New to area from Pennsylvania and came here for work. - Have a 2003 Bantam Minor
Went to Top Gun and Islanders open skate (coaches from each reached out) - also thinking of doing Warriors tryouts soon.
What would be the best organization for development, skills, and competition?
Thanks in advance.
Hope this goes well....
Funny how Top Gun and Islander coaches heard about this guy's kid all the way down in PA. Must be a super star!
Highly doubtful any of these three teams have spots on their elite teams. They are probably looking for tier 1 or select kids.
Simple, respond to the coach ask if your kid can come to a practice. Make a decision based on the coach. You have 1 year left of youth hockey.
The OP is one dedicated and wired dad. This dboard, pertaining to New England youth hockey only, came online last month yet this dad finds it and asks all the right questions about leagues and teams. I salute you sir!
Good work and this is definetly an improved version. Knuckleheads move on!
Thanks for the suggestions from those of you with some logic.
To clarify - no one "heard about" my son in PA. - We came here a few months ago and have been asking questions that's all.
More specifically - heard about this site about 4 days ago from another Dad at the rink (although he gave me the caveats).
I agree w/ poster about the coaches - my initial impression is most of the orgs provide decent comp and comparable skills, so focusing on a good coach seems the best bet.
who did he play for in PA? What level?
