CT boys ramping it up to tear up the festival this weekend. Great idea getting the boys on the ice before they head off to the White Mountain State. Moms and dads along the dasher sizing up the competition yesterday.Some good buzz / chatter along the glass.......
“Team Connecticut is an all-star team. The best nine forwards, six defensemen, and two goalies are selected at each age group (by birth year) during a competitive try-out to represent Connecticut in the New England Yankee Conference Festival”
The only thing dirtier than the guys running CHC nowadays ... the bathroom floors in that rink. Time for a change of leadership and venue.
There is a roster, in fact there is already another roster of the 30 boys that show the best at the event and will square off in an all star game on Sunday afternoon. Some guy up behind the glass had it in his hand yesterday. How can this be? All star team picked before camp starts? Never seen this guy before. Looked ****** off, was mumbling something. Boy oh boy, some characters there for sure. Some of them of past dboard fame. Book your rooms, scan the crowd, this one sux, that one sux. Have a beer or 16 and talk talk talk. Do yourself a favor, take your sons ssat report, ask the coaches up front what his chances will be with the 15 percentile score he clutched and grabbed to get. Save his and your time and move on. Not everyone can go to Choate, doesn’t make your kid a bad kid by no means. Enjoy the scene and please do report back.
Ssat? What the heck is that? Is that the new invite only elite league? Who do I call to get my boy a spot?
Is it used for screening in that invite only elite league too? Did SSAT scores count at Team CT tryout? Heard this AM that kids were picked that were not at tryouts? Perhaps they were taking this SSAT thing?
Where did they play this weekend? Any surprises? Would love to see a roster.
3 games in Cromwell
Choate might be an academic powerhouse but their hockey team is horrible. They might place one kid a year into a college program.
Live Barn is a great thing. Some of the favors being exposed.
Still no roster posting? So its no big deal to "make" it?
All star teams , hmmmmmm. Lots of 860 and 203 area code boys playing Thursday afternoon. Does anyone really think these were the top players up there?
Shocker! Just another fund raising camp being run by a bunch of overweight, non qualified, former HS hockey and DIII players turned "coaches", many of whom have been stealing people's money down in CT for years! Everybody rides! The sad thing is, there's no shortage of parents being duped by these losers ... over and over again! Some who can't even afford to spend the $700 on top of it but the fear of missing out is far too much to overcome. Can't wait for Natty list to come out ... should be a heavy CT presence given the Mid Fairfield and Yale influence on this money maker!
Suggestion for next year ... just hold the **** thing in CT and save everyone some time and gas money.
Forget the player roster ... it would be nice to see a full run down of the "coaches" and "evaluators" at this event who are earning a little extra spending money for thier summer vacations! You should easily be able to back into rosters from there.
Its all a big sham folks and it will go on long after you're kids have moved on to other things.
Who was the ***** guy in the corner acting like he owned CT hockey?
