Re: What's happening with EHF?

anon
Can we please stop with the theory that organizations care about development - they care about MONEY. Kids will develop on their own just by playing. Every program does the same drills - there is no secret sauce. If anyone cared about development they would be 10 elite teams in the state and that's it. Owners saw that they were turning away 100 families willing to spend a lot of money so they created not only an Elite team but a AAA team...then they saw they were turning away 85 families willing to pay big money so they formed a AA team....then they saw they were turning away 60 families willing to pay big money so they formed an A team.....it goes on and on. More customers more profits....there certainly aren't more hockey studs.
They all care about money but good coaching is important. People want to be on teams that have good coaches.

Its all about the money $$. If a good coach comes through, that's just happenstance. A coach with connections, or a name, to help recruit is more important than how to coach or team build.

Re: What's happening with EHF?

It becomes obvious when an org isn't up to snuff and people leave or don't consider joining.

Re: What's happening with EHF?

Any updates on this? I'm hearing some teams will be losing elite auto bids but this likely won't be announced until after people tryout and accept contracts...

Re: What's happening with EHF?

what teams would this be happening with?

Re: What's happening with EHF?

anyone? No one has anything on this one?

This same thread has been put on for the last decade on here....nothing is going to change. Lots of money being made.
Hold up. You’ve been trolling the youth hockey dboard for over a decade?

Re: What's happening with EHF?

Re: What's happening with EHF?

Re: What's happening with EHF?

Losing elite auto bids and players
