    Re: Premier D3 jobs

    Why people are talking about weather with D3 hockey schools is absolutely mind-blowing. What schools have a good winter??? They're all NE & midwest. Like, is this seriously what we're doing here? Debating winters for d3 schools? Waste of time.

    *This is the case for every NCAA hockey school except for what, ASU and Alabama-Huntsville?

    I have been very impressed with Salve's recruiting in the NAHL which appears to be a trend for eastern schools. With the Northeast Generals in Attleboro it should be easy for D3 schools to check out the NAHL talent. But I would give 100% of the credit to the coach who has convinced players to come east and play in a high school rink a few miles away. And maybe Salve is offering better financial packages then temas like Norwich and the SUNY schools looking for the same players?

    The only reason I referenced weather is because some posters have talked up Newport as a great place to live, go to school and is a big draw in recruiting. I lived in the Newport area 3+- years and didn't find the town had much to offer unless you have big $$$. Also noticed that the Attleboro NAHL team has a few players going to NEHC teams. So the eastern teams are indeed looking at the league for talent. Noticed that Babson and USM have players recruited from the Generals.

    Salveís football team holds spring ball practices ON THE BEACH. Literally. Iíve gotta believe their other sports are using the location to their advantage in some capacity.

    Norwich didnít lose those kids to Salve because of money. I donít know why they chose Salve over Norwich, but I do know that wasnít it.

    Are DIII schools allowed to have spring football practice? I don't recall that happening anywhere

    Of course they are. 15 practices. No equipment. Except for the NESCAC that's their league rule.

    Not for nothing, during the winter, these kids are in the rink. The weather then doesnít matter much.
