I know the Valley league has one. Is there any other leagues around??
Yeah. They are called baseball, soccer and lacrosse
Why not these sports *and* hockey?
There's a contingent of people here that insist kids will "burn out" if they play the sport year round. Maybe some kids will. Maybe it's riskier the younger they are, if the parent is pushing them too hard.
Every kid is different. Do what's right for your kid, and help the next guy do what he thinks is right for his.
