Running these tournaments is not easy. Securing the ice takes a lot of money up front. So please stop calling the tournament director and saying “I don’t know if I can get a team to play.” Coaches should be ashamed who fail at getting teams together. And please stop asking tourney directors to find players for you. It’s not our job. I understand that people have vacations and other sports but this year has been ridiculous. Teams can’t play, can’t get a full roster, have revolving door rosters. It makes the tourney look bad and I’m about sick of it.
Run a better tournament.
As someone that has played on a number of summer teams, we haven’t had trouble getting players but the last 2 years we have seen tournaments cancel last minute without any advanced notice a few times bc the tournament cannot get enough teams.
1 - Tourneys are a waste of time, energy and money. Yes the kids love them but parents are starting to figure out that no development occurs.
2 - Social Media likes are getting less and less on those posts of your kid at the rink in the summer. People do not care the Little Mikey is at a ****ty tournament and had a
3 - Coaches need to stop with all these tournaments.
4 - Tourney directors are s***. Get a life.
If a 12’s team won it then yes it was subpar
Problem with the ccm is there should have been 2 divisions. There were 8 teams that could play and 6 teams that couldn’t. Not sure there was AAA and AA in other age groups and not in 11 age group.
CCM was ok. Warrior 11’s we’re def subpar
Kids should be playing 40-50 games over the summer. That is when true development really starts. Putting your kid in skills and skating over the summer is such a waste. People need to realize this
Ah yes Summer Tournaments...the McDonalds drive through of hockey. It's quick, cheap and fills you up but in the end it's just not healthy. So you und up feelng like bloated tick full of regret.
If you believe bad hockey tournaments is the only activity for kids during the summer you’re a meathead and for your kids sake stop being the problem!
If this is the militia cup I want a refund. You wasted mine and my daughters time this weekend with this hack tournament. If she doesn’t come home with one of those plastic trophies tomorrow I’m gonna be ****ed.
Are you serious.
With the money you are hauling in you can’t possibly be complaining about having to do some work.
If it s too much work for you then stop doing them.
How’s the militia cup next weekend shaping up?
