Special thanks to the organizers for the 28 dollar gate fee and zero video quality with HockeyTV…
Son is 18 and this is the first year he didn't give in to play. A coach he hasn't spoken to since school got out in May called him this morning to tell him it is a complete waste of time, players are completely unprepared and lazy, invited him to campus next week to visit and talk about next steps. All this from the beach!! It only took us 10 years to get over FOMO!! If this helps 1 other sad soul like mine then it is a win. #giveback
The most amazing that I am completely in shock of.
Is how many kids can’t skate. The number of kids who are poor skaters is astonishing.
Some of the top 03 and 04 players in the northeast are showcasing their talent. Impressed with the stacked teams
Are the rinks crawling with scouts? Who have you seen?
Yup! My son made it through camp, got offered a spot and put the gear away until second week of August. Not worth it.
Sorry offended freshman dad, apologize it was too rough for little Johnny. Maybe next year when he puts on big boy pants and decides to just play hockey. Jesus you couldn’t sound like more of a ***** if you tried.
What do you think junior leagues consist of?? Here is a hint it’s 16-20 year olds. There are plenty of 16-17 year olds that play against 20 year olds every single season. You either adapt or you are done at 18, it’s that simple. The golf comment is ridiculous and proves you have zero idea what you are talking about. Like every tournament there are good teams and players as well as bad. My son is playing in Jr A division and one game was really good and other was not as competitive. We did catch the second half of an Elite division game yesterday morning and it was littered with many college coaches and commits there. There was obviously a difference in level of play between that game and a Jr A game, but both divisions have some really good players. So your argument that the good players are on the golf course holds zero weight. It’s literally one game maybe two per day… plenty of time for golf.
Skip the hardo responses, but honestly I want to know if the players with half shields pay their own dental insurance, or if their parents are ok exposing their teeth just a few years after they spent $5k on braces.
Yeah. Players getting hammered at Lil Baby tonight, morning games are gonna stink.
Why are rosters so thin? Kids didn’t stick around for playoffs? Sons team has 9 players this morning. I want a refund!
Say what you want, lots of scholarships being thrown around in the hallways.
Heard a few decent d3 local programs. Mediocre schools but the ride continues.
No, I am not ok paying for those dental bills but I'm also not going to tell my kid to throw on a cage again until he goes back to school.
I'm confused. If a helmet has a cage that remains closed what is the problem?
that's funny...but not the case. keep worrying about juniors teeth though.
As someone who actually played and is not just living through their kid as a hardo, let me tell you the only thing worse than losing your teeth is paying for losing your teeth, especially after you finally took off and paid thousands for your braces. Just one implant was over $4000.
That was the original question, why risk the damage and money for just one tier3 gap season? Its not like your a draft pick in the CHL. Just wear what you'll wear in college.
My kid is 8 but I can't say I've thought too much about teeth...it's crossed my mind but he wears a cage...
I know the pros my son skates with (Not at Chowder Cup this weekend) dont care much to play pick-up with full cage kids. I know I certainly didnt play with guys wearing a full cage after school either...and still wont. I guess they feel they may take a stick to the face themselves from a kid who doesnt get it...like the bender mentioned above likes to do.
Your boy is going to get his butt kicked.
If your kid is 6'4 and wearing a cage he's a *****. FACT...and you already know this...its the reason he's a "magician" with his stick. #knowyourkidisa*****
And you expected anything different? Stop falling for the cash grab bull crap tournaments.
