What, the MIAA do something stupid? Come on now...
can't have your cake and eat it too.
It's not really fair to keep some half-decent kids off the varsity roster just because a few "studs" want to do both.
It's not a rule AGAINST playing for both, it's a rule ensuring that the athlete gives his/her HS FIRST priority. I.E. you cannot skip a hs practice or game for anything to do with the Club team. If you can manage to do both without missing any HS stuff and keeping your club coach/teammates happy with what you miss for them then go for it and have a ball. If not, then choices have to be made. That's life.
Couldn't agree more with this post. Play high school and stop fooling your selves. You don't need to play both HS and a U16/18 team. Have fun in high school and move on after its over. To mens league for 99.8%
Watched a high school practice Friday. Holy cow. My sons Bantam minor team moves the puck better.
