College club hockey MUST be about fun. Get your education, continue to play, and be part of a team...what a great experience.
The rinks being used are the same rinks the players have played in since they were Mites. Other than some minor deterioration, what has changed? Except for the Johns Street rink in Bensenville, I have not been in a rink yet that has not been more than adequate.
What, specifically , is the rift with the refereeing? I have been to a number of games and as there are varying degrees of player ability and coaching ability...there are varying degrees of refereeing. Only once did I see a game where a referee and the linesmen were out of their league.
The ACHA is the best thing to come to club hockey...is it perfect? No, but it is better than the old days. They do need to refine the ranking system a little.
This forum has been created with the purpose to constructively discuss college club hockey. We encourage you to freely discuss any topic you wish, with the caveat that you keep the discourse within the bounds of good taste. While good natured trash-talking is fun, thought provoking and acceptable, any replies that turn personal, disrespectful and/or disruptive of the intent of this forum will be deleted by the moderators of this forum.
Our intent is to build up and promote college club hockey and its teams. We need to work together and support each other to make this happen. We already have enough critics of club hockey. Let's do our best to keep things amiable on this forum, as not to give them any ammunition.
Best of luck to ALL teams!
