Me and my 18 year old son had a conversation this morning with an Advisor that wanted us to sign up with him. We brought this up and his answer was "Yeah, we can get on a good USPHL Premier team as the NCDC teams are pretty well set for next year" Needless to say we are not signing up with him or paying to play Premier. Time for college, maybe play club if the schools even offer it next year.
Advisor is actually right. There are some teams out there that are already developing their u16 kids for playing on their junior teams next year.
It’s not the U16 kids taking spots on NCDC teams. It’s the older kids who need to know they have a place to play next year. Very few Kids playing U16 this year will be on a NCDC team never mind NAHL or USHL.
