I understand what NCDC and Premier is, but can someone help me understand where Elite fits in? Is it truly a step below Premiere or a grab bag of kids just to make another team?
Depends on which team. The top national bound Elite teams are very competitive and full of good young players sometimes with no better option that season. Those teams would be competitive against many Premiere and NA3HL teams. Unfortunately most other Elite teams are filled with post high school kids just keeping the dream alive and the checkbooks flowing. So again, it depends on the team.
