Went to their tryouts recently, wizards appears to be a lot more popular than assabet. Is wizards better for development, or it is just that it has a better reputation and does better in recruitment and winning championships.
OP here. Thank you. I heard similar comments about skills. What about coaching? Do they both have high caliber coaches or one is doing better than another?
Daddy coaches? You CLEARLY have no idea what you're talking about. The Wizards have professional coaches (they are paid, they have no kids on the team and they stay at a particular age/tier level year after year) at 12-1, 14-1, 14-2, 14-3, 16-1, 16-2, 19-1 and 19-2 and Juniors.
When is sticking your head in the sand about turning the program around? Assabet is an embarrassment. Wizards and Eagles have been killing them for years both in games and in recruitment. Assabet had one top end group and every single one of those kids left the program. Every single one.
If you want to be part of something, make a stand against a program that stood for abuse. Just look at the press release about the whole Carl and Dennis issue. Oh wait, there wasn’t one. Child abuse, exposing yourself to a minor, molestation, anti Semitic and racist remarks - over decades. Yep, that’s a great brand.
As a former parent, that place is an embarrassment. Carl has been abusing people for decades and no one stood up to him. Well, until last year.
