Son played hockey since he was three. He played travel hockey since five years of age. He made it to the state championship game 4x. (he played varsity one year-his sophomore year since he was playing against seniors he thought it would be a challenge. In our area (not commenting on other areas)Travel Hockey is FAR more rigorous than high school hockey and the competition is fierce. His team has made it to the state championship game 4x in a state that plays high level hockey. 1. Travelractices 4 times per week and games 2-3 nights per week, High school 2 practices and 1-2 games per week 2. Travel: off ice training 5 times per week, High school-no off ice training 3. Travel-strict code of conduct no drinking, drugs etc.-High school...well not the same...at all. 4. Travel-deep cuts-hard to make the team, high school no cut sport 5. Travel-playing top teams around the country-High school -not strong competition in his league. 5. etc etc etc Problem: On the USNA CIS when it talks about sports it only asks about highschool sports. So it asks about high school but the levels are only: Junior Varsity Varsity (Varsity as a sophomore)-though he has played travel all the way through. Varsity Letters Earned (he did earn one sophomore year) Team Captain or Co-Captain (yes) Special Awards/ All-Star Selection (yes) This would make it look like he only played one year of a sport. He isn't sure how to answer-when he asked me I had no idea either. It would be misleading (and to his disadvantage) to mark only one year. His high school guidance counselor suggested to mark four years of varsity since travel is higher but would that be misleading as well? He can define it more in the remarks section-but he is "out of characters" as there is a character limit in the remarks section. has anyone been in the same predicament? Should he ask his BGO? this is the last part of his application and he keeps turning it around in his head.
