    A pay-to-play beer league?

    Question about this, with players going up and down with a professional league (FHL), doesn't that hurt players chances of playing NCAA???

    Isn't it a concern that leagues around the US every year are struggling to find players to play? If you are a 1996 or older player AND cannot find a NCAA, ACHA, CIS, ACAC, BCIHL, or minor pro option, shouldn't you just retire to a Sunday night beer league?

    Players will PAY almost $10,000 USD (not including food) for a chance to play in the lowest professional league in North America? And ruin their NCAA eligibility by playing in the IDHL? Great idea...

    Good luck recruiting in Europe...

    Hi Becks, thank you for your message! Heading the IDHL is Andy "Sarge" Richards, along with his son Mark, who was an NHL contract goalie with the Winnipeg Jets, and a minor pro coach, GM, and Club President! I have know them for 30 years, and they are some of the best, well connected, high quality individuals in the game!

    The IDHL will protect a player's eligibility, and FHL teams will be provided a list of players who want to protect their NCAA eligibility, and those players will not be called up. Most players who age out of the junior hockey system here in the USA can in fact attend college, playing hockey, but some are looking for that one or 2 years more of development. Some may simply want some path for a chance to develop into a professional player.

    Fees for IDHL teams will be far below $10,000, and players may also coach and work part-time. I will serve as European Scout and also be evaluating goalies during tryouts. The IDHL is a great option for '96 and older European players looking for an opportunity here in the USA to learn the style in North America, develop, and gain exposure to US College Programs, the FHL, and SPHL.

    Ugh, you realize that the IDHL has already stated that it is AFFILIATED with the FHL? Is the FHL a professional ice hockey league? Yes.

    Therefore, ANY player that plays in the IDHL will have to petition to the NCAA to TRY to get their amatuer status reinstated. Which means, NCAA schools WILL NOT watch your games because trying to get IDHL players eligibile will be a headache.

    Then your website is lying. It states league fees are: $7,500 + $400 per month for housing.
    Season runs October to March (6 months x $400 = $2,400)

    Therefore, the total league fee (without food) is $9,900 USD

    Unless of course you mean that some players don't have to pay that and the fee will be waived, which then leads to another NCAA violation.

    The IDHL is a great option for '96 and older European players looking for an opportunity here in the USA to learn the style in North America, develop, and gain exposure to US College Programs, the FHL, and SPHL.
    No it isn't.

    The best exposure to US College programs are the US Junior hockey leagues that are NCAA compatible.
    USHL
    NAHL
    NCDC
    USPHL
    NA3HL
    WSHL
    etc.

    AFTER those leagues. If a player wants to get more seasoning for pro. They can enroll in colleges.
    USA: NCAA D1, NCAA D3, ACHA
    Canada: CIS, ACAC, BCIHL

    OR turn professional (if you can't make it in the FHL, it's probably time to retire to the beer leagues).

    Europeans have plenty of options to play, without having to pay a lot.
    For example Sweden has: SHL, Allsvenskan, HockeyEttan, and Division 2. Even Division 3 is an option.

    Central Europe has the European University Hockey League now if you do not wish to play pro.


    Please, stop claiming stuff and misleading players. The IDHL looks like a cash grab league to fund the FHL.

    A $400 a month fee for housing is standard in the hockey world, and not included in the team fees, which as stated will be well below $10,000, in fact $7,500.

    No it isn't.

    I agree, but those leagues will be for players born 1997 or younger only! The IDHL is one of a very few options for 1996 and older players interested in further developing their game for the NCAA!

    AFTER those leagues. If a player wants to get more seasoning for pro. They can enroll in colleges.
    USA: NCAA D1, NCAA D3, ACHA

    I'm sorry, but I respectfully disagree! The IDHL is headed by some of the most respected and influential individuals in the USA, and will give many players who have aged out the opportunity to further their development and exposure to NCAA and minor pro hockey teams, at a very modest cost! Thank you!

    Again, your failure to understand potential risks to player's NCAA eligibility is a concern. You still don't understand. Players that want to play college hockey should avoid this league.
