Re: When your bender is destined for the 4th team.....

If your town program has a team in the top division the level of hockey will be about the same at half the cost. You’ll still most likely have a lack of development issue though. If the club program has decent skills suck it up and pay. Most town programs are useless to any kids past squirt level.

bender is on the 4th team and u guys are talking about development ! kid is a town player, it's only about having fun now, there ain't gonna b no development.

Flames have like 6 teams at each age group.

Terriers and Islanders
Terriers had somewhat light numbers last season but completely opposite for tryouts this year. They’re going to have a lot of teams next season.

Let the kid have fun if he isn’t a top player. Don’t chase it. Play town sit back and chill. He obviously won’t play D1 so relax and let him have fun.

This depends if you want your kid to play varsity high school as well though? Very hard to make most decent varsity squads as a town only player.

Amd you think they are making it by being on a clubs 4th team ?

No chance that fourth team is better than town.

Re: When your bender is destined for the 4th team.....

Town hockey is recreational hockey. Like playing pick-up basketball down at the local gym. Yeah it's fun but it isn't going to get you onto the varsity basketball team if you barely know the game or the rules.

Town Hockey and consistent private skating and skills lessons got my bender 2.5 years of Varsity hockey. High school coach didn't care he was never on a club hockey org.
