If black is town hockey, is E9 learn to skate or ice dancing?

Re: Tier 1 Black or Town A?

I'm going to assume this question isn't a troll job, and you're specifically asking because of COVID concerns this year.

Personally I'm skeptical there will be a town season. Town programs are non-profits and are unlikely to have a season if the schools cancel fall sports. Club teams are for-profit and in many cases have already taken in deposits, and will do everything they can to have a season. But unless MA opens up, we may be looking at a practice-heavy + a few NH tournaments this year, which would be a terrible waste of money, but at least you'll get some hockey.

So I'd go with T1B, obviously.

Play for the better coach. Foregone conclusion that T1 Black is better generally speaking. But what should be the deciding factor is coaching.

Re: Tier 1 Black or Town A?

Looks like NY will not allow hockey teams to travel out of state for games and not allow out of state teams in. So if Mass follows suit town hockey could be the way to go.

Because, somehow, magically, Town hockey will solve all its ills?

How about MA club teams play MA club teams? There are plenty.

But, don't let me stop you from ending your kid's hockey career. He can watch from the bench as all the club kids "double dip."

After many seasons in white my boy’s team has finally made the black division. He has also made the town A team and should be one of the key players this season. Given the uncertainty around this upcoming season will we be ok just letting him play town?
If you want your kid to play in the better league with better level of play let him play Fed black, but not all players are cut out for that level. If you kid is going to fit better at the town level of play let him play town or fed white. It all depends on where your kid fits best.

Re: Tier 1 Black or Town A?

My kids tier 1 white team played a town A tournament in Marlboro last season, at the invite of the Marlboro rink to fill out the schedule. Finished 5-0 after outscoring the other teams 53-1. Don't give me any of this Tier 1 is the same as town crap. It was a total **** show. For the record, we played in white but if parity had actually been followed the team only qualified for silver. (got handed a gift when the vipers folded)
