Actually the story in the Herald today is that they are having fall sports but not having them. Just as ambiguous as a Baker reopening phase press conference. Apparently championships are canceled and without saying it, so is the season, but team skills are still on, lol. They try to frame that as having a season. Good luck Winter sports, writing is on the wall now.

Hockey will start in September for the schools that have rinks, skills, cones, etc..Will be interesting to see if they allow any contact like 1v1, etc... Jr, Sr, and PG kids dreams of committing to a college are gone. 01-04 birth years are toast.

If Trump loses, fake crisis over Nov. 4; if he wins, it continues.

Re: Fall ISL sports canceled

For the Prep schools in MA, If Gov Baker announces all Public Schools to go full Remote learning next year, do your Prep schools fall under this also? Curious how that works in MA?

That could possibly be the dumbest statement on the entire board. 3 to 4 birth years are all toast? Why? because you as a hockey development professional and former NHL scout, player and coach know what breeds talent and how players progress on to the next levels. You are obviously are the jealous parent of a kid who either wasn't good enough to be taken notice of by one of the prep schools or have a bubble kid in AAA and want to feel good about another year watching jr ride the pine.

If this pandemic was going to cost anyone a chance, they didn't have a chance in the first place and that is the truth. Each level of hockey is an opportunity, nothing more. The opportunity is not what makes your kid, its what your kid makes of their opportunity simple.

Your going to have to educate yourself on how college hockey recruiting works. Every year of HS hockey impacts 4-5 birth years. With this entire upcoming season being a loss, kids who are 01-04 attending Prep will not be seen by any college coaches with the confidence needed to say "We want that guy on our campus", no competition means no recruiting. PG's are toast, Seniors who have been waiting their turn are toast, Jrs who nobody knows are toast. Facts.

Hey donkey...01’s in Prep this coming year? Wow are you an idiot. Good 01’s played college this year you moron. Any 01 playing Prep this coming year has no chance of a D3 future let alone D1. Good 02’s are playing College next year. Worst case, USHL or NAHL.

Please make me laugh here. Please name a single 02 that was going to play Prep this year that has a legitimate chance of playing D1 hockey and actually playing. Name 1 please...

Mass prep schools suck. Should have went to prep in CT and NH and you wouldn't be in this mess

Re: Fall ISL sports canceled

OP - post the ISL language here please and see if your title still makes sense. Oh wait, you don’t have the letter from the ISL?? Long story short, fall sports will be very different. They may even be canceled but it’s up to the individual schools. Stick to the facts. You may end up being dead on but nothing has been officially canceled.

Re: Fall ISL sports canceled

Here is the text from the letter. . .

In our discussions related to the upcoming fall season, the health and safety of our communities has been at the forefront of our planning. While we remain committed to providing our students with meaningful athletic experiences, we will not offer the traditional full slate of league games this fall, nor will we confer league championships or awards. It is our hope that conditions will prove safe enough to allow for some interscholastic athletic competition during the Fall Season at the discretion of individual schools.

We will continue, as ISL heads of school and athletic directors, to meet regularly this summer and to collaborate across our schools to best support our students, our programs, and our communities.

Like I said, reads like a Baker phase outline press conference. Giving you a small carrot of hope to cling to when there is none. Wait until he shuts rinks down in winter and there's no skating period. Think it won't happen? The people with the loudest voices right now are not the same ones that give a crap about athletics, if anything, they're the ones typically against them. Every school across the state is going to have a news crew stationed out front waiting for that first reported case, student or teacher, and when it happens it will be a media frenzy. Every decision made going forward will be to keep kids in the classroom and if that means completely limiting outside interaction Baker will do it.
