Re: E9 Parity Tournament

They still have multiple summer camps including the 8 week and several other options. Sure they probably are not filling up, but remember that they do limited advertising.

The "team camp" is a great idea for getting the team together for an extended period of time prior to parity that they have been doing for a few years.

It's ok, I guess its not for everyone. You can wait until September to find out who is on your roster and if your coach is still coaching !

clearly, you do not think that a team camp is a bad idea ?? and have some issue with Lovell Hockey ?

You will not know your game schedule for the season until last week in Septemeber.


I would assume that most everyone here is anticipating playing hockey Saturday and Sunday during the season ? Can't imagine anyone being suprised by a schedule in September !

wait, why do the e9 parents all bash the ehf for having their parity so early. Really, how many practices have you gotten in as a team to have a parity in August.


They will at least have more chance to get practices in with new players before the tournament than EHF does when they have their tournament a week after tryouts. And the E9 tournament isn't really a tournament. It takes place over the course of September. The EHF "parity" tournament is just a way for the founding member organizations to sell more ice time.

Re: E9 Parity Tournament

The EHF parity sets the season schedule black vs white. Huge importance.

Bottom of that White may as well be Town Cs.

Not a fan of the EHF way getting it in the week after tryouts. No time to gel at all with new players/lines. Given the impact of the competition level you'll play for the next calendar season there should be a month to practice and get a better grip on your team makeup.

EHF is too quick with parity.

E9 is too late.

Re: E9 Parity Tournament

Parity doesn't matter for either league. Those kids (BHL and Tier white/black) are the dregs of the leagues, so who cares. Elite is where its at! Be great to see a season ending tournament between the top 4 teams each from Elite EHF vs. Elite E9. 8 teams, round robin style over a 3 game set, then playoffs between the 4 teams with the best records with and a final between the best two teams.

Re: E9 Parity Tournament

Get over the "elite" nonsense. Big marketing tool that a lot of people fall for. E9 and EHF will never play in a tournament against each other

Re: E9 Parity Tournament

Playing a summer league team right now with a mix of EHF Elite and Tier 1, E9, and BHL.

You'd be hard pressed as a neutral observer to pencil who plays for what.

Enjoy that Elite tag at 8-9-10.

Surely nothing changes.
