i always laugh when TW emails. he's young enough to play yet is behind a bench because hes not good enough. interesting dynamic.
Check out the New England Freezers program... Up and coming spring/summer program. Cheaper then any other program in the area and great coaches as well!!! My son played for them the last two years and Owner helped him to get into a prep-school.
Skills twice per week during the week, keep your weekends open. Pick a tournament or two if your kid gets the itch to play some games, but be selective. They'll be better off in August when the grind starts back up again. $1500-$2000 all in unless you travel to a tournament, keeps the kid on the ice and the parents sane.
How bout summer skills north of Boston , any recomendations?
Right, you guys remind of the two kids fighting over a spot in line at the start of a drill. It doesn't matter what who was first and the coach wants to cut both of you !
