Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

Nothing but access to form and align newer and better teams all under the same brand.

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

Basically creating a power vacuum of players in the state to form better teams to battle outside of RI. Creating a brand while making a fortune. It is america and hockey has a huge business side.

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

nothing changes except the name on the front of the jersey and a brand new shiny track suit

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

Everyone needs to purchase new gloves,pants,bags,helmets.... That could add up to another $800. When will they have the Jersey reveal party/viewing? Don't forget the club gets a kickback from the fitting/equipment company.

here is the core issue. Teams as they consist now are done. They will move kids around to make "better" teams. So if you played for the Friars and they want that group to be the Black representative (you can only have one) then they will move kids from all three to that team meaning is you were a friar for the last 5 years you may end up playing out of mount because you are now on the silver team with other kids. so now not only is your bender competing for spots but doing so across 3 teams with the hope of landing in the Black division. now some people will be ok with that but the illusion is everyone can stay where they are under a new name. Not going to be the case.

Absolutely is going to be the case.

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

No way...kids are trying out in each location. Kids from MA that have been playing for the WNS are not going to want to go to Cranston 5 times a week. They try something like that and people will leave in droves. Probably the same for Southern RI kids if they do it in reverse and try to send them North. At the Elite level people will drive all over the place, but with so many Tier 1 (or similar) options in the area, why would you if your kid plays at that level?

That is not correct. All teams will be provided FREE Jerseys, socks and bags for next year. That's right FREE. Only Impact would be Woon players would need new helmets and gloves.

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

Not that bad then! Thanks for the for clarifying.

if you mean free by way of the tuition increase then i guess your right. Free for everyone but i need another check for the difference in "tuition"

Re: To all the Providence Jr Friars, my condolences

Nothing is free my friend....nothing!
