As a post hoc c o n s i d e r a t i o n , two a d d i t i o n a l aspects were examined: a) The e f f e c t the new N.H.L.-C.A.H.A. Agreement has had on the withdrawal r a t e s of the Junior "A" student hockey p l a y e r s . b) The graduating age of Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s . The s e l e c t e d sample s i z e numbered 273 Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s . These p l a y e r s were s e l e c t e d from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League r e g i s t r y f o r the s i x years of 1959-61 and 1962-66. An a d d i t i o n a l 57 names were s e l e c t e d from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League r e g i s t r y from the 1967-68 season, i n order to study the e f f e c t of the new N.H.L.-C.A.H.A. Agreement signed i n May, 1967. A l l p l a y e r s s e l e c t e d were between the ages of s i x t e e n and nineteen years. The names of these Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s , the 273 of the s e l e c t e d sample and the 57 from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y , 330 i n t o t a l , were researched i n the P r o v i n c i a l Department of Education f i l e s i n Regina, Saskatchewan. The high school standing of each p l a y e r was recorded. The high school standing of those pla y e r s from whom the Department had no r e c o r d - 138 p l a y e r s - was researched by w r i t i n g d i r e c t l y to the h i g h schools i n the c i t i e s where the players had competed. Once the school records of every p l a y e r had been researched, the p l a y e r s were d i v i d e d i n t o four age groups of s i x t e e n , seventeen, eighteen and nineteen year o l d s . A t e s t of s i g n i f i c a n c e f o r proportions was a p p l i e d to determine i f a d i f f e r e n c e e x i s t e d between the withdrawal proportions of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the general popu-l a t i o n f o r each age group. Graphs were prepared to i l l u s t r a t e the three compara-t i v e aspects of the study: 1) the withdrawal r a t e s of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the general p o p u l a t i o n f o r the four age groups; 2) the withdrawal r a t e s of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the p l a y e r s s e l e c t e d from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y ; and 3) the average age at graduation f o r the s e l e c t e d sample and f o r the general p o p u l a t i o n . Within the l i m i t a t i o n s of the study, the f o l l o w i n g conclusions appear warranted: 1. There were s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t d i f f e r e n c e s i n the withdrawal proportions between the hockey p l a y i n g student samples and the general p o p u l a t i o n f o r three of the four age c l a s s i f i c a t i o n s i n the d i r e c t i o n of the hockey p l a y i n g group. a) The s i x t e e n and seventeen year o l d samples had a s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher school withdrawal propor-t i o n than that of the general p o p u l a t i o n at the .05 and .01 l e v e l s of confidence r e s p e c t i v e l y ; but these d i f f e r e n c e s could be subject to question due to the l i m i t e d sample s i z e . b) The eighteen year o l d sample had a s i g n i f i c a n t l y higher school withdrawal p r o p o r t i o n than that of the general p o p u l a t i o n at the .01 l e v e l of confidence. c) The nineteen year o l d sample withdrawal propor-t i o n was not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t from t h a t of the general p o p u l a t i o n . 2. The hockey p l a y i n g student appears to be retarded i n h i s normal progress through the ed u c a t i o n a l system to the extent t h a t h i s graduating age was on the average, approxi-mately 1.67 years o l d e r than the normal graduating age of the general p o p u l a t i o n . 3. There appears to be no decrease i n the withdrawal r a t e s of student hockey p l a y e r s as a r e s u l t of the new N.H.L.-C.A.H.A. Agreement of May, 1967.

It has long been evident that the National Hockey League (N.H.L.) dictates the conditions of the game of ice hockey in Canada. This business organiza-t i o n , whose main purpose is to earn a p r o f i t , controls a l l aspects of hockey both professional and amateur. The N.H.L. sets the general rules of the game and determines such considerations as player recruitment, placement and salary. In addition, the N.H.L. designates the location of the various professional franchises. An important aspect of N.H.L. involvement and control, in the author's opinion, is i n the area of player r e c r u i t -ment. This thesis, therefore, s h a l l address i t s e l f to the control exercised i n d i r e c t l y , by the N.H.L., over the l i v e s of young hockey players, p a r t i c u l a r l y with regard to how that control i s related to the high school education of young hockey players. The recruitment of players can occur anywhere from the age of eleven to twenty-one, with the most common age range being from seventeen to nineteen. This period i s also of p a r t i c u l a r importance to the educator for i t is during this age range that the greatest incidence of high school withdrawal occurs. After studying The Report on Amateur Hockey in Canada (1) and The Alberta Department of Youth Hockey Study (2) i t 2 became g l a r i n g l y e v i den t t ha t bo th these important documents l a cked s c i e n t i f i c a l l y r e sea r ched f a c t s . Th i s statement i s not i n t ended t o be a c r i t i c i s m o f these r e p o r t s . The l a ck o f f a c t s was p robab l y more as a r e s u l t of the n a t u r e , scope and f i n a n c i a l l i m i t a t i o n s of the i n v e s t i g a t i n g commit tees , than i t was the r e s u l t o f t h e i r i n a b i l i t y to c o l l e c t and document d a t a . Consequen t l y , however, bo th s t u d i e s are r i d d l e d w i t h suspec t but not f a c t .

The Committee observed tha t such c r i t i c i s m was s u b j e c t i v e and e m p i r i c a l ; nowhere c o u l d we f i n d o v e r a l l f a c t u a l ev idence to suppor t t h i s c o n c l u s i o n .

The A l b e r t a r e p o r t a l s o quotes a Schoo l Super in tendent (2:35) who expresses h i s d i s s a t i s f a c t i o n w i t h the system by s a y i n g : P e r s o n a l l y , and I b e l i e v e I speak f o r my s t a f f , I do not t h i n k tha t i n most cases boys can p l a y p r o f e s s i o n a l hockey (Canadian Major J un io r League Hockey) and at the same t ime be s u c c e s s -f u l s t u d e n t s . I.am.aware tha t some succeed but the g rea t pe rcentage do n o t . I would a d v i s e a l l pa ren t s to r e f u s e p e r m i s s i o n t o boys to s i g n up u n t i l they had completed t h e i r h i g h s c h o o l . 3 P r i o r t o p l a y i n g f o r a p r o f e s s i o n a l team most, i f not a l l , hockey p l a y e r s put i n a k i n d of apprenticeship w i t h one of the N.H.L. sponsored Junior "A" teams - ofte n looked upon as minor models of p r o f e s s i o n a l teams. I t i s during t h i s apprenticeship p e r i o d that p l a y e r s are subject to long and arduous p l a y i n g schedules. Nowhere i s there a b e t t e r example of p r o f e s s i o n a l sponsorship, long schedules and excessive t r a v e l than i n the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Moreover, i t i s t h i s researcher's o p i n i o n that the rigo r o u s league schedules imposed upon student hockey p l a y e r s i n h i b i t many of them from completing t h e i r high school education, thereby compounding an already considerable high-school drop-out r a t e , and i n the long run, s e r i o u s l y r e s t r i c t i n g t h e i r educational and career o p p o r t u n i t i e s . The Problem. To determine the e f f e c t of p a r t i c i p a t i o n i n Junior "A" hockey upon the withdrawal r a t e s from high school of student hockey p l a y e r s i n the province of Sa skat chewan. N u l l Hypothesis. There i s no d i f f e r e n c e between the sample p r o p o r t i o n and the po p u l a t i o n p r o p o r t i o n w i t h respect to the withdrawal rates of male high school students i n the Province of Saskatchewan. Ho : p-P = 0 Assumptions. 1. The Researcher has no i n f l u e n c e on the sample of Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s . The names of these subjects 4 w i l l be made available by the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association. (S.A.H.A.) 2. The sample of Junior "A" hockey players made available by the S.A.H.A. w i l l not be too unlike a similar sample of same age young men drawn from the population at large i n the province of Saskatchewan, other than the fact that they are involved in Junior "A" hockey. Def i n i t i o n s . 1. National Hockey League (N.H.L.) - is the governing body for professional hockey in Canada and the United States of America and has, by agreements in writing and by other working arrangements, the power to contract for and on behalf of i t s a f f i l i a t e d and/or associated minor league teams. 2. Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (C.A.H.A.) -is the governing and c o n t r o l l i n g body for Amateur Hockey in Canada. The prime purpose of the C.A.H.A. i s to provide organized p a r t i c i p a t i o n in hockey for youngsters of a l l ages. 3. The Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association (S.A.H.A.) - is the Saskatchewan body of the C.A.H.A. 4. Junior "A" Team - is an amateur team a f f i l i a t e d with one of the parent N.H.L. teams by vi r t u e of the C.A.H.A. - N.H.L. contract agreement. 5. Junior "A" Hockey Player - any player who i s registered with a Junior "A" team. 6. A drop-out - for the purposes of t h i s study, student who is nineteen years or under and who withdraws from school p r i o r to receiving a grade twelve standing. 6 REFERENCES 1.

L i t e r a t u r e p e r t a i n i n g to hockey and education; and 3. D i s c u s s i o n s , interviews and correspondence. L i t e r a t u r e P e r t a i n i n g To High School Withdrawal Rates  In The Province Of Saskatchewan. The best sources of educ a t i o n a l s t a t i s t i c s f o r the province of Saskatchewan were The Dominion Bureau of S t a t i s t i c s (Educational D i v i s i o n ) p u b l i c a t i o n s . The two Dominion Bureau of S t a t i s t i c s p u b l i -c a t i o n s which s u p p l i e d the m a j o r i t y of s t a t i s t i c s necessary f o r the t h e s i s were Student Progress Through The Schools By Age and Grade f o r 1960 (1) and f o r 1965 (2) and P r e l i m i n a r y S t a t i s t i c s of Education, 1959-1968 (3). These two sources revealed the percentage of Saskatchewan males i n the general p o p u l a t i o n who withdrew from the formal education system, at various ages. For the purposes of t h i s t h e s i s these percen-tages were recorded f o r s i x t e e n , seventeen, eighteen and nineteen year o l d boys and a comparison was made w i t h the 8 n a t i o n a l withdrawal r a t e s . The r e s u l t s have been presented i n Table I (2:21). TABLE I THE WITHDRAWAL RATES FROM FORMAL SCHOOL OF MALES IN THE GENERAL POPULATION FOR BOTH SASKATCHEWAN AND CANADA Age (yrs.)

There have been no s t u d i e s conducted i n order to assess the w i t h -drawal r a t e s of Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s i n the province of Saskatchewan. The most r e l e v a n t study to be done i n Canada was c a r r i e d out by the Ontario I n s t i t u t e f o r Studies i n Education. This study, c a l l e d The O.H.A. Junior Hockey Player-Student; an E v a l u a t i o n ( 4 ) , sought the answer to the question ". . . could i t not be that students who played hockey and were unsuccessful i n school were i n no way d i f f e r e n t from the general p o p u l a t i o n of non-hockey-playing students?" (4:27) With the a i d of a computer and the vast information i n the Carnegie Data Bank, the I n s t i t u t e compared the high school progress of 511 Ontario j u n i o r hockey p l a y e r s w i t h 25,331 non-hockey-playing students.

The A l b e r t a Committee was unab le to draw any d e c i s i v e c o n c l u s i o n s about the i n f l u e n c e o f hockey on e d u c a t i o n . The 12 Committee d i d , however, s u b s t a n t i a t e the b e l i e f t h a t Junior "A" hockey i n A l b e r t a had a d e t r i m e n t a l e f f e c t on a p l a y e r ' s educat i o n . A survey was conducted i n November, 1968, by the Ontario Hockey A s s o c i a t i o n (7) t o estimate the number of Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s who were att e n d i n g a h i g h school, u n i v e r s i t y or t e c h n o l o g i c a l i n s t i t u t e i n Ontario. The survey was compiled by/W. Hanley, secretary-manager of the A s s o c i a t i o n , and was e n t i t l e d "Report To O.H.A. Executive Committee". The t h e s i s author wrote t o Mr. Hanley to o b t a i n a complete copy of the report as w e l l as information on the methods used by the surveyors. The f i n d i n g s of the re p o r t and the correspondence from Mr. Hanley were included i n Appendix D. In h i s l e t t e r Hanley (8) explained t h a t : "The teams were asked to submit on a form the numbers, but were not asked to include any f u r t h e r information as to what grade the p l a y e r s were i n or t h e i r age." He (8) went on to apologize: " I r e g r e t that I have not been of much a s s i s t a n c e to you, as we have j u s t conducted the survey as s t a t e d above, i n a general way, but I am aware that to s t r i v e towards a goal we are going to have to make a more i n t e n s i v e study." Two magazine a r t i c l e s regarding hockey and education came to the w r i t e r ' s a t t e n t i o n . Perhaps the most p u b l i c i z e d one was w r i t t e n by lawyer A.

At the outset of the study the Executive D i r e c t o r of The Canadian Amateur Hockey A s s o c i a t i o n , Mr. G.W. Juckes (11) encouraged and a s s i s t e d the author i n every p o s s i b l e way. Mr. Juckes arranged an i n t e r v i e w f o r the author w i t h the Secretary of The Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey A s s o c i a t i o n , Mr. Ford. (12) When asked by the author, during personal i n t e r v i e w s , i f they had any knowledge of research done on education and hockey i n the province of Saskatchewan, both Mr. Juckes and Mr. Ford s a i d that they were unaware of any such i n v e s t i g a t i o n ever being conducted. Just as the author r e c e i v e d considerable a i d from hockey r e p r e s e n t a t i v e s , so too were ed u c a t i o n a l o f f i c i a l s eager to a s s i s t . The Deputy M i n i s t e r of Education, Mr. L.H. Bergstrom (13) and the Superintendent of High-School Records and Examinations, Mr. L. Ogden (14), both of the Department of Education i n the Province of Saskatchewan, h e l d frank d i s c u s s i o n s w i t h the author. Deputy M i n i s t e r Bergstrom lamented over the r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t that Junior "A" hockey appeared to have on the student hockey p l a y e r ' s progress through school. Mr. Bergstrom showed the author a l e t t e r he had j u s t r e c e i v e d from the mother of a boy who had chosen to withdraw from school at s i x t e e n years of age i n order to devote more time to h i s hockey. A f t e r p l a y i n g s e v e r a l years, the boy apparently r e a l i z e d that he was not s u i t e d to a hockey career and consequently decided to r e t u r n to school. 15 The boy was then n i ne t een yea rs of age and found i t d i f f i c u l t to r e - a d j u s t to what Mr. Bergst rom termed "normal s c h o o l d i s c i p l i n e " . The b o y ' s problems i n adhe r ing to s c h o o l r e g u l a t i o n s had r e s u l t e d i n h i s b e i n g e x p e l l e d . The l e t t e r f rom the mother was an appea l t o Mr. Bergst rom to i n t e r c e d e on her s o n ' s b e h a l f and have the boy r e - e n r o l l e d . "Such c a s e s , " s a i d Mr. Be rgs t rom, "a re not i n f r e q u e n t to the p o i n t t ha t a p a t t e r n has a lmost d e v e l o p e d . " (13) Mr. Bergs t rom f e l t t ha t these k i n d s o f s i t u a t i o n s a rose as the r e s u l t o f over-age s tudents and tha t hockey hampered the s t u d e n t s ' normal p r o g r e s s through s c h o o l and thereby c o n t r i -buted to t h i s over-age p rob lem.

As a p r i n c i p a l Mr. Ogden had a c o n s i d e r a b l e amount o f expe r i ence w i t h the hockey-p l a y i ng s t uden t . When asked i f , i n h i s o p i n i o n , the hockey-p l a y i ng s tudent was l e s s i n t e l l i g e n t and l e s s capab le a c a d e m i c a l l y than the non-hockey-p l a y i n g s t u d e n t , Mr. Ogden 1 s r e p l y was to the c o n t r a r y .

"They miss so much school and w i l l o f t e n come to teachers afterwards and ask them to teach important lessons over again; some teachers comply but the m a j o r i t y do not." (14) Mr. Ogden a l s o noted t h a t even when the p l a y e r i s i n attendance he i s o f t e n l e s s a l e r t and appears o v e r - t i r e d . During the course of researching the educational status of the t h e s i s ' sample of hockey p l a y e r s , the author had occasion to w r i t e to more than f o r t y d i f f e r e n t high schools i n the Province of Saskatchewan. These hig h schools were l o c a t e d i n c i t i e s where a Junior "A" hockey team e i t h e r was c u r r e n t l y operating or had operated i n the past. The p r i n c i p a l s of these h i g h schools were i n v i t e d to submit t h e i r views on the e f f e c t s of Junior "A" hockey on the hockey-playing student's s c h o l a s t i c performance. Many of the l e t t e r s read l i k e an indictment against Junior "A" hockey but i t i s d i f f i c u l t to dismiss t h i s independently s o l i c i t e d concensus as an educational b i a s .

I f you can play hockey the coaches and managers w i l l eagerly take you on a f t e r you have grade 12. I f you are only an average hockey p l a y e r , you need your grade twelve a l l the more. Because of my a t t i t u d e which i s e n t i r e l y supported by my s t a f f , I f e e l that hockey players may have avoided e n r o l l i n g here. There are other f a c t o r s , but our a t t i t u d e may have had some bearing. I agree most h e a r t i l y w i t h a recent a r t i c l e i n McLeans Magazine, on t h i s same t o p i c . Only e x c e p t i o n a l cases i n d i c a t e p o s s i b i l i t y of success as high school student and f u l l time Junior Hockey. Arrangements are made by coach-managers f o r attendance at sch o o l , but few have the stamina to r i d e a thousand miles on a bus during the week and play 2 to 6 games as w e l l ! This p a t t e r n i s not conducive to good school progress. I have heard a l l the arguments i n favor of combining hockey and school. But, i n my o p i n i o n , the present set up i s d e t r i m e n t a l t o our youth. There must be a b e t t e r way to develop hockey p l a y e r s and at the same time a l l o w young men to complete t h e i r education. Only one of the h a l f dozen or so hockey p l a y e r s once e n r o l l e d here - '65-66, 66-67 a c t u a l l y completed grade 12.. Very few completed t h e i r year and s e v e r a l were t r a n s f e r r e d once or twice to d i f f e r e n t c e n t e r s , i n some cases out of the province. Their e d u c a t i o n a l program was hopeless under such circumstances. F u l l d e t a i l s could be researched from our f i l e s , i f you are i n t e r e s t e d . For these reasons, I cannot accept the present arrangements of f u l l time hockey, p a r t time school. Schooling s u f f e r s badly i n a l l cases and most young f e l l o w s despair of success at school. To me i t i s a most u n f a i r s i t u a t i o n i n which to place our young men. W.A.

In November of 1968 the author t r a v e l l e d to Swift Current, Saskatchewan, where Mr. W i l l i a m Ford, Secretary of the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey A s s o c i a t i o n made a v a i l a b l e a l l of the e x i s t i n g records of those players who were r e g i s t e r e d i n the Saskatchewan Junior "A" Hockey League. The records to be found i n Appendix C date back only to the 1959-60 season, w i t h the 1961-62 and 1966-67 season records missing. Mr. Ford explained t h a t i t was only by chance that he had the e x i s t i n g records since they were u s u a l l y discarded at the end of each year. Each p l a y e r ' s name was recorded according to the team he had played f o r . Since d i r e c t p r o f e s s i o n a l sponsorship of Junior "A" teams has ended as a r e s u l t of the new agreement between the N.H.L. and the C.A.H.A., the author used only those records which accrued under the o l d agreement, th a t i s , p r i o r t o 1967. Because the 1966-67 and the 1961-62 records were u n a v a i l a b l e , the sample of hockey play e r s was drawn e n t i r e l y from the r e g i s t r y of the S.J.H.L. f o r the years 1959-60; 1960-61; 1962-63; 1963-64; 1964-65; and 1965-66. From the b i r t h d a t e s on the hockey r e g i s t r a t i o n forms, the age of each p l a y e r was determined f o r that year of r e g i s t r a t i o n . Only p l a y e r s of ages s i x t e e n t o nineteen were considered. Imported and over-age p l a y e r s were omitted. 23 S i x complete hockey seasons were surveyed. F i r s t , a l l the s i x t e e n year o l d p l a y e r s were recorded f o r the s i x year p e r i o d . Next, a l l the seventeen year o l d players were recorded, then a l l the eighteen year-olds and f i n a l l y , the nineteen year o l d p l a y e r s were recorded. Because players of t e n p l a y two or three years f o r the same Junior "A" team, care was taken to avoid the double r e c o r d i n g of one p l a y e r . That i s , i f the pl a y e r q u a l i f i e d i n the hockey sample as a s i x t e e n year o l d , h i s name was removed from a l l the subse-quent l i s t s t o ensure that he would not be included again as a seventeen, eighteen or nineteen year o l d i n the f o l l o w i n g years. Through t h i s procedure the subjects f o r the t h e s i s sample were c o l l e c t e d . The sample c o n s i s t e d of 273 d i f f e r e n t hockey pla y e r s who played i n the S.J.H.L. over a s i x year p e r i o d p r i o r to the new agreement between the C.A.H.A. and the N.H.L. An a d d i t i o n a l 57 playe r s from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y were a l s o i d e n t i f i e d i n order to make a comparison w i t h withdrawal r a t e s of student hockey pla y e r s since the s i g n i n g of the new agreement. The hockey p l a y e r s , a l l between s i x t e e n and nineteen years of age, numbered 330 i n t o t a l ; 273 p r i o r to the new agreement, and 57 a f t e r the new agreement. Researching The Educ a t i o n a l Records of The Hockey  P l a y e r s . With the t h e s i s sample determined, the author t r a v e l l e d to Regina, Saskatchewan, where the P r o v i n c i a l Department of Education o f f i c e s are lo c a t e d . At the 24 d i s c r e t i o n of the Deputy M i n i s t e r of Education, and w i t h the a s s i s t a n c e of four members of the Department's s t a f f , one f u l l day was spent i n researching the s c h o l a s t i c records of both the 273 p l a y e r s i n the t h e s i s sample and the a d d i t i o n a l 57 p l a y e r s of the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y . The Depart-ment kept records only f o r grades eleven and twelve. Of the 330 names i n v e s t i g a t e d i n the Department's f i l e s , 138 p l a y e r s had no record of ever having w r i t t e n a grade eleven or twelve exam. To research the e d u c a t i o n a l status of these 138 p l a y e r s , completion forms were made up and organized according t o team. These forms l i s t e d the players name, b i r t h d a t e and the year he was r e g i s t e r e d as a p l a y e r f o r that team. The forms were then sent out f o r completion to forty-two d i f f e r e n t h i g h schools i n the r e s p e c t i v e c i t i e s where the p l a y e r s had competed. Two l e t t e r s - r e f e r to Appendix B - accompanied these completion forms; one from the author e x p l a i n i n g the information r e q u i r e d , and the other from the Deputy M i n i s t e r of Education, L.H. Bergstrom, endorsing the study and requesting a s s i s t a n c e . Both l e t t e r s were included i n Appendix B. I t was found that of these 138 p l a y e r s f o r whom the Department of Education had no records, 113 belonged to the t h e s i s sample. That i s , they had played Junior "A" hockey p r i o r to the 1967 agreement. The remaining 25 p l a y e r s were from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y and went to make up that l i s t of 57 names. S t a t i s t i c a l Procedure. D e s c r i p t i v e t a b l e s were 25 compiled; one d e s c r i b i n g the t h e s i s sample and the other d e s c r i b i n g the group from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y . The formula Z = p -_.P. (1:49) was used to c a l c u l a t e TPx 1-P N the s i g n i f i c a n c e of d i f f e r e n c e between the withdrawal proportions of the selected, hockey sample and of the general p o p u l a t i o n of males i n Saskatchewan. A c o r r e c t i o n f a c t o r f o r d i s c o n t i n u i t y was employed. Z values were accepted as s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t at the .05 l e v e l of confidence f o r a t w o - t a i l e d t e s t . Graphs were prepared i l l u s t r a t i n g three f a c e t s of the study: 1. The d i f f e r e n c e s between the withdrawal rates of the Junior "A" hockey players i n the t h e s i s sample and the .withdrawal r a t e s of the general p o p u l a t i o n of males i n the Province of Saskatchewan; 2. A comparison of the withdrawal r a t e s p r i o r to the new 1967 N.H.L.- C.A.H.A. agreement w i t h the apparent withdrawal r a t e s f o l l o w i n g the new agreement; and 3. A comparison between the average age at which hockey p l a y e r s i n the t h e s i s sample graduated from hig h s c h o o l , and the average age at which non-hockey-playing males i n Saskatchewan's general p o p u l a t i o n graduated. 26 REFERENCES 1.

The t o t a l number of p l a y e r s i n the t h e s i s sample was two hundred seventy-three, of these, ninety-seven had achieved grade twelve w h i l e one hundred seventy-six had withdrawn, r e s u l t i n g i n an o v e r a l l withdrawal r a t e of 64.4 percent. The s i z e of the samples of s i x t e e n and seventeen year olds was extremely s m a l l . There appeared to be two major reasons f o r the l i m i t e d number of s i x t e e n and seventeen year o l d s . F i r s t , the normal age group f o r Junior "A" hockey playe r s was between the ages of eighteen t o twenty years, because not very many boys were good enough to make the team and play r e g u l a r l y at s i x t e e n or seventeen years of age. Second, since the teams were r e s t r i c t e d to r e g i s t e r i n g nineteen p l a y e r s per season, the coaches and managers r e g i s t e r e d t h e i r younger players as j u v e n i l e s - the s i x t e e n to eighteen age range - thereby l e a v i n g t h e i r j u n i o r cards open to r e g i s t e r o l d e r p l a y e r s or to p i c k up a d d i t i o n a l players during the p l a y o f f s . Many of the b e t t e r j u v e n i l e p l a y e r s p r a c t i s e d every day and o f t e n played w i t h the j u n i o r team; but because they were r e g i s t e r e d i n the j u v e n i l e r e g i s t r y they d i d not appear on the j u n i o r r e g i s t r y , and t h e r e f o r e were not e l i g i b l e f o r i n c l u s i o n i n the t h e s i s sample. I t i s e n t i r e l y p o s s i b l e f o r a j u v e n i l e hockey 29 pl a y e r to p r a c t i s e and play w i t h the parent Junior "A" team during those times when h i s own j u v e n i l e team i s not p l a y i n g . When t h i s happens, the j u v e n i l e p l a y e r i s involved i n twice as much hockey. Such a h e c t i c hockey schedule f o r the s i x t e e n or seventeen year o l d j u v e n i l e p l a y e r cannot help but have a d e t r i m e n t a l e f f e c t on h i s school progress. The p r a c t i c e of grooming players who have shown p o t e n t i a l a b i l i t y at an e a r l y age has long been the secret of p l a y e r development f o r many of the s u c c e s s f u l p r o f e s s i o n a l teams. To estimate the e f f e c t t h a t t h i s e a r l y emphasis on hockey has on a p l a y e r s ' academic achievement would be d i f f i c u l t . In view of the absence of r e l a t e d l i t e r a t u r e , e a r l y grooming may or may not have an e f f e c t on a student hockey pl a y e r ' s academic achievement.

This sample was i d e n t i f i e d and the t a b l e compiled i n order to study the p o t e n t i a l e f f e c t t h a t the new N.H.L. -C.A.H.A. agreement might have on the withdrawal r a t e s from high school of Junior "A" p l a y e r s . In Table I I I , the four age groups, s i x t e e n , seventeen, eighteen and nineteen years were l i s t e d , along w i t h t a b u l a -t i o n s of sample s i z e , grade twelve achievement, and withdrawals, f o r each of the four age groups. F i v e players f e l l i n t o the s i x t e e n year o l d age group. None had achieved grade twelve, meaning that a l l f i v e had withdrawn; r e s u l t i n g i n a 100 percent withdrawal r a t e . In the seventeen year o l d group, only one of the s i x p l a y e r s i n tha t sample had achieved grade twelve, w h i l e f i v e had withdrawn; r e s u l t i n g i n a 83.3 percent withdrawal r a t e . Eighteen p l a y e r s made up the eighteen year o l d sample. Only two of these eighteen had achieved grade twelve w h i l e s i x t e e n had withdrawn; r e s u l t i n g i n a withdrawal r a t e of 88.9 percent. The sample of nineteen year olds contained twenty-eight p l a y e r s , of whom only three had achieved grade twelve w h i l e twenty-five had withdrawn; r e s u l t i n g i n a very high withdrawal r a t e of 89-3 percent. When the r e s u l t s of t h i s sample from the 1967-68 R e g i s t r y were considered, two things were noteworthy. F i r s t , 31 the sample s i z e was q u i t e s m a l l , on l y f i f t y - s e v e n p l a y e r s , and the w i thdrawa l r a t e s f o r the v a r i ous age groups must be c o n s i d e r e d w i th t h i s p o i n t i n mind.

A more v a l i d compa r i -son c o u l d on l y be made a f t e r the agreement has been i n e f f e c t f o r a l onge r p e r i o d o f t ime . A s t a t i s t i c a l compar ison of the two samples , hockey p l a y e r s and gene r a l p o p u l a t i o n , f o r each of the f o u r age groups has been r e p o r t e d i n T a b l e IV.

In e a r l i e r comments, p o s s i b l e 35 reasons were suggested f o r the small sample of s i x t e e n year o l d s . The f i r s t reason suggested was the p r a c t i c e of carding p l a y e r s who were under the normal Junior age (18-20 years) on J u v e n i l e (16-18 years) cards. The second reason mentioned was the f a c t that few p l a y e r s are good enough, at s i x t e e n , t o win a p o s i t i o n on a Junior "A" team.

However, owing t o the c r i t i c a l l y l i m i t e d sample s i z e , the v a l i d i t y of the Z va lue f o r s i x t e e n year o lds must be sub j e c t to q u e s t i o n .

There were twenty-e ight sub j e c t s i n the hockey p l a y e r sample f o r t h i s age g roup , seven t imes as many as i n the s i x t e e n year o l d sample . Twenty-e ight was s t i l l a sma l l sample and was r e s t r i c t e d f o r the same reasons tha t p e r t a i n e d to the s i x t e e n yea r o l d sample. However, because the d i f f e r e n c e i n w i t h -drawal p r o p o r t i o n s was s i g n i f i c a n t f o r bo th the age groups immediate ly p r e c e d i n g ( s i x t e e n year o lds ) and immediate ly f o l l o w i n g ( e igh teen yea r o l d s ) , a Z va lue o f 3.175 r e p o r t e d f o r the seventeen year o l d sample appears t o be q u i t e v a l i d . The sample of e i gh t een year o l d hockey p l a y e r s (n inety-seven) was c o n s i d e r a b l y l a r g e r than e i t h e r of the p r e v i ous samples o f s i x t e e n and seventeen year o l d s . Th i s r e f l e c t s the f a c t t ha t most J un io r " A " p l a y e r s f a l l between the ages o f e i gh t een and twenty y e a r s .

For one age group, the nineteen year o l d s , the w i t h -drawal p r o p o r t i o n of males i n the general p o p u l a t i o n exceeded those of the s e l e c t e d sample of hockey p l a y e r s . The Z value (-1.88), reported i n Table IV as a negative value, s i g n i f i e d a higher withdrawal r a t e i n favour of the general p o p u l a t i o n . The reason f o r the i n o r d i n a t e r e t e n t i o n of hockey p l a y e r s was b e l i e v e d to be as a r e s u l t of the r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t that p l a y i n g hockey had on the student hockey p l a y e r ' s progress through school. This e f f e c t was a l l u d e d to by L.H. Bergstrom (2) and by A.J.C. King and C.E. Angi (3). Bergstrom suggested that p l a y i n g Junior "A" hockey o f t e n c o n t r i b u t e d t o a normal student becoming an over-age student. Because hockey pl a y e r s are o f t e n encouraged to stay i n school and get t h e i r education, King and Angi (3:27) r e f e r r e d to what they c a l l a "syndrome" that produces hockey p l a y e r s who stay i n school but perform p o o r l y . Thus i t would appear that there i s a r e a l and important r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t operating on the Junior "A" hockey p l a y i n g student's normal progress through school. The withdrawal proportions of the t h e s i s sample and the general p o p u l a t i o n appear to be f a i r l y equal f o r the nineteen year o l d s . This was not meant to imply that those students ( i n the two samples) who are s t i l l i n school at nineteen are i n any way s i m i l a r or are r e t a i n e d i n school 38 f o r s i m i l a r reasons. A comparison of withdrawal r a t e s of the s e l e c t e d sample of hockey pla y e r s - r e f e r to Table I I - w i t h the withdrawal r a t e s of the general male po p u l a t i o n i n the Province of Saskatchewan - r e f e r to Table I - and a graphic r e p r e s e n t a t i o n of the d i s p a r i t y between the drop-out r a t e s f o r the various ages has been i l l u s t r a t e d i n Figure 2. For the s i x t e e n year o l d age group 21.2 percent of the males i n the general p o p u l a t i o n were reported to have withdrawn w h i l e 75.0 percent of the hockey p l a y e r sample had withdrawn. With regard to the seventeen year o l d age group, i t was reported that 34.1 percent of the general population sample had withdrawn as compared to 64.3 percent of the hockey p l a y e r sample. The eighteen year o l d age group showed a 48.0 percent withdrawal r a t e f o r the general popu-l a t i o n and a 68.0 percent withdrawal r a t e f o r the hockey p l a y e r sample. The nineteen year o l d group i n d i c a t e d a r e v e r s a l of the withdrawal trend. For the general p o p u l a t i o n sample of nineteen year o l d s , the withdrawal r a t e was 69.4 percent w h i l e the hockey p l a y e r sample withdrawal r a t e was only 61.8 percent. As was noted e a r l i e r , the reduced withdrawal r a t e of nineteen year o l d hockey p l a y e r s was thought to be p r i m a r i l y a t t r i b u t a b l e to the r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t which p l a y i n g hockey has on a student's normal progress through the e d u c a t i o n a l system. This r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t has been 39 K e y : W i t h d r a w a l R a t e s •o f G e n e r a l P o p u l a t i o n Age Groups ( y r s . ) FIGURE 2 GRAPHIC COMPARISON OF THE WITHDRAWAL PERCENTAGES FOR THE FOUR AGE CLASSIFICATIONS BETWEEN THE SELECTED SAMPLE AND THE GENERAL POPULATION 40 i l l u s t r a t e d s y m b o l i c a l l y by means of a graph i n Figu r e 3. In F i g u r e 3, the average age at graduation was com-pared f o r the general male po p u l a t i o n and f or the s e l e c t e d sample of hockey p l a y e r s .

The frequency d i s t r i -b u t i o n d e p i c t i n g the average age at graduation of the s e l e c -ted sample of hockey pla y e r s was represented by the shaded graph. Both d i s t r i b u t i o n s were n e g a t i v e l y skewed to favour more frequent graduation a f t e r the i n d i c a t e d mean age f o r each group. E i g h t y - e i g h t percent of a l l males who graduated from high school i n the Province of Saskatchewan d i d so between the ages of 16 and 18 years w i t h the average age being 17 years 0 months (4:30). For the s e l e c t e d sample of Junior "A" p l a y e r s , the age at high school graduation ranged from 16-29 years w i t h the average age being 18 years 8 months. This f a c t i n d i c a t e d that p l a y i n g hockey appears to have, on the average, a r e t a r d i n g e f f e c t of almost two years upon the student hockey p l a y e r ' s normal progress through the educational system. The Ontario Hockey Study done by A.J.C. King and C.E. Angi appeared i n i t s e n t i r e t y i n The Report on Amateur Hockey i n Canada (5).

I t would appear that the s t a t i s t i c a l and g r a p h i c a l i n d i c a t i o n s found i n Table IV and Figure 3 r e s p e c t i v e l y , revealed two very important f a c t s regarding the hockey p l a y i n g student. I n i t i a l l y , the p r o b a b i l i t y of a high school student remaining i n the e d u c a t i o n a l system wh i l e p a r t i c i p a t i n g i n Junior "A" hockey i s q u i t e low. Secondly, i f he does remain i n school w h i l e p l a y i n g hockey, i t takes him longer - i n terms of years to achieve h i s Grade X I I standing than h i s non-playing counterpart. Apart from higher withdrawal r a t e s and retarded progress through s c h o o l , i t would a l s o appear that the hockey p l a y i n g student tends to perform considerably more poor l y than the non-hockey-playing student. Three d i f f e r e n t Saskatchewan hig h school p r i n c i p a l s have commented d i r e c t l y on t h i s p o i n t . C.G. Forbes (6) s t a t e d t h a t : "In the m a j o r i t y of cases t h e i r s c h o o l i n g i s so badly neglected that they may as w e l l drop i t completely." J.A.

CHAPTER V SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION The t h e s i s s t u d i e d the withdrawal r a t e s from high school of Junior "A" hockey pl a y e r s as compared to the general p o p u l a t i o n i n the Province of Saskatchewan. As a post hoc c o n s i d e r a t i o n , two a d d i t i o n a l aspects were examined: a) The e f f e c t the new N.H.L.-C.A.H.A. agreement has had on the withdrawal rates of the Junior "A" student hockey p l a y e r s . b) The graduating age of Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s . The s e l e c t e d sample s i z e numbered 273 Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s . These play e r s were s e l e c t e d from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League r e g i s t r y f o r the s i x years of .1959-61 and 1962-66. An a d d i t i o n a l 57 names were s e l e c t e d from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League r e g i s t r y f o r the 1967-68 season, i n order to study the e f f e c t of the new N.H.L.-C.A.H.A. Agreement signed i n May, 1967. A l l p l a y e r s s e l e c t e d were between the ages of s i x t e e n and nineteen years. The names of these Junior "A" hockey p l a y e r s , the 273 of the s e l e c t e d sample and the 57 from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y , 330 i n t o t a l , were researched i n the P r o v i n c i a l Department of Education f i l e s i n Regina, Saskatchewan. The high school standing of each p l a y e r was recorded. The high school 46 standing of those p l a y e r s from whom the Department had no record - 138 p l a y e r s - was researched by w r i t i n g d i r e c t l y to the h i g h schools i n the c i t i e s where the p l a y e r s had competed. Once the school records of every p l a y e r had been researched, the p l a y e r s were d i v i d e d i n t o four age groups of s i x t e e n , seventeen, eighteen and nineteen year o l d s . A t e s t of s i g n i f i c a n c e f o r proportions was a p p l i e d to determine i f a d i f f e r e n c e e x i s t e d between the withdrawal proportions of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the general popula-t i o n f o r each age group. Graphs were prepared to i l l u s t r a t e the three compara-t i v e aspects of the study: 1) the withdrawal r a t e s of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the general p o p u l a t i o n f o r the four age groups; 2) the withdrawal r a t e s of the s e l e c t e d sample and of the p l a y e r s s e l e c t e d from the 1967-68 r e g i s t r y ; and 3) the average age at graduation f o r the s e l e c t e d sample and f o r the general p o p u l a t i o n . W i t h i n the l i m i t a t i o n s of the study, the f o l l o w i n g conclusions appear warranted: 1. There were s t a t i s t i c a l l y s i g n i f i c a n t d i f f e r e n c e s i n the withdrawal proportions between the hockey p l a y i n g student sample and the general p o p u l a t i o n f o r three of the four age c l a s s i f i c a t i o n s i n the d i r e c t i o n of the hockey p l a y i n g group. a) The s i x t e e n and seventeen year o l d samples had a s i g n i f i c a n t l y h i g h e r s c h o o l w i thdrawa l p r o p o r t i o n than tha t o f the g e n e r a l p o p u l a t i o n at the .05 and .01 l e v e l s o f con f i dence r e s p e c t i v e l y ; but these d i f f e r e n c e s c o u l d be sub j e c t t o q u e s t i o n due to the l i m i t e d sample s i z e . b) The e i gh t een year o l d sample had a s i g n i f i c a n t l y h i g h e r s c h o o l w i thdrawa l p r o p o r t i o n than tha t o f the g e n e r a l p o p u l a t i o n at the .01 l e v e l o f c o n f i d e n c e . c) The n i ne t een year o l d sample w i thdrawa l p r o p o r -t i o n was not s i g n i f i c a n t l y d i f f e r e n t f rom tha t o f the g e n e r a l p o p u l a t i o n . 2.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: This l e t t e r w i l l introduce Michael McDowell, graduate student at the U n i v e r s i t y of B r i t i s h Columbia. Mr. McDowell i s w r i t i n g a thesis on the high school with-drawal rates of Junior "A" hockey players i n the Province of Saskatchewan.

Sorry about the inordinately large number of copies, but in order to be thorough 1 must write over 40 different schools in eight cities. 126 PvoVince of Saskatchewan LHB/mj DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION O F F I C E O F T H E D E P U T Y M I N I S T E R Avord Tower, Regina, Saskatchewan. December 10, 1968. Dear Mr. McDowell: In reply to your l e t t e r of December 3, I have prepared and enclose herewith 50 copies of a l e t t e r of introduction f o r your use i n communicating with Saskatchewan high schools i n connection with your thesis research. I hope i t w i l l serve your purpose and also that the format I have used w i l l not upset your plans too much. By way of explanation, I decided to do i t t h i s way for two reasons: 1. I f e l t that a l e t t e r of introduction should avoid being very precise as to the data required, as t h i s should i n a l l l i k e l i h o o d be contained i n in s t r u c t i o n s from yourself to the respondents. In looking at the format of data required, i t seemed to me that you would wish i n your questionnaire to set out f a i r l y f u l l y the purpose to which the information e l i c i t e d would be put, some d e f i n i t i o n of terms -- e.g. whether 'enrolled' means enrolled as of t h i s term or l a s t term, standing obtained, etc. As an outsider looking i n , I think I would want some i n t e r p r e t a t i o n of 'no record' for on the surface at l e a s t , I would think that had a student enrolled, there would have to be a record of some kind. I mention these points only because our exper-ience with questionnaires i s that i f there i s any way of misinterpreting them, there are some respondents c e r t a i n to do so. Consequently, to ensure the most r e l i a b l e data we t r y to be as precise, c l e a r , and simple as possible i n str u c t u r i n g the form. 2. I have assumed that since you would be preparing a question-naire with i n s t r u c t i o n s to accompany the l e t t e r of introdu-t i o n , the purpose of my l e t t e r i s e s s e n t i a l l y to s o l i c i t the co-operation of the schools i n furnishing you the data you require and not so much to explain what you need. 127 - 2 -I hope that my approach and assumptions i n t h i s connection are i n l i n e with what you are planning. You might be interested to know that your Director very k i n d l y wrote to us following your report to him of your v i s i t here. We s i n c e r e l y appreciated your own thoughtfulness and kindness and h i s courtesy i n passing along a word of appreciation, which i n c i d e n t a l l y , I have communicated to the people to whom i t i s due -- Mr. Ogden and h i s s t a f f . With every good wish for the success of your project. I f we can be of any further assistance, please f e e l free to c a l l on us at any time. Yours f a i t h f u l l y , L. H.

T. McDowell, Department of Physical Education and Recreation, University of B r i t i s h Columbia, Vancouver 8, B.C. Dear Mr. McDowell: You requested comments re education and hockey. I have been i n contact with quite a number of Junior "A" hockey players i n the Pat Organization of Regina, especially when they had a very rigorous and demanding schedule. We found that the organization made every e f f o r t to 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 re the progress of the players. We have had the extremes of player academic achievement. I believe that there i s no v a l i d proof that the playing of hockey was so demanding that i t interferred with the achievement of the players. Usually there was a record of 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 lack of achievement academically.

McDowell, Department of Physical Education and Recreation, U n i v e r s i t y of B r i t i s h Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. Dear Mr. McDowell: We have had some d i f f i c u l t y l o c a t i n g a l l the records you requested. However, Mrs. L. H i l l , the o f f i c e Secretary, has gone through the r e g i s t e r s c a r e f u l l y f o r the periods stated. I believe some of these students may have attended St. Henry's R.C.S.S. i n M e l v i l l e . They also e n r o l l Grades IX - XII. Examples may be: David Halme, Ken D i e t r i c h , Raymond Boisvert, etc. On the other hand I believe there were others you d i d not include at our school e.g. Ralph L o r t i e from the Yukon. Now regarding my views. Most of the students playing hockey neglected t h e i r school work. Some of the coaches here were very f a i r with us such as Don Abel of M e l v i l l e and Paul Bozack (now S h e r i f f at Moose Jaw). There were exceptions to t h i s neglect. One was Harvey Schmidt who persisted i n completing his work at school. Another was L o r t i e of Whitehorse, Yukon, who came here on a $1000 scholarship from the Yukon T e r r i t o r i a l Government. By coming to Saskatchewan he saved himself from Grade XIII and entered d i r e c t l y i n t o the U.B.C. the following year a f t e r obtaining Grade XII here. - -• Another student, who r e a l l y neglected h i s Grade XII ( P a r t i a l ) here was Norman (Ted Hargreaves) but who pursued hi s hockey and high school work s u f f i c i e n t l y w e ll to make the National Team. I am not sure how much help we have been to you but we s h a l l make further information a v a i l a b l e to you i f you need i t and we can supply i t .

Ed. and Recreation, University of Br i t i sh Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. Dear Mr. McDowell, I am returning to you the material you requested for your thesis . I have taken the l iber ty of adding additional names of players where were enrolled. The matter of the education of these young fellows has been one of concern to our s taf f members for many years. I w i l l mention some of the problems but w i l l not go into deta i l since I real ize they may not l i e within the scope of your thesis . Hockey students usually register f i r s t in their home-town school, la ter trans-fer here and at the end of the season return to their home school again. In recent years the loca l club has allowed i t s players to register for only four classes and these must be taken in the morning only. As you can imagine i t i s not possible to completely arrange the i r classes on a morning time table. As a result they have a number of unassigned periods. Some of the boys have requested permission to attend classes f u l l days before and after hockey season. We are glad to have them do this and the ones interested enough to do th is have usually been successful. We sometimes fee l that the students and their parents are misled about the schooling the students w i l l receive when they come to Estevan. Some students leave when they real ize how long i t w i l l take them to complete the 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 capital ize on th is aid i n order to complete their education. We seldom have enough test results to send home term report cards. Most of the students have been well-behaved and fine young men. Many however become discouraged with th is method of obtaining an education and we cannot report success i n very many instances. I might add that we do not presume to "check up" on the boys as far as their 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 to report the attendance, etc. to the Board each month. Members of the team are considered as non-resident and the Board charges them tu i t ion fees (which are paid by the Club). 2 2. 136 Enrolling these students at Collegiate under these conditions has proved to be a very time-consuming task. Their irregular attendance i s frustrating for the teachers and the students. A l l i n a l l we consider this as an educationally unsound practice. May I wish you every success with your studies.

Dear Mr. McDowell: J u s t a few random thoughts re e d u c a t i o n and hockey. I have every sympathy f o r most lads who have p l a y e d f o r our l o c a l J u n i o r A team* T h i s i s based on s e v e r a l years of o b s e r v a t i o n .

The ones t h a t had i t toughest were those brought i n from o t h e r p r o v i n c e s (mostly A l b e r t a and B.C.) I have known up to about 7 or 8, (mostly l o c a l boys) i n 10 years or so„who have s u c c e s s f u l l y combined hockey and e d u c a t i o n . They p e r s o n a l l y deserve a l o t of c r e d i t . In my o p i n i o n , the hockey people put hockey f i r s t and educ a t i o n a d i s t a n t second. I don't want to get wound up on t h i s t o p i c . By the way, I have been and s t i l l am an a c t i v e p a r t i c i p a n t and f a n as f a r as s p o r t i s concerned.

Yours truly, MM: 11 Michael McDowell January 289 1969 Mr0 Allan Eagleson, Direstor s The national Hockey League Player Association, Dear Mr. Eagleson; • X read your article in the December issue of MacLeans Magazine regarding the standard of education among professional hockey players. 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 restricted ray aanplo to boys under the age of nineteen. There appears to be three major reasons why Junior Hockey Players withdraw from school prematurely. First, 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 files 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 is about 15% of my samples appear to have accomplished grade XIX. X will forward a copy of my thesis to you when i t is completed. . . . . /2 140 It £Iy saaiu purpose i a writing you io to gaia background literature for my study. I am currently writing the review of literature chapter and I thought that you could perhaps furnish me with a bibliography or other material relevant to my theses.

ONTARIO AMATEUR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION, Dear Mr. Hanley; I read with intBrest a summary of your report t o the Ontario Hockey Association Executive Committee regarding Junior "A" Hockey Players attending school. I am currently writing a thesis on the \ high school withdrawal rates of Junior "A" Hockey players i n the Province of Saskatchewan. \ v I would greatly appreciate a complete copy of your survey as I would l i k e t o include i t as part of my review of l i t e r a t u r e . Also i t would be very b e n e f i c i a l to me i f you could indicate the number of boys i n each grade and t h e i r age. In addition, I understand that you surveyed teams outside your province. I f t h i s i s so I would be intensely interested i n your findings. The major purpose of my study i s to determine i f playing Junior "A" Hockey i s detrimental t o a boy obtaining his high school diploma. Within, the framework of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, the preliminary r e s u l t s of my thesis seem to indicate that Junior Hockey i s a deterent t o education. I have researched more than 300 players over a nine year period i n the f i l e s of the Saskatchewan Department of Education. I t appears that approximately 15% of these players have achieved Grade XII. In addition I wrote over 40 different high schools i n c i t i e s that have sponsored JQnior "A" teams. Many of the l e t t e r s which have been returned t o me from the various principles read l i k e an indictment against Junior Hockey. I have enclosed a copy of my research design for your consideration along with a copy of your own summary report so that you w i l l know the information I already have.

McDowell, School of Physical Education & Recreation, University of Br i t i s h Columbia, Vancouver 8, Canada. Dear S i r : Re your letter and enclosed data of February 3rd., 1969, our Survey to obtain the information on the Report was not too wide i n i t s scope. The teams were asked to submit on a form the numbers, but were not asked to include any further information as to what grades the players were i n or their age. The only two teams that we obtained the information from outside the Ontario Branch were the Ottawa 67* s and the Montreal Canadien Juniors who are playing i n the O.H.A. Junior "A" Series. It i s our intention to institute a form, and possibly this w i l l not take place u n t i l next season, for each player, i n order that the office here may make a pro-gressive study of their grades. We hope to make suggestions to our member teams with regards to the progress of any "player, advocating extra help or other measures. We are quite proud i n the O.H.A. of the efforts of our Junior "A" operators to provide an opportunity for education as the record and our survey indicates. We, of course, have no jurisdiction over teams adt ' -h j ih our League, and fe e l that each League should stand on i t s own merits rather than be lumped together. In this way, the individual problem can be pin-pointed. ANNUAL MEETING APRIL 26TH, 1969 144 -2-I might point out i n your d e f i n i t i o n s regarding a Junior "A" team that no teams are now a f f i l i a t e d or sponsored by "parent N.H.L. teams by vi r t u e of the C.A.H.A. - N.H.L. Contract Agreement". I regret that I have not been of much assistance to you, as we have just conducted the survey as stated above, i n a general way, but I am aware that to s t r i v e towards a goal we are going to have to make a more intensive study.
