getting back to the OP,
Are the Breakers really that bad? Are they the dregs of the league or do they actually compete against better teams?
Reason I ask is my son is probably going to try out for select at the end of the coming season and they were one of the teams I was thinking of.
Ask around, 07,06,05,are in tough shape. Good luck. Remember you pay for coaching, not the elite tag.
It's pretty funny because their midget teams are always one of the best teams around. And I think they had another recent competitive team.
coaching at the squirt/mite level is in tough shape, hence the high turnover
IMO the Jr Terriers are a better choice in that geography. New head of player development, really good guy.
some parents chase the elite dream so they don't care who is coaching
Until they make some big changes at the the breakers teams will continue declining. The crazy mother story kicking the door in is the best
That is the stupidest story ever. It's not like the mom who went out onto the ice to yell at the ref...not even close.
she kicked the door in and started yelling at the kids on the other team. It was pretty bad and hilarious. Especially if you know the family
No it's just the one guy here that is obsessed with this story and the story isn't even interesting or shocking. Some mom gets mad and went and banged on the locker room door of the visiting team or something like that.
Remember the old newspaper adage - "Dog bites man; not news. Man bites dog; news" An angry hockey mom is 'dog bites man'...not 'news.'
I find it pretty funny myself
At one point or another good players will play in various leagues for various programs various coaches, high schools...at the end no one really cares. Even some of the local stars (Eichel, Donato, Hannifin...) that have moved on have numerous teams they played for like private teams, tournament teams, EHF teams, BA teams, National team, Junior teams prep teams, high school teams so to hang it all on the EHF is really silly unless your kid is < 12 then you have no idea what you are in for but you will quickly learn.
EHF is a good place to play but it's not the only place.
