Re: Western MA

Anon
I am a student at UMASS and we are doing a project on local ice hockey talent. We are looking for the top 2 or 3 western ma players at 02,03,04 birth years. Any help appreciated, I have also reached out to local high schools but not heard back.
Reevaluate your life. Your kids must hate you.

Well I don’t have kids but I’m now reevaluating taking local sports journalism as an elective, your towns all stink at sports. I drew ice hockey for my topic and can’t find anything helpful anywhere, you included. I’ll take 1 at any birth year. Please?

Well, "Steve," maybe you can do some proper research and contact the coaches or GMs of the hockey organizations in Western MA directly.

This place makes Wikipedia look like the Library of Congress.

Well “Anon” I did that already but you should always have a few sources before writing it. I am told the best 02 in Western MA is a female at Selects Academy, the best 03 goes to Cushing Academy in Ashburnham, MA and the best 04 goes to Pope Francis in Springfield MA. So is am looking for more information and players to add. That’s journalism “anon”

I said “coaches or GMs,” plural. You have 3 or 4 programs you can contact, plus prep and private coaches.

No one here is an authoritative source. All you’ll get here is more misinformation like what you got from whoever said a female is the best “player.”

Clearly this is a dad looking for his son to get mentioned on line. Need to get a life.

I don’t know about online but they will be in my paper. I just want to get a B or above. I talked to someone The Springfield Pics, Western MA Vipers, Springfield Rifles, and Jr Yellow Jackets. I left Messages for Pope Francis and Longmeadow High School but have not heard back.

So it looks like a lot of the better players in this area leave for Prep School? True?

Re: Western MA

Hey Steve... who did you talk to with the Pics? Was it via the website?

Re: Western MA

Those are high school years so since Western Mass ask the U16 Pics coaches who the best local 02,03,04 players are. Its their job to know even if they didn't coach them. They'd be happy to discuss.
Their contact info is on the website.

Re: Western MA

No student at any college is doing research on an online forum at 7:45 on a Saturday morning. Let alone the topic being sports in western Mass.

Seriously. You are pathetic.

Re: Western MA

What do you guys know about a company called Western MA Elite Hockey? Would that be a reliable source?

I found them on Facebook. To the poster who said 02 at Prep in Boston, 03 Prep in NH and 04 going to NCDC, can you give me initials or the schools or anything else? I looked on a site called Elite Prospects last night but it only has last years rosters and there’s like 20 prep schools in each location. I got a few more names but they are not from western ma, they just play here now, all prep kids.

A good journalist does his own research and uncovering, start working. BTW, clearly an attempt by you to get your son's name mentioned. Kinda pathetic no? BTW, i f I am going to pay a guy to represent my kid ( $3K), it is going to be to someone that is a known commodity on the prep and college scene. Not a dad that has run a few skills sessions.

On the contrary. He aspires to be a B student. Which means he’s a C student. And you know what they say about C students.

Re: Western MA

This is up on the projector in class as I type. We read all of the posts and I think we are going to check back in every Monday just to read how angry hockey parents in New England are. If you could, when you leave a comment, could you leave the state your posting from?
Results were as follows:
02: Female from Selects- confirmed, Male at Boston Prep school- unconfirmed, Male at NH Cyclones- confirmed
03: Male from Cushing Academy-confirmed, Male at NH Prep school unconfirmed, 2 Male at Jr Railers- confirmed
04: 2 Males from Pope Francis confirmed, 1 Male joining NCDC Team-unconfirmed

Thank you for helping, it has been announced that I received an A for the report, be sure to check out Amherst Wire! Go zoo!
