roster.  You can earn a spot on a college roster and compete with and against those same players that were picked over you in the USHL and NAHL.

    Lastly, I’ll end on this and several players will agree with me.  Junior hockey is one of the most memorable times in a player’s life.  You get to travel the country, play in big games in front of big crowds and you’re treated pretty well.  Way above all of that, you forge lifelong friendships, you face and figure out tough life lessons on your own and you learn how to compete.

    You are older, wiser, more mature and better equipped for college in comparison to the average 18 year old freshman and that leads to a successful college career and that leads to making it in the real world.

    Below is a list of players that all paid to play.
