Are the Giants still planning to field elite and select teams at each level? Based on what you're saying, it seems many of the "elite" teams are going to end up in the National division? What happens to the select teams? BHL allow the Giants to have 2 teams in the same division?
My BHL experience says no, they won't allow two teams in the same division except in E9. Last year, '03 level BB Elites I think went 0-8 in parity, BB select I think went 1-7. Elite team played BHL National and select played independant. If memory serves the same thing happened a few years back with Assabet '03's, elite played national and select played VHL. So that's been my experience but like anything else in youth hockey, subject to change based upon team ownership, relationships, and evolving rules.
Any new info on Giants having more then one team per age group, moving to area my son needs a spot heard this would be easy to make.. 04 BY
Not an elite team but on Tier 1 Black team yes they could.
I heard they had close to 40 kids at the 2005 tryouts. Not sure about quality,,,but still had numbers. Also heard that the 06 and 07s had numbers too. Again not sure about quality. Pretty sure new coaches coming in at some of the lower levels...maybe they're bringing kids. Anyway, new program so bumps are expected.
No u14. They're going to be terrible if they do field a team. they took the already not very good U14 team and move them to the U 15 team as no numbers there either. My son is a 2003 and it was not going to be an option for him. Joke of a program
Careful here folks. Saying U14/15/16/18 levels from other countries, states and all super elite teams. What's really happening is he is filling gaps where he can with Tier 2 players at best, HS rejects and 1/2 season kids. Do your homework with before falling for the Lovell and company sell job.
