Guys, relax. Did you see the men who won the championship tonight? None of our kids are there yet, not even close. I agree another year of lockdowns will not work for those serious about athletics, but at the same time 21 year freshmen at a D1 school
Is reality. My boy just turned 18, lives at prep and loves it there. I’m hopeful next year gives him a shot to be seen at prep,but the same time, he will not be ready to be an impact player at the NCAA level until 21. Gonna love the process and see what happens.
Teacher at prominent prep here. Do not be surprised if things are the same or worse as this past year. We are getting fitted for the heavy duty KN-95's with the replacement filters, as a precaution for the variants. Already bad news about the vaccines not being effective against them. This is being kept hush-hush due to enrollment season. Just wait until that is over. Like I said don't be surprised. If your student is coming for hockey or any sport, expect much of the same.
Seriously why do you need to go to prep to play good hockey. We live in a good public school system, plenty of kids go to Ivy's and top 50 colleges. Get good grades be well rounded, AP classes, SAT tutors and your good. Yeah you may have some good connections from Biff, but with tech breaking down all these barriers to the good old boys club, it is no longer a needed benefit. It definatly should not be for hockey. Maybe that's why we don't seeing less kids succeed from mass in D1/Pro hockey. Looks like you need they're still a lot of barriers to succeed in hockey though.
Why do you need to go to a hockey academy to play good hockey? There’s another question.
Why do kids play hockey.. there’s another question!
Many Preps have no idea what the Fall will look like. My sons has no clue, wont commit to anything.
Can’t agree with you. My kid also plays a fall varsity sport at his prep and next season is back to normal.
ISL day. Fall schedules are out including away games at MA , CT and NY boarding schools. imagine those schools will mandate vaccines like the colleges.
