Understanding the process one has to follow in order to give your kid a shot to get on a good team in a hockey-rich area like Mass - when would you say is "too early" and/or "too late" to begin the outreach process (to coaches/clubs)?
It's likely that most coaches wouldn't arrange for a team skate this early in the season, but I would be wary of waiting too long as well.
Our team has new kids skating already. Crazy
Bandits have open spots.
Send emails to the coaches in ehf....prob tier 1 and see what they say
Do you think tier 1 and E9 are about the same in terms of competition? Bottom e9 vs say higher end tier 1?
At 04 level, all E9 teams would beat EHF Tier 1.
" I know a bunch of Tier 1 kids who cant make their town A team "
We've all seen it. Townies get all worked up over the kid who has played elsewhere, select kid's dad isn't on the B.O.D., kid's dad isn't a Beer League Hero with the Townie 'coaches,' there is animosity toward the kid because he's good enough for the very prestigious 'A Team' but to spite the kid they all laugh and place him on the B team where some of the kids should be skating with chairs and then when the kid packs up his bag and moves onto a good select team never to come back the locals all bad mouth the kid and the kid's family. . .
Been there, done that.
please provide info and I will call you.
Give Advantage ice a call. Looking to dump some dead weight on D. Expect to be E9 for next season. Also you can't beat Lovell skills !!!!
