Just hearing about Lovell’s new Winter Club. Is this a tie-in to the hockey academy they’re building or just another program under their umbrella? I know they take some shots around here, but they’re good at teaching skills, and making money while doing it.
When is new rink planned for completion? Will teams be playing there next year?
So is the E9 now officially the E10?
They have upcoming construction on their primary and summer houses so time for more money!
Complete joke and continued watering down of their once solid brand.
Sadder is how bad the Breakers, Bandits, Terriers are in the area that allows for their continued expansion.
It’s a shame Mass Hockey won’t step in and fix this joke of a hockey region we live in.
TL and JL. You are successful. You are definitely that. You are no longer unique, special, or quality. You went from the beat local burger joint with great fresh meat and quality service to McDonalds.
Just a reminder that 99% of people are basic w****s.
Sounds like bitter breakers, bandits, kings people that have seen entire programs crumble to advantage
Can’t wait for another year. Maybe one more program.
Then the Lovell’s can basically start a house league of their own teams which will be better hockey than most other leagues.
They do run a great program and I like their skills. Even thinking of moving my kid to Advantage from current EHF team due to proximity and program re****tion but still can't get past the fact that the bottom half of E9 isn't very competitive hockey. The thought of driving to Springfield for a 10-1 game isn't very appealing.
Forget the competition during the season, it means nothing.
What's paramount are the skills, playing opportunities and ice time they offer 12 months out of the year. Fact is, development is happening out of that Org inspite of the inferior competition.
Dont go by my word alone, some of the most skilled U13/14/15/16 players in NE are a product of this Org and they didnt develop playing in 10 to 1 games.
Good points - we will be skating with them over the next few weeks so will see first hand.
"Any advantage player who has ever made it has moved on from their “skills” before their 14th bday."
The above statement is a bit misleading in the sense that many accomplished players leave their youth teams in their early teens. The facts still point to a number of success stories out of that Org, who are given a solid foundation to development, inspite of the "competition" they faced during their youth years.
Wait, Lovell is adding ANOTHER program on the South S**** and plans to play elite? Where are all of these kids coming from? I know the Hingham bank accounts can absorb another team, but is there really enough talent around to start another program there?
Yeah it’s called Terriers and Breakers
RIP to those programs
Dumb comment. Advantage kids leave for Terriers and Breakers. Not the other way around.
This is will just be a watered down “Hingham Lovells” team.
