T. McDowell, Department o f P h y s i c a l Education and Recreation, U n i v e r s i t y of B r i t i s h Columbia, Vancouver 8, B.C. Dear Mr. McDowell: You requested comments r e education and hockey. I have been i n contact with q u i t e a number o f Junior "A" hockey players i n the Pat Organization of Regina, e s p e c i a l l y when they had a very rigorous and demanding schedule. We found t h a t the organization made every e f f o r t t o avoid encroaching upon school time, and when on rare occasions i t was necessary there was always the maximum cooperation. The organization had its education o f f i c e r with whom we were i n constant l i a i s o n r e the progress o f the p l a y e r s . We have had the extremes o f player academic achievement. I b e l i e v e t h a t there i s no v a l i d proof that the p l a y i n g of hockey was so demanding that i t i n t e r f e r r e d with the achievement of the p l a y e r s . Usually there was a record o f poor achievement i n the lower grades i f they were non-achievers during the hockey period, and one might consider hockey achievement a compensation f o r l a c k of achievement academically.

Ed. and Recreation, University of B r i t i s h Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. Dear Mr. McDowell, I am returning t o you the material you requested f o r your t h e s i s . the l i b e r t y of adding a d d i t i o n a l names of players where were e n r o l l e d .  I have taken  The matter of the education of these young fellows has been one of concern to our s t a f f members f o r many years. I w i l l mention some of the problems but w i l l not go i n t o d e t a i l since I r e a l i z e they may not l i e within the scope of your t h e s i s . Hockey students usually r e g i s t e r f i r s t i n t h e i r home-town school, l a t e r t r a n s f e r here and at the end of the season return to t h e i r home school again. In recent years the l o c a l club has allowed i t s players to r e g i s t e r f o r only four classes and these must be taken i n the morning only. As you can imagine i t i s not possible to completely arrange t h e i r classes on a morning time t a b l e . As a r e s u l t they have a number of unassigned periods. Some of the boys have requested permission to attend classes f u l l days before and a f t e r hockey season. We are glad to have them do t h i s and the ones interested enough to do t h i s have usually been successful. We sometimes f e e l that the students and t h e i r parents are misled about the schooling the students w i l l receive when they come to Estevan. Some students leave when they r e a l i z e how long i t w i l l take them t o complete t h e i r education. "Hockey Scholarships" are suggested as rewards for those who are successful players. We do not know how.many of the students we have had have ever been able to c a p i t a l i z e on t h i s a i d i n order t o complete t h e i r education. We seldom have enough test r e s u l t s to send home term report cards. Most of the students have been well-behaved and fine young men. Many however become discouraged with t h i s method of obtaining an education and we cannot report success i n very many instances. I might add that we do not presume t o "check up" on the boys as f a r as t h e i r attendance i s concerned. The hockey club and the boys themselves must see to that. I am enclosing copies of the summary form we use t o report the attendance, e t c . t o the Board each month. Members of the team are considered as non-resident and the Board charges them t u i t i o n fees (which are paid by the Club). 2  2.  136  E n r o l l i n g these students at Collegiate under these conditions has proved t o be a very time-consuming task. Their i r r e g u l a r attendance i s f r u s t r a t i n g f o r the teachers and the students. A l l i n a l l we consider t h i s as an educationally unsound p r a c t i c e . May I wish you every success with your studies.  Yours very t r u l y ,  W.A.* F o r g a # Principal WAF/dg Enc.  137 A. F. FELTHAM, B.A., B.Ed.  E. L. ENO, B.A., B.Ed.

I have long been Interested in this problem nad now that I am a graduate student I have undertaken to write ay thesis on this topic. X have confined my study to the province o£ Saskatchewan and have restrictedrayaanplo to boys under the age of nineteen. There appears to be three major reasons why Junior Hockey Players withdraw from school prematurely. F i r s t , they play too many games. Second, there i s too much time lost travelling and third, they are often counselled against completing their high school by the men who coach and manage the Junior Teames I have researched the f i l e s in the department of education at Regina and X have written over forty different high schools seeking to document the scholastic records of Junior "A". Hockey players over a nine year period. Xn addition X asked the principals of the high school to state their views regarding education. Many of the letters from the principals read like an indictment against Junior Hockey. X haven't quite finished collecting and processing a l l of the data hut my preliminary results seem to approximate your own. That i s about 15% of my samples appear to have accomplished grade XIX. X w i l l forward a copy of my thesis to you when i t i s completed. . . . . /2  140  It  £Iy saaiu purpose i a writing you i o to gaia background l i t e r a t u r e for my study.
