At U16/ U18 you are right. If your kid is at any of the listed options, he is done. I would rethink dropping that 7K-10K tuition any of those Orgs..He will not move on from there to anywhere worth while. Sorry to say, but if you don't go Jr Bruins or Prep, its over. Jr Bruins will at least give him a glimmer of hope.
After U16/U18 he's going to have to play junior anyway. He'll make his contacts then. It's just the way it is. You don't need to decide where he's going to play in college until he's 19 or 20 anyway.
Anyone that tells you differently isn't being realistic. Sure, if your kid is truly elite, there may be a D-I spot at 18, but then again, he's likely an NHL draft pick, too.
Have him play where he will develop the most. And have him hit the books. That way he has more choices on the other side of HS.
Chiefs moving 3-4 U16 on to Prep..,Pics 0.
Everyone knows that the best 14, -18 year olds are playing at the Olympia. Fact. I include the best from Worcester area.
I love it when people play dumb. The top 02 in New England is out there
Springfield Pics have signed anyone with a check and a pair of skates along with 25 Europeans who can’t communicate with coaches or teammates!
^^^Big Announcement coming about U16 next year from Pics..team folding with a few going U18:grin:
U16 lost 2 returning players to Kings and possibly a few more over the next 2 weeks. #coachingmatters
U16 coach is a lunatic
Why would a kid from western mass play for the Kings?
because prep school didn't work out
