Son plays on a non-elite U16 team in the FED. Been with them for two years and while not a terrible experience it seems a little stagnant. Has friends who play for similar teams in the PHL and made a mention of possibly switching next year. He'll be going into U18 and I'm wondering if there is much difference in quality of play, etc. between the PHL and FED at the mid-level? He's a solid high school player but not college or prep bound.
Play with your friends.
PHL is weak-
Midget Select Fed is decent at U-18
Good luck in the Fed's half season league playoffs at U16 & U18 levels - should be fun, competitive, and a nice way to wrap up the end of the half season.
