Re: 95 Giants

Hmm, they seemed to be raking it in this past weekend with 40+ teams in a tourney there, with the newly opened restaurant packed daily, and the construction continuing with the Frozen Yogurt place. Seem to be doing okay !


Please stop with this bad self-promotion and inferiority complex defense mechanism. Its embarrassing. The rink didn't have 40 teams in a tournament, the Giants didn't have 40 teams in a tournament, it was a 3rd party purchaser that rented the ice. That would be like saying RB at Walpole is on top of the world because Chowder Cup rents his ice.

It looks really bad when the same person comes on and says that stuff. Enough...


okay. I will bite.


So who was the third party purchaser ? Lovell guy, perhaps ?

And who cares who is footing the bill for the ice rental if you can fill the place up with 40 teams, their parents and siblings for the weekend. Bar was making money, restaurant was making money, pro shop was making money, arcade was making money.

I don't see how having a rink full for the weekend is bad ? Would you like them to run the tourney and take away the 1500 bucks each team owner made, that wont happen.

I am not defending the place or affiliated with the place or programs, just stating what I saw being there over the weekend.

Re: 95 Giants

What incident are you referring to with OSHA? If you are talking about the guy falling, that was at NESC(Marlboro), not NESV.

Re: 95 Giants

Is RB buying the complex? He has done very well in Walpole. When will the turf fields be complete? Is the water slide up yet?

Re: 95 Giants

Any truth to RB buying out these guys.

Re: 95 Giants

Are you referring to the RB that is underwater in Walpole due to his personal vices? The guy that is losing his juniors program because of all the changes to the USPHL? EHL becoming defunct after this year? The youth program where any good player basically left? Now filling premier teams with KPW and Medfield town players? Yeah, he is definitely buying the ne sports Village

Re: 95 Giants

PROSPECTS FEST ’17, anyone doing this its only 399.00 for 4 games what a deal..

You are right, I know at least seven kids that were cut from other programs that were welcomed with open arms in Walpole !!

its only been 2 seasons. slow down. they will be fine.

Re: 95 Giants

Just moved to area, is this a good starter program to join, I missed tryouts earlier this year so I have limited choices, the board does not seem to be in favor of program.

What birth year is your kid? If just starting Mites, you could be fine and let it develop as you go. If older, then you owe it to yourself to shop around. At the very least watch a practice or go to LIveBarn and watch games from last year to see how it looks.

In my experience any coach is more than willing to come have your kid skate at a practice with his team and give you honest feedback as to where your kid stands.

Make some calls or better yet show up and see what the team looks like in a couple of weeks when practice starts. While teams are essentially "formed" all of them have 3-4 spots typically for alternates or last minute additions.

Re: 95 Giants

Thanks for the info, I have a call into SSK and into RI saints both seem like a better choice then 95 Giants for my son. Appreciate your feedback.

Re: 95 Giants

What birth year.

Re: 95 Giants

He is a 2005

Re: 95 Giants

ANON
He is a 2005


What level (Tier 1 Elite? Lower?) did your son play last year?

If he is a top player, I suppose you'll have options.

Personally, I would check out any program (yes, even the Giants) that will consider you at this point since your options are going to be limited.

You mentioned other possible choices (Saints and Kings). I don't have an opinion about either program. Maybe others will be able to help you.

Good luck.

Re: 95 Giants

My kids did make Giants teams. Why wouldn't I be excites to get the best arena in Mass and the best skills too?


Why wouldn't you be excited ? Because your kids made the Giants ! That is why you shouldn't be excited, but if you are picking your team based on the newest arena, then I guess you would be excited.

I think the actual fact is your kid could not make any other team if they are playing at the Giants and they just happen to have a new arena.

Not me.... I was referring to the 11,12,13 year olds. Why, are the younger divisions just as bad as the pee-wee's ?
