The Kings declined relative to the other top teams nationally and internationally. At younger ages they were as good or better than the best teams out there but as they got older the other top teams in the US and Canada teams continued to develop. In the small pond they were still at or near the top but teams like Westchester improved and eventually passed them. What were the other programs doing to develop their players better. Was it as simple as better coaching, or more emphasis on individual skill development? Or were most of these kids early developers and the pack caught up as they got older?
PR moving on. Gonna be tough.
This is exactly what the Kings did this year I bring certain players in. Great local team, subpar national team. Sorry to hit you with that dose of reality. Also, never have and never will be a big game team. Always lose when it counts.
