Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

I asked the guy that runs the Vikings/militia about summer teams for an 09 and his reply was that at the 14+ age groups most kids who make national bound teams skate with that team at these various tournaments. I would imagine its similar for girls. So if you make a NB team you will enter tourneys with those kids. So no trying out for Team One, Wade, etc instead its assabet patriots (possibly playing under a different name) during the summer tournament season.
what league does militia play in?

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

For Boys: PHL/BEAST.

I think its a shortened PHL season (13u) in the upper premier divison and then the BEAST league for some number of games.

for u14 it may be all BEAST

For girls: I think they play in the ESGHL but I am not entirely sure. I have not looked that far as my daughter is 10 and plays in NEGHL

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

What in the hell is the ESGHL?

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

Eastern Select Girls Hockey League. It's the league for girls programs for Militia, Imperials, NS wings, NE Pioneers, SRI, etc

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

Play another sport and forget the Summer teams. It's just a cash grab and your kid needs rest. Work on their deficiencies and stay in shape playing other sports during the Summer. Do you think the Summer teams are going to make any difference for your kid who's already playing club and prep?

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

On this forum people seem to think no hockey should be played in the summer and pretty much any summer tournament gets made fun of. Clearly people enter the tournaments regardless. I don't see what the big deal is in playing in summer tournaments as long as you have fun. Youth hockey doesn't have to be challenging, elite and competitive all the time

Re: Spring/Summer Tournament Teams

Militia is trash. Hardos all over the Thayer Rink. Don't @ me, I'm right.
