    Now they do. The PSU case opened up a huge can of worms on the powers of the NCAA President.

    The above is a link to a 7 Days (Vermont Weekly Paper) atricle on what it takes to train the top hockey players in the state. I am not sure how the D3 training prorams compare with Body Solutions but pro athletics sometime train there.

    I'm sure that the competitive aspect of the trip was only a part of the consideration. As an educational experience, being able to encounter the culture of other countries is a pretty valuable thing. Not everything that happens in DIII hockey is, or even should be, focused on winning games. That (fortunately) is the difference between DIII sports and DI sports. The focus is on the education first, and athletics second.

    I have read the castleton team blog and sounds like the competetion was only in the 1st games the other games were absolute blow outs , winning by 10 plus goals a game. Not worth that much money to see the sights of Europe. They even had to provide players because the team they played was short players. You would think that in planning a HOCKEY trip the competetion you play would be spot on so the games were competetive. Im sure the boys had fun but still....

    WOW, Sounds pretty loose. But I suppose they are more concerned with keeping players in the game than developing good citizens.

    Just because the NCAA itself isn't making it's own policy doesn't mean the schools are loose. Geneseo cancelled the whole Women's Volleyball season after an early-season hazing incident. And I know SUNY Plattsburgh has policies that they enforce regarding an athlete's conduct should they do something egregious.

    JUST ASKING ????
    At the Division III level the NCAA itself tests the Championships at least every five years and some championships every year. Not sure where hockey falls under that. After that it's up to the conference or the school itself if they want to develop and enforce their own policy.

    A few years ago, Adrian went to Finland.
