What is the best route as far as developing a young female player? IS IT WISE TO PLAY FOR THESE U8/U10 teams to get into the female programs or to stay with the boys team as long as making it. Who are the better girls programs?

The best girls' programs will tell you to stay with the boys as long as possible, then make the leap after/during peewees. Best girls programs are probably Assabet, ECW and BJE but my information may not be up to the minute.

Year after year those are the top 3 girls programs, hands down.

WHAT ABOUT THE BREAKERS ? THEY SEEM TO HAVE GREAT NUMBERS AND WINS. BJE LOOKS LIKE THEY RUN A SOLID PROGRAM

BJE have done well at the older age groups but their younger teams struggle across the board. Look at the teams in the T1 and T2 state tournament finals this year. U14 and lower - BJE had 1 team (14U T1), Vipers had 1 team, Islanders had 1 team, BSB had 4 teams, Wizards had 5 teams (Assabet had 0 teams for the record).

Wizards have probably taken over as the top notch program from Assabet. followed by Breakers. the rest has good to great age specific teams, so it is going to depend what age group you are looking for.

BSB cheated - at least at U10 but probably at other levels also. Wizards are alone at the top.

BS! How do you believe they cheated? I have a daughter on a team that lost to them and a very close friend with a daughter on that team and I have heard nothing but great things about the team and the coaches so back it up - otherwise just huddle up with the fam and have a good cry before bed time instead of posting lies on the dboard.

Re: GIRLS

New players show up at States that were never seen throughout the season. At least get them matching uniforms so they don't stick out as much. Like I said - cheaters.

I have a U12 so I can't speak for the U10 team but I find it pretty funny that anyone is talking about the Breakers doing this when the Wizards pulled such a blatant version of this last year!

Everyone knows at this age most of the girls play on boys teams as well, not having matching unis is hardly proof of cheating. Are we talking four or five new kids or just a couple - was it a goalie? If it's just a couple of kids and not a goalie then get over it - barely even qualifies as cheating. If it's four or five or a goalie then protest and take the banner back!

I'm not sure there is a rule about what the threshold is for non rostered players playing before it reaches "hardly cheating" vs legit cheating. I'm still tryouts to wrap my head around the fact that it's clear you think it's ok for that to occur. And we have all seen the occasional kid who forgets a jersey but I assure you I can count on one hand how many times it happened all season on my kids team this year so multiple kids in multiple non matching jerseys is a concern. However, what speaks volumes is that this is all standard and OK with you

No dog in the fight, but the poster didn't say "hardly cheating." They said "hardly proof of cheating." You're twisting the poster's words around.

Now, how about going back to the OP's question and stop ******* on each other's legs.

This is complete bullsh**t! There were no non matching jerseys on that team! Not even one. Where do you people come up with this crap? There were fourteen full time players, two alternates and a goalie on the team that played in the tournament. The two alternates played all year whenever they were needed. Both of the alternates played in well over the minimum number of games. If you didn't see them during the year then they just weren't at your games. Both alternates had team jerseys and socks and wore exactly what they wore to games all year long. You are cheapening a legitimate accomplishment of a group of 10 year old girls, have some class. You're team is playing at the highest level of girls hockey, you should be looking to play against the best talent out there but you're crying because there was a team better than yours instead. You lost to a better TEAM, not to a pair of kids you haven't seen before. Learn how to lose gracefully - wft!?

Re: GIRLS

sounds like a sore loser. no one cheated. better TEAM won.

Re: GIRLS

the Breaker U10 girls were there all year and more importantly on the roster. Our goalie played all 45 games and she was great. did you notice how many players they had? 6 D and 10 forwards. why? because a bunch of them play on multiple teams so they missed games due to conflicts. Boys do the same thing so stop being a hypocrit. More importantly, let me remind you it is 10 year old girls hockey? it was a great game and sorry your team lost.

The best girls' programs will tell you to stay with the boys as long as possible, then make the leap after/during peewees. Best girls programs are probably Assabet, ECW and BJE but my information may not be up to the minute.

Top to bottom, I suppose. But if you look at MHR, they aren't Top 3 in all age groups.

From taking with dads with daughters, I think BSB has a decent girls program, as do the Shamrocks at the older ages. The Islanders do well, too. I also remember some talk when there were girls threads on the Board about the Mass Spitfires out of Foxboro. I'm sure MMF can't be terrible, if that geography helps.

And I doubt Carl Grey (the lunatic he is) and the Fuscos are going to tell you to have them play with the the boys as long as they can. Whether it's true or not, I don't know.

BSB, Wizards - As for developing a female player IT IS CRITICAL TO PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL PLAYER AND WHAT THEY WANT!!!!!!! The most important thing is to allow your daughter to develop a passion for the game. Some girls love PLAYING WITH GIRLS and forcing them to PLAY WITH BOYS just drives some of the fun out of the game. SOME GIRLS LIKE PLAYING WITH BOYS and place a higher priority on the game itself and would be less excited about playing ALL GIRLS HOCKEY! If you do go all girls you will probably have to supplement with skills or town though because they typically get less ice time. GOOD LUCK!!!

Re: GIRLS

great post. Wizards, Breakers and Assabet are all on top. Breakers girls won at least 2 titles last weekend and I know Wizards won a bunch. I think the Wizards were in like 8 finals. seems like a great program along with Breakers and Assabet. Eagles are good across all levels, boys and girls

Interesting analysis. Assabet wasn't in a single final but they're on top? Eagles were only in one final but they're good across all levels? Wizards were in 8 finals but there were only six finals total? Wiz won 3 (2 T2 and 1 T1), BSB won 2 (2 T1) & Vipers won 1 (T2).

between U10 and U14 (T1 & T2) ECW were in five finals won three, BSB were in four finals won two, Vipers one for one and Eagles one for one.

Re: GIRLS

Second, not many care about Tier 1

Re: GIRLS

The longer the girls compete with the boys is better for development however, in most cases the girls miss out on the most important part of youth sports, the camaraderie of teammates. Sure the boys are are nice at the rink and with her before and during games but they miss out the bigger picture,the true friendships,the sleepovers and the hangouts it just the nature there is always an isolation. Of course I am not talking about the 8 year olds who are only there for the NHL training but for realistic parents don't lose focus. At least have your daughter play full time on a girls team and be an alternate on boys team if they want to.

Re: GIRLS

Stay with boys through U10 or U12 then get them with their peers. They will have more fun with the girls and when they are having fun they don't mind working hard. Keep them happy because the possibilities for girls are so much better than boys, at least in percentage of players who get scholarships or recruited to an Ivy.

Wizards are #1 program in Mass and it isn't close. But some don't think too highly of their owner.
Assabet clear #2. (What a fall from grace) Starting to make a comeback. They will be back, but never to where they were just a couple of years ago.
Breakers are #3, though they have some "interesting parents."
Spitfires are probably next. Word is their "leader" never shows up.
then the Islanders and the Eagles.
Eagles have one dominant team, actually one dominant year, but nothing else. U19 team went 7-16-1 this year. U14 19-18-2, U12 21-16-5. So 47-50-8 across their other teams. When BJE loses LR, KB, SN, MS and KT in 13 months, their program will be in the toilet.
Flames are a dumpster fire, as in Charles River.
Shamrocks used to have a good program, but it imploded last year
Falcons, Vipers and the Pride are irrelevant. Play for these teams if location is your #1 priority.

a look at average winning percentage of each tier 1 team at 12, 14, 16 and 19. Not divided by number of games because u12 play a lot more games.
ECW 74%
ASS 62%
BJE 59%
BSB 53%
MAS 51%

ECW won U14 and U19 states, BJE U16.
ECW sending U16 as an at large team, so all three teams going to nationals.
BJE sending one team
Assabet likely sending one
Breakers likely sending one
Spitfres likely sending none
Oh and ECW won Assabet U12 invitational tournament.

I stand by my not even close statement.

Agree with part 1 completely. The top girls players typically stay with the boys through U12 but have definitely moved on by Bantams. If you doubt it, look at some of the earlier posts complaining that the Breakers brought in kids who hadn't played during the season to win one of the titles. Where do you think those kids have been playing all season - town girls? Doubt it - I would bet the bank that they pulled a few girls off of their boy's teams, probably had them rostered all year since they are in the same org. They probably got their game requirements at home games throughout the season. The top girls are all playing boys as long as they can.

From U16-U10 T1 and T2
Wizards appeared in 5 finals, winning 3
Breakers appeared in 4 finals, winning 2
BJE appeared in 3 finals, winning 1
Assabet appeared in 2 finals, winning 1
Vipers were 1 for 1
Islanders were 0 for 1

This tells the story - Wizards over Breakers by 1. Poster was correct, BJE success was entirely at the older levels, two U16 teams and top U14 team were in the finals. Assabet's only appearances were also at the U16 level. Wizards and Breakers were strong from U10 to U14. Wizards seem to have taken over for Assabet and the Breakers have taken over the number two spot that the Wizards were in. Maybe karma is finally catching up to old Carl.

This is pure crap, Tier 2 is for kids who can't play or are not good enough to play with the better kids when they are the younger of the 2 combined ages, those are like the Bruins hanging a Prince of Wales banner!

I would also suggest sometimes winning the State title means you had a good weekend not that you were the best team over 7 months,

Keep them happy because the possibilities for girls are so much better than boys, at least in percentage of players who get scholarships or recruited to an Ivy.

Wizards are #1 program in Mass and it isn't close. But some don't think too highly of their owner.
Assabet clear #2. (What a fall from grace) Starting to make a comeback. They will be back, but never to where they were just a couple of years ago.
Breakers are #3, though they have some "interesting parents."
Spitfires are probably next. Word is their "leader" never shows up.
then the Islanders and the Eagles.
Eagles have one dominant team, actually one dominant year, but nothing else. U19 team went 7-16-1 this year. U14 19-18-2, U12 21-16-5. So 47-50-8 across their other teams. When BJE loses LR, KB, SN, MS and KT in 13 months, their program will be in the toilet.
Flames are a dumpster fire, as in Charles River.
Shamrocks used to have a good program, but it imploded last year
Falcons, Vipers and the Pride are irrelevant. Play for these teams if location is your #1 priority.

Agree with part 1 completely. The top girls players typically stay with the boys through U12 but have definitely moved on by Bantams. If you doubt it, look at some of the earlier posts complaining that the Breakers brought in kids who hadn't played during the season to win one of the titles. Where do you think those kids have been playing all season - town girls? Doubt it - I would bet the bank that they pulled a few girls off of their boy's teams, probably had them rostered all year since they are in the same org. They probably got their game requirements at home games throughout the season. The top girls are all playing boys as long as they can.

From U16-U10 T1 and T2
Wizards appeared in 5 finals, winning 3
Breakers appeared in 4 finals, winning 2
BJE appeared in 3 finals, winning 1
Assabet appeared in 2 finals, winning 1
Vipers were 1 for 1
Islanders were 0 for 1

This tells the story - Wizards over Breakers by 1. Poster was correct, BJE success was entirely at the older levels, two U16 teams and top U14 team were in the finals. Assabet's only appearances were also at the U16 level. Wizards and Breakers were strong from U10 to U14. Wizards seem to have taken over for Assabet and the Breakers have taken over the number two spot that the Wizards were in. Maybe karma is finally catching up to old Carl.


This is pure crap, Tier 2 is for kids who can't play or are not good enough to play with the better kids when they are the younger of the 2 combined ages, those are like the Bruins hanging a Prince of Wales banner!

I would also suggest sometimes winning the State title means you had a good weekend not that you were the best team over 7 months,


you have no clue what you are talking about, for the most part Tier 2 are the younger age group. so it is really u11 and u12, u13 and 14.

and if you look at the teams winning, for the most part you see these are the teams that are also successful during the regular season. successful being in the top 3.

BTW your top 3 claim is nonsense as well, the U 12 Breakers were a 4th place team that had a good weekend at the Wizards expense, over 7 months they were not of the caliber of Wiz Assabet or even Blazers

The old man's 2017-2018 U14 Tier 1 team is already a dream team, on the strength of the 03s plus the two 04s (goalie and skater) who played with them this season. As long as the coaching doesn't mess them up, which is a distinct possibility.

Last year's 03 group at Assabet (on 2 teams) was much better than last year's 03 Wizard team. Most of the "new" Assabet girls aren't nearly as good as they believe, but there is one ex-Wizard who will add to the team, and the BSB girl certainly will. Let's see what the coach does with this group. It should be interesting to see who plays and who does not....and whether that blows up.

They already had the best 03 D player in house, they stole the best 03 forward and now they have the best 04 forward and a top 2 04 D coming up.

Funny that dads of 14 year old girls are having a ******* contest over whose team is better like U14 Nattys are the end game. Maybe for CG they are, but does anyone care that the rest of the country has passed us by in girls development (or boys, for that matter). Maybe we should stop trying to be the King of MA and figure out why our girls' development is lacking? Something isn't working very well, despite what many parents of our 14 year old prodigies may want to believe. Who is the next Carla Barnes or Jincy Dunne? Likely not playing U14 in MA.

So if you beat Mission and lose 1 zip to Mississagua who beat the eventual champion you can't compete at that level?



Beat Mission in a meaningless game. Congratulations. Good luck with the season. May you win all your consolation games!



ok bro, saw the Pittsburgh game good luck!!!! we shall see



Funny that dads of 14 year old girls are having a ******* contest over whose team is better like U14 Nattys are the end game. Maybe for CG they are, but does anyone care that the rest of the country has passed us by in girls development (or boys, for that matter). Maybe we should stop trying to be the King of MA and figure out why our girls' development is lacking? Something isn't working very well, despite what many parents of our 14 year old prodigies may want to believe. Who is the next Carla Barnes or Jincy Dunne? Likely not playing U14 in MA. Neither of them did.



Jincy Dunne? Who wrote this Jincy Dunne's mom?

Agreed that no MA teams can compete at that level. MA hockey needs to look at MN to see what they are doing? MN was the best team. Faster, more aggressive than anyone else there. Granted it was an AllStar team, but not many of the MA top girls would make the MN team, in spite of what their parents think.

If you lose to MN by one goal then you compete. agree with Little Ceasars, probably 4 maybe 5 could have won that tournament. Wake up call for MA girls. Across the age groups, there are a few that could compete. Puckhandling, forecheck, backcheck, passing, size and speed of these girls were all far superior.

Yes, I guess that is competitive by your measure. But when you watch one team consistently win every puck battle and control the game for 75% of the game you have to question if MA Hockey hasn't fallen behind the times. Look, we are on the same side, we want MA Hockey to be stronger, but it's just not there right now. We can thump our chests, call it a lull, or have a critical look at the development of the game in MA.

Does anyone really think MA had the top talent this last weekend?

My "measure" is how does a Wizard dad draw conclusions on a Assabet Mississagua game this specific ? Please don't tell me you drove to the rink for a 9pm game to watch kids who are not your daughter???

Not Wizards dad, but - were you there? There were plenty of other girls there from other teams, watching each other play. And by extension their parents. This is not 10 yr old hockey anymore. Especially because these girls remain friends across teams even if they have changed teams.
