Boys Hockey: With a shortage of players for next season, the program at New Bedford High could be in jeopardy
New Bedford is in a tough spot, just like all of the big public in that area,
First off the school system is such a mess that none of the kids go there solely for sports anymore, However New Bedford has to have the biggest decline ever in the history of high school hockey.
This team was a multiple time Top 20 team in the state several years ago, playing in states, sending numerous players to college, juniors, preps and pro. The drop off is amazing.
My kid is in 7th grade. He will play varsity next year in private school.
Very familiar with the prep school circut. 8th grade is still middle or lower school. Can't think of any prep day schools with hockey for 8th grade. Unless your kid is a 16 year old freshman (I've seen it happen)?
