Re: % of coaches kids who are truly ELITE?

What is the percentage of coaches kids who are truly elite players playing on elite teams?

I'm thinking around 3% or less?



In the BHL = none
In the E9 = none
In Fed Elite = 45%

0%. "Elite" is a made up term, you'll do better remembering that.

Elite? Youth hockey players aren't "elite." Nor are any youth hockey teams "elite." Stop buying what they're selling you.

I agree with you, but let's not pretend we still don't rank them by ability.

So, if we are getting rid of Elite, where do we go? What designation should we migrate to? Despite how it hurts your pride and your bender’s feelings we need to separate them. We need to classify them and allow them to develop within their allotted skill set.

AAA, AA, A?
Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3?
A, B, C?
Best kids, next best, benders?

Pretty sure once we move to the new paradigm the angry “C” level parents are going to start b*tching there are no true “A” players.

Re: % of coaches kids who are truly ELITE?

Let's ask the question another way... what % of coaches kids are in the top 3 or 5 players on the team?

Look at the top 6 teams at the 2006 "Elite"

3 Yes
3 No

Re: % of coaches kids who are truly ELITE?

Islanders No
Terriers No if BY still coaching. Who is third no?

Re: % of coaches kids who are truly ELITE?

Elite is College, NHL etc. Youth hockey is a business that uses the term elite to sell its product

Either way parent's of kids who aren't on the top team are going to rip the top group.

Let's just keep it "Elite" and collectively giggle as they lose their minds.

Re: % of coaches kids who are truly ELITE?

At the end of the day, the only true elite players are playing at the 08 level because that age group is stacked.
