Walpole Express Parents and Players,
I hope all is well! As tryouts are quickly approaching, I wanted to send an email along regarding the process for the 2017-2018 season. I wanted to let everyone know that our teams have been accepted and will be participating in the E9/BHL next year. The E9/BHL is considered one of the top leagues in New England and we are proud to be involved. We will also have teams that participate in the Premier league. This is a crazy time of year for parents and players as they set their plans for the following season and hopefully this email will answer many of your questions...
Also of note was news that they are converting the 3rd floor observation area between the rinks into a Fitness Center and hiring a company to run dry-land training out of the new space.
As a coach, I'm hoping this news brings some new talent to tryouts, which start March 3rd. Full season teams from U14 to mite major.
If you'd like to talk to a coach or come to a practice, their contact info can be found here: http://www.walpoleexpress.com/youth/rosters-premier.shtml
Best of luck with the rest of your season!
I hope they explain to parents that if they don't do well in parity then they are not in the league, and trust me. At some levels they will not be in the league as they currently stand !
Is the premier the lower division of BHL?
Lots of movement this year , Monarchs heading to fed ......
Close but the reality is:
1) Top ehf elite
2) Middle ehf elite/ top E9
3) Lower ehf elite/mid E9/top ehf T1B
4) Low ehf T1B/Low E9
5) Ehf T1W/bhl American
6) The rest doesn't really matter.
This is just my experience and between 3 boys, I've seen almost all of these levels.
No way is the T1 white better then American. Maybe the last place team but that's it I know of plenty of American teams that beat T1 teams the season. Sorry to burst your bubble T1 white parent.
Agreed - just look at results in JWK. 5th place American team (Giants) beat 3 T1 white teams including first place team (DS hawks) twice.
Thats a joke. or BHL is desp. X, may have 3 comp. teams in elite & prem. most in last or close to last. They couldn't even beat v.l. Their select teams are painful to watch. Had few successful teams last year, lost some good players and now most teams have tanked. They had other teams 03 & 04 move up a level and they can't stop a beach ball or tap one in. It's all there in black n white. No my kids doesn't play, didn't get cut, just fed up with this watered down hockey imploding New England
All Walpole Express teams stink...they are not even really playing hockey. If you're playing at that level...give up hockey and try something else if you want something that can occupy your time comes high school
10-15 years ago there was the Metro League and just a couple of outside skills and teams. N.E.H. was one of the first where high school kids would go to work to try to improve. . . how we all forget.
This is even more proof that the Lovell boys are just in it for the money. Why would they let a local competitor in their region, especially that dirtbag? Check please.
Reality is that e9/BHL is put in panic mode. Teams being beat by EHF at all levels and even MPDHL. Subpar league. They have no solution for U14 and above as they are non-factor and terrible hockey. Their great idea of a few years ago has fizzled. Not during the talent they thought they would. Now they just simply need teams and numbers.
Great.. they can play the lower 05 Hurricanes (TA) team in BHL (the one that was at the bottom of MPHL). The elite team and coach just left the hurricanes organization so there will no longer be an 05 hurricanes team or now it will be called Total Athletics competing in the E9 parity. One or two kids will stay but since Sarg is the new 05 head coach most are gone...
That bottom 05 Hurricanes team and the 05 Express team will not even make it into the BHL !!
Ol' WN already got them in...it will be full of Barnstable town kids. Actually not sure those kids will even play for Captain Underpants/Sarg. He must have already scared them all away. Run run as fast as you can...
Someone tell Sherman to pull out while he has any $$ left...
