Re: Ccm 68 busts

The real catch is these kids here, even at a later age still rarely 'make it' to meaningful hockey.
Any idea why this happens? It's interesting that some kids seem so amazing at 8 and 10 years old...then just kind of become average in high school. I wonder if it's loss or interest or changes in body/hormones due to puberty?

These things are really something a parent can't prevent or control.

Re: Ccm 68 busts

I have news for you...the same thing is going to happen to 1/3 of the kids at STX 68. Many will get passed by in the next few years. Being early to puberty is not a substitution for IQ and skill.
