Can you play high school and u18 or Jr team?

Can someone play high school varsity hockey and U18 or Jr's team at the same time under MIAA rules.

You cannot get CAUGHT missing a practice or game. Someone has to care enough to be keeping track, someone has to turn you in, and the MIAA has to want to make an issue of it.

Player skipping high school games or practices for club team games or practices has to sit out 25% of games for 1st offense and 50% of games for 2nd offense. If player gets called on it and didn't sit out, team forfeits those games and more than likely misses any post season play. For better or worse, it's far more likely a parent from your own team is going to call you on it and run to the AD, than an opposing team is. Either way, it's not worth the risk once a kid makes varsity, which is why most coaches and schools ask you not to do it.

Hockey parent motto: "If I can screw your kid it will make mine better"

That should be put at the top of the "Hockey Parent's Gospel" or things not to do list.

A prior poster mentions "making varsity." For a U18 player, that likely isn't an accomplishment. I have to think if a kid is thinking about playing for a full season U18 or Junior team, their HS team is not strong. We aren't talking U14 here.

If a parent wants to narc on a kid that is trying to help them to be better, it only hurts the team. Sitting out HS games and practices is putting the kid back in the same position they would be if they hadn't played - playing solely for their likely better U18/Junior full season team.
