Consider yourself lucky if your town has an Elite VHL team. The meatheads on this board won't get it, but this is really good hockey.
Older son played VHL from start to finish. Usually in top third of the divisions, which was fine. But during Bantams, a bunch of disillusioned kids came back from Islanders, etc, and his town team made Elite VHL. It was pretty **** good hockey.
BTW. My younger son left town after 2 of his 4 mite years and is in his seventh year of a so-called elite club program, so I have a frame of reference.
Bash all you want. This is the truth.
Also, sorry your kid would get cut from an elite VHL team.
This year VHL Squirt had great group of teams in 2 Elite Divisions.. and yes it was good hockey.. are those team going to beat Eagles, Lovell and IHC..Hell No but they can skate w. their t1, select, 2nd teams and their counterparts all day.
