Interesting. . . so if they take over high school hockey does that end MIAA? If so, not likely to happen as change here is almost impossible. Great story in the Boston Globe yesterday on how the locals are confused by Open Road Tolling. Seeing as how the rest of the country has had it since 1986 it's hilarious the locals are confused by it.
Fed and USPHL housing AAU next year. You heard it here first.
Not happening here, and USA hockey already changed the designations for next year to match
8U (ages 8 and younger)
9U (ages 9 and younger)
10U (ages 10 and younger)
11U (ages 11 and younger)
12U (ages 12 and younger)
13U (ages 13 and younger)
14U (ages 14 and younger)
15U (ages 15 and younger)
16U (ages 16 and younger)
17U (ages 17 and younger)
18U (ages 18 and younger)
The reason it wont happen is because of ice time. These leagues have ice time wrapped up.
What I think you might see is a coach or two take there team to AAU that is sick of the program owners and their rules. Under the AAU umbrella the coach can put together a team, play a limited AAU schedule, but go really heavy on Super Series or other better tournaments. More travel but better competition.
The old independent true AAA route teams have taken in the past. Not a bad call and I'm sure other local teams will scrimmage them at the older ages at least.
