Re: Hockey Academy’s

Economics
Supply and demand. Everyone thinks their kid is Elite and headed for a D1 scholarship. What better way to achieve that then sending them to a sports school where they can skate in between class? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Not all Hockey Academies are created equal.
SSM and MSC are the only two legit ‘academies’. The prof is in the pudding for all those “everything and everyone sucks” grand daddies out there

Agree. For starters, stay away from anywhere that offers school “online.” After our experience during the pandemic, we will NEVER go that route.

BK and South Kent as well...

Re: Hockey Academy’s

BK and South Kent are nowhere near Mount and Shattuk

Re: Hockey Academy’s

NB at BHA disagrees with all of you!

Re: Hockey Academy’s

BHA is trying to make up for lost revenue. 40K for a day student 57 for a boarder plus a 10K meal plan. They'd have to being Gordie Howe and Pat Burns back from the dead and have them coach for that kind of money

BK is a complete joke. Hockey is meh and academics are a complete joke. Son went there 2 years ago and came home way dumber than he originally was and his hockey didn’t get much better.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Watched AP vs. Archies game tonight. AP is a ****y, classless team. Waving at the Archies bench after goals, whining to the refs, cheapshots, pathetic display of sportsmanship. Guess they are being groomed to represent Gallant and the hockey academy that will soon take over AP. :grin:

Here's something to think about...

If AP does the academy thing, who are they going to play against? No one over pee pee hockey gives a crap about RG. Teams like Shattuck, MSC, St. Andrews, etc are not going to waste their time playing against them. Same with the Michigan teams. Even BHA which has two NHL scouts under their belt can even schedule games with the real teams.

Buyer beware. The are only two academy teams to consider. Shattuck and MSC. Period.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Should have typed "can't even schedule games with the real teams." Sorry.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Classless? What about the archies parent that grabbed an AP kid after the game. Nice example of parenting. They are high school kids, it’s a game, you don’t want him to get hurt … put him in bubble wrap and take up chess.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Classless . What about the archies parent that grabbed the AP kid after the game, Nice parenting example it’s a game. If you don’t want your son getting hurt put him in bubble wrap and take him off the ice.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

I have ZERO ties to them whatsoever, and can't speak for the academics, but exactly how is BK hockey "meh"? Their 14s are 10th, their 15s are 3rd and 16s are 7th. Seems pretty legit to me, no?

Re: Hockey Academy’s

AP just announced they are joining the NEPSAC. Leaving MIAA

Great! Now they fall under the category of prep schools that we don't trust anymore making decisions about cancelling games. Good luck to you.

Prep hockey is going to look very different next year.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

they are not that good in miaa. so why not leave

BK didn’t exist 2 years ago! Nice try! U16 went to semi finals of nationals last year and lost in overtime. Where was mount? Oh yeah they lost to BK every time they met.

Do some research (it won’t be very hard, all scores are listed on MHR) and then post Mount v BK record from this season.
Here’s a quick hint, it’s very lob sided

I don’t have to do research. I lived it. Obviously since nationals was mentioned in the last post it was directed to last season. Prior to this season mount has never beat the BK U16 team from last year. PS the U16 BK team was formally the South Kent U15 team that beat mount at states in 2019. Nevertheless, the point of the post was BK Selects didn’t exist 2 years ago. Most players came from South Kent 2019-2020.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Hey Bozo,
Let’s not live in the past. Why don’t you take a look at college list/NHL draft picks?
Did you “live” that too?
🤡

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Hahaaaaaa well obviously my kid is only 17! BK has only been around for 1 year. The highest age group BK ever had are currently only 18. The post I was replying to was the guy who said his kid went to BK 2 years ago.. which once again didn’t exist. I have no dog in the fight for this season, as my kid is currently playing junior hockey.

Re: Hockey Academy’s

Just seems to me like someone ****ed in the BK guys lemonade

Re: Hockey Academy’s

HA’s are a good option for some and not the right fit for others.
End of story
