Parity allows teams a chance to play into the E9. Typically only 2 teams get a chance to move up. Most of these teams struggle during the year but some do well. Some people keep posting in general about performance vs EHF/Plat. Every age group is different. For example the 2010 and even the 2008 are week. I'm just not impressed with an age group that can't compete with teams/players a year older. This has been my opinion for the last 3 years. Of course some teams can, but the majority can't. Most of you clowns can't see this because you still think you're kid is going pro. The truth is only a handful of kids are truly elite. The sad reality is you morons bragging about youth hockey. You never played. But please continue with the expert advice. My favorite is the mite and squirt dads. HAAAAAAAA
who is saying teams can't compete with teams a year up from them?
More parity games are absolutely necessary and I would recommend a month long parity tournament in June or July. Need to reinforce a win at all cost mentality before these kids hit puberty! Remember if you ain't cheating...you just ain't trying.
What were these last 2 weeks about? Did we make it into the E9? What were we playing for? To get into E9 Prep division? Did our kid’s baseball and lacrosse teams lose because we weren’t there? Will 14 14U teams be in the E9? What will the E9 look like after split season? Did we just play 6-7 games in the Spring to figure out how 10 games will be played next Fall? Did we figure out anything? What were the scores of our kid’s baseball and lacrosse games? Is my lawn overgrown now?
