In the few years we were there, it was apparent it was time to go. While they provided ice time equivalent to other programs, it was apparent they did not listen to the feedback given by parents in end of year evals on coaching. Unfortunately, every year the team got weaker and weaker because a couple would leave here and there. Certain levels have more issues than others but unless they can get a strong coach in that brings a core of his previous team over, the addition of only 1-2 new players for the stronger players that leave still leaves a weakened team. I can't see how they can come back when every team from the 07s to 03s are loosing. Had they listened years ago, who knows. Unfortunately, I know at least one coach who lied, probably made it sound like the Parents were the problem, and he's a good liar, but that is only one division. Can't explain the others
I love the morons on this site who think they know everything about everyone else's organization. There has been big changes made with the leadership of the organization. TS has left and did absolutely nothing for the youth hockey part of the organization. They brought in Doug Shepherd from PEI Canada to run the whole organization and has total control. For people who do not know Doug he has a vast hockey background. Was the skating coach for the Winnipeg Jets and has instructed some of the biggest stars in the game Crosby Trouba etc. Check out his bio on the Bandits web site.
There are many quality coach's in the Bandits organization. from NHL and college div 1 players. My son has improved tremendously under many of these coach's tutelage. I couldn't be happier with my sons team and the direction the organization is heading. We have a great group of kids and coach's.
I do agree that the 06 & 05 teams are a total loss. Thanks to TS and that troll WN. They ran those teams into the ground.
I know its popular on this on this board to trash the Bandits. So next time you want to open your sewer know what the F!@*# your talking about and do your research. I would put my sons coach's against anyone else's in the EHF.
They need to be sold. BE only cares about money
