Re: MA Prep

Some schools will be getting info out tomorrow, doesn't look good, cant agree on virus protocols. Again, adults ruining it for kids.

Re: MA Prep

Word is Cushing just basically cancelled boys and girls hockey, keep your kids home playing for whatever team they are on now and do remote learning. How many other schools will be that open about it? MIAA playing games but these schools with complete control over the teams environment can’t figure it out!

Re: MA Prep

Prep school hockey and Basketball players are amongst the largest growing group of teens suffering from depression and thoughts of suicide. These kids have deducted so much of their lives to this sport and were told the prep route was the best choice out there, and now schools are just leaving these kids out to dry. MIAA playing games, every rink filled with games and MA boarding schools can’t figure it out.
Shame on them! Great job by Dexter, Rivers, Bel Hill, and the 1/2 season teams trying to give these kids a good experience at least the schools mentioned care about their players

Re: MA Prep

Those Mass schools you mention are all day schools. What is your solution for Mass boarding schools where they need to protect the 98% of the students that aren't playing hockey? Lakes region schools in NH have a "bubble" but those schools are much smaller and even then most games were cancelled last fall. Rather than complaining, what is your solution?

I'm also getting sick of people praising the half season teams as heros for picking up these prep players. This is not out of the goodness of their heart. This is added revenue they never knew was there. Not saying its bad, just saying its not a charity. These kids (parents) are paying for this (on top of what they already paid for prep, split season, extra winter season, etc.)

Solution, Varsity Winter Sports live in the same dorm, continue online classes and play their sport. They spend most of their time together anyways during the season and on campus they can’t do much as it is now. Keep testing like they already are, control the environment like they already are and let the kids play.
No need to over complicate it.

Re: MA Prep

So the boarding schools that steal all these high school hockey players cant play! This is years of karma. You would think these higher education institutions could figure it out, but I guess not. You think the schools would rent out their rink to MIAA teams? We have so many games booked that we could use a few more sheets for our students to play. The prep school kids are welcome to work the clock.

Careful, your prep school inferiority complex is showing

Sorry, I missed this post, we were playing a hockey game. You are right though.

Re: MA Prep

So now kids are back on campus, locked down most of the day, cant take masks off, and cant play hockey

Sounds appealing right, my kid already called, picking him up Wednesday, its worse than the fall was, the medical crew has made it prison like. Surprised at the amount parents I have spoken to that are pulling their kids with no plans of returning next year.

Re: MA Prep

Same in CT. So my D2 high school jr is playing but Avon Old Farms, Kent, Brunswick and all the snobs can’t play! This is so great! Feel bad for the kids but they are there for education anyways.

Re: MA Prep

My son goes to MA Prep, just had a call with coach and they have 15 games scheduled to start second week of Feb?

Re: MA Prep

So many high school games today in MA. Poor prep kids can only watch them play, did see Deerfield had some outdoor stick time today though, scouts were there

Half the Hs games were cancelled today. Thanks Biden.

Deerfield just spent millions on that new complex and had to make a rink outside to satisfy their medical team. Complete joke. No games, but unlimited outdoor ice as long as the weather works. Gone

Slew of Prep games on for Saturday.

Those "scouts" will now have real hockey to evaluate instead of local HS

Agree with you on that!

Re: MA Prep

So cases are dropping, there is a push for kids to go back to school because there is evidence that it is not spreading in schools, MIAA and FS teams are playing hockey across the state, and yet boarding schools with complete control over their environment wont let the kids play and compete against other schools. These kids are tested twice a week, wear masks all day and night, but cant play hockey. Medical teams ruining kids lives "out of an abundance of caution" call for refunds now!

Re: MA Prep

Any one know if the travel rules (can't play out of state) will expire on 2/1? Would be good for those schools that are playing to expand their options.

More Prep games but, yet again, no fans.

Don't they realize that their man Biden won? Time to ease the restrictions

Re: MA Prep

Loosen restrictions? Just the opposite. Ever see Biden giving a speech somewhere wearing a mask even though he and everyone around him has been vaccinated and are standing outside 20 feet apart? Come on man.

Re: MA Prep

What happened to all of the prep games? Is everyone shut down?
