1.3 % of men play Division I                  2.4% of women play Division I

1.5% of men play Division II                  1.9% of women play Division II

It is because of these statistics, and based on MSC's staff (over 30 years of Division I coaching experience and over 40 years of college coaching experience on staff by far and away the most experienced staff in Mid-Michigan), that we continue to seek out ways for players interested in playing in college to market themselves. The advisor program we conduct is an idividualized program and works for anyone with the desire to play.
