Florida Eels College Prep Agenda

With The Eels College Is Not A Dream We Make It A Reality

 Note The Dean of Sylvan Learning Center will be visiting the Ft Myers Skatium on Monday September 10that 2:34 pm. All players are required to attend this session. They are experts in this field and you should hear their presentation.  

  1. College Hockey Is a process. It takes time determination and patience
  2. All players need to take SAT or ACT (and I recommend both).

Foreign players are strongly urged to take the Tofel test as well. Tofel however is NOT and replacement or substitute for SAT or ACT testing. It is only a supplement or augmentation to reflect and demonstrate your abilities to comprehend the English language and your proficiency to understand English for college level work.

  1. Formal Prep for test:  High school, specialize schools. In person example, Sylvan Learning Centers.
  2. Online prep classes Princeton Review Kaplan etc. Google search
  3. Purchase Study aides Kaplan Princeton and a ½ dozen others
  4. You must spend minimum of 2-3 hours per day studying for SAT ACT. Example,  One Day Math one day Language One day reading. These test have so much info. There are new versions of the test so you cannot take it for granted that you do not need a program of study. You cannot do this alone!!!!!!!
  5. Every week you must take a practice test. No ifs ands or buts
  1. Have your school go on and obtain NCAA Clearinghouse. This is  Mandatory if you are going NCAA Div. 1 Men’s ice hockey
  2. High School and Part time college grades. You Need to obtain a copy of your transcripts whether you graduated or not. When you make formal application to a college you will need an official transcript sent form the college. You cannot personally send it. It must come directly from the college. It must have an official seal. Do not assume the college sent it. 50% or better colleges fail to send it on a timely basis. This can cost you admissions and financial aide. You need to verify they sent it and that the college received it.
