If the end-goal is realistic and aimed toward playing in college then you move on to F.S.; if the kid get playing time (again, usually as a forward) as a freshmen / sophomore then two years high school and then off to prep for a repeat year or then off to a real f.s. team. Staying in high school hockey does less than zero for the kid's game and there are tons of examples of the 'all-region' 14 year old players flaming-out before their senior year of h.s. hockey. Bad hockey, bad habits, bad coaching only pushes the kid's game one direction and that is down.
