What's up with this club? My kid got asked on instagram to play for their 16s. Any info on coach? Club? Training protocol? Etc. Thx in advance!
Do a search above, you’ll get plenty of information. They’re one of the most talked-about teams outside of the youth level. Which isn’t a good thing.
Doesn’t mean it doesn’t represent an opportunity for your kid that he wouldn’t otherwise have. Just need to go in eyes wide open.
And don't forget the COVID..
..and the RI kids crossing into the Mass without tests or using fake Mass addresses.
Ultimately you need to blame that gullible idiot parents. At all levels but especially midgets.
Saying that, program could be good but it won’t ever. Same for Knights. Lovell brothers are to blame. They are greedy, and do not care about quality. Proof is in their records over the years.
My kid played there for a year. They scramble for bodies, the coaching is absolutely horrible and equivalent to mite or squirts when it comes to systems and actually teaching the game. No breakdown of the game, film, skills, lifting, etc...all useless flow drills...
Key metrics are to look at the kids who actually come back year over a year. Very low percentage. Single digits at best.
TL wanted my kid to play up at the advantage after he saw them at the combine. The knucklehead in Attleboro wouldn’t let it happen. Who’s to blame there? The owner for employing the drunk and me for writing the check.
Should’ve gone prep when he had an offer.
Don’t waste your time playing full season midget hockey unless the kid is good enough to play prep or USHL. It’s literally that simple.
It’s basically equivalent to parents chasing the dream and letting their kids play EHL Premier. If you are doing that as well you deserve what you’re going to get.
"Don’t waste your time playing full season midget hockey unless the kid is good enough to play prep or USHL. It’s literally that simple."
No its not. That is literally stupid.
First please don't equate prep and the USHL. Not even close.
Second, some midget players do very well going the Tier 2 route (NAHL, BCHL, NCDC).
Its never that simple.
I can only speak for the team that my son is on for giants and they have been shut down for 12 days now with an email being sent out from program. Just because one team has covid the entire building doesn’t have to shut down but sure you can go to NESV on Saturday I’m sure you’ll be able to watch one of the 48 midget teams they have playing. You idiots are the reason why my son has to be tested once a week to get into the building.
Sorry your kid got cut from the Giants.
First off. Nobody has ever been cut from the giants in the history of the program.
Secondly. Director is a great guy. Love him.
So what isn’t true ? That the 16 teams are awful ? Because even the director agrees with that.
Programs isn’t the issue. The issue is the number of 16 teams out of that rink and area are not feasible.
U16’s are three weeks in.
0-18 for the 16’s.
Wait what ? How many games did the U16 teams play ? According to my hockey ranking BHL teams are 4-10-3
Those are parity games. Look who they played.
And they were able to squeak out two ties by playing each other !
I am pretty sure Dwyer's U18 95 Giants is playing teams in the BHL deaf and blind division. Who would have their kid play for that guy, against that competition?! Yuck.
The kids are definitely not helping themselves come high school tryouts playing against kids who will be cut from varsity or play on the 5th line. Of course, unless you are Dwyer's kid, then you are 1st Line, PP1 and SH1, even though you have never won a puck battle in your life.
Who Dat's kid must have got cut and daddy realizing all the money he wasted. Boo hoo.
Was it another 0-6 weekend for the 16’s ?
