I’ll answer a couple of the questions I’ve seen here in the chat.

We look at boys aged 16-20 typically. It is common for us to consider a player who has been out of high school for a year or two. Often the gap year allows a young man to develop further and to be more ready to play at the U SPORTS level. Top-10 programs in U SPORTS are often (not always) a bit older than some of the other teams outside of the top-10. This does not mean that a good 18 year old does not compete well - it all depends on the individual player.

U SPORTS has a draft into the Canadian Premier League and players can sign a CPL contract and still play U SPORTS if they are on the appropriate contract. These are typically the very best players in all of U SPORTS.

how much is a full ride?

Most train 6 days per week in the fall semester and 4-5 days per week in the winter semester. Typically 20-25 hours per week (practice, meetings, travel, matches, etc) . Winter semester is approximately 12 hours per week at StFX and I would estimate this is typical in schools we offer year-round programs.

Typical day: rise and shine, two morning lifts per week (in season), go to classes, may have a unit practice or individual session (Tues or Wed) during the day, team practice after classes (90-120 mins). Scouting/game prep meeting the night before a match. One day off per week. 1-2 games per week. Bus travel is 2.5-5 hours (one way) per away game for us.
