Another great team by the Lovell's when will parents wake up...


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

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.

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.

As far as Valley League teams are concerned.

Re: 95 Giants

No way! These two teams in particular should compete in E9 next season.

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 ?
