What is it with this program? Once the premiere program in the EHF and now it's made up of mostly bottom dwellers. Every year they hold tryouts but make FEW changes and the teams continue to decline, crazy parents yelling from the stands, players quitting mid-season, nut job coaches on the bench. Teams are picked and assembled by who knows who, not by skill or coach ability. It's a shame bc it's a nice facility and location. 05, 06 and 07 teams all overdue for coaching changes which will happen before end of year. WTF is going on? Can this program be saved?
Owner needs to wake up and put a stop to this nonsense asap.
Logistically the program is in a great spot, to bad it's not what it use to be. Look at the results over the last 5-10 years, the trends don't lie.
It's been great for my kid so far. If it stops working for us I certainly will not bash the program where my kids friends are still playing.
My kid plays for another team in the 05 EHF. I would have no problem having him play for the 05 coach. I think he's a pretty good coach and that team has been very competitive. Problem is they struggle to score like others. As the years go by, it gets more difficult to get impact players. Claude Julian could coach that team and I do not think the record would be that much different. In regards to the other teams, I'm not sure what is going on. At one time it was the premiere program, I'm not sure why that changed over the past 5-10 years.
Awful program that just sent teams to the Q three years running 02',03' and this year 04's lowest ranked team is the 06 team at #28. Organization stands behind its teams, facility is great and plenty of ice time. Go get your shine box and get to work, you have know idea what your talking about!
Here are some stats @ MHR
05: for every game you win, you lose 2
06: for every game you win, you lose 2.5
07: for every game you win, you lose 2
So again back to the OPs question - what is going on? SSK used to be a premiere program. The rankings on MHR mean ZERO so please don't respond with a foolish statement again. This isn't some college poll service published in USA Today. Some clown runs the MHR website out of his moms basement.
For those of you that don't know, these 3 birth years are on life support in Foxboro.
If this trend continues the Kings will be gone in a few years due to Giants new facility 12 minutes away.
u14 going to nationals, 04 going to q, but yeah the kingdom has fallen sorry your kid didn't make the team
