Re: Msc

True, many people THINK they have Mount as an option.

Re: Msc

Yes they considered him and spoke to us. Now we are considering them for U14 for next year. People have told us that many players don’t stay a 2nd year with large turn over. So my question is once again, where do the players go when they leave? If you have no clue, please don’t respond.

Re: Msc

Local hs.

Re: Msc

Was wondering if they transferred over to the msc school for at least a year or went to private late admit. Kind of a risk. Hard to bet for or against your kid.

Re: Msc

Lots of development to be had, some peak early some late, rosters like these are always evolving.

People need to realize that for high level midgets and beyond the word "development" means fighting tooth and nail to maintain your roster spot and hopefully move up in a challenging environment. It does not mean they will be putting in extra ice time to work with the third liners.

Over the past couple years, kids who left MSC after U14 ended up at:

-South Kent
-BK Selects
-Salisbury
-New Hampton
-Chicago Mission
-LI Gulls

So other academy/AAA programs or NE Preps.

Some players left looking for more opportunity.
Some were asked to leave/not offered a spot.
Some just didn't feel like the program was a fit.
Some wanted a better school experience.

MSC does have a rep of catering to their top players.
And they are also pretty upfront about how cutthroat they can be: develop and perform or they'll move on.

Kinda harsh when you're dealing with 14/15 year-old kids, but that's what you're signing up for.

You end up at south Kent, Boston hockey academy or SPA. If your not on first line or 1st D pairing they are looking to replace you.

Last year team was top 10 all year they cut 10 and 2 moved on from there own decision.

Re: Msc

No MSC kids moving to SPA or BHA, that's guaranteed. Definitely some turnover, but not in that direction.

Did they really cut 10. That is a lot. Replacing that amount with better talent is a lot.

Re: Msc

Lol.

If you are a decent player and can pay full freight there is always room on the 4th line and an occasional shift when the game is not on the line.

For as long as you’re happy to have your bender riding the bench so you can say you’re on MSC.

That’s how they can afford to let the first line come in for free.

Re: Msc

If your son is not on the top two lines don’t bother. It’s an incredible program for the top players but if you are on a lower line you won’t get much ice time and run the risk of not being asked back. The coaches tell it like it is. Watch some games and see how they roll lines/coach. If it doesn’t work out out you transfer into the high school team or play for your town high school. If your son is good enough it’s definitely worth it. It’s great hockey and a cool experience.

Re: Msc

Idk. Seems like it will be a whole thing if he gets cut in a year to figure out another option. At this exact moment, I would rather just keep him at home at a local prep and club team. Want him to feel good about himself/hockey. Not willing to risk it. Ultimately it’s going to be up to the kid

You can only send your kid too early.
U14 is very young to move away from home.
MSC isn't going anywhere.
Could look to join them at U15, U16, U18.
Because, as mentioned, they're always going to be looking for players.

Mount plays a terrible schedule with a few good games sprinkled on top. Mount usually loses to the good teams. Outside of u18 last year the three teams struggled to beat local club teams. The academics are below Woonsocket Public.

Academics are terrible. MSC was going to close because of academics until a couple of NHL alums saved the school and made it a hockey school. If you go there you better know your kid is going to play professionally because he will not make it as a doctor, attorney or banker. Get those work boots on

It’s an excellent program. U-18 team waxed SSM 7-2 at the National tournament en route to winning it all. No school east of Shattuk is anywhere near mount. All four teams in the top 10 in the country every year. 10 players either playing in or committed Ivy. Crawl back in the hole you came from

Exactly , 10 went Ivy,congrats,and the others went and put there work boots on the same as the rest of us. And for the record,I highly doubt 10 went Ivy from one single team.

10 is a big number.

Re: Msc

From the start of age 8 every program deals with kids coming and going whether they are cut, want more playing time, bad fit, grass is greener, ....etc. Mount and these other schools/programs are no different. There is constant change and turnover for whatever the individuals reasons are. These kids at some point need to learn to fight for their playing time because that is the nature of this sport. If you don't think your kid will be mature enough to live away then don't send him. But if you do think they are mature enough it is a great experience and they will for sure get better. It's hard not to when you play against the best every day in practice and in games even if your kid is a 4th liner.
