Thanks.

Yeah it's a summer program that only skates tournaments. The owner has a contact list that he usually sends out emails to kids he knows, starting at the top and working his way down until he gets enough kids to fill a roster. Don't seem to be as strong as they were years ago but kids have fun because there's no practices

Thanks.

Yep, just got the follow up email not too long ago this morning since we hadn't responded to his initial email. Still deciding

Re: Boston Junior Whalers

They play in some pretty good tournaments and always seem to be seeded in the highest bracket due to their past rosters. If the kid wants to get looks from preps / jr.s and college coaches it's as good of a team as any. If the kid wants to work on his wake boarding then he should take the summer off from hockey.

Re: Boston Junior Whalers

What year are you referring to? Younger ages are the same as the other summer teams. You are paying for the owners Tahoe

The scouts are really looking into that tourney down the Cape to find there next stud. Save your money and don't buy into this nonsense

Also if you want to have your son in the same lockeroom than an hangover coach at 10am in the mroning telling story about the 2 underage girls that he bang the night before...go for it.. It is your son.

Re: Boston Junior Whalers

My kids have played in the past. The coach is young. Who hasn't been hungover in your 20's on a weekend morning? Visit the bar at the Toronto Airport Marriott on a tournament weekend. Every coach is there until all hours of the night. The rest of this story is made up by the jealous owner of some other pathetic, underperforming organization trying to make a name for themself.

Most of the teams are good. It really depends who is putting the team together. Their teams are always in the top bracket and perform well. So well, in fact, that the NAPS Beantown (cough Jr Bruins cough) won't let them in because they keep outperforming their teams. The Jr Whalers are one of many teams in the area. They are definitely on the upper end of the spring team spectrum for the area. They are also still a lot less expensive than some other teams out there.
