The real problem in youth hockey is the associations that are pulling kids from 80 miles to win games and tournaments.. in New England it starts at mites.
keep it local folks
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
Some men you just can't reach.
So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it.
Well, he gets it.
I don't like it any more than you men.
There is no rule in USA Hockey or Mass Hockey that female club players can't play on local girls teams or local co-ed teams. If a town is fine with players only being available for certain games or tournaments then so be it. The only rule that exists on the dual rostering of players is that a player may only be rostered on one National Bound team.
According to the Natick website, there is only 1 Girls 12 & Under team. where is a girl who plays club but also wants to play town with her friends supposed to play. Her options are that 12 and under team or on one of 4 Pee Wee co-ed teams.
What Natick did is perfectly kosher.
This wouldn't happen with boys. Those players would immediately be pulled off the bench. Seen it happen. Heard the organizers of this USA hockey sanctioned event aren't pleased with with this blatant violation. Keep your Tier 1 Assabet and let Natick try w their own talent. Defending this behavior is sad.
Martha I'm not sure you understand... if you have any information that those two girls are not from Natick speak up and share w. us. other wise shut your ignorant mouth.
Wolfie- already done in the appropriate manner. Naming those specific girls on this board would be irresponsible. I actually care about kids and their hockey experience.
we have been winning at a 87% clip since joining this discussion board... lots of hockey left this season and i have learned so much.
thank you all so much
Ya I have nothing to do w. Natick hockey...I live a few hrs away from Natick
What do think you have to teach me. I'm all ears
You are all racist!
