Answer this. What % of players should be considered elite? The only “Elite” league is EHF. E9 has a few elite teams per year so let’s be real and say that only 12-13 truly elite teams exist in New England. So my opinion yes the EHL Elite should keep the title “Elite” and the E9 could possibly be considered “Elite”. No other league in New England should be able to
label their league as elite. Problem solved.
Hey Clown. Again, answer my question. What % of player should be considered “Elite”?
I’m not sold that a program can be elite. Geographic location has more to do with program success than some magic button that parents believe certain programs have.
This is all sounding like the old 'Metro League' before the parents all got engaged in this skating, skills, hockey arms race and the owners all took it in and offered more, more, more until their bank accounts were stuffed.
And remember many kids who aren't 'élite' at 12 will be at 17. They need somewhere to improve.
