BCHL Scholarship Facts – Quick Look

NCAA Scholarship Facts

Here are the BCHL results which show the amount of Players Signed, the overall percentage from that age group signed of the total and at what age Players were listed when they signed their NCAA Scholarship letters of intent. This information is from a 2 year study I conducted of the BCHL (2007-08 & 2008-09 Seasons):

1) 16 Years of Age – 4 Players – 2.89%
2) 17 years of Age – 1 Player – 0.72%
3) 18 Years of Age – 17 Players – 12.3%
4) 19 Years of Age – 29 Players – 21%
5) 20 Years of Age – 48 Players – 34.8%
6) 21 Years of Age – 39 Players – 28.3%

A quick look at the results shows us three outstanding facts.

Firstly, that ONLY 15.9% of the total scholarships given out over those 2 seasons were given to players 18 Years old or younger. In fact, for 16-17 year olds, ONLY an average of 2.5 Players per Season actually secured scholarships.

Secondly, 63% of ALL BCHL scholarships are awarded to players when they are in their final two years of junior eligibility (20-21 years of age).

Lastly, over 84% of ALL scholarships are awarded to players over 18 years of age, which means, the overwhelming majority of players secure their academic future, AFTER their NHL draft year has passed.
