Re: Springfield Pics

Anonn
^^ #6 can be #4 and #9 can be #7..wtf are you talking about. YOU PLAY FOR THE PICS! Just stop.
You sound jealous of a kid or you are a kid
Bingo! The only people who come on the High School Forum and attempt to disparage a kid
1. Is insecure about his/her own kid
2. Is jealous of the kids or kids family success
3. Is just unhappy with their life decisions
It’s not a good way to live, you need to find god

Just lost another U16 to the Skipjacks
Skipjacks is a hockey academy, more of the Pics players should look into it.

There is peaceful easy feeling at the Olympia for the Pics Organization all of a sudden

Are you saying because every team got killed yesterday they must not have any potential prospects in the organization for D3, never mind D1? Is that what your saying? Because if that’s what your saying, I totally agree. Stay thirsty my friends.

Re: Springfield Pics

I don’t know, my son played his 2 U16 years there, team was a little under .500 and he moved on with no issues now playing college hockey.

Re: Springfield Pics

We played the U16 last night and beat them 7-0. Goaltending is bad, defense is bad, they do have 1 or 2 really good forwards who can fly and are physical, the rest are JV public HS talent.

Re: Springfield Pics

Don’t judge a team in September, judge them in Feb/March.
BTW: 2-2 on the weekend for 16s

Re: Springfield Pics

The U16 Pics got kicked out of the Top Division this year! So those of you who decided to stay are playing more terrible hockey then the top division already had to offer. Should get exposure playing everyone's second teams full of 04's, or a highly scouted thriller against the Bandits :joy:

Re: Springfield Pics

You lost to the Chiefs! Let that sink in

shhhhhhhh..move on now

Re: Springfield Pics

I bang in this org because of our experience there, but kudos to the U16 kids for being 9 and 3, I guess they do have some decent players.

Re: Springfield Pics

Rankings:
U15- 105 (Last)
U16-82
U18-88

Bad. This is why local colleges have no interest, even if there are a few good ones in there, they will never get a look.

Re: Springfield Pics

U16 Not invited to Jersey this weekend..or anywhere!

Re: Springfield Pics

Rumors are a few of their top players leaving after not being told of division changes :sweat_smile: Did they think parents wouldn't find out?

Re: Springfield Pics

Read your contract, says nothing about Divisions. You can leave, but don't expect any money back.

Re: Springfield Pics

So bad that coaches aren’t showing up anymore

Re: Springfield Pics

Can you just stop? The Pics is a Tier 2 organization with a few good U16/U18/Premier players that carry the teams. Those players will leave next year and their will be a few good players that come in to take their place. No more conversation needed. As for the local colleges, the few good players mentioned above have definitely had conversations with those coaches, but when was the last time a Pics player went to a D1 school. D3 is their sweet spot.

Re: Springfield Pics

Again I ask, what tournament did the 16's get invited to? Jersey? No. NH? No. One of the biggest tournament weekends of hockey and I see NO Games scheduled anywhere for this team. Parents should wake up and realize you have been had. Nobody wants your team to be part of anything.

Re: Springfield Pics

New to the program this year and my son is very happy with it. Good coaches and teammates, good practices, close games.

The U16s just added a 5th flow drill for practice. Development:stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Re: Springfield Pics

The Elite team has 36 kids on their roster, thats 1 shift per game per kid. Well worth the dream

Re: Springfield Pics

Well you can only dress 20 a game so that’s back to 5-6 a period depending on special team play.

Re: Springfield Pics

I hear the 16's have a big game against Central CT Youth Hockey this weekend. Great competition. SH and AP must be impressed with this years team and exposure.

Re: Springfield Pics

Just heard they will not be fielding a U18 team again next year. Elite and Premier only. Kiss the program goodbye.
I also hear 16s only have 1 coach on the bench at all games now, not good. If you are a U16 on that team, start looking at Prep, get ready to go back to your public high school next year or you better be ready to leave home for a good U18 program.

3-4 U16 going Prep next year, the rest will be cut or go back to homeland. Elite is not the place to develop.

Re: Springfield Pics

Good Luck to them at states..........oh wait

Re: Springfield Pics

Read entire thread and the OP has a good point. I would assume WNEU/ Westfield isn’t all that good so I’m surprised they are not recruiting PIcs kids. Amherst, Wesleyan have grade requirements so maybe that is an issue? AIC is a D1 program, they are not taking USPHL kids. Loosing the 18 program definitely hurts the program and area kids looking to advance through the process, USPHL Elite Division is not good but it’s nice to see some kids have success there but what are they going to do next year? I am surprised to hear about the U16 team being in the lower division, they have some good kids from that area who I assume will move on next year without the U18 option. I disagree with the shots taken at the coaching, those brothers relate to the kids and have always gotten the best out of their best players. I hope it all works out as I remember watching my nephew play against Dinnen/Flaggs Pics teams of years ago, they were some scary talented rough players.

Re: Springfield Pics

There is a Lovell program that has same problem...
