Re: Someone please explain u14 to me!

Some teams are 1/2 season some are full. Some kids on 1/2 teams need full season and some on full go 1/2. The ones who are on 1/2 teams join a full team at thanksgiving- got that. But then they return to their original team for states in February? If let’s say my kid is on a full season team but plenty of the kids are leaving at 1/2 for hs teams, could he leave and go to a different club team or is that an absolute no?
if they make V for HS then there is no time for youth hockey. But don't know until after the first week after thanksgiving.

Re: Someone please explain u14 to me!

It all depends on if the FS players make their HS team. If so, MIAA rules (and I think NH too) say you have to prioritize your HS team over club. So, lots of U14 teams fall apart after Thanksgiving. There is always FS teams looking to add players. They just can't join two 'national bound' teams.

Also, when should the process of finding a team start if you have a U14 that will need a full season team as a result of still being in 8th grade?!
