get your facts straight. BA FS teams are $7K...and better than any U18 USPHL team around. If commutable and your kid is good enough U16 or u18 BA is your best option.
BA a down year for this age group. Lots of stiffs on that team. BA great at u18 and u15, same for Giants.
Interesting discussion I had recently. I have an 03. Good, not great, meaning, elite player, but not stepping into ISL and making major impact as a frosh. Deciding on prep or FS next year. Had a conversation with a local college coach this week. His recommendation was U16 FS over rising pine at prep or playing at local public. Actually recommends any good public player heading club route and not staying in public. Says stay club and either get money for prep or just stay club. Feels it’s the future.
