It looks like my family will be moving to southeastern MA next year with my 2010 bender in tow. He's a solid tier 1 player, maybe elite if both he improves this year and the team he plays for is desperate for players. The clubs within a reasonable distance seem to be the Boston Bandits, South Shore Kings, Bay State Breakers, Boston Terriers, and New England Knights. I've found some information about the Bandits, Terriers, and Breakers online, but I can't find much about the Kings or Knights regarding tuition and how many practices/skills they get. Also, if there are any teams that I should be wary of, I'd appreciate a heads up. Thanks in advance.
If your kid is a bender then all those teams would be appropriate.
In that order
By the way, we know you are trolling
Not trolling. If I were, I'd have declared that my kid is the most elite elite in Elitesville like some of the people on here. I'm simply trying to find a team that is a step above town, but where my kid would realistically stand a chance at playing.
If sincere about developing a bender go the Lovell route
Thanks for some real advice. Like I said, my kid is decent but not anything special on the ice. He's on an AA/tier II team this year. I'll look into the Lovell team for next year.
Pretty sure anyone who reads three posts on here knows about the "elite" theme here.
2010 birth year if you can handle the drive go to the Caps. Organization as a whole is not good but the 2010 teams are very good and have great coaches and just brought in a Former local NHL/AHL player to run development.
Many thanks for the helpful advice. We'll be in Marion, so that's only about 45 minutes. I'll add PHC to the list.
Other benefit of Caps would be the parents fighting in the stands...a 40yr old punching a 75yr old in the face screams class!
The "moving into the area" troll is nothing new.
If you're moving in from MN, MI, WI then I'd go Lovell. If you're moving in from OK, AR, LA then I'd go with those other organizations.
Thanks, we're from PA. I guess that means somewhere in the middle of the list.
PA near Pittsburgh or Philly and I'd say move to B.A. / Lovell. Otherwise the others.
If you have an ego and what your kid flatlining at Bantam minor then go play EHF. If you want to develop your player head to Lovell
KINGS OR TERRIERS. YOUR LITTLE BENDER CAN START ON THE ELITE FIRST LINE.
