I saw this Caps team play this weekend and sorry but I was impressed. Last year's team was terrible. This team is big and super fast. They absolutely manhandled the Woonsocket Stars. My kids team didn't make the black but it's too bad this team couldn't get in. I think that when the Eagles coach saw the hurting they put on the Stars he got a few additional elites to play on Sunday! In addition to the elites that played all weekend!
CLCF could beat most EHF Tier 1 teams, and probably several elite teams
Yeah same 2 kids to go against the caps same 2 kids. Two goals taken away and one given. No penalty's called against caps. Too bad caps didn't understand there's 4 games not one. Northstars smoked the teams caps lost too. Northstars in playoffs next season.IN BLACK!
SNEHC...EHF Silver.... WTF is that? Is this real life? Has to be floor ball or floor hockey right?
My god people, get a grip. If your child is playing at a level where this league is one of the only options.... buy a basketball.
In all seriousness follow my plan. Stay in your town hockey program next season. This spring do a skills session once a week. This summer search for a good camp, a skating camp like PV or Laura Stamm, take the $3-4k you would pay for the Rhode Island Rascals or whoever you would throw that money at and spend it on skating!!!!
Maybe some off ice training as well. Not specific to hockey. Maybe a strength and conditioning session once a week to work on quickness and strength that will translate to ALL sports.
Take the balance $ and find a skating coach next fall and winter to supplement your town hockey. Go once a week to a private instructor. Do the research they are out there.
Next year reassess.
Warwick Wave are one of the better town leagues around....A level teams at 05/06 and 03/04 age groups could challenge many BHL/EHF Tier 1 teams. They play 16 games in the EJEPL.
I'll have whatever he is smoking.
