Walpole Express website says the following
Walpole, MA - The Walpole Express are excited to announce their acceptance into the Elite 9 (E9) / Boston Hockey League (BHL) for the 2017-2018 season. The E9 / BHL provides high level hockey for the top youth organizations in the area, and are considered one of the best leagues in New England. The Walpole Express will be hosting 2003-2009 Elite level teams.
2cd tier (Elite) stays in BHL for the Express and 3rd Tier (Select) going to the Valley League. Can you imagine spending $3,500 to play in the VHL!
Would you buy a used car from this man?
What great people at Boch. Announcing it now at the end of the season a week before the kids tryout so they don't have time to try and hook on with other teams. Real good people. Love how they sent out an email telling everyone how they changed and wanted people to come back to the program. Inferior league. Inferior teams. Same crap as always at Boch.
Coaches were not in loop. First they heard of the change was when they got the email.
Hate to break this news to you bender's dad, but if your kid is playing at Boch he has no other real options out there.
Same can be said for Walpole Express
Is the Boch part even true? No sign of Boch PHL website.
The Premier Hockey League of New England (PHLNE)
Adds Five New Programs
New teams to begin league play for 2017-2018 season
Boston, Mass. – The Premier Hockey League of New England (PHL) announced today that it has officially added five new programs. The Mass Bay Chiefs, North Suburban Wings, Greater Boston Vipers, Worcester Junior Crusaders, and Boch Blazers will commence league play for the 2017-2018 season. Since being founded in 2004, the PHL has experienced tremendous growth while representing some of the top Midget and Youth Hockey programs from the region. The PHL is now comprised of more than 200 teams from 32 different hockey organizations solidifying itself as one of the largest youth hockey leagues in New England.
Please just stop with adding teams to the Boston area, especially to this league. Not helping with development.
