Re: 06 Level moves.....

Why would players be leaving BA? Aren't they in first place?


Some of the parents thought their little Johnny would be a stud over there but that didn't work out so it's let me go and next man up.

Myabe that's WHY families would leave. Youth hockey is about development, not winning and losing. If a given coach on any team is overly concerned about winning in 10 year old hockey, at the expense of reasonably equal playing time and attention in practice, the parents SHOULD leave.

Ah makes sense. Yes coaches should be rolling the lines and developing all players equally in both games and practices. If that's not the case you need to move on.

Can we change the title and subject of this post to 06 Level Moms? :-)

Re: 06 Level moves.....

Wouldn't make sense to say that BA is in first because kids are being developed correctly! Haven't attended all the games, but, for most part, all kids are getting equitable playing time ! A lot more equitable than teams that aren't in first!

That wasn't the question. The question was, why would someone leave a first place team? No idea if this particular BA rolls their lines or not. Was just offering a reason why someone would make that decision.

The reason is to play in a higher/better league. To play with / against teams that have more depth. I've watched quite a few E9 and EHF games at the 06 level. The speed of the game is faster at the EHF level. The teams are a little more deep. This is not meant to knock the E9, but the teams at the 06 level in the EHF have a little more depth. Maybe it's different at other age groups but at the 06 level there seems to be a difference.
