NCAA Education and Compliance continues in San Jose
October 16, 2013
In an effort to provide more opportunity to NAPHL players, the NAHL has tasked Craig Barnett to present an Education and NCAA Compliance seminar during the San Jose showcase event. The 45-minute presentation scheduled for Saturday, October 19, 2013 will be located at Sharks Ice.
Craig is currently the Coordinator of Player Development for NAPHL and NA3HL. He is also a former NCAA I head hockey coach, athletic director and currently serves as commissioner of a NCAA I lacrosse conference. Craig brings a wealth of knowledge and information that he will share during these seminars.
The Education and Compliance seminar will cover several topics including the differences between NCAA Division I and III hockey, an introduction to the NCAA Eligibility Center and important soon-to-be changes, Academic requirements needed to compete at the NCAA level, and how the college recruiting process works.
The NAHL Event Scouting Group will also be on hand in San Jose and will be easily identified by their grey NAHL jackets. Barnett coordinates this effort by having the scouting group watch and evaluate all 16 NAPHL teams participating this weekend. The evaluation reports are then collected, organized, and then attached to each players Cardinal Sports profile. A full scouting report will then be dispersed to all NCAA I and III schools, NAHL coaches and NHL scouts.
Last season was the first year of the scouting initiative and proved to be very successful in assisting NAPHL coaches in promoting their players to the next level of hockey. “There are a record number of former players from both the NA3HL and NAPHL currently on NAHL rosters, so we feel this is a very important piece to the recruiting puzzle,” said NAHL Commissioner Mark Frankenfeld. “With over 1,100 players actively playing in both the NA3HL and NAPHL this season, Craig’s role is essential in coordinating, organizing and distributing the Event Scouting System report and results to junior and college coaches.”
