They had to merge with 2 other programs to get the amount of kids to fill teams at all levels. It looks like they plan on having kids at all levels but I wouldn't count on any of them making the E9
All teams except the 05's will be at least as good as last year.
Tryout numbers about the same as previous years down here. A little higher at some age groups.
3 organizations did not "come together". The only age group that joined together was mites. And the Bandits? Not sure how many Bandits are now part of the program but in no way can it be called a merger. Seems like 90% of the organization is existing Hurricanes. Most of them stayed. Each team picked up a few kids, as is the case everywhere.
Can you guys share more about this Hurricanes/Bandits thing? I hadn't heard about that development. Thanks
