How do you think the numbers will be at tryouts,
They're doing it right. The skills instructors are excellent. The numbers will be there because of the quality of the coaching.
Serious question - is the long term outlook for these teams to enter EHF elite teams? Seems an awful lot of new teams (between E9 and EHF) for a limited player pool?
EHF is slow to allow in any new teams into the Elite club, if at all. Also $100k+ to get in. I would not hold your breath waiting.
Agreed, Vipers tried and failed.
Sorry. Wrong. Elite EHF teams can't be within so many miles of one another.
I am not sure there is an official rule for that. I only heard that the bandits were suing the breakers (or threatening to sue) because Kingston was to close BW. I think thats why they have their Rockland Rink listed. But again, it is hearsay.
Wrong. Breakers outside range. TS complains because he is a chubby pud who can't bring in talent. Breakers have Rockland ice to steal BA players and because they have like 68 teams..
Great turnout for tryouts across the board.
Counted almost 70 players at the 2002-2003 tryouts tonight. Bunch of Boch and Crimson helmets.
Numbers looked good at 04-05 level the 05 team if picked correctly will be competitive 1st year But i did not see any 05 goalies which might be a problem,
05 team no goalie gonna be a disaster. All goalies taken so kids gonna have to rotate.
Yes they did. Players did not look like they came from town programs. A Lot of stickers on helmets.
