Spartans organization has an automatic E9 bid, but has opted out at the 2004 level the last two years. Last year they were placed in the BHL National Division after parity. This will be a major step down from an EHF Elite 05 team, IMO.
I would ask them what their intentions are for next year, and if they intend to play E9 I would attempt to verify that they've made adequate improvements to be able to compete in that division.
What 05 team is your son on?
Didn't Seacoast 04 win the BHL last year? And I know they made some upvrades next year so I would expect them to take the automatic bid next year...
Excellent information. Thank you to all.
